Not enough Pit of Darkness Tiles

Postby drathe » Wednesday February 18th, 2009 5:51pm

The last quest, Flight to the Surface has 5 Pit of Darkness traps in it. I know it would be rare (and very unlucky for the Heroes) that all are needed as most would end up disarmed, yet I find it strange that only 4 are included with the expansion. Usually they provide the maximum possible amount, just in case.

What's more unusual, is that Pits of Darkness appear in Wizards of Morcar (5 in Crypt of the Necromancer). That expansion doesn't come with any Pit of Darkness tiles and Against the Ogre Horde wasn't released in near as many countries as Wizards of Morcar.

In fact it are just classic pits.
They used the same icons on the map.
I also found this strange the first time I've opened the rule/quest book, I just believed it was a new design.
(I didn't know AGAINST THE OGRE HORDE was released in the UK)

The quest pack also doesn't give you enough monsters. Sure, you get all the Ogres, and odds are you won't ever come across more then 4 Ogre Warriors on the board at the same time. But some rooms have 6 zombies or 7 goblins in them, whereas the original game system only has 2 zombies and 6 goblins... you would need the figurines from Keller's Keep and Return of the Witch Lord... Of course I don't know why anyone would have Against the Ogre Horde but not the 2 sequels. But just the same, you wouldn't have all the figurines without the other 2 quest packs.

but are the 6 zombies and the 7 goblins grouped in a single room? Because you can meet 3 goblins in a room, kill them and go on and meet other 6 in another room , so you can reuse the defeated goblins again.
Anyway the official rule is that when you run out of miniatures of the same kind you can replace the missing ones with others of the same color.

I just rechecked, there's actually 4 zombies and 2 skeletons in the 3x5 room of the North East quadrant, you can only enter through a secret door. Just the same, requires 2 extra zombies from RotWL.

In quest 5, the last room just before the exit has 7 goblins and a Pit of Darkness in it.
