Another good rule to use is a horde rule for zombies. They gain plus one attack die for each other zombie adjacent to the hero they are attacking to a maximum of plus 2. Makes the zombies pretty scary!

Saiya,

I love the idea of the horde rule. I am just coming up to speed on the rules and inventorying the contents of the games i got on eBay.

Is this idea of hordes and grouping part of the original rules? one of the expansions? or an original or custom rule?

This gives me the idea of making other encounters more scary/complex depending on the situation and grouping of opponents.

Many Thanks.

Personally I found that the quests in KK with fully geared heros were easy. Though granted, could only play the first few, then the group lost interest. It seemed like a boring questpack.

Hey - been away from forums for a while! It's a house rule, not in the original packs, but I don't think I'm the first to suggest it here, but it is one I particularly like - offsets the slow movement of the Zombies a little too. Even with geared heroes it can cause some interesting situations!

is it a good idea that people keep all gear for next expansion. Just seems by time you reach the end. You have really powerful characters. What would be good idea to do (ie.. some gear gets old and rusty or such)

KK is not easy at all.
But in KK everything depends on the heroes. If they stay on a selected main road they get through without problems. If they try to explore everything they can be in a hell of Orcs.

However, KK also has not a lot of specials. It might be a good idea to beef up that quest pack with some ideas.

At least I like to think that I intropuced a lot of necessary changes and emphasized the things that did make the quests more special in the first place.

nvm

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
