It appears that hard copies of the quest are getting handed out at GenCon - with no corrections to the typos!

The the first thing I noticed when the new quest was posted online was Mentor’s bad grammar in the first sentence. It would make sense if Prison Break is a national holiday for the minions of Zargon. Happy Prison Break everyone!

Mentor would then be the HeroQuest equivalent of the Grinch trying to steal Christmas: “Prison Break is in progress and must be stopped!”

BEWARE, SPOILERS AHEAD:

Well, about how classic EU lore has been impacted by this online quest, I would say maybe it could be still fully compatible, but only if we assume the following two points:

- The prison shown in the online quest Knight Fall must be inside (or be part) of the ruins of Kalos. This city was in a the past inhabited by free (probably) men of the Empire/Realm, so could make sense that after the fall of the Witch Lord the city was inhabited again by free men, and they inprisoned there Skulmar and other minions of Zargon who survived to the Witch Lord defeat.

- The Witch Lord books should be taken by Skulmar sometime after this online quest, maybe those books are still in any secret place of the old Witch Lord stronghold in Kalos, but he is the only one who knows where they are... or maybe Sir Ragnar knows it (Zargon could have told him where the books are before going to rescue Skulmar).

I know RotDM does not say that Sir Ragnar is executed but, it either says the opposite, so if we accept the sentences in bold I think this online quest and Rise of the Dread Moon lore are fully compatible with the classic EU lore of HeroQuest.

I can’t believe the prices people are paying for the GenCon printouts!

This must be the case. RotWL tells us that Skulmar escaped Kalos and this quest tells us how he did that.

Sadly I belive you guys are trying to make some sense of it while designers didnt care too much about lore or inconsistencies.

Note C struck me as quite original. It is common for doors to suddenly open and the rooms behind to be laid out, but I've never come across the corridor situation before as far as I'm aware. I assume we take the same approach and lay out the contents of that corridor, bar any traps or secret doors?

Edited by HispaZargon: Post moved here from extinted thread "KnightFall (ROTDM online quest) in other languages".

Thanks to carthoz on HeroQuestFans Discord for the correction, I didn't know this existed... it's tricky to find. But we've heard that none of the free online "pulse" Quests were in any languages but English (though oddly you can get the text in other languages via the App... though the audio voice work is only English)...

KnightFall seems to be the exception!

What's up with that?

HeroQuest Online Quest #3: Knight Fall

Yes it is quite tricky finding it but, great news anyway seeing that Hasbro has translated this official quest also to other languages than English. Hopefully previous Rogar's Hall, New Beginnings and Forsaken Tunnels of Xor-Xel will be also translated, but unfortunatelly still not (or I couldn't find them yet |_P ).

There are at least fan translations for the German versions of these online quests.
