check this topic for remakes of these special artifact weapons and items. Some changes have been made to make them a bit more "special". I like them better than the original 1 extra die versions.

I'm still glad Malcadon did a proper translation of the Japanese artifacts. Bastianbux said he was tweaking his quests and cards some and that's great, but it's good to know how the original Japanese rules, cards, and quests were designed too. :)

Yes, I think exactly the same... It’s better to have the original texts. I will use the tools from the forum to make them all looking exactly as the original (American version) and ready to print. Then I’ll send them to drathe.

Then I'll try to make the cards in the EU format as well ;)
I hope you're gonna make the booklet in the standard vertical format (not the BQP/EQP horizontal booklet format) though.

Sjeng, I suggest you make two pdfs.
One with just the cards different from the other versions, and one with the complete decks.
Makes sense to me, at least.

what do you mean? One set different as in European style?
And the one with the complete decks?

I'm planning on doing all the japanese cards translated in English, EU format.
I might also make the alternative ones with the changed rules that were posted here, but only for the artefacts.

I mean a pdf with all cards and a pdf with only those cards that are different from the UK versions.
Most treaure cards are the same, e.g. so printing all of them when only a few extras are needed adding to those you already have would be a tad wasteful.

Re: Japanese HeroQuest: Card Translations

Postby knightkrawler » Sunday May 26th, 2013 5:37am

So, here's my take on the cards re-worded from Malcadon's translations to match published British style.
For completeness' reasons, an American version for the armoury sheet (among others) with re-wordings and different spelling might be needed.

EQUIPMENT: I chose to consistently keep the weapon names uncapitalized in-sentence. My original British cards alternate between capitalization and lower case.

ARTEFACTS: I decided to go with formulaic formulations for the artifact cards as there's some parallelism going on there. Anyhow, this might bechanged in favor of diversity like in the equpiment card texts.
