Opened Doors

Postby drathe » Wednesday February 18th, 2009 6:56pm

Currently working on the French Return of the Witch Lord scans HeroQuestFrance sent me, and I noticed that in quest 8, the Forbidden City, there are several doors that are open from the beginning of the quest (same for all European releases). This wasn't done for the North American edition. I'm curious how that quest played out for anyone who has played the European version. Does it actually add a new/unique element that was fun for everyone? How does it work for rooms that are closed off from the main board (an open door between two rooms, but the first room from the corridor has a closed door) since the rules state that the doors are open from the beginning and all furniture etc (excluding traps) are placed in those rooms at the beginning of the game? Shouldn't "line of sight" rules apply and overrule this (the doors are open once seen, but nothing is placed in the room until it comes into a Hero's "line of sight")?

I have a group that will be coming to this quest by summer and if it adds something fun, I may play my game with those doors open. I just need some clarification from those who have already done so. Thanks.

I don't know the answer but I still think the line of sight rule should still apply. By the way, the group you are talking about, is it us?

I totally forgot about this. I was going to try it with the doors open this time just to see for myself how it plays. Alas... I forgot! :oops:

Yes, Xela_elf, you are in the group I was mentioning in this topic. Now... hurry up and play that final Witch Lord quest! :D

I do want to finish the last quest. Last time I was having a terrible luck with my dice rolling, for everything! Weak attacks, terrible defense and even the moving was slow. And don't forget trying to get a 6 to wake up! It took like 6 tries with 4 dice each time!

By the way, this quest pack is my favourite so far. Almost every quest had something new to add to the suspense and exciment of the quest.

I am really excited to see what the next pack has to offer. I am looking forward to the scouts and other mercenaries. :D

drathe, I was very impressed with the way you made me use my Genie spell to open the door in the last quest. There was nothing I could do but use it to open the door. Unless I wanted to leave the middle of the board unopened and not find what the contents were (I hate leaving closed doors, I could not do that). Anyway, I really enjoyed your home brewed quest, it was very intense, very enjoyable. So the point for this post was that once again I had to use a Genie to open a door. Twice YTD!

Thanks. I really enjoyed making the Mind's Eye. Almost as much as seeing the faces of the Wizards at the end when they fight the last boss. Priceless!

I bet it was priceless :cry: I really thought I was done with when I saw the last boss. I had no usefull spells to use, no rapier that gave me extra attack and not even my full body points! I don't know how the wizard wiggled out of this one. I guess it was just keeping on fighting to the end (and a large amount of healing potions)
