Ask Papa-'Scape #7

Posted October 7th, 2008 at 08:23 AM by Revdyer
Good morning, again, boys and girls! It is a happy Tuesday and raining where I am, so it is time to turn to the burning questions of the day being asked of Papa-'Scape.

The first one comes from deep within the Week@Heroscapers, October 6 blog, in a very interesting article about drafting. It is suggested, as the method for beginning the draft:

Ask Papa-Scape who goes first.

The answer is simple, of course. Papa-'Scape goes first. If I'm not there, then you go first. If there is more than one you (or more than one ewe, for that matter), then you roll the d20 and the person who rolls highest goes first. After that, the draft turn passes to the next tallest person and ends up with the shortest person, who is either Jim or theGuru.

Now a question from Revdyer's PM mailbox:

I recently received the object of my desire: The fabled krug pack. It was tapped up, which I found odd, but hey, I won it at a tournament so it could...

Dear Popa-'Scape,
I was politically offended by your answer to the question about Sarah Palin. So, I here and now call you out and ask: "That Joe Biden...is he hot or what?"

Dear Irate,

Hi there, boys and girls! Papa-'Scape has just returned from a week with Revdyer in the mountains of Western North Carolina (Black Mountain, specifically). He was up there teaching an elder hostel (angry old folks) about the history of Christianity and the history of the American Civil War. It was really difficult to listen to him talk for an hour and a half each morning on both of those topics (there's three hours wasted for Papa-'Scape!) and there was no internet access and if it had not been so beautiful (and some of the people interesting) I would have been bored to death. But now we're back and I have two interesting (to me) questions from Revdyer's PM mail box. (You can PM me with your questions there too!)

First, Fuzzie Fuzz forwarded this:

Dear Papa 'Scape,

My friend is a really sore loser. Whenever I do damage to his figures, he shrieks, lights my cards on fire, cuts the heads off of all my figures, kills a kitten, gnaws on my Krug,

Good morning, boys and girls! (It is always morning somewhere.) I hope you all have had a safe and happy weekend, not too soggy, unless you’re on the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast, where we know you are very soggy indeed today and probably won’t be able to read this anyway until you get some power back on. We’re wishing you well and a speedy and full recovery from the storms.

I’ve received several questions over the past few days and thought I’d better get cooking on answering these vital queries. Here is the first:

Dear [Papa-‘Scape].....

Sometimes my friends warp or bend my beloved cards, since I am the only person in my group that buys scape, should I just get protectors, or unleash my wrath?


Great question, Zanter! Papa-‘Scape is always in favor of using protection, whether it is motor oil in your car, card protectors for HeroScape, or other more personal protection items (such as athletic cups...what...

Happy days, boys and girls! As the weather in some places begins to turn cooler it is the very best time of year to be playing HeroScape. It is also a good time to get your favorite General's symbol tattooed to your forehead. Not many people can resist being intimidated when they sit down opposite a player with that kind of dedication, I'll tell you. There's just enough time between now and National HeroScape Day for your to get the tat all healed up before your favorite local tournament or game day. If you are really serious about the game, you can get all six Generals' symbols. No one would ever accuse you of being merely a casual player then.

Now to a few questions that have trickled in. (Remember, you can ask your questions by sending a PM to revdyer on this site.)

Dear Papa-'Scape,

I've built a map that has my opponent's starting zone all liquid lava. We had a big argument about whether he had to roll the d20 at the beginning of the game
