Kurgan has hit the nail on the head.

The rules do state that you can't heal above the starting number, but no starting number is given for Sir Ragnar, but it states that he is wounded so his starting number must be more than his 'current' value.

I personally would go for 7 starting BP, seems reasonable for a Human 'Warrior' that isn't the Barbarian, but that is a hole in the official rules you have to fill yourselves!
Super HeroQuest Rule:
:skull: = white skull, one "hit"
:blackshield: = black skull, one "hit"
:whiteshield: = shield, cancels out one "hit"

Editions: 1989 Original - First Edition [FE] and Second Edition [SE], 1990 Remake [US], 1991 Remake [Japan], 2021 Remake / 1990 Remake [US] Second Edition?

HeroQuest Gold new edition based on Original 1989 HeroQuest, holes patched, dents hammered out, buffed to a shiny finish with ~50 common issues fixed for a smoother experience.

Yeah, you're unlikely to have anything that can heal Mind Points when you rescue him, but you more than likely will have something that can heal... so Zargon's call!

However, if you do, it's written "Hero". That's not Mercenary or ally. So by the word, no.

Now everybody I know who was tinkering with the rules either updated the spell itself to say "figure" or "model"; or they clarified in their personal rulebook that "Hero" means anybody who is on the Hero's side.


Pardon me for getting technical, but the EU healing spell cards (in English) don't say 'Hero'. They say 'player'.

It amounts to the same thing, though. Compare to spells like Sleep, which can be cast on any 'player or monster'.

The rulebook uses 'character' for heroes, but the writers probably used 'player' on the cards because it takes up less space.

I reckon allowing players to heal Ragnar would be fine, though. We never thought of doing it as kids!


As for Sir Ragnar's maximum Body (and Mind) values, you could make them similar to Pierre Chancier, the NPC from the Eyes of Chaos quest in White Dwarf:

His Body value isn't too impressive, but then he is only an NPC sidekick and not a HEROIC CHARACTER. :)
