Haha cool Rusty! Nice you feel inspired! At the moment, there is no playing unfortunately because of the lockdown. I gonna run two groups, one gamegroup to play the original HeroQuest with some additional outsideboards and extra quests added for flavor. I wanna play with the new board I am building once its done and play through all the missions with that one. With the other group we'll hopefully continue our Dnd game, inspired by the HQ missions just for a framework of story. This one is more work, cause it needs more preparation for each session and I gonna use lots of terrain. :)

@Anderas: Thank you! Yeah the snake was fun, I still wanna get her some nicer eyes. I dont know about the stats yet, havent thought that far yet :lol:

I tried out the new 2 by 2 hirstarts tiles I made and put them together with the DF catacombs. I really like how they work together. Hirstarts really rocks.

The coolest prop when building a scenery for me is the Island moss (lichen). Everything comes to life when you add this stuff to a build. You can get it at modellshops but you can find it cheaper at decoration/flowershops. Its sealed so it holds the color. You can store it easily in a plasticbag and reuse it every time. Great stuff!

Nice use of the resin catacombs! I have the heavens dungeon tiles and a few catacombs, but not as much as you. Looks amazing! My next question is rescue Ragnar with a twist. I have a red herring prisoner that can distract them from saving ragnar if they don't listen costly to my description of Ragnar. Ragnar dies on a turn based timer. If they fall they have to bring his corpse to town where it will be stolen it if there tombs and have good resurrected by cultists. If they stop the cultist it gives backstory to why ragnar betrays the empire in the later quest packs... He is resurrected and not turned into a zombie, but seems distant and off. He will run quests with heroes here and there, each time getting more violent or darker towards enemies and questionable NPCs. Thus, his betrayal is shocking but not out of left field. After seeing this, I need to get some more catacombs for the tomb he is stolen from!

Thanks Rusty, I like your Ragnar storyline! You should write out your Dnd/HeroQuest hybrid adventures somewhere here man. Sounds inspiring!

@Anderas :lol: Thats a good thing!! :D

Red herring Ragnar! Love that little story idea. That's about 4 or 5 quests right?

The coins are made by fantasycoin. Highly recommended. They are made of metal, pretty heavy and have this nice "cling" sound and feel amazing in the hand. They used to even make silver and gold bars, which looked amazing. Hope they ll restock these one day. (in Europe the coins are sold by larpbasar).

The dice are metaldice made by dieharddice. Coolest dice I ve ever held in hand. Super heavy. They literally "feel" like weapons. :D
