Could Millandriell have been turned into the Warlock by some dark force?
Maybe later the plot will develop furher?


I was just considering using the Warlock figurine as Millabdreal for Mage of the Mirror, as I don't care for the whole "tile" token they've decided to go with.
MotM had a lot more fixing potential in terms artifacts, spells and gameplay. Instead of all the extra furniture and she-elf archers/warriors, getting rid of the tiles for Millabdreal, the Elven prospector and werewolves and replacing them with actual figurines would've been better.

I think all they did in terms of fixing was address the empty chest problem and adding in the Elven Bracers. Though I think they most certainly should have made a card for the Elven Chainmail.

However I'm open to altering the story, where some ritual was taking place to possess Millabdriel, but it was interrupted by the heroes. Because the heroes interrupt the ritual the possession could not be complete, so Millabdriel was left in control imbued with some of the demonic powers.

On the original HasbroPulse campaign, the original designer of the Warlock character, Shauna Nakasone confirmed that the Warlock is a Halfling. You can still see it towards the bottom of the page in the “Guest Designers” section at https://hasbropulse.com/products/heroquest-game-system

Great thread guys! One of my group has been using the Warlock and liking her but now that we are on Quest 8 of the OG quests, he realizes that she will be limited going forward. I will point him to this thread. Some good points for him to think about before he starts with a new character. Thanks again guys!

I started a campaign by shuffling all the hero cards together (3 Barbarians, 3 Elves, 3 Wizards, 2 Dwarves, 2 Rogues, 1 Bard, 1Druid, 1 Warlock) and drawing them randomly I started with the Female Barbarian, the Druid, MotM Elf, and the Warlock. As much as I don't like the half written story of the Bard and Warlock I need to admit that the Trial probably wouldn't have been successful without the Warlock.
Asides from her healing spells the Druid was the least useful.

Although the Elf was killed the Barbarian barely survived the onslaught in the middle room taking on a Chaos Warrior and Orc while the Gargoyle gave chase to the Warlock and Druid. It was the Warlock's range attack that killed Verag and multiple other monsters. I find her to be a workable character but there's not much she can do in close combat and can't gain armor past the Bracers.

Unfortunately the Warlock didn't make it out of the Trial, despite being such an influential hero. After defeating Verag the 3 remaining heroes ventured to Felmarg's tomb.
Due to a poor movement roll in an attempt to retreat the Guardian of Felmarg's tomb cornered her while Barbarian and Druid were blocked from helping by a Zombie that stood in the doorway.
The Druid and Barbarian went on to complete the quest and found a new (Female) Elf and (Female) Wizard to join their next quest.
