Hi,

Been quiet around here lately.

Anyway, I've been playing around with a couple of quests and have a play testable version now that I thought I'd share.

Does anybody know what template was used to make the Quest Packs on the downloads section (the ones by Pheonix/drathe)? I really like the look of those packs and I think they allow for more text than QuestMaker.

Seems like a pretty solid mini-quest pack. Well done.
I like how you handled the different outcomes of Q1 by having different start locations in Q2.

I do think the rewards at the end are a bit too much. 500 each + daggers for what doesn't seem like an overly hard quest?

Yeah, you're probably right. I'm curious about the frequency of a group being successful in triggering the reward from the elves. Likewise, I'm curious about the difficulty, hopefully I can get it play tested later in the week. I was a bit conservative with numbers of some monsters since the elves defend with white dice, effectively giving them a defense of 8 combat dice.

I think it's safe to assume the heroes will simply cast the spells on sight against the first 3 elves they encounter.

    3 elves x 3 MP x 5 or 6 to restore...

    Chance to restore each elf is 136/216 or ~63%

    You have 3 chances, each at ~63% - that gives us a ~95% success rate!

The heroes have to be pretty damn unlucky to fail this objective :D

Edit: Math is fun!

Yes. I was actually thinking about a group starting at the west door grabbing the key, as opposed to just going up the stairs when they got to the center room. Perhaps though, I should only give 1 or 2 of those scrolls.

The scrolls seems like a fun idea - controlling an elf for half a quest.
The problem is mostly it's tied to a big reward.

Actually, maybe just remove the elf-reward. Isn't gaining a temporary henchman it's own reward?

I think that's reasonable. I'll leave the daggers but make it 4. Really don't know why I chose 5.

I did a bunch of test rolls on the spearmen. They're definitely more hardy than a chaos warrior, but that is mitigated somewhat by the BP being 2 (vs 3). I'd probably put this series of quests after the first 14.

High Elf Quest Pack

Postby clmckay » Thursday January 29th, 2015 8:42am

Here is a High Elf Quest Pack for those interested. I did not make any of the art in it myself. Artwork was all lifted from various places around the web.

The pack is meant to be played as an "interlude" or side-quest to a larger campaign. The encounters have been about two-thirds playtested and they vary in difficulty. So if you use them with a group of Heroes, adjust as needed to meet their needs. I plan on doing more in this vein, but it'll be a while.
