And my effort to draw up the artefacts found in this adventure. Some players have said that there's not enough quest treasure to be plundered from the Dark Company, but four artefacts is pretty good (even if three of them are single use, and you only get the fourth after completing the quest...)

Please ignore the WOM spell at the bottom, its for another thread and I didn't want to upload two separate PDF's.

is the temple still available? I mean the room where the heroes can recover spells?
Or was it bypassed by the "Magic Scroll of Spell" artifact?

The Temple (Shrine of Learning) is still available (see level one). I thought that it was a slight flaw in the quest design that the Shrine and the Magic Scroll, which have similar effects, are both quite close together. Would have been better to have a spell recovery mechanic much later in the adventure. We can get round this by making the Scroll an artefact that can be carried for later use.
To be fair, the quest notes from the original don’t explicitly say that the Scroll has to be used there and then in the place it was found.

Hey Anderas, the door into the centre room on map 3 is still missing. Would it be possible to add it in to your Heroscribe map? Thanks a lot.

Definitely agree about the scroll. That is how they are used in the US version. I don't remember scrolls being in the EU version?

Added by Sjeng, maybe :-)
He made an european looking scroll pendant of every spell.

Poncho, I will try to find the time. Currently I am a little bit overloaded so it's difficult. You can do it as well, I uploaded the xml to enable self editing after all.

Sorry to be a pain, but I don't even know where to start. Literally. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do something by clicking on the actual map, or open up a program that I don't have and then try to import it in?

There's no rush for this. I just wanted to flag it up that map 3 is missing a door, in case somebody stumbles on this thread in the future and wants to use it. If anybody else is able to jump in and edit it that would be great.

If he rolls a greater number, he is gripped by a magical vortex and loses one body point.


What does TALLY mean?
Unless it has a specific meaning seems like the Wizard will run no risk to roll a number that is higher than his Mind Points (he already has 6).
I checked and it is the same in the original version too...

In this context tally means score or total. So yes, the Wizard is immune. Only the Elf is at risk here, unless the Wizard has lost mind points during the quest somehow (could happen if using custom treasure card deck or Evil Wizard cards).

Like I said before, I haven’t changed any of the rules or text from the original. Just changed the layout to make it more playable.
