Well it does so because of sites like this one. Thank you drathe. It's good to see you popping back in for a minute.

Been on and off of various sites for HQ, AHQ, and WHQ over the ages, but Ye Olde Inn is still the first and foremost resource for me. Rarely posts, but loved the custom quests, and when I converted HQ to Roll20, it was the best place for resources that I knew of. Almost everything already exists in some format here, preserving HQ and it's ilk for the ages - hopefully.

I remember very briefly finding Agin's Inn in 2002-2003 when I was in high school on one of the spare 5 minutes I had internet access during computer class.
Fast forward to 2007. I got a laptop as part of my college equipment, and one of the first things I did was search for Hero Quest stuff. I ended up hanging around Old Scratch's forum (rest in peace) for a while, then eventually migrated over here when the two communities reached approximately equal levels of activity.

I consider the three years during which I playtested Slev's "Hero Quest Revised" to be the height of my involvement in this community. Other hobbies have moved in to occupy my time in recent years, but I still do some Questing from time to time.
I confess I haven't posted much of anything over the past year, but I have been fastidiously lurking and watching the stuff people make.
Maybe 2021 will be Count Mohawk's great Hero Quest revival - we'll just have to wait and see!

I was looking for guides, tutorials and maps for the online game.

Technically it should be Internet search for HeroQuest for me since I discovered the site a decade ago even if I didn't start yapping here at the time. But I've returned because of the 2021 release rekindling interest in what I've been missing.
