[Preview] [Quest Pack] [5 Quests] The Labyrinths of Muroidea

Postby EvilWizardCharacter » Sunday August 23rd, 2015 2:04am

Hey Everyone,

After finishing all 66 quests in the last 18 months with a dedicated group of experienced gamers, I have decided to step up my HQ tinkering and publish an original expansion pack centered around a fifth Hero we long ago added to our group: the Skaven.

I plan to update this thread regularly with info and playthroughs, but I've also started a blog to facilitate all the media I'll be posting here and elsewhere. The address is http://evilwizardcharacter.wordpress.com

As the subject suggests, the expansion is entitled, "The Labyrinths of Muroidea," and focuses on Zargon's takeover of the Skaven homeland, Muroidea.

If you haven't already, please feel free to check the blog and/or follow me on Twitter, where I will regularly post photos from our Thursday game-nights. My new, HQ-only Twitter handle is @Evil_Wizard_89

Here is the link to the first introductory post: https://evilwizardcharacter.wordpress.com/2015/08/23/the-labyrinths-of-muroidea-2/

Great read, that blog.
Regarding your miniature source queries: the Beastmen are from Battle Masters (or BattleMasters, German: Claymore Saga), the Dwarf Tinkers are Chaos Dwarfs from Warhammer 3rd/4th edition.
I like what you did for that quest pack, building up an entire microcosm of supposedly weighted monsters and traps that replace the game system's completely - which I like.
When I'll write my quest packs, none of which will be longer than 6 quests, I'll sprinkle one or two monster types from an old one into each new one to tie it all together.
Continue the awesomeness.

Thanks for the miniature info, knightkrawler. I've already updated the post.

The new monsters have been a lot of fun, but I expect by the time we finish this run in Muroidea, we'll all be ready for some good old fashioned Fimir once again.

To be honest, I'm already thinking about throwing some Mummies into the third quest as it is!

Yeah, why not? As I said, re-using familiar foes ties it all together.
