[POLL] chose monsters to create new quests

Postby lestodante » Sunday January 12th, 2020 11:16am

How do you chose the monsters when creating a new quest?
Personally I think that monsters should be divided depending by genre.
Greenskins are Goblins, Orcs and Fimirs.
Undeads are Skeletons, Zombies and Mummies.
Chaos Army are Chaos Warriors, Chaos Sorcerers and Gargoyles.
This is probably a very basic rule but I prefer to fullfill my maps by selecting monsters per typology. So I will not mix in the same room a couple of Orcs and a couple of Zombies.
At least I can dedicate some parts of the map to a different genre of monster but usually a quest is greenskins oriented or undead oriented. Then the Chaos figures can stand together with both races as they are some kind of magical figures in my opinion.
But I see that in Barbarian and Elf Quest pack they started to mix any kind of monster together in a single room, while in the previous expansions they were following the rule I told before.
What do you think is more correct?

I think it depends on the theme of the quest. A quest with an orc necromancer boss can have bot greenskins and undead together.

yes, this is some kind of exception. Because it's ok that a Sorcerer (human or orc) can conjure and control undeads.

I normally keep them separate, however there will always be one or two quest that you have to mix them.

I did a prison quest awhile back that had a bunch of undead after the main part of the quest was done.

No, I didn't have them in the same room. I had all green-skins and other monsters in the beginning of the quest. Then once the main goal was completed, all the "dead bodies" of the prisoners came to life.

I think it depends on the theme. I typically do not have undead in the same room with others unless
there is a character controlling all of them. I usually think of creatures in a hierarchy.

Chaos warriors typically are at the top, and would be in charge of any other creatures nearby.
Firmir are next in line, then orcs, and goblins at the bottom.

I don't think Greenskins and Undead should be allowed to coincidence unless there's a necromancer that can control the undead.
Chaos Warriors and the Gargoyle are a bit different, though. They're not greenskins nor undead, but I think they should be able to work along side the others. The Grey figurines are more boss-like and seem to be directing the enemy forces.
We don't particularly know where the Chaos Warriors come from or what's under those helmets, so it's not impossible, perhaps through some magic, that the undead don't recognize creatures from the realm of Chaos.

The Elf Quest Pack seems to a make a mess in regards to this, as undead are frequently featured in the same room with greenskins and Giant Wolves. But whenever playing the EQP I reserve the Rite of Zargon to alter such scenarios.
