[Preview] [Solo Quest] - A Friend in Need

Postby Decipher » Friday February 12th, 2016 10:27pm

Been thinking about doing a solo quest pack for a while now. Sometimes getting 5 people together isn't possible but that HQ thirst has to be quenched. I figure if you can manage at least two people to play, might be pretty cool to have some single player specific quests. Still toying with the details but I am thinking something along the lines of the Barbarian, Dwarf or even the Elf, if he's brave and strong enough to go solo. I'd like to do a set of quests for the Wizard, but other than having a ton of goblins and a few orcs, the quests would be very low level defined. I was also going to include some new artifacts specific to all 4 heroes. Ignore the typos, this is just a sample.

Its something I have been thinking about also. Have one kid who wants to play all the time. The other two are very intermittent.

Even something I can run through on my own when the kids are self-entertained.
Check out my dabblings in writing.

The true cool thing would be a quest that you can ramp up for two players as well. If the friend of your kid comes.

These would be great. I am often looking for solo quests to introduce a new character into a group of Heroes, and give them a chance to get a little bit of treaure/gold etc.

In fact your quest is perfect! I am introducing a Bretonnian Knight and an elf into my wizard's party. They will be playing 'Journey to the Bottom of the Crypt' together, and I had a back story as to how they met at the Emperor's Palace, but this is a brilliant quest for them to meet, and a rescue mission is the sort of thing a Bretonnian Knight would do.

Why not play 2 characters at a time? Or 3 or 4 when stuck for numbers. Alertanivy send the character in with 3 hench men or men at arms.

I would not give Artemis a choice of spells. Against a single low mind point Hero, a Summon Orcs/Undead and Cloud of Chaos/Sleep combo could easily be a death warrant. Firestorm and Lightning Bolt don't, in my opinion, have the right feel for a single Hero battle. Tempest is a waste of time and Escape is irrelevent. Rust would be okay unless the Hero is just starting out. Command could well just see our Hero turning round and slaying the Elf. I would give him Ball of Flame and Fear.

I was really looking forward to some more of these excellent solo quests, but I've just noticed they are from Decipher. Please come back to post any more you do.

After a detailed look, I have one remark:
The illusion of free choice is missing. Basically, it's a row of rooms. You could enhance the illusion of free choice by adding a branch more, or by implementing a loop. ("If you had taken the right way, it would have been shorter"). A secret door is missing. It could lead to the additional branch.
To equalize, the main branch could be shorter.

Would you provide us with the .xml from Heroscribe?

It's handy having some lighter quests for one or two players who only want to play with one hero. I've been thinking of writing a pair of quests for two characters that can be played on the board at the same time if all players are there. That way some lighter quests can happen at the same time.
