I don't think he was meaning the size of all the boards together, but the size of the Dark Company fold-out booklet.

You are correct. I was just curious about the booklet. The boards, wow, that would be challenge, haha.
Sure it's pretty scary when the witch lord returns but what you should really be afraid of is "Resurrection of the Witch Lord". Resurrected baddies always come back more threatening than ever, usually kind of demonic with wings and horns and hell fire to announce their arrival. Think Gannondorf or Mother Brain from Super Metroid.

I'm currently working on a Dark Company board, with 4 boards combined and altered, so they aren't the same. The file is HUGE, but I'll see what I can do with the end result. I'm not even sure it'll fit on my table if I print it in the normal size, let alone a tad bigger...

In my version, I've decided to allow the player's to pick what the Ring of Brilliance does. The player's decide whether they want +1 to their Attack, Defend, Body or Mind and Mentor imbues the ring with that ability. The ring & the Hero essentially become one and the power becomes non-transferable. (So if a Hero dies, the new Hero doesn't automatically get the new power).

Made a card!

This card is coolness, thank you! Not to mention the combined map too.
My approach to this Quest Book, which is said to be massive and very long lasting, is to somehow give the heroes some hints about the area. For example you could make them find some map pieces or a bit rusty unclear map that shows a bit of the areas and directions. I think this way the heroes won't walk the same corridors 10 times and try to figure out which direction to go next.
Haven't tried anything about this yet, but Im planning to, right after the current Quest Book.

Brilliant means shiny.
Brilliance is an abstraction that figuratively describes intelligence, wit and such.
Brilliancy indicates a rank in shininess.

Its all about the suffixes.

Of course, etymologically, a ring is named such after the human anus. Take from that what you will. (The ring makes your butthole shiny).

From Dictionary.com:

    bril·liance
    noun
    1.
    great brightness; luster: the brilliance of a fine diamond.
    2.
    excellence or distinction; conspicuous talent, mental ability, etc.
    3.
    splendor, elegance, or magnificence: the brilliance of the court of Louis XIV.
    4.
    Optics. that luminance of a body consisting of its saturation and brightness.

Definition 1 works for describing the appearance, while definition 2 works for the benefits.
I don't give a rat's ring about the etymology! ;)
