What order should the quest packs be played?

Postby zep » Friday March 6th, 2009 9:43pm

I've heard people give different playing orders for the quest packs, but I think the general consensus is:

Main System
Kellar's Keep
Return of the Witch Lord
Against the Ogre Horde
Wizards of Morcar/Zargon
BQP
EQP
Dark Company

The first five have clues to the order found in various info. Agin's Inn(RIP) had a nice layout of this. It can still possibly be found at this link via the wonderful wayback machine.

That's the way I plan on doing it, along with the other single Quests kind of thrown in at random, just to change the pace of things.

My layout is totally different! Just kidding :lol:

That's the route I also take for the official quest packs. I too throw in the other quests in between to break things up a bit, and I put a few of my homebrew stuff in between too.

There is one thing I've done differently however. The last time I played through nearly the entire set, I ran the solo quests in the Elf and Barbarian packs at the same time (two boards). That way I didn't need to schedule solo sessions for everyone. Then the players chose which pack they wanted to play though first, EQP, or BQP. They chose EQP then BQP.

drathe: In your opinion is BQP harder than EQP or vice versa?

Phoenix: You said your quest packs will be after the Dark Company, but what order will those be in? And do you have any intention of using Nicodemus' quest packs?

I find the Barbarian Pack has a higher difficulty. Sure the Elf Pack has some Ogres, but have you seen what the Yeti can do?
