..and the quest begins!

Postby Sotiris » Friday November 29th, 2013 5:49am

Yesterday i was expecting 3 friends to run a campaign according to these additions: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2057
This is a small set of heroes for players to choose when they make their characters OR they choose the figure and then create its stats.

These heroes are painted by the skillful hand of tasoe (+another new set that is almost finished and will be posted soon):

DSCN2659.JPG


But as i was setting up the game, my wife and our maid of honor decide to take part on this!! :o (they have never played before!)
3rd player delayed so they are 4 heroes now AND another 1 is coming soon (never played too)! "No problem" i said, and my friends started to explain the rules while i was replacing the figures (because now with 6 players i couldn't know which race/class would everyone prefer and my painted collection does not cover it anyway), so:
DSCN2660.JPG

1st player=Elina (my wife): Barbarossa the "seabeast slayer" (white-based dwarf) :shock: "don't confuse me with cards&skills!" she ordered "give me the max attack!". B:7 M:3, A:3 D:2, Items: broadsword, Skills: -
2nd=Mary (our maid of honor): Luminette (blue-based elf) B:5 M:5, A:1 D:2, Items: dagger+1 potion of healing, Skills: spellcasting+2 set spells (she chosen Water & Protection spells for the Trial)
3rd=Lukas (buddy): the "Chained" (black-based dwarf) B:7 M:3, A:2 D:2, Items: short sword+1 potion of healing, Skills: disarm traps
4th=Akis (buddy): Vanyar (wizard) B:3 M:7, A:1 D:2, Items:dagger, Skills: spellcasting+3 set spells (he chosen Fire/Air/Earth spells for the Trial)

I read them the UK text (it's the only exception on our US rulesystem) and i let heroes to do anything they like (to search Fellmarg's tomb, to kill Verag, or keep wandering and looting - in any case the exit is open anytime if they are wounded or exhausted).

So the white-dwarf rolled the dice..opened the door..continued and searched the corridor (the opened door tokens on corridors/rooms/furniture means that they have been searched). and she pulls a wandering monster! It appears always from the back of hero.
DSCN2666.JPG

..the orc remains unharmed and a 2nd orc appears in the room when the unlucky blue-elf searches the room..then wizard spells the magic words: Fire of Wrath!..
DSCN2669.JPG

..and the orc resists forcing the wizard to get out of the room.
The battle continues..and the 5th player Dimitris who plays the Brainless (a classic barbarian) appears in the entrance while eating chesnuts (the other players have their character sheets & cards in front of them as normal, he, the only thing he has is skins of chesnuts :lol: )
DSCN2674.JPG


I don't remember how the others involved in this situation with a wandering monster attacking the black-dwarf who was searching the furniture or white-dwarf's big trouble..but all together screamed to barbarian:"Come help us!!!"(to be continued)

:barbarian: "No! I'll go East as the text requests!" and took his own way..
DSCN2675.JPG


The battle/wandering continues and the wizard just walked with pass through rock to explore some squares. He revealed the central room and returned. The barbarian when heared about Verag he came immediately to join the party.
DSCN2676.JPG


That's me, while organising my chaos tactic! :twisted:
DSCN2678.JPG


So, after a regroup out of the room, heroes enter inside with rage to beat the beast! A nice combination here: courage on white-dwarf who has reduced :chaoswarrior: 's b.p. to 1 and Wall of Stone spell by the blue-elf to block :gargoyle: 's way!
DSCN2692.JPG

Now it's wizard's turn before mine..

He takes the risk and gets inside! Verag is growling so loud that you think the wall will collapse!!
DSCN2694.JPG


..he whispers some ancient words...and a servitor appears behind Verag!
DSCN2695.JPG

It's the Genie! :skull: :skull: :skull: :skull: :whiteshield:
:gargoyle: :blackshield: :skull: :skull: :skull: :skull: Noooooo!!!

The rest was easy, all minions slaughtered one by one and heroes loot the room deciding to stop here the Trial (not enough body points left).
Black-dwarf sold his short sword and bought a broadsword..
DSCN2701.JPG

..and then food/tavern/rest..
DSCN2702.JPG

..until a messanger deliver'em a scroll by Mentor..elf read it and said something to other heroes about Sir-Ragnar.. |_P

Yes it's an ashtray! I bought it from Berlin 5 years ago..now i'm a non smoker but this ashtray will never be removed from my table!
Of course take anything you want for the blog! No problem!
We played sir-ragnar after the break. The 6th player came and i balanced the quest by adding 1 wm (but not attacking immediately). This worked perfectly considering the fact that a hero draws treasure card even in a failed trap/s.door search..
More photos coming soon!

Why do the figures look so much better in your photos than they do in mine? I'll have to look this up. I could pass for a much better painter if I take the appropriate photos.

Aside from that, the environment looks great for HeroQuesting.
I have to reveal to all Inn members that Sotiris has never invited my to his home for a Quest!
Maybe it's because I'm a nudist, and I always get excited when I play HeroQuest as a hero.

Quest 2: The rescue of Sir Ragnar

The heroes party gets bigger with the addition of 6th player "Louthien". She picked the white-based elf with stats: B6 M4, A2 D2, Items: Spear+1 potion of healing, Skills: -
The spellcasters chosen the same sets and the quest begins..

..the white-dwarf gets first into the dark dungeon...the orcish smell is everywhere!
DSCN2703.JPG


Barbarian searched the torture rack but 2 wandering monsters hidden ambushing him with 1 successful attack. Then, barbarian's companions hustle to help him..
DSCN2705.JPG


After a while the party decides to go East but wizard's instict guided him to another direction..a sneaky :goblin: almost scared him and "Fire of wrath" was again his 1st spell to cast. The die scores :roll6: and my :goblin: survives from the flames!!
DSCN2712.JPG


In that room white-dwarf gets mad when he (she) sees the chest! He run to open it before any search and the poison needle hits him! His b.p reduced permanently from 5/7 to 4/6!
:barbarian: u ok?
:dwarf: yie i'm fine, go!
..and the barbarian left by rolling :roll6: :roll6:
DSCN2716.JPG


The rest of the party now goes to the southern rooms but again white-dwarf started to shout/swearing from the previous room. His sword was making noise too and that concerned the wizard who was the closest hero..
:wizard: oh-oooh! I think someone needs my healing hands..GUYS KEEP ON I'LL CATCH YOU LATER!

The white-dwarf after barbarian's departure searched the room and...2 orcs appeared!
DSCN2718.JPG

He fought brave killing 1 orc but he is with low b.p.!

Now, "rescue of sir-ragnar" renamed to "rescue of Barbarossa the white-dwarf"! Tempest takes place and the orc during the next round is dead..
DSCN2727.JPG


:wizard: let's rescue ragnar now ok?
:dwarf: fcourse! runn!!
DSCN2729.JPG


Meanwhile the black-dwarf as he was fighting in the room with the chest he stopped and started thinking.."maybe i should go open it instead of attacking! why not!golldd"
DSCN2730.JPG


..and my last monster in the board was so close to the miracle..to kill wizard who had 2 b.p. left! These are the dice rolls..
DSCN2731.JPG

Wizard survived with 1 b.p., sir-Ragnar rescued and we finally had a nice gaming!
3 of 6 heroes were playing hq for the 1st time..i think they liked it, they said: see you on next quest! |_P
