Heroes

Postby Gold Bearer » Saturday October 11th, 2014 3:38pm

These are my main characters. They're based on the characters from heroquest, advanced heroquest, dungeon quest and dark world. The idea is to pick one character from each group to make up the party and once a character dies the replacement hero must be a different one, but there's various ways of doing it. The cards are place holders until I make up some proper hero cards. It's been a while since I worked on these characters but I think everything makes sense. I'll update this with more details, better character descriptions and a list of the artists of the pictures I used. Elvins defend with no dice as standard and can fire a bow twice without penalty (other characters can't move over half rate), humans defend one one dice as standard and can use both elven and dwarven equipment but not as well as elvens and dwarvens, and dwarvens defend with two dice as standard and can see in the dark. Enjoy.

A lot of options for the players to choose from. I'm looking forward to seeing a quest so we can get an idea of how these heroes balance against your expanded bestiary.

Who's your favourite?

I've got four characters for each of one of these as well. When a player dies there'll be added to their choice for a replacement, so their new character choices will be based on the character they chose to start with. With the battle magicians and another bunch that can be used as npcs I'm up to about 130 heroes. :)

So am I! I'll try getting heroscribe working again today. It pissed me off before so I've stayed away from it for a while. Maybe there's a way of manually adding the icons that I need.
