[Quest Pack][4 Quests] Into the Sewers [new maps]
06/24/12 at 4:53am
 
Hello everyone!
I've compiled a series of quests based on quests made by Ken and Mortis the Lost (from the Lost and the Damned forum) and two maps from Dragon Magazine. Credits are in the booklet, as are all maps, cards and tiles needed for these quests.
These quests are about a town harassed by Skaven in their sewage system, and it is up to you to free a prominent member of the Emperor's court from their clutches!
Let me know what you think!

Into the Sewers (pdf) - maps and cards included! (hosted at Ye Olde Inn, you need an account)
Or use this link (2 parts):
part 1 rar
part 2 rar

...

Miniatures needed:
- some Skaven (clanrats from GW for example, or from AHQ)
- a Skaven Grey Seer / Warlock figure
- a Skaven Rat-Ogre
- optionally some tavern-folk (barkeeper, maid, visitors)
- a nobleman as the tax collector.
- some giant rats (giant rat tokens are included)

Can be played fairly early on. Players who have played at least 5 quests from the HQ main game should be able to succesfully finish these quests.

I'm currently making boards for the maps. I'll post pics when they're finished Smiley

I fucking love it - we can say that here...

I mean, this is really original, and I didn't even read the texts. The maps and tiles are just something else.
Great work, dude!

Thanks! Here's some pics of how I made the boards.

...
The materials needed: Cardboard, 70x50cm about 3mm thick / black paper 70x50cm / black duct-tape / a can of glue spray for paper / a tape measure / a pencil / a sharp hobby knife.

...
Glue the black paper on the back of the cardboard using the spray glue. Use caution: spray at 30cm distance, do not inhale, spray in a well ventilated area, and use some underground like plastic or more cardboard. Use the duct-tape on the edges.

...
Fold the ends of the tape around the edges by cutting in the tape like shown.

...
...

...
Do this around all the edges. If you tape the short edges first, you can fold the edges of the long sides over the short sides. I did it the other way around, but it's better to do the edges last.

...
When finished, mark the middle of the back of the board, using the tape measure and pencil. Cut almost through the board, just enough so it folds.

...
Stick some tape over the folded edge. Press it firmly into the groove.

...
Leave some tape on each side, and cut it in half as shown.

...
Fold the tape over the sides firmly.

...
Lay down the tiles, so it fits on the board. Take the middle 4 pieces first, and spray them with glue. Mark the center of the board halfway with a pencil.

...
Using a box for spraying is handy.

...
Carefully place one tile on the board at the marked center, along the folding line (you can fold the board halfway while placing the first tile).
Place the rest neatly along the first.

...
After the first 4 tiles, simply glue the outer tiles along the edges of the middle tiles. Let it dry a bit.

...
The end result! I used some transparant regular sticky tape on the middle folding edge, so the paper wouldn't fold/crumble when folding the board.

I'm going to try and see how adhesive transparent foil will look like on a smaller tile, the kind you use for protecting books, and perhaps stick that over the entire boards as well, for waterproofing.

Hope you like! Enjoy Wink

Awesome reworking of a cool set of Quests.  If I ever get to playing again, I wanna make those boards and Quests. A couple of suggestions:

Check out these AHQ Skaven images at this link to my fileshare site.  They have also been in use for a long time in the HQCard Creator, so I think it's okay to use them.  They would make the Sharpen Blades and Shield of Protection spell cards fit the theme better than Orcs.

It would be great if you could develop/collect some more floorplan tiles for the rest of that village.  Any chance that would ever happen?

This is awesome, I like especially the graphics.
Im gonna take this to my HQ further quests schedule.
I'll have to modify this to become a bit more difficult for the heroes, as they have played through almost all of the official quest books and are loaded with equipment... Smiley

I have to say that I'm really impressed with your board. If I had a group that was willing to play HQ with me on a regular basis I can tell you I would have used your method to do several. The new board is one reason that I'm hesitant to use new layouts.

If anything, I really believe the stock layout is the game's biggest drawback. I'd love to have two or three more boards.

I use the DragonStrike board, but considering that some of it's spaces go diagonal I've had to modify some of the rules to make them work.

I think I might try to cut one of my four boards up into 4 quarters plus the center room to take the game further over any one side of a full board.
Just an idea. Might happen.
I don't like the idea of a fully modular game though...

Now I'm intrigued.
I've been looking for DragonStrike on ebay.de for some time now, for the boards. I want to use them.
What are those rule changes?

To be quite honest with you, I've only played on those boards once or twice... not enough to actually put those rules down in writing. We just kind of winged it for those couple of games.

I haven't played on those boards for over 10 years, so honestly I don't remember.

The Tavern floor plan is flipped - no big deal, but whoever wants to print it should be aware of this before doing so.

This may have already been addressed, but the two different PDFs I find online have the same problem.

I have corrected it and upgraded the art here:
