Castle Crawl!

Posted February 17th, 2012 at 01:09 PM by kolakoski
Well met!

[This is the first in a series of maps inspired by the "Spirit" of the dungeon crawl.]

There are 16-hex start zones in Asphalt and Concrete outside the Castle. The elevated areas jutting out on the far right and left (Dungeon 7-hexers), within the Castle, may also be used as start zones.

The main idea here is for there to be two competing parties of adventurers. Any of the "classic" scenarios (kill-'em-all, escort, capture the flag, etc.) may be played on this Map. Use of the rules for Giants in The Giant Grove of Utgar! will re-create the "Wandering Monster" or the Dungeon Master-directed Monster aspects of the classic dungeon crawl, without the former's randomness or the latter's arbitrariness, while preserving the environment's general hostility.

"On the adjacent card table (placed on either end) the teams' cards will be placed on opposite sides. In the middle will be placed the cards for all the Giants:

* * * * *

When placing Order Markers (OMs), at the beginning of each Round, 1 (and only 1) OM (other than the X) must be placed on one of the Giants . . .

1. The Giants cannot be moved in such a way that they would risk falling damage, nor may they be moved onto Molten Lava or Lava Field hexes . . .;

2. Giants may never attack Giants . . .;

3. Giants may not risk Leaving Engagement Attacks, for which purpose all [heroes] are considered "enemies," even those [heroes] of the player controlling them (which otherwise would be considered "friendly"); thus, you may not move Giants out of engagement with any [heroes], even your own;

except when Mindshackled, Blood Frenzied, Enslaved, etc."

Below is an arbitrary list of "appropriate" (no large/huge, soulborg, or undead)heroes.

The List








No heroes!

[This Map may also be used to play a heroes-only version of The Lost City of Ashra!]
