I was reading the quest notes and she has the reanimation spell, but it doesn't have any skeletons zombies or mummies nearby, was that an oversight or am I misreading something?

Most of us have come to the conclusion that Mage of the Mirror (and Frozen Horror) were released without play testing. Take a good look at the last paragraph of Quest 1 in Mage of the Mirror. Now try to find the Elven Chain Mail card. Look at the artifact cards. Now try to find the Elven Bracers in the Quest Book. Plus, multiple wandering monsters? 2 Chaos Warriors!? :shock: Talk about instantly killing party members and preventing them from searching for any treasure at all.

Has anyone here ever revised these quests? I'd love to see a playtested, revised edition on the forum :)

I just figured the elven chain mail wasn't a artifact but just a special version of chainmail for the quest pack, like how sacred water doesn't have it's own card but is a item in witch lord.

Good call on the elven bracers, that's actually kinda funny! I guess you can give them as a reward for completing the questpack, or they were supposed to be given instead of the chainmail, since the barbarian doesn't get a chainmail equilvement. (I know there's borin's armor, but if both the barb and elf got them all 3 would be able to get armor without having to take the movement penalty).

There's a holy water vial in the treasure deck. I just noted one of those on my character sheet when I found it. So basically there is sacred water :)

True, that's the uk edition though, in the US one there isn't one.

But I think if I ever play through the elf pack I'll defantly switch out that elven plate for the elven bracers, seems like what was intended.

I saw one of the other bosses has the same problem.

Perhaps the spell is ment to ressurect the monsters in the room as undead?

I think I'll give both bosses that use it summon undead, don't know if that will make the final boss to hard, but the game is kinda easy and it at least allows the spell to be usefull.

That was my guess. The Necromancer does the same.

Here's another guess: The two bone piles marked in Sinestra's inner sanctum are defeated Skeletons. They could be brought back by the Reanimation spell in this case. The difference justified in Reanimation is that it could do much more in another Quest, tailored as the creator saw fit.

They must've made some changes from the US version to the UK edition (as it was never officially released in Europe; in the North American version the Elf is rewarded with Elven bracers at the end of the first quest, no mention is made of Elven chainmail.
I would imagine that Elven Chainmail has the same effect as regular Chainmail.

I agree on the Wandering Monsters... 2 Chaos Warriors are a little much...

I've never heard any mention of them possibly being released in EU. Same goes for AtOH and WoM in the NA.
