Either there is no new hero and the party has to continue with a man down, or Mentor magically transports a new starting hero to join the party. There are probably lots of other ways to do it, but that's the two I use.

I have no problem with HQ being very difficult for the Heroes at times. It's no fun for Morcar/Zargon if every quest is a cakewalk and the completion of a quest pack is a foregone conclusion. I do let the Heroes find an extra weapon or potion here and there if they are REALLY struggling and a total party kill is on the cards.

I noticed that the other day. I actually laughed out loud when I saw that. :lol:

The way my brother and I play, he doesn't. This isn't a problem as I am the EW and he has all the Heroes. I see it as one big quest, so there is no shopping, hiring, or recovery of BP's or spells.

Wow, this really gimps the Heroes, if you ask me :shock: . Ten quests for KK and RotWL, and no regeneration of spells or hitpoints the entire way through?

The rules of those quest packs do state that hitpoints and spells are restored between quests, though.

They do, but we don't. With powerful Heroes that have trained up with extra skills, and loads of henchmen, plus I add in a Special Henchman who is a custom made Hero that comes with his equipment and skills already. For a big 10 parter there can be as many as 6 Heroes and 15 Henchman.

If you allow the players to buy items beetween quests, you can also do this beetween quest 5 and 6 of Witch Lord, because after quest 5 they go to buy items but later they are captured and their equipment is stolen (but hey will find it later, during quest 6).
If you put random merchants during the quest be prepared to face a hero that wish to slain the merchant and robber all his stuff at once!
Some quest packs (Kellar and Witch Lord also) are intended to be one long adventure, from the beginning to the end. Maybe only in Against the Ogre Horde it is specified that the players can not buy items through the quests, but I guess in the previous there should be the same rule.
This is from page 11 of the Ogre questbook:

Come on... that's easy, we all know merchants in dungeons have a spell of disappearance. Try rob one and it's BOOM! Smoky sleepy time. The Heroes get nothing!!!

I prefer to think of the 'magical transportation' more as stumbling across a trapped or lost Hero who's quite eager to join you.
