When we do play , six works okay in either AHQ or D&D 3.5 edition. One is the Game Master while the other 5 are players. I used to run five at conventions with not too many problems . ShitColoredGrin ShitColoredGrin ShitColoredGrin ShitColoredGlasses

Yeah, I'm starting to think that 7-9 player HQ games are not very reasonable.

So, I got all my stuff in the mail the other day and played my first game in about 17 years with my wife and she used a single elf against 15 thieving goblins in the starter pack by Carlos (thanks to Phoenix for hosting): http://www.freewebs.com/phoenixgd/fanquest1.html At one point she was about to die and I turned the tide by telling her just before she defended against a goblin who rolled 2 skulls, "Due to a near death experience adrenaline suddenly pumps through your veins allowing for a greater opportunity of defense for this turn only" and then I handed her two green dice which have 3 hero shields over the white dice having 2. Luckily enough, she defended both hits and stayed alive. When she proceeded to search the next room, she got treasure that healed her body points. It was an awesome impromptu I couldn't have really pulled off unless I had the green dice. I look forward to more shifting of the rules here and there to help either the heroes in tough times or the monsters in easy times.

bah! Nothing wrong with 7+ players! Just adjust the # of monsters and indeed let the players do as they wish! If some of them die; then that's what happens!  It makes them more wary the next time and they learn a lesson about backup the hard way! Then nobody goes off on their own!

An adjustment of the rules worked also for dying heros: at zero (or negative) HP they collapse to the ground, and have only the # of turns equal to their level to be given a health potion by a teammember.
Kind of like being incapacitated in L4D.

We have still lost a few teammembers anyway - mostly the ones that run off on their own!

I've recently enjoyed a post from EvilWizardCharacter on Ye Olde Inn.  During his campaign I saw him using the cool dice from this post.  I don't suppose these are still available anywhere, or if anyone knows how to acquire a set?

Many thanks! HeroQuest Dice Skull

Hello. Some interesting comments here on the dice system.

If anyone is interested, I'm about to design some custom D6 for HQ. They will be 19mm x 19mm x 19mm and plastic, with an inset for stickers to be inserted.

I aim to create:

x2 - light random wandering monster dice (yellow with specific creature in dark green)
x2 - heavy random wandering monster dice (dark green with specific creature in yellow).
x2 - random treasure dice (orange with black silhouette of item found)
x2 random trap dice (purple with trap marked in white)
x2 random weapon found (blue with weapon in tan)
x6 - standard black shield, white shield, skull skull dice (black on white & beefed up a little in appearance)
x2- stronger enemy dice with two black shields, two white shields, two skulls (white print on blood red)
x2- powerful evil dice with three black shields, one white shield, one poison attack, one critical blow (black print on gold)
(+ 120 dice stickers + a few spares in case magic happens)

( I need 2 of most because of the complexity of tile choices I have)

I have the ability to offer dice in the following colours: purple, yellow, red, green, orange, blue, black, white

But can also custom design the stickers that go onto them Wink

I'll post some dice images when I'm closer to making them available from my site.

Here we go.

Was worried they'd be too light, but they're a hefty 6.62g each giving a nice solid roll.

Hi, all, maybe everybody found out...maybe not. The colored dice are still available but the website has changed.

Instead of shopping guru (the old store) you can buy colored dice now here:

The guy, Jack, is still the same

Just as an FYI... I *DID* finally break down and buy the dice. I bought the 6 of each of the following colors: Black, Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, and Purple--but I did not get the Grey or Olive dice.

I wound up dropping over $50 on those damn dice... but they're so worth it.

Shit!  New dice.  Order placed.  I've been waiting for some more granular increments between some of the other colors for a long time!
