ken...since it's a sewer and you say they fell in the sheeyitte, I think you should trip on down to your local joke shop and get some fake doggie doo-doo. Then when your grandson (or son, hopefully he doesn't read this until it's too late) falls in it again, you can put the fake dog poop on the board and place the figure on it!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!

I think I'll get one for Beernut and tell him to hide it in his pocket until he makes a game where the same thing can happen!!!

if you need a skaven quest, download my quest generator program ! You can easily play without Game master... Just say to the program which type of monster you want to put in the dungeon, how many, you can also choose the furniture you want to put, the traps, the doors, secret doors...etc. The program generate the dungeon in realtime... So you play when the program is running.

It's very easy to use, even if it's just in french for now... You can use the advanced Hq modular board game (if you have it) or just the classic HQ boardgame to play... Try it !!!

That's rediculous. It's widely accepted that the tale refers to a historical icident when a great number of children/young people vanished - e. g. to join the children's crusade or simply dieing of the plague.
Wikipedia:
The theory with the broadest support[6] is that the children willingly abandoned their parents and Hamelin in order to become the founders of their own villages during the colonization of Eastern Europe. Several European villages and cities founded around this time have been suggested as the result of their efforts as settlers. This claim is supported by corresponding placenames in both the region around Hamelin and the eastern colonies where names such as Querhameln ("mill village Hamelin") exist. Again the Piper is seen as their leader.


In those times there were unscrupulous Lords that wanted to create new industry. They accomplished this by luring children of poor families for work in new towns that they started for this purpose. The children were so far removed from their families that they had no way to return. This was important, as the children were exploited by the Lords rather than being given the promised life. Place-names and the names of the new inhabitants of the region support this.

Besides the flute, another characteristic of the Pied Piper is his clothing. Pied refers to a colorful patchwork. Perhaps this remarkable clothing could be another artifact that relates to his origins. Could the Piper be a skaven in disguise? Who better to wear a patchwork of clothing? He could be an outcast out for revenge against his former brethren, or a spy sent to undermine the Empire.

If a Nimh skaven, he could originally be out to thwart an evil skaven plot. After the corrupt Empire official balks on the payment, the Nimh morality of the Piper causes him to lead the children away from such corrupt humans into an underground promised-land.

Enter the beastmen (allies of the evil skaven) to require a Hero rescue for the children. The lame child of the original story can be rescued and report the happenings. Next rescue the Piper, then learn the whereabouts of the doomed children.

Other things I'd like to see: A captured mountain lion or wolf befriends the Barbarian or Elf. What fun for the rescued pet to chew up the rats! A re-occurring skaven villain should be included to link the first story arc with the beastmen. Also, the Heroes could be given a chance to make right and pay the piper. Such altruism should be rewarded with an artifact.

Re: SKAVEN QUEST PACK

Daedalus, I like the idea of the Heroes having some animals to help them ! For now, I have finished the 4 first quests. I have entered them in the game master program (more easy for testing them). I have decided to use a very few new tiles (perhaps just one square tiles for grid or water). I use the classic board too. I have also decided to add lizard men and beastmen and also night goblins. Sorry for guys who haven't got extra figures, but you can easily replace night goblins by simple goblins, lizardmen by fimirs & beastmen by... Ogre perhaps?

The campaign isn't linear. You have the choice of the way you want to use (hard or more subtile). For example, in the first quest, there is too different ways to finish the quest : you can flee so you go after to the quest 2, or you can hardly fight and if you win you go to quest 3. Then you will find more challenge in quest 3 and more objects and gold too.

These 4 first quests just presents the why of the quest. The heroes must go under Middenheim, city of the white wolf (it cames from warhammer roleplaying game), to the sewer to find the skaven lair that is well hidden. They will find the lair in quest 4. So they will understand that skaven are too many and too strong to be defeated by just 4 "little" heroes. So Mentor will tell them the story of the magical flute, that they will search in quest 5.

I have made these 4 new quest in a different way than the official quests books and the fan quest book, because I don't want to make a linear quest book that is too simple : like you find 50 gold pieces, here's a trap, when you open this door two other doors opens...etc. I want something new and very complete. I have also make a new rule for poison dammages, made by some special skaven creatures.

I will try to post the 4 first quests here tomorrow. Then I will need that someone correct the texts, because I'm french and my english is... hem... Very schoolish ! You know... :oops:

THANKS TO ALL for all your great ideas ! I will try to not disappointed you !

Hurry Along There :!: In the meantime, I roughed one out over my Cornflakes this morning. When Mr Groat the Emperors Tax Collector was down in the sewers, he lost his Talisman of Pore. This Talisman allows Tax Gathers to remember all those who have not paid the Emperor their Taxes. This of course, has to be found, and the Heroes are told "Don't come back without it" :2cents:
