M.A.R.S. vs. Birds and Tetsuo Tyrell

Posted August 8th, 2020 at 07:00 PM by Astroking112
Around a month ago, I began experimenting with the Online HeroScape App to see if I could play some games against real opponents despite the pandemic. @Leo Ultra and I set up a game so that we could play asynchronously, each taking a turn about once a day (through the power of years of friendship, we had achieved a level of trust just high enough to let each other roll the other person's dice in a monitored chat log. Truly a progressive idea). M.A.R.S. had already been floating about on my mind for several years a good while, so it had felt like the perfect time to throw him in with the Hoplitrons to see how it plays. Here is the result:

COVID Doorman

Posted August 7th, 2020 at 09:11 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
So I am back at work. My main jobs at the moment are letting people into the building to see the counselors who have offices in the basement and untangling the paperwork that has accumulated while we were closed.

I get to dress in full PPE to open the door. Mask, clear face shield, sterile gloves and gown. I meet them at the door and have to ask them health questions.

Do you have fever? A cough? Breathing difficulties? No? Then you can come in. No one has answered yes to any query yet. I suppose I’ll have to turn them away if they do.

Then they can come in to the hand sanitizer station where they lather up before using the elevator.

When they exit the elevator in the basement where they counselors’ offices are I call the elevator back and sanitize it. Spraying and polishing. That’s it. That’s my job.

This morning I had an elderly woman with dementia. Her husband dropped her off. She didn’t want to wear her...

COVID Chronicles

Posted July 30th, 2020 at 12:51 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
When this whole COVID pandemic started I was just like everybody else. Didn’t know much. Then the lockdowns started. Where I work most people were told to stay home and were laid off. I got the flu one day and it freaked everyone out. Then they shut down my work place completely.

I didn’t mind staying home. I decided to sell my house, so I began fixing it up and cleaning it out. In the beginning getting wood for repairs and new flooring and ceilings was a hassle- waiting in line to go in the store, socially distanced. Then the store was shut down. It was an inconvenience but I didn’t let it slow me down.

I still walked every morning, but now the streets of this city were deserted. On an hour long walk I might only see two people and a handful of cars. And I thought I finally have enough room. I’m not a real social person. I don’t like crowds or bars. I like privacy and space. And I finally had it. If someone was walking near me we’d both move further away....

Customs Creation - July 2020

Customs Creations Interview

How did Heroes of Middle Earth get started?

The first time was back around 2013. A group of Heroscapers—including White Knight, infectedsloth, and myself, who are all part of the “reboot”—decided that we wanted to have high-quality custom cards for Lord of the Rings characters that the whole community could use. We put together a big process and set to tackling some of the toughest designs right off the bat. Our very first one was Gandalf.

The project died out around 2015 from a lack of momentum stemming from a bunch of self-created problems.

Earlier in 2020 some of us expressed interest in rebooting the project. We've picked up several new contributors and we’re taking a more streamlined approach this time around. We’re saving

Online Con 2020

Posted July 20th, 2020 at 09:32 AM by truth
Updated July 20th, 2020 at 11:08 PM by Xorlof (discord link updated)
With Gencon cancelled for the year, we wanted to make sure there was still a big Heroscape tournament in August 2020 to keep the competitive scene going and give people a chance to roll some dice. So, without more introduction, we have Online Con 2020, July 31st through August 2nd. It's three days of all-online Heroscape tournaments: Friday, Saturday, Sunday. There will be two events each day, ending a bit early on Sunday. All of the games will happen over Discord voice chat on the Online Heroscape Tournament Discord Server. There will be a big voice chat where we roll out matchups and give tournament info, and then you'll go into 1 on 1 chatrooms to play your matches with your paired opponent.

We'll have a set of Online Con exclusive prize dice for every event winner, and prize dice for the top 4 for the Championship.


Here's the list of events:

July 27-July 30
