Just saying hello

Postby happycynic » Friday September 23rd, 2016 2:05pm

Been reading the site for quite a while and finally decided I would ACTUALLY sign in for real. I adore this site.

Background: Bought the game new at Toys R Us in Texas and have been dragging it around with me ever since. I run a few table top rpg games, mostly DnD now that everyone's obsessed with 5e but I have a soft spot for dungeon crawlers, OSR and traps. I love traps. And one day I WILL run Barrowmaze. Dreams.

Basically I just wanted to throw it out there that y'all do some amazing stuff on here and my game has expanded quite a bit since I found this site. Even now I find new folks to introduce the game too and it's always surprising how much new players take to it, even amongst all the newer games. At any rate. Thanks for the stuff y'all do because it's amazing.

Welcome to the Inn! Great first post.

It's pretty cool that you have hung on to your copy of the game for so long, and still get a chance to introduce new players to HQ every so often. I have been of the opinion for years that, simple crawlers with good RPG-lite theming, are great gateway games. The ability to introduce new players to the idea of "Playing a Role" in a game, as opposed to simply moving pawns around (even though that's all minis really are), seems to wake people's creativity up. Games that can do this without being overburdened by fiddly rules facilitates that in a big way. HQ is not perfect, but as simple RPG-lite rulesets go its a winner.

Anyway, and again, welcome to the fray!

Welcome to the Inn!

I think HQ will forever capture the hearts of new adventurers.
It just has that perfect mix of charm, adventure, danger and simplicity.

Glad you registered--we're always happy to welcome a new member. About traps, have you read this topic? Finally, Barrowmaze :?: Do you mean Return of the Witch Lord?
