Kiwi-American getting back into HeroQuest!

Postby Just_Will » Monday July 4th, 2016 10:07am

Good morning all!

I grew up in New Zealand playing the EU/UK version of this game all the way up through Wizards of Morcar (where my lil' bros and my heroes met their final end). I'm now working on getting back into the game, building a good gaming group, and eventually taking on those bastardly wizards again. (Playing the US version this time, so that'll be interesting)

Nice to meet you all!
-Will

Welcome!

Yeah, playing HQ is like a video game where you can't rest until you killed the final boss.
I have a dwarf character that's pretty far into the game. Man I just don't want him to die!

Good luck on your quest!

Thanks Goblin King!

I remember you from the Super Dungeon Explore forums.

Yeah it's definitely hard losing a character. Not just the equipment and relics, but the emotional investment if you're the type to get attached to your character (I know I am).

We'll see how it goes this time. I've started an elf character who is still in The Gathering Storm quests.

hah! I did wonder if I knew you from SDE! You use the same avatar, right?

It's also about the achievement. Taking a hero from the humble beginnings of the Trial to slaying the greatest lords of evil.
Sure, you as a player could brute force a corpse run through the quests, but without that original hero it's not quiiiiiite the same ;)

Yup, same avatar (Prince Medion from Shining Force). Username Holy Cross on there. It's been awhile since I posted there though.

I agree wholeheartedly with the achievement part too. I am considering making a netherworld dungeon for slain heroes to escape and thereby revive themselves in my campaign and nudging it to the Morcar player. That way there's an opportunity to bring your character back without just giving it away.

Not until AtOH and WoM though. Maybe beating Kellars Keep and Return of the Witchlord could earn characters the title of Eternal Champion and grants them a legendary status that affords an opportunity to revive themselves if slain.

Holy Cross! There we go :)

An idea could be that when completing X (5?) quests you earn a revive.
You can't earn more than one revive at a time. Once you die you need to survive another 5 quests to earn a new revive.

That's not a bad idea either. Maybe award them the first revive upon the starting of AtOH, then if it's used the Hero must beat 3-5 quests to regain it.

Have you beaten WoM as the heroes yet?
