Terrinoth: The Art of the World of Descent

Terrinoth: The Art of the World of Descent

By Matt Keefe

Stunning fantasy art and illustration from the fan-favorite world of Terrinoth, setting for the famed Descent series of tabletop games.

Since 2005, the famed Descent series of tabletop games have brought players together to take on the role of heroes battling the forces of evil. Now, the series and the realm of Terrinoth in which it is set, take center stage in this lavish full-color artbook. The Land of Steel is captured in an age of approaching darkness but renewed hope through iconic pieces from the Descent series of games, presented in their full glory, for all fans of the game and lovers of fantasy art. Alongside these fan-favorite illustrations, board art depicting the game’s iconic dungeon maps is presented, as well as behind-the-scenes sketches from the development of the series’ latest instalment, Descent: Legends of the Dark Act II – The Betrayer’s War.



Terrinoth: an ancient realm of forgotten greatness and faded legacies, of magic and monsters, heroes, and tyrants. Its cities were ruined and their secrets lost as terrifying dragons, undead armies, and demon-possessed hordes ravaged the land. Over centuries, the realm slipped into gloom… Now, the world is reawakening – the Baronies of Daqan rebuild their domains, wizards master lapsed arts, and champions test their mettle. Banding together to explore the dangerous caves, ancient ruins, dark dungeons, and cursed forests of Terrinoth, they unearth priceless treasures and terrible foes. Yet time is running out, for in the shadows a malevolent force has grown, preparing to spread evil across the world. Now, when the land needs them most, is the moment for its heroes to rise.

Praise for the World of Descent

“At its best, [Descent] feels like board gaming’s answer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – a big, flashy crowdpleaser that knows exactly how big, flashy and crowdpleasing it is.”

Dicebreaker, on Descent: Legends of the Dark

“It’s a world of fire-breathing dragons, noble heroes and scheming wizards that will feel instantly familiar to anyone who’s dabbled in D&D or sunk a few months into World of Warcraft.”
