Do you two fancy using two heroes each? If one of you takes the archer and the other picks a fourth hero then Jason can jump in when (if) he graces us with his presence and you can share the fourth hero. So if there's just you two you get two each and if there's a third player you can use the fourth character as a comunal hero.

So then you can name your main hero and we can get started. We'll let the other players name the other two heroes if and when they come, until then they can be all mysterious. RoadWarrior, you can change your main character choice depending on the fourth hero if you want. Don't worry about the icons, I can cover any combination.

One slight change to the combat dice that I roll on my turn, if it's a black shield I roll again. That way there can be more than one monster come up but it won't happen often, and there can be a monster and something else. Also you have to be directly adjacent to a trap to disarm it, you can't do it from the other end of a corridor, that's silly.

I'm happy to play 2 heroes if needed. I need to check the archer and high elf skills but I think we still need some kind of a healer in the group. Do you have any suggestions.

Not yet, the original four are chosen from the sixteen I mentioned earlier, one from each group. Those are the ones I created years ago, along with seven of the battle wizards and an ogre as mercenaries. It makes creating a group of four a bit more of a tactical challange. You can use those other characters as replacements if a hero dies.

You need an AQH character, Fighter, Wood Elf, Gnome or Sorcerer. If a fourth player wants to join they can either keep using the same character or pick another from the same group but start from scratch (six quests till champion etc). If you want a healer you need the sorcerer, or RoadWarrior could take the wizard as his main character instead of the dwarf.

ImageDwarf
You can use your attacking action to disarm a trap by standing on a directly adjacent square.

High Elf
You are a level zero Magician.

You are able to use a one handed melee weapon in each hand if at least one is any type of sword and can use them to attack twice if you don't move during the same turn.

You have an optional dispel attempt once per round against an enemy spell cast in the same room or corridor, on a skull it's unaffected, a white shield dispels it and a black shield dispels it and the spell is discarded.

When you are targeted with Transfix or Chill Touch roll a combat dice, on a skull you are affected as normal, on a white shield you are unaffected and on a black shield you are unaffected and the target looses that ability for the rest of the Adventure.

Archer
You are able to fire any type of bow twice in succession and move at full rate during that turn if you are wearing no armour or Light Armour, half rate if you are wearing Mid-Weight Armour and if you don't move during the same turn if you are wearing Heavy Armour.

Sorcerer
You are a level four Magician and have four spell groups consisting of the Chaos Sorcerer spell group (the target defends on skulls and no effect on 0MP monsters) and three chosen spell groups but a maximum of two element spell groups.

Your natural Magical Aura gives you a basic defence of two combat dice.

You are limited on the equipment you can use and are only able to use items that the Wizard is able to use.

The 'Deserted' Lair
Greetings brave adventures. As you know I am a powerful wizard working in service for the of the empire. I started out like you, as one of a group of fresh faced young adventure seekers working for our powerful wizard emisary of the emperor and my personal mentor, er, Mentor. I hope you'll have the honour of meeting him soon. I have guided many new adventurers over recent years and a few of them are very much alive and well. The Empire is still suffering from repeated attacks from an ever increasing number greenskins. I'm to join with my comrades to help protect the city of Altorf from an army that marches from the wordls edge mountains. A lair has been discovered in the mountains that seems to be of great strategic importance to the greenskins. It should be almost deserted as the army marches north and many orcs were seen coming from the lair. We suspect that the greenskin hordes are being controlled by some other influence, as they seem to be far more organised than we have come to expect from thier kind. Your first quest together will be to enter the lair to see if you can discover anything about who's behind these attacks. When your quest is complete meet me back here in the village. Are we all clear? Excellent, go away.Image
As you several day journey takes you closer to the mountains in the distance you begin to form a strong bond with your new partners almost imediately and you hope that fate will allow you to enjoy many adventures with your three newest comrades.
ImageGive the dwarf and high elf names and whoever's going to be using the sorcerer choose his spells and off we go. You start from just off of the board.

Edit:
Awesome! Now how do I do it without the attachments showing up at the bottom?
