Dark Priests

Monster, Altar Of Despair

I - Rules

Some priests offer their prayers to alien creatures best left forgotten. This ill-advised worship twists their minds in odd ways. Overlords find these warped men useful due to the unnatural powers they can channel. The dark priests most favored by their strange gods have powerful protections, and defeating one of them is sure to bring down a terrible curse upon the victor.

II - Tactics

Dark Priests are the perfect monsters to replenish the threat tokens of the overlord. With the Dark Prayer ability, the normal ones in vanilla Descent can generate up to 4 threat tokens per successful attack and the Master Dark Priests up to 6 threat tokens. If the overlord uses them for hit and run attacks, he will probably have enough tokens to put a power card in play in a few turns. That said, they can easily be killed by the heroes.
