Heroes of 'Scape (RPG)

~Heroes of 'Scape~


Heroes of ‘Scape is an RPG-inspired modification for Heroscape. Despite being an RPG, there is no actual ‘role-playing’ involved. Heroes of 'Scape is not its own game, but a tool to be used with the rest of Heroscape. Simply create your Hero, team up with other Heroes, destroy your opponents, gain experience, obtain new skills, collect items, and fight on. The simplicity driven Heroscape aspect of the game ensures that Heroes of ‘Scape, although more complex than Heroscape in its own right, is very easy to pick up and play.

Creating a Hero is simple:
Step 1) Choose your Race.
Step 2) Choose your Class.
Step 3) Choose your Special Power.

The use of these Heroes is pretty open. How my friends and I play is we gather once a week. The game is often scenario based: like adventuring into a dungeon or defending your camp against an ambush. The enemy is a normal Army like you would build in a typical Heroscape battle. After the battle is done, the players tally up their experience and acquire their new skills. If we don’t play another game right then and there we pack up, and when we come back next week they can use that same Hero or make a new one if they weren’t satisfied with its performance.

If you enjoy this game, then I need your help to make it better. The more results I get to see, the better I can tell what's balanced, what's not, what's working and what's not. I don't ask for much, but there is a bare minimum I need to work with to tell how things worked out. You're free to include more than the minimum in your report, but here is an example of what I need:

Re: Heroes of 'Scape (RPG)

Here is my official call to arms! This game is much better with more abilities and more options. So I'm trusting in the creative Heroscapers community to throw your ideas at me.

Ideas for Special Powers mostly

You can also post any custom ideas to the Custom Ideas for Heroes of 'Scape Thread.

Re: Heroes of 'Scape (RPG)

Fantastic work! (+rep)

Will try to come up with some powers as was thinking about doing something similar.

Fenryll (French miniatures manufacturer) make a series of 28mm figure which are the same character at 3 different ages/equipment levels which would go really well.

Can't wait to hear what you come up with!

You bring up a very good point, I forgot about figures. Every Race/Class/Special Power has a Heroscape in mind. I guess some are obvious, but I didn't think about it, since its just obvious to me. I'll start work on a Figure Guide, which will also be a Height Guide, based on what Race, Class, and Abilities you choose.

And also, this isn't my first try at this RPG thing

Re: Heroes of 'Scape (RPG)

answering the call to arms:
medical treatment: At the start of this figure’s turn roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 10 or higher, you may remove 1 wound marker from this card or any adjacent figure's card.
hopefully this helps a little

That's a good idea. It will help some parties that don't have a dedicated healer. At some point I plan on working Items back into the game. What were you thinking for who gets that power? I was thinking Ranger, Warrior (Fighter), and maybe Scout (which hasn't actually been released yet...).

Re: Heroes of 'Scape (RPG)

I realized that managing a Hero may not be as obvious as I made it sound, so I made a series of examples to hopefully make it clear how the whole stat modification and special power points work. I'll post them here as well as in one of the reserved post slots.

HERO CREATION EXAMPLES

Basic Example:
Spoiler Alert!

Example 1: Changing Class, Choosing One New Special Power Each Level
Spoiler Alert!

Example 2: Choosing Multiple Special Powers
Spoiler Alert!

Example 3: Leveling Up Special Powers
Spoiler Alert!

Example 4: Human with Sub-Class
Spoiler Alert!

Example 5: Wizard with School of Magic Choice
Spoiler Alert!

Example 6: Changing to Wizard Class from another Class
Spoiler Alert!



And here is the most recent ERRATA found.

I know upgrading from a level one power to a level three power would cost two points, but would it be the same for the example I was thinking of?
If you have Vanish 2, you want to buy Vanish 3, you spend 1 point. Any skill points put into a skill, whether it be 1, 2 , or 3 is already put into that skill. If you want to level up a skill, you only need to spend the difference.

Good question. If my examples don't clear up any more questions, feel free to ask. Chances are someone else is confused too.

Ok, thanks! I have a level 4 ninja(Moriko) going solo(Cleared two areas of my custom campaign). So far, she has destroyed:

Area 1:
1x Fyorlag Spiders
2x Earth Elemental
3x Swog Rider
1 Feral Troll
Boss: Gurei Oni

Area Two:
1x Dzu-Teh
4 Greater Ice Elementals
Boss: Nerak(Was buffed by more Treasure Glyphs than the GIEs.)


I have a rule for this run that, if Moriko dies, she can start over from the beginning of the area, but loses ALL Treasure Glyphs from that room she collected on the previous run. After this, I'm running an all-ninja/rogue party(Adding in Mika, Shiori, and Kumiko).



Some suggestions:

1. Add in more mounts! And maybe even make a mount an extra ability your character can get once they reach level 4(Without spending skill points on it).

2. Add in kyrie and elementals as races.



Your curiosity will be the death of you....
