Luckiest Battle Ever!

Battle Report: Capture the Flag in the Forest

Wonder of wonders, my fifteen-year-old daughter has begun playing with us. She says itís because of this blog- that she didnít really understand what HS was about until she read what it was aboutÖ which seems to be the problem with everyone whoís never played it. And did you know that this site is blocked at her High School?

Anyway, so weíve all been playing, and my daughter has been enjoying it. Weíve tried to hold back- just get her to play a little at time, so we donít blow her mind. She gets the same army every time: Warriors of Ashra, the frog warriors (custom squad with only 2 move and land and five in water plus little spears that can sometimes stun as well as wound) and Xantha.

Xantha is a favourite of ours. You might know her as Ana Karithon, but before she appeared in HS DnD she was Xantha. Sheís not a healer in our game, but a powerful sorcerer with a decent ranged...

Oh my gosh Otonashi!

Posted February 11th, 2010 at 12:29 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
With all the hoopla about green lizards that love dragons I decided to write a romantic Valentineís Day story about green eggs being hatched by a dragon named Ham. Just kidding. This is about Otonashi. You might think there is no connection, but maybe there is?

My family and I donít have many of the wave boosters. We didnít know where to buy them and honestly thereís only one store that sells them in this whole gray city. Plus we always have to watch our pennies. We had MS1 and 2 and were very excited when we found the booster with Otonashi- our first booster.

We started ďthe heroscape jarĒ on the kitchen table, and whenever anyone had some extra change, it went into the jar. (my sons mowed lawns and shoveled snow to add to the jar) We saved up enough to get most of wave 8.

Chardris gets a little bit of play and we ending up getting the Templars to go with Sir Dupuis but we never found any of Kato-Katsuroís boys (except...

We Leave The Dead On The Field

Posted February 6th, 2010 at 05:33 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
Yes, yes, I read the rule books long ago, and I think it recommends removing dead figures. Their bases are kind of big, and they do get in the way. But it didnít seem right, to me and my sons. And so we stopped cleaning up the bodies.

At first we were amazed at the carcasses. They make a map of where the action happened, where it moved to next and where each figure fell. Like a crime scene. We all play favorites and each spot where our number one hero dropped was somehowÖ. Sacred.

Once we played a massive battle- the scenario was simple- one side had to move ten refugees across the board, and the other side had to stop them. The refugees were guarded by troops and there were many mounted figures. (We have a lot of custom horses and other mounts). The attackers swooped in on Isengarde Wolves- nasty mounts with biting mouths- and the destruction began. The piles of bodies became so large that it impeded movement. Figures began to gain height...

Sparks From a *Rep* Virgin

Posted February 5th, 2010 at 10:58 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I am a rep virgin.
Iím very new here and I have never given rep to anyone yet.
Iíve been reading about it, I think I understand how it works, Iíve seen photos of how itís done, yet Iím still scared. What if I donít do it right?
I know Iím new and any rep I can produce will be small, but size isnít important, is it? Itís the intention that counts, right?

When I first became a site supporter I didnít know anything about rep. And then when I found out I felt revulsion- I didnít want rep, I didnít want to be judged or a judge, the whole thing seemed to be some sordid stroking fest that terrified me. Did I mention that I can be a bit of a recluse?

But as the days passed, I read more about the site and more importantly discovered what isnít exactly written -that there is a community here, and for some of us, like me, I will probably never meet any of the faces behind the avatars. Rep is a friendly way of saying we appreciate...

Saving Scape!

Posted February 4th, 2010 at 09:32 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
Go back to the land!

I have a nasty fever with a rotten cold. Itís been through all the kids so I guess itís my turn.
As I lay awake last night, amidst feverish nightmares, a brilliant plan congealed in my congested noggin -a plan to save Scape.

Certainly there has been much written about DnD Scape and whatís happening with that. I believe in recycling as much as the next hobo, but I hunger for the sweet taste of Classic Scape. Is DnD just slightly retooled to appeal to a broader demographic or is it a last cash grab in a fading product line? I decided to believe the former, for we all need something to believe in, now that Obamaís first hundred days have past. I think WOTC are trying to get even more people interested in Scape- and thatís when the idea came to me- farmers!

Thereís something like 6 million farmers in the USA, and I bet they donít have time to learn a new game because theyíre too busy driving...
