A tile for Heroquest Novels quest pack

Postby Pancho » Tuesday April 30th, 2019 10:49am

Fellow Inn-mates, I am in need of a very specific tile for an exciting project I am working on at the moment; a solo quest pack based heavily on the official Heroquest Novels by Dave Morris.
There will be 12 quests altogether, and most of the work has already been done. However, 3 of the quests require a tile that doesn't exist yet and my computer skills are sadly lacking.

The tile needs to be 7x8 squares, with the left-hand tile edge (the 7 square side) showing a coastline. The remainder of the tile should be deep dark water. The tile will serve to double up as both an underground lake (think of the lagoon Gandalf and the Balrog fall into at the start of the Two Towers film), as well as the coastline of the Sea of Claws. I could have different two tiles but I want to cut down on the amount of work needed, and the printing required for people playing the quests. The whole tile needs to be pretty dark, as befitting an underground lake and/or a coastline at night-time. The Dave Morris adventures are quite spooky at times. There must be a small rowing boat tethered to the left-hand side of the tile, I.e. the shoreline edge, and bobbing about in the water in the 2nd or 3rd line of squares. There should also be a vague hint of a tentacled monster below the surface of the water, somewhere towards the right-hand edge of the tile.
In two of the quests the Hero will reach the coast and then row out into the water. In another quest after going underground below a haunted mansion they reach the shore of a cavernous lake and must row out.

I know this is quite a lot to ask for but I do think it'll be worth it given some of the great source material that hasn't really been tapped into yet. There are some free tiles on the main webpage by Ron Shirz and others that I will use if push comes to shove, but these aren't ideal.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!

So to re-cap on requirements
- 7 x 8 tile (the 7 will be the left and right edges)
- Dark/night-time scene
- Left-hand edge is a shore/coastline (either pebbles, sand or rocks would be appropriate).
- Remainder of the tile is open water (some waves are ok but not too choppy as tile will also be used for underground lake).
- Small rowing boat attached to the left-hand shore.
- Vague hint of a tentacle sea monster on the right side of the tile.


Thanks

I was thinking to write one for the Screaming Spectre novel, that's the only one I read.
I bought the Fellowship of Fours recently and still have to start reading it. Good news you already did the most of the work.
Is your work based on the whole 3 stories (outside of the HeroQuest world) with different characters from the usual 4 heroes?
As for the tile, I will send you a PM...

It’s based on all 3 books, and not just the central stories but also the 3 play your own adventure sections and the 2 Heroquest solo Quests (Growl of Thunder and Running the Guantlet).

When I read the stories I thought only the Fellowship of Four was suitable for conversion to Heroquest, and seeing as someone already did a very good job of doing that (check it out if you haven’t already), I wouldn’t have bothered. However, on reading these books again I felt that all sections of all three had elements that were suitable, but only if they were played as solo quests and the storyline was tweaked a little and the player didn’t mind some overland adventuring.

My idea is to link all of it together; the elf, dwarf, Barbarian & Elf all have their own solo quests, then they encounter each other and start pairing up, before taking on the hardest challenges as a party of four.
They are basically starting Heroes, with a few extra pieces of equipment given to them from the start. It’s up to the player decide to to name them the same as in the books, or have entirely new personas.

It’s still based in the Heroquest world, but most of it takes place across the Sea of Claws in Norsca, and Morris’locations are used where appropriate. I need to include a map with the intro.
