TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 3

FFC #3 - Who will (and won't) be in Horizon in Sight

Now that I'm nearing the end of the phase on subcharacters, I figured I could tell you who exactly will be showing up in Horizon. As always, this is liable to change. New and old characters can sneak in there one way or another, and some characters might change or be dropped completely. But at this point, that's pretty unlikely, at least for those characters who play pivotal roles. Background characters are always capable of popping into existence during writing.

Dan will of course be there, as will a lot of other familiar faces from the Quest. A lot of them have changed quite a bit, so I'm not going to spoil things by detailing who they are or what they do. But a quick mention of each won't hurt.

Heleer. Heleer has always been an integral part of Dan's tale, and she remains so in Horizon. This time though, she has an actual past (as opposed to the Quest, where she seemingly sprang into existence...

'Scaper of the Month - December 2017

Posted December 8th, 2017 at 12:01 PM by HS Codex

Scaper of the Month
Author: The Grim Reaper’s Friend

Going into this interview, all I knew about skyknight was that he had a slightly disturbing avatar. After talking to him though, I was deeply impressed with who he is, what he’s done, and the contributions he’s made to HeroScape. After reading his interview, I think you will be too.


Who are you really?
Rod Phelps.

How old are you?

What is your occupation?
Project manager for Sikorsky Aircraft, currently on the CH-53 marine helicopter.

What’s another board game/RPG you enjoy and why?
Love Descent, grew up loving Heroquest and such but Descent really took it to the next level. Not a big RPG guy, but this fits exactly what I was looking for.

What other interests do you have besides...

Hasbro brought us dragons and a hippogriff, er, gryphillin, Wizards of the Coast gave us more, albeit smaller, dragons and a hydra. C3V introduced even more dragons and a chimera.

FFC #2 - TLFF First Preview

I haven't really said much about By Any Other Path, the supposedly last fan fiction I will be writing. The story did keep changing while I was developing it, but given that you will theoretically be stuck with it forever (), and that I know what I want it to be, I figured it couldn't hurt to show you where I'm at, and see what you think.

The driving idea behind The Last Fan Fiction (henceforth called TLFF), is a return to my roots. And by that, I don't mean I'll be making it up as I go and spelling 'he' as 'eh' all the time.

My first fan fiction was a tale of a group of friends, roaming Valhalla and joining forces with different peoples from different times, to fight diverse enemies who threatened all the land. Valhalla Reborn smacked of classic 'Scape, and that's the feeling I want for TLFF. Not post-apocalyptic, or home world, or some high emotional thing like Red. I want a fun tale.

So what does that...

ARV Maps - December 2017

ARV Contest Review
Uncharted Wellsprings
By: Sir Heroscape

Hey all, this month is our second installment of our contest reviews! This time we’ll be discussing the maps we saw submitted in our Uncharted Wellsprings map building contest.

Contest Overview:

The Uncharted Wellsprings contest was one of our favorites! We kept all the terrain and map building parameters the same except for the fact that the map submissions had to have a designated wellspring indicated by a power-side-up power glyph. We were excited about the prospect of each map submission having to balance their design with a specific power glyph as well as the inclusion of a wellspring, and we were surprised by just how many different designs were submitted.


This contest was one of our most popular, with a whopping
