I suppose errata discovered in the HeroQuest "Board Game Companion" app (now up to v.1.70) could be its own topic... or where would you suggest we post those?

Well, you know the App does not exactly follow the board game mechanics at all, so I think it should have its own thread, separated from this one, maybe titled "HeroQuest 2021 App: Bugs and Errata Compilation" but following a similar structure to aid its traceability.

Please, would you like to lead it? :D

Well, just a couple of minor errata/typos detected in Mage of the Mirror components:

- Mage of the Mirror, Elven Bow of Vindication Artifact card: This artifact is a weapon, so like other Artifact weapons, it should have indicated "Weapon -" at the begining of its card text.

- Mage of the Mirror questbook, page 6: Princess Millandriell name is writen by mistake at its tile description title as "Millandriel".

HispaZargon wrote:. . . About this topic, maybe we could have the official rule in the Rulebook, but I think we have not seen it!!! Here it is:

Page 17 of the 2021's Rulebook (Page 19 on the classic one from 1990), section "What Happens to a Hero in a Pit?":

    As a hero, your minimum attack or
    defend strength is always 1 combat
    die, even if the pit penalty would
    reduce your dice to 0.

So... well, this is not the Combat section of the rules, but do you think we could assume this paragraph may be extrapolated to the rest of the rules? If we consider it strictly, would not exist any errata of course about this topic.

The word "always" I think is pretty clear and also fits with ROTWL rule for unarmed heroes. As I said before, I don't like it, but... the 1 Attack die rule seems to be more official than I thought in a first stage.

I think you are on target that the pit rule is meant to be extrapolated to the rest of the rules. Yes, the Instruction Booklet could have organized the "always 1 combat die" rule with better placement, perhaps in the character card section. However, since the rule is already presented in the basic game under pit traps where it is needed, an errata isn't called for (for an incorrect or missing rule.) You made the right decision to not include in your errata post.

The following errata was found by Eudoxio, only in the Spanish Edition of Kellar's Keep expansion:

KELLAR'S KEEP expansion box content:

Questbook:

- Page 15, Note E: Text indicates by mistake that the chest is empty, however it contains a part of the Grin's Map, as it is also explained in the same text.

Another errata, only in the Spanish Edition of Return of the Witch Lord expansion:

RETURN OF THE WITCH LORD expansion box content:

Questbook:

- Page 7: Text indicates by mistake "Kessandra" when it should say "Kessandria".

This errata is present in the original version as well (from 1992). Quest 5 of the Mage of the Mirror (EQP) has a Wandering Monster of 3 Zombies. You're going to have to either substitute monsters or own Return of the Witch Lord to fulfill this...

(at least easier to compensate for than the several quests that call for too many open doors in those several quests of the Frozen Horror)

Right... in that case, as solution I think it should had said "3 Goblins".

Nevertheless, it is surprising to see that Mage of the Mirror only used one of its new monsters as Wandering Monster: The Werewolf. The rest of new ones are not WM in any quest, however several types of new monsters in Frozen Horror also appear as WM.

That's nonsense for me... Why I can't wear a chain mail AND bracer at the same time? They are just creating more confusion than what they already did! :cry:

Yes, you probably are right. However, I always understood the correct item for the game should had been called as "Leather Armour" instead of Bracers, but I guess Hasbro prefered to reuse the EU classic item.

other than the errors being noted for the map usability and note, has anyone been logging the icon errors? In my "correction" project I've been amending every instance of the "mirror image" alchemists bench, and weapons rack having white fill in's, one big one I've noticed is in return of the witch lord, the throne room is a disaster....

1 - original.jpg


This is blatantly terrible and its little bits like this that add up to utter negligence in QC for print components, not only does it have some-sort of haphazardly placed grid (this is carried across all 3 instances in the quest book) but the room tiles are not even square and fitting to the map...

For my corrected version (coming this week along with Kellar's Keep) I have cleaned it up considerably and resized the whole thing accordingly.
