I found that intro really confusing when I first read it. It feels like a couple different stories put together and doesn't seem to flow very well. I'm not sure how the original was written, but I feel like this can really be shortened and streamlined down to one page and some details left out. But I know you like to keep as much of the source material as possible, which I respect. I'm not sure how well that works in this case, though.

The first part explains how the Amulet was shattered and the second part explains what the Amulet is.

I pretty much kept it original but substituted Khorne for Zargon. I did hack out a lot and still felt it was lengthy. Not sure what else could be removed without degrading the story from the original.

In Quest 3 there are a couple of Falling Block traps that will effectively end the quest if they are triggered?

There are alternative routes. It'll work anyway.

Now that this is finished I have to take a look. Thanks for that project!

Would you like a simulation for the monsters?

Oh yeah! Can't believe I didn't see that. I think the bridge over the chasm just drew me to looking at that route and assuming it couldn't be bypassed.

Sorry about that!

Monsters, yes please!

I have the monster stats/abilities figured. I will post them hopefully this evening. Little busy to finish making it look pretty.

The Spells for the Gray Seer can be found in my Quest Pack: Summons of the Wizards' Council

Wow they are fast! I'd consider open layouts with long corridors the most dangerous, seeing that :)
With all those extra-rules, the questimator can only be a rough approximation. But it always was.

Ok, here we go.
Quest 1: I would say, it's best played with a 3-dice-group. It could be done with a 2-dice-group but then it is difficult like the Trial.

Quest 2: The creative traps are the problem here. Monster-wise it could be done with a 1-die-group. It's the race against the time here that makes it difficult.

Quest 3: From pure monster point of view, this is a 2 dice group quest. However, then there are wandering plague bearers and censer throwers who take easily 3-5 BP each time the pair appears. Those are not questimable right now - Between these and the traps, I'd say this is a quest for a 3-Dice-Group owning a healing potion.

Quest 4 and 5 are somewhat together; as you can't reload BP and Spells between the quests.
You need 4-dice-equipment to survive those quests: The quest "normal" monsters need a 3-and a half-dice equipment, but then there are Gray Seers that I didn't calculate, which drive the difficulty a little bit higher.

That's done. Thanks j_dean80!
