Hey I just wanted to let you all know That Truth was kind enough to let me put my home brew game Cave Raider in the downloads section.
If you collect miniatures such as D&D minis and want a simple solo dungeon crawl experience, that is fun and challenging, please give my little game a try. It is not pretty, but the mechanics are fairly sound. I would love some feedback on this game.

Cool. Downloaded and packed. I will print this up and try it out over the weekend at the In-laws. Thanks GB. 8)

Sweet. I'll take this for a spin. I love solo dungeon crawls.I warn you Imax. It might not be visualy up to your standards.
Oh also, you can play the game with other players as well, and it can be fun that way also.

I've played this a few times solo and it is great fun. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have. :D

I have been playing this little game a lot lately and tweaking some minor rule things. I have only ever beaten the game twice. I think my problem is that I refuse to run from a fight. I was thinking about taking some pics of the game being played.
One thing that I discovered is that this game is crazy portable. I took it to the beach condo with us last weekend and played while the kids napped.
Playing the game is similar in some ways to playing a game of solitaire. I play on a TV tray while watching TV since it doesn't require much room or an extravagant set-up. I have never played multiplayer though and would love to try it someday if any of my Texas friends are game.
Of all of my creations, this one is hands down my favorite.

OK I am on the verge of beating the Lich Lord (I think) I am on the third level in a 3 level game and have a party made up of a Champion, elf, orc, wolf, and thief. I have 2 magic swords, one for my Champion and the other for the Orc. I have a potion of strength as well. I am 2 rooms away from the Lich Lord's chambers, but I have to get ready for work.... I will have to finish it tonight. Wish me luck... BTW, I do not have a clear exit out of the dungeon since I arrived on level 3 by way of a trap, and do not have a rope, or a route to a stairs up room yet....
I have also been updating the rules and adding and clarifying some things. The option to trade with strangers upon and indifferent result during an encounter is the most notable change. This gives more use for treasure and allows players to get a wee bit more powerful if they happen to have gold at the right time. In my experiences, it is a rare thing to actually beat the game.

Made it to the Lich Lords room. I was on level three but had a large party so I pulled four cards in addition to the Lich Lord card. Fortunately the Lich Lord only had a wolf with him, a magic cloak, gold, silver and a desertion card! So I made the desertion roll for all of my guys and nobody deserted!! On to fight the Lich and as we approached he rolled a 1 the two times he had a chance to zap us with his Magic Bolt 2+.. So my elf engages the wolf and the rest of my crew are surrounding the Lich. Our gang up total came up to something like 16 against the Lich's 13 so we were at a +3. We rolled good enough for him to save so he rolls and gets a 3 (he only needs 2+). Then he attacks my Champion and forces me to save, I roll a 5!! Two more rounds like this and then finally the Lich Lord blows his roll and dies. I didn't lose a single raider. I found a way up to the second level and am now trying to get out of the dungeon. I'm stoked because it will be one of the rare times, that I have actually beaten the game.... That's if I can make it out.

The link wouldn't load for me.

I had never seen this before either, but I'd be really interested in checking it out. Link isn't working for me either; I also couldn't find it by searching the downloads section. Any chance of a repost? :)

This thread is from the early days of Heroscapers and the link was probally lost when the server was switched. Many downloads were lost during that switch. Maybe GB still has the game and can re-download it here to the new Scapers.

Yep, that's what I figured since my google searches bring up an older format message board :)

Working on a new version.

Sweet! Thanks, Grungebob. Looking forward to checking it out.
