Orc Quest

Postby Spectre » Friday July 27th, 2018 10:03pm

Okay, before I begin, I want to point out this thread is not about the CCG Orc Quest, or its dungeon-crawler miniature spinoff. That said...

Before I found out about that (which I discovered through trying to find ideas to refine the thought), I thought it would be kinda neat to make an alternative set of rules with a whole new cast of characters, Da Greenskinz. Some of the quest concepts I thought up for them were around such things as looting Imperial towns, taking on patrols of elves, helping your goblin allies take Dwarven Holds, fighting against rival orc tribes (cause ya gots ta show 'em 'oo's really da boss), and even occasionally going on a traditional dungeon crawl for more loot (cause you can use gold to buy bigga choppas).

All good things. Except... I seem to be a little stumped when it comes to figuring out who a fourth party member would be. So far, the easiest things are:

*Black Orc Fighta
*Goblin Sassin
*Mad Shaman

I mean, those were easy. I kinda want to keep ideas within the realm of HeroQuest/Warhammer Fantasy, or not too far from probabilities therein.

Some ideas I had were like a Goblin Squig Handler, Orc Arrer Boy (but shouldn't shootas be available to any orc?), or even possibly something not a greenskin (but then the question would be who, and why would they join them?). I'm not actually looking to make things exactly like the 'Barbarian, Dwarf, Elf, and Wizard' lineup either, and the rules for partying would also involve occasional skirmishes between players for not finding things to fight soon enough.

Thoughts?

So, you need something like the Dwarf.

*Squig Trappa (a Goblin or Orc who professionally delves in tunnels and dungeons to find and catch the buggers)
*Reg'lar Boy (just an Orc that's slightly more intelligent than others)

You could rename the Sassin to Sneaky Git (a term from Warhammer) and make him a Hobgoblin if want to.
The Shaman could be an Orc or a Nightgoblin.

Savage Orc/Goblin Fanatic/Hobgoblin/Fimir/Ogre/Troll.

I'd make your goblin a fanatic instead of an assassin. If you wanted to merge two you could have a savage orc shaman.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who thought about this. With all the rooms and all the posts in them, I hadn't found this thread you linked. Thank you, I will happily read over them.

Yeah, it's an old one. I only happened to come across it and remembered your topic. Still, your idea holds its own ground.
