Read the special rules and I like them.
I take it when you say "you can't interrupt the turns of individual monsters",
you consider the hero's defense roll part of the monster's turn (which it is), as in what you said about the Potion of Retribution, right?

You should clarify the Champion entries for the Elf and the Wizard.
"Gets..." - does this mean, for the Elf, that he gets his usual three spells PLUS four random Elf spells OR do these four spells replace the three he had before?
In the latter case, the wording is very ambiguous as it is analogous to the Wizard's "Gets..."
In the Wizard's case it is a little bit clearer, but still ambiguous, that you intend to ADD these spells to the three sets he has before.

If these spells are added, you need to reword, if they replace the regular spells, you also need to reword,
because in the Legend entries, the listing with "Gets..." does replace the old state.

I do like the advancement rules. Contrary to general taste, to count the black shield as a different symbol makes mechanic sense as it is easy to handle,
especially if there is gradual change of "meaning" (like from Champion to Legend).
The heroes get potentially very powerful, which makes it possible to write very difficult quests for them,
but the dice symbol solution still retains a high luck factor.

Exactly.

They're additional, I don't like replacing stuff with advancement. It means the elf ends up with 14 spells and the wizard gets 18 and can combine them. I'll be using some tough monsters later to compensate.

Yea I will in the next update. I also need to add that the starting men-at-arms should be replaced by a healing potion each if you don't have the minis.

That's the idea. Barbarian legend with the quartz blade counts black shields as five skulls. :)

I've updated the rules to close a few holes and added a long sword. I've also written the ending fluff.

:elf: I'm sorry but we couldn't find Infernus or the axe of defiance or the sword or deliverance or the executioner or the opal blade.
:wizard: *sniff*spear*cough*
:elf: ...or that spear you were after. We looked... EVERYWHERE!" :|
:wizard: :bites-lip:
:dwarf: :bites-lip:
:barbarian: Bu...
:dwarf: *stamp*
:barbarian: Owe!

King: That's not what Mentor told us.

:wizard: Ah you can't take what he says too seriously your majesty, senile you know, has been for a while now. Don't tell anyone though, we're trying to keep it on the down low.
:barbarian: That really hurt. What you do that for?
:elf: Okay, it was nice to see you majesty, we'll be off now.
:dwarf: Bye then.

King: Wait! Don't you want your reward?

:elf: Ah, yes, silly us.

King: This is my personal wizard, Nilrem. He has a truth spell!

:elf: :shock:
:wizard: :shock:
:dwarf: :shock:

For the most part I like it.
My only issue is that you have Wight's with listed Mind Points above a 0...in classic fantasy and RPG's a Wight is a mindless undead that feeds on flesh and life force. Just a more powerful zombie really.

But that is such a minor thing when we look at the totality of your work here.

Good job.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Thanks. I'm using the WH type wights, they're intelligent and powerful skeletons with special swords. I didn't know there was another uber-zombie type for a long time after playing WH so that's how I always think of them. Maybe I'll rename them.


Edit:
Reavers! :)

I upgraded the elven bow to attack with three dice, elf bows should be awesome and the dwarf has better armour so it's only fair.

Reavers is a great name.
I have seen it here and there in fantasy and there has never been much use of the name and no consensus of what it means.

Dictionary.com defines it as thus:

n.
Old English reafere "plundering forager," agent noun from reafian (see reave (v.)). Cf. Old Frisian ravere, Middle Dutch rover, Dutch roover, Old High German roubari, German Räuber.


Plundering Forager is the translation of the origin word.
Works rather well and it doesn't throw old school Dungeons and Dragons players like myself off.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

I use Reaver for my Mummy replacements, heavily armored and armed Skeletons (stats of a Mummy).

I did look at that when you first posted it, might have been in the back of my mind. Also because it sounds like reaper so it really suits them, reaver blade sounds nice a well.

I'll hopefully post the fourth quest tomorrow.
