Some more new bad guys

Postby Super Saiyan Musashi » Saturday November 20th, 2021 3:27pm

Having already added 3 new heroes, 8 new spell schools, and lots more arms & equipment, I got to thinking: there should be more dangerous enemies to use them all against! Several of them use Dread Spell versions of the new spells I made.

Poison Attack: any target damaged by a monster with poison attack rolls a d6; a 1 or 2 results in a poisoned status. Starting on their next turn, a poisoned character rolls a combat die. Skull: Suffer 1 point of damage, White Shield: Poison Cured, Black Shield: No Damage but still poisoned.

Stun Attack: any target damaged by a monster with stun attack rolls a d6; a 1 or 2 results in a chronic paralysis status. Starting on their next turn, a paralyzed character rolls a combat die. Skull: lose turn, White Shield: Paralysis Cured, Black Shield: Keep turn but still paralyzed.

Knockback: If attacker rolls any skulls, target is pushed back 1 square unless they have a character behind them or roll less than or equal to half their current BP on a d6.

Curse: any target damaged by a monster with curse attack rolls a d6; a 1 or 2 results in a cursed status. While Cursed, Attack and Defense are halved (round up what's kept). Curse is removed when the character recovers any Body or Mind Points or consumes Holy Water. A single Holy Water can be used for up to 4 Curse Removals, but a non-full vial of Holy Water cannot be used to kill any undead monster.

Psi-Blast: Once per turn, as a Free Action, monster can make a psychic attack consisting of 1 Combat Die. Target's defense dice are half their Mind Points rounded up. If this attack succeeds, target's Attack and Defense are halved for 1 round. If psi-blast succeeds on a target twice on back on back rounds, target also suffers a 1 point of Mind damage.

Sneak Move: Monster can move past Heroes at the cost of 2 squares per occupied space passed by. Cannot stop in a square occupied by a hero.

Tackle: If monster rolls any skulls on its attack, defending character rolls d6s for half of current BP. Any 5s or 6s resist the tackle, otherwise character is pinned down and Defense is reduced by half. Tackled character must spend an action to get back up even if the tackler is removed/killed, and if the tackler is still pinning them down, they must also roll a tackle resist to get up.

Acid Attack, if monsters rolls any skulls on its attack, they carry out an extra attack with 1 die, and for this extra attack, defender has 1 die as well.

Lightning/Ice/Fire/Magic Vulnerable: Takes 1 extra point of damage from damage-inflicting spells matching the element in Question, or in the case of Flan and Magic Vulnerable, all damage dealing spells inflict 1 additional BP. Attacks from weapons imbued with those elements get 1 extra die.

For each Drow: Shuffle the Dread Spells listed on the card and deal out 3; they can use those spells.
For each Witch: Shuffle the Dread Spells listed on the card and deal out 4; they can use those spells

The extremely thick borders are there because MakePlayingCards.com heavily crops the images provided for cards on all 4 sides, so I add the borders to adjust.

Minis
Acromantula: Epic Miniatures Rock Spider, scaled to fit on 1 inch base

Behemoth: Epic Miniatures Manticore, scaled to fit on 1 inch base

Bulbasaur: Ask this guy https://www.etsy.com/shop/PokeMiniMart or search for the Pikachu vs Bulbasaur toy packs

Drow: lots of choices, but I used this one https://www.etsy.com/listing/991447882/ ... _purchases

Efreet: https://www.heroforge.com/load_config%3D25169953/ Note that this model has a weak fragile spot with the smoke connecting to the lamp, making it prone to breaking in transit. Consider remodeling it first, or be prepared to glue it back on along with an extra piece of plastic bracing the back.

Flan: I used my Snott (from Earthworm Jim) figure. Pokemon Muks and Grimers can also work if they're the right size. Could also use Dragon Quest Slimes (https://www.etsy.com/listing/1085570279 ... y-required)

Golem: https://www.miniaturemarket.com/wzk7335 ... lgQAvD_BwE

Helghast: https://www.etsy.com/listing/826006672/ ... ngeons-and

Mimic: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1085558649 ... y-required

Orc Sniper: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1039366760 ... orc-archer

Pikachu: Either the Pikachu vs Bulbasaur toy packs or search eBay for Pikachu Keychains.

Raichu: Raichu keychains on eBay

Tonberry: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1035247656 ... -unpainted

Troll: Epic Miniatures Norse Troll or Mountain Troll, scaled to fit on 1 inch base

Vampire: Buy this 3D Model and provide to a 3D Printing Service https://3dexport.com/3dmodel-krul-teppe ... 157359.htm

Witch: https://www.etsy.com/listing/884249984/ ... ncer-dd-3d

Wolf: https://www.etsy.com/listing/918737976/ ... panion-for

Zolom: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1100327854 ... res-for-dd

Addendum: I'm thinking I might reduce Acromantula's Mind Points to 1. Remember to choose 3 spells for the Drow at Random from the list.

Nice work! Someone has been working with scans of the new stuff! ;)
That golem looks terrifying!
That efreet... that's not an efreet, that's Jafar.
The orc sniper is sooo familiar, but I can't place 'em.
Pikachu is not allowed in my HeroQuest games, ever.
That vampire is way to cute to kill.

Wherefore are these other heroes and spell schools you speak of? I love checking out new HQ ideas!

Yes nice work. Are these meant for Poker Size (the closest size MPC has to the remake card size, which are every so slightly larger than Poker cards). Shadzar will be happy to know he has a card now... |_P

Yes I did! My own scans actually.

Mission accomplished!

I needed an evil genie so I chose Jafar. I found Genie Jafar on Heroforge too; I intend to use that model for the board mini.

I can't remember offhand where I found the image. Maybe Warhammer art?

Do what you have to. You just not like Pokemon, or what?

Happens. But that won't stop her.

Thanks, and yes I used MPC's Poker sized cards template.

Great! I too have used their service and the borders thing is essential to making the cards look right. My first foray into modding for the Remake was simply print out extra card backs of Treasure, to turn the Equipment Potions into proper treasure search material (easily accomplished with sleeves, I used Ultra-Pro with the matte on the back and clear on the front).

Ah thanks! I'm thinking I might use them as a type of chest/furniture trap, and sometimes offer something nice for defeating them.
