It's a storytelling problem, not a game mechanic problem.

Agreed, it's all about the reveal. Discovery beats anticipation any day.

Did this pack ever get finished?
I've logged in on a couple of devices and can't see any links at all.

I love the concept of using Wizards of Morcar (which had a lot of potential in my opinion) as a starting point but adding the 3 solo quests and a few group quests. It Would make an incredible pack.

Admiral said that the solo quests were finished a while back. Where are they?

No, not finished, though it is still on my to do list. The three Wizard solo quests are done, but as I have zero computer literacy I have no idea how to get them on here looking all jazzy. I'd be happy to scan them and e-mail them to someone to produce them for me. The same would go for all the cards, which I am pretty sure are also all done.

Quests 4-7 will basically be carbon copies of the original WoM quests 1-4. Maybe a few minor changes to substitute my monsters and treasures for the some in the original.

Quests 8-10 are not even started yet.

See pics of my, very rough, example draft work. That is meant to be Balur on the cover.

This spell can be cast on any one Hero, including yourself. On that Heroes next turn he may reroll any attack or movement die rolls once. On Zargon’s next turn he may reroll any defence die once. The Hero must accept any rerolled die.

Did you intend to power up or power down this spell with the altered defend roll? "The Hero must accept any rerolled die" leads me to believe you intend a power up. "...reroll any defence die once'' reads to me as reroll any 1 combat die in defense once--a power down. For a power up, I believe it should read ...reroll any combat dice in defense once.

2) The intention is for the player to be able to re-roll one complete set of defence dice again, once. e.g I must try to defend 2 skulls rolled against me. I roll my, lets say 3 defence dice, and roll 1 white shield. I anticipate more and bigger attacks coming and so I don't do a re-roll. Another monster attacks me and rolls 3 skulls. I roll my 3 dice on defence again and get no white shields. I activate my future sight and re-roll my 3 dice again and get 1 white shield. Not a great re-roll, but I must accept it. I am attacked by a third monster and it won't matter how many skulls I need to defend against, I have used my ability and can not re-roll any more defence dice.
If you can re-write the spell to reflect this it would be most appreciated.
. . .

Better late than never?

Attacking Orcs with Orc's Bane, drinking Heroic Brew, or benefiting from Time Stop all provide an extra attack. Since you intend to limit total defense rolls affected to one only, I assume you'd want to do the same to multiple attack rolls. I feel Wandering Monsters which must be defended on a Hero's turn should also be considered, even from another inaccessible Hero's search. To account for these points, I'd modify the WoZ Detection spell this way:

    Future Sight
    This spell can be cast on any one Hero, including yourself. That Hero may then reroll one each of attack, defence, and movement die rolls once until the end of your next turn.

You could always add "The Hero must accept any rerolled dice" back in for extra clarity. I felt that it is already implicitly understood to be part of a reroll.

Yes, multiple attacks and defences won't affect it. You can only choose to re-roll all dice from one attack, one defence and one movement roll. Your wording covers this and is shorter than mine thanks.

Alright. Since I'm new and can't PM.

Hey Admiral! Have you finished this pack? Or are you still struggling with making it pretty to be uploaded? Either way I would love to take a look at it and see if I could do the layout for you. (I'm both computer savy and have a background in graphic design).

Let me know.

Thanks!

That is very kind thanks. I am just looking again at my HQ after a long break from it. If I ever get this finished I'll run it past you, unless you want to have a go at what I have so far?
