C3G Interview

Fellow Heroscapers, please join me in a journey back to the earlier days of C3G when no one had any idea that this group was built to last. Originally posted on 8–25–2011.

How long have you followed C3G? What was the first set you remember?

I’ve followed C3G since right around the release of World’s Finest, which is still an awesome set. I still haven’t played a few scenarios from that though. Someday soon ....

I started playtesting for the X-Men set, which was a lot of fun. My first playtests were on Ravaged Road, which was the first map I made for the C3G mapmaking group, which Griffin invited me to because I expressed some strong opinions (like I usually do) and I guess some of my Valhalla maps looked okay.

DC or Marvel?

I hadn’t

Autumn Custom Competition!


Fee fi fo fum! I smell a custom competition! Giants come in all shapes and sizes, er, all shapes and one size: huge. While most of these giants are solitary soldiers in Valhalla, some have bonds so tight they remain together even here, and it is your job to help these gentle* giants settled in around here.



Visit the Contest Thread for more information, and be sure to get your entries in by September 30 to qualify for all the fabulous prizes.**

*These giants are not to be considered gentle. Design at your own risk.
**There are no prizes.

So @LoveElemental is coming to Clevland tomorrow. Hopefully she'll have a good time. I know I will. She's going to be in town until the 28th. We gotta make all the best time from it.

We were considering going to the casino to play the pennyslots... she's lucky, but we're both broke 20-somethings. Maybe she'll turn a $10 profit.

We do want to play some Heroscape while we're together. And some other games I've bought over the years, for example I'm super excited to play Twilight Struggle with her. I also want to give Summoner Wars an honest go, but I'm ok if we don't get to that.

As a more plasticrack-birthday present to myself, I've gone ahead and ordered this guy from miniature market.

C3G Strategy - September 2018

C3G Strategy Guide
Ares
By: Lazy Orang


I’ve always loved mythology, ever since I was very young. I also enjoy Heroscape battles that turn into fast-paced, bloodsoaked massacres. Let’s have a look at a unit that scratches both itches, shall we?

Analyzed Statistics

Left Box Breakdown
Species – Olympian (no effect)
Uniqueness – Event Hero (event heroes are similar to unique heroes, but they have extra defenses, e.g. they cannot be mind-controlled or auto-killed, and do not count as unique heroes for the purposes of special powers—read the full event hero rules)
Class – Warlord (no effect in pure C3G, though he is able to bond with the Roman Legionnaires if playing mixed—at which stage you’re legally obliged to call him

FFC #19 - CHALLENGE: Writing Characters

Posted September 14th, 2018 at 01:00 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 19

I wanted to give my readers a quick update on Horizon in Sight. The fiction is moving along. I've split part two in half, so there are now four parts in total. This is shaping up to be the longest thing I have ever written, fan fiction or otherwise.

Part three introduces a lot of new side characters, and upon writing them I've realized that they aren't quite as alive as I would like. My writing process is great for assigning character traits and working out what they need for the fiction and how they go together. In short, it deals with the technical side of things.

Unfortunately, the only way to make characters be alive - that is, actually feel like a real person - is to make them real in your mind, to the point where you automatically know how they would act and what they would say. And the only way to do that (at least properly) is just to spend time exploring them, usually through the use of writing...
