Quest 9: Shapeshifter

Postby kyrrahn » Monday November 20th, 2017 12:15am

So I'm starting a campaign (with myself as EW) with some friends and while reading the notes for Quest 9 I had an idea... Since it says shuffle "ALL the monster cards" for the shape-shifter and I have the cards from the various expansions as well as prints of the cards for the WoM from this website would it be out of line to use them all?
I know it might be difficult if they draw the card for the Frozen Horror itself or of the 10BP Ogre from MitM but since this is one of the few times that you really get to use the monster cards and it would really make the encounter memorable (as well as difficult) I'm thinking that by the letter of the law it's okay. Also if I were to use a complete monster deck and they drew one of the WoM for example, could I then give said wizard his spells?
I know it seems a little harsh but I'm thinking of doing it as the lads tend to "Seal Team 6" their way through most quests with crossbows and tactics and since my brother is also an experienced EW it would really catch him off-guard...
Any thoughts...?

I wouldn't add in extra monster cards.

The way the shapeshifter works is that they keep killing it until you draw the same shape twice in a row. If they killed it as an orc and you draw orc again.
That wouldn't work if you added a whole bunch of cards.
Also the expansion monsters are generally much harder than most of the standard monsters, making this encounter insane. They could in principle alternate between drawing the ogre and the Frozen Horror.

I think the Shapeshifter is enough of an elite monster already.

I'll just add...most of us are in agreement of not adding new stuff from Quest Packs until play that Quest Pack. If it came after the others than extra monsters are fair game.

"...ALL the monster cards..." in Kellar's Keep was written before any other expansion existed
and thus without any expansion monster cards in mind.
So, no, "by the letter of the law" it would not be OK.

But it is your decision. For example, if for some reason your heroes are way too powerful and mnaxed out on equipment,
it might be OK for you to add other monsters into the mix.
