unique characters, exciting new mechanics, and innovative new ways to play the game.

DESCENT: JOURNEYS IN THE DARK BOARDGAME
Deep below the earth lies a bottomless realm of foul creatures and evil magic. From time
to time, the weakest of these monsters boil up out of the earth to attack the cities of the
surface realm, but only the mightiest heroes dare to take the battle back down below to
the domain of the Overlords. Can you survive the Dark? Descent fuses the acclaimed dice
system first introduced in Doom: the Board Game with the exciting world of Runebound
to create the next generation of dungeon-crawling board game. Take the action further
with more monsters, more deathtraps, and more treasure than your heroes can carry!
Scheduled to ship in September 2005.
FFG KN-11N $79.95

MIDNIGHT: HEART OF SHADOW
The Heart of Shadow is the breeding place of Izrador’s chosen, the savage orcs, and his
messengers and priests, the vile legates. It is a land without mercy and without life. Arm
yourself and tread carefully, for none have yet returned to tell of the dangers to be found
in the Heart of Shadow. This d20 sourcebook for Midnight introduces new sub-races of
orcs, goblins, giants, and men, and includes maps, adventure hooks, and local rumors,
plus new feats, prestige classes, charms, and equipment for survival north of the Fortress
Wall. Scheduled to ship in September 2005.

just about anything you can imagine! Scheduled to ship in August 2005. (CAUT: 4)
