Thief + Assassin + Cleric, revisited !

Postby Azure » Monday September 7th, 2020 12:50pm

For those who are asking on what I am working - here it is. I revamped the Thief, and the Cleric to enable more flexibility and more replayability.
The Classes appear more skillful, and more proficient and they have multiple new elements to experiment with during quests !!
I will add more !! Each class has been verified and tested during gameplay to avoid being overpowered. Follow the specific rules and descriptions below. Have fun.

:redorb: Thief (or Shadow Rogue) :redorb:
:skull: Attack 2CD (Your unarmed attack is 1CD)
:whiteshield: Defense 2CD
:redheart: Body 6 Points
:blueorb: Mind 4 Points

Starting Weapon : Dagger
The Thief cannot wear any metal armor
The Thief cannot wield any shield or any sword above Short Sword

Passive Abilities & Other Special Perks
- Every time you search for treasure, draw 2 cards and keep the best one. This also allows you to skip the roaming monster card.
- You can perform a treasure search even in the presence of monsters.
- Every time you find Gold, add 2d6 and add the score to your Gold. For Gems, roll 5d6 and add the score to your Gold when you sell it in town.
- If you attack a monster from behind, you roll 1 extra CD (this gives you bonus 50% chance to deal damage, compared to removing 1 Defense from the enemy 16%)
- Sharp reflexes ; if the DM informs you that you stepped on a trap, roll 1 CD. Avoiding the skull equals avoiding damage. Move back 1 square for safety.
- The Thief is also skilled with a Bow and Arrows. You deal normal weapon damage with a Bow and Arrows.
- The Thief can also throw knives at a distance, the realistic maximum distance is 6 squares. Throwing any knife/dagger past 6 squares should not be possible.
- As a Thief, your dexterous fingers and precision allow you to use a tool kit 3 times before the tools break.
- Throwing knives should cost 25 Gold each // you cannot recover your throwing knives.
- As a Thief, your perception is advantageous : 2 times per Quest, you can enter a room and immediately see if there is a Secret Passage.
- Poison vials should be available in town at a certain cost : 100 for 3 doses, 250 for 8 doses. The poison allows you to coat a dagger - when you attack an enemy, this enemy will lose an extra Body Point on top of any damage you dealt. If you don't deal any damage, the poison will still be on the dagger on the next turn.
- Using poison on your dagger and attacking from behind are therefore cumulative - - the bonuses add up together.
- Yes, Arrows can also be coated in poison, same rules apply ; to apply the extra poison damage, you must deal damage to the enemy.

:redorb: Assassin :redorb:
:skull: Attack 2CD (Your unarmed attack is 1CD)
:whiteshield: Defense 2CD
:redheart: Body 6 Points
:blueorb: Mind 4 Points

Starting Weapon : Dagger
The Assassin cannot wear any metal armor
The Assassin cannot wield any shield or any sword above Short Sword
*He/She may however acquire better daggers during the quests. Dual wielding is possible.

Passive Abilities & Other Special Perks - - Has some similarities with Thief, but many differences.
- If you attack a monster from behind, you roll 1 extra CD (this gives you bonus 50% chance to deal damage, compared to removing 1 Defense from the enemy 16%)
- Sharp reflexes ; if the DM informs you that you stepped on a trap, roll 1 CD. Avoiding the skull equals avoiding damage. Move back 1 square for safety.
- The Assassin can also throw knives at a distance, the realistic maximum distance is 6 squares. Throwing any knife/dagger past 6 squares should not be possible.
- As an Assassin, you can automatically detect traps 2 times per Quest.
- Throwing knives should cost 25 Gold each // you cannot recover your throwing knives.
- Poison vials should be available in town at a certain cost : 100 for 3 doses, 250 for 8 doses. The poison allows you to coat a dagger - when you attack an enemy, this enemy will lose an extra Body Point on top of any damage you dealt. If you don't deal any damage, the poison will still be on the dagger on the next turn.
- Using poison on your dagger and attacking from behind are therefore cumulative - - the bonuses add up together.
- The Assassin has access to special spells/abilities of his own mastery : the Shadow Arts // They work the same as any other spell ; a one-off.
- Sleep toxin darts: Puts an enemy to sleep. Zargon must roll 5 or 6 to avoid it. Cost : 250 Gold for 3 darts.

Re: Additional Heroes and Heroic Skills

The issue I'm running into with my cleric is the addition to more healing in the game. Making some of the dungeons easier.

True, I totally agree on that. Indeed.
As a matter of fact, the tweaks and upgrades I'm doing also go hand-in-hand with more vicious and more merciless enemies.

Ever thought of adding new challenges such as :
an evil wizard who can throw Fireball ?
a Minotaur who can attack with 4 Dice, twice ?
Or an evil summoner who can summon 2 Chaos Warriors every 3 turns ?

I'm planning on doing a big campaign once I finish my add-ons.

@Josh, thank you very much, it is truly appreciated. I don't know yet how these characters balance in game, but I do know I put a ton of effort thinking about it and avoiding power-creep as much as I could. Stay tuned and check my ''Spice Up Your Dungeon'' Topics.

by the way - - I am preparing a full campaign of HeroQuest using these heroes, and in a modular style (no more of the same board for 15 quests)
It will be on TableTop Simulator. Contact me in private for more details.
