By Sadgit:

The Community Rules Reference Guide (CRRG) is a comprehensive resource for all Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition rules. In its current form it features:

  • Rules from the base game and all released expansion boxes (except the print-on-demand expansions)
  • Rules for Road to Legend including The Delve in separate text boxes
  • Official Errata and FAQ published by FFG (oFAQ, version 1.6) and approximately 400 unoffical FAQs (uFAQs) to specific player questions integrated into the text.
  • Visual examples for “Movement”, “Line of Sight” and “Special Situations in Combat”
  • Tables with overviews on the content of Descent expansions
  • An index with hyperlinks and page numbers

When I started this project (in an over-enthusiastic and fairly naive way), I never imagined the time and effort it would cost. I also never imagined what I would learn on the way. And I definitely never imagined the help and the encouragement I would receive from friendly, dedicated and generally fantastic people who I would get to know. I cannot thank you guys and gals enough for this. For me personally, this project is as much about the journey and the things that I experienced on the way, as it is about the final product. And, in my opinion, this is exactly as it should be.

From now on I plan to release updated versions of the CRRG in January, April, July, and October.

Current versions

CRRG v. 1.9 in English (interactive) (print) (print@home)

 History and ChangeLog

CRRG v. 1.9.1 in German (interactive) (print) (print@home)

 History and ChangeLog

  • Interactive: The “interactive” pdf is mainly for use on electronic devices. Format: DIN 4 (297 x 210 mm).
  • Print: The “print” pdf is for professional printing. It is 6 mm larger (bleed) to allow for trimming after printing to get rid of unprinted, white edges. It does not include any hyperlinks. Format: 303 x 216 mm
  • Print@home: The “print@home” pdf does not include background images to save ink when printing at home. Format: DIN 4 (297 x 210 mm).


Special thanks to Zaltyre, any2cards, and Atom4geVampire and other people at the FFG  and BGG boards who supported me a lot during the creation of this guide. The German translation was done by Frankenraecher, tose and BSJBi96x. Thanks for the time and effort you guys put into this!
