Hi all & another re-write
02/02/07 at 5:54am
 
Hi all. Frst post here. I'm blaming Phoenix for pointing me this way.

I'm working on a one-volume compilation of HQ & all the suplements (with some minor tweaks for consistancy). Are people intrested in seeing this when it's ready?

I'll also be hiving off the material I'm creating to fill this out, if people are interested in it. These include a Dwarf Quest Pack (Vs Skaven), Wizard Quest Pack (Vs Daemons), a compilation of various 1/2/3 part adventures, and a quest Pack seeing the Heroes facing off against the Doomguard and a group of Chaos Champions (ie evil Heroes).

So, who's interested in what?

Any additional HQ stuff is always cool.  Especially new quests and quest packs. Grin

I agree with Zep, the main thing I miss is seeing new quests or quest packs that people have invented. I much prefer to poach other peoples ideas than make up my own.  Grin

Blame is relative, besides, I knew you would fit right in.

All HQ freaks eventually find their way here.  Grin

Well, some early previews of things that seem to be ready enough.

The Armoury:
http://www.4shared.com/file/10191236/226a76c2/Armoury.html
It could do with some better art or better quality scans. The latter especialy when I come to make Equipment Cards.

The Alchemist's Shop:
http://www.4shared.com/file/10191207/7e401597/Alchemists_Shop_.html
It could also do with some art as I couldn't find any decent scans, and I also intend to make Potion Cards.

With the Potions, several have been renamed. I wanted any potion with a given name to have a set effect. Under the old systed, a Potion of Healing, depending on the type, would restore either 2, 4, 6 or D6 BPs.  I also folded in the potions from my own expansions.

OK, I have a question of you all.

As discussed eleswhere on these boards, there is a discrepancy in the Elf Quest Pack with the Elven Bracers/Elven Chainmail.

At this point, I'm thinking I will use a (modified) version of the Bracers (+1MP, +1BP, +1 on each movement die rolled). I say modified as the original is too similar in effect to the Amulet of the North.

So, do you think I should:
a. use the original bracers
b. use the modified bracers
c. use something else
d. quit holding up the new Quest Packs with re-writes of the old.

I say: d.
Bring on the new quest packs!  several other people have taken on rewriting the originals.  You can only have so much of the same thing.  This is not to discourage you from doing the rewrites, but more to encourage you on your new original material.   Grin

Well they're all plotted.

Dwarf & Wizard packs have 4 potions a piece.

All the cards are designed, the begining and end texts are done, the quest scrolls are done.

I could do with Icons for Trolls, Daemons, Skaven Warriors, White Seers and Rat Ogres though, so I can make the maps all pretty.

Well, my re-write of the rules is now here:
http://tinyurl.com/356jfo
Buried in it are prieviews of the mosters, spells, scrolls, treasures and artefacts from the new quest packs I'm working on.

As the credits are on page 228, I should mention that I ripped quite a bit off of Phoenix (thx dude!), and most of the icons are directly from HeroScribe.

It still needs a few bits added to it. If anyone can help with the following, please be in touch:
A decent scan of the Platemail equipment card image
Equipment Card style images for: Dagger, Leather Armour, Sling, Shortbow.
Scans of the various potion bottles.
Images for the new potion bottles.
Imags for the various Treasure and Artefact cards (old and new).

Good collection of info there.  Thanks for creating the summary!

p3 of 77: Whole bunch of "Bookmark undefined" error messages show up after the introductory quest, quest books and appendices.

p27 of 77 Longsword mentions the broadsword.

p28 of 77 sling weapon mentions the crossbow, as does the shortsword

p29 of 77 "shield" references in the Shield entry should have the "s" uppercase to match the other references to Shield above and below.

p33 of 77 Holy Water typo in name. It's spelled correctly below.

p.74 of 77  Elf's Mind/Body stats are actually the Barbarian's. The "One spell group" font is also smaller.

That's all I noticed my first pass though.  Keep 'em coming!

Thx.
I'll not release a fixed version for now, bit I will be correcting this for the next one, with the quest books.

The reason there are the errors in the index ar as the rest of the document was cut out to make this file. The daft PDF compiler updated the page numbers first. Grrrrr.

I'm afraid there are no news at all!
We've been stuck on the same tile for a year now; the good thing is the brand new icons are all ready, we just miss time (and some code too ^^); I hope we'll be able to release it as soon as we can...
You're the third asking me about those skaven icons, and I'm beginning to realize I'm gonna have to do something about it Undecided.
Cheers

*hands Derfel a Potion of Speed*

I think a lot of people will be happy if you can just add the missing Icons representing the wibbly stuff from White Dwarf, and release a 1.X version.

Although V2 would be sweeeet.

Hey Slev!

Just been reading a few things here and found a few errors:

-page 35 describes the Hurricane trap and how it is sprung and then springing a Hurricane trap is repeated on page 37 at the bottom.

-page 37 describes the Swinging blade trap and how it is sprung and then springing a Swinging blade trap is repeated at the top of 38.


that's all i've noticed thus far.
