C3G Interview - January 2018

Posted January 28th, 2018 at 08:04 PM by HS Codex

C3G Interview
Good Pig
Author: LordEsenwienIV


Here is another classic interview, this time with Good Pig. This interview originally aired January 24, 2011.


As a C3G Sidekick, do you have some words of advice for the allies?

Sure. Just try to find your niche within the C3G community and be willing and able to help out wherever you are needed. I’m still a pretty new member to C3G myself, and I’m looking to grow my skills in design and would love to possibly get into map making if I had the time.

How did you get chosen to be a sidekick?

I can’t say for sure; the heroes decided on that in secret. I’ve been trying to make use of my graphic design talents within the Art Department and I’m sure that has played a hand in my fast promotion.

Do you have a favorite unit? Why is he/she

Customs Creation - January 2018

Customs Creation
Dripping with (Not Too Much!) Theme
Author: Scytale

Balance, theme, creativity, and playability are all key aspects of custom design. My previous article took a look at the aspect of balance. This article will examine how theme can—and should—affect a custom design, as well as the pitfall of becoming too enamored with it.

The original Heroscape designers decided that the theme they wanted for Heroscape was: “all themes!” Fantasy? Yep. Historical? Yes. Sci-fi? Definitely. It wouldn’t have to stop there either (though teddy bears and kitty cats might be stretching it from a classic canon perspective). Any warrior worthy of fighting on the battlefields of Valhalla is fair game.

That said, Heroscape usually sticks to tropes. For example, elves are nimble archers and magic users. While the game has its own take

C3G Strategy - January 2018

C3G Strategy Guide
Mephisto
Author: Ronin


Analyzed Statistics

Left Box Breakdown
Species – Demon (Synergy)
Uniqueness – Event Hero (Synergy)
Class – Hell Lord (Synergy)
Personality – Manipulative
Size/Height – Medium 6

Being a demon and a Hell lord grants Mephisto some very mild synergy, but the most important thing in Mephisto’s left box is his event hero status. Being an event hero earns Mephisto a lot of handy immunities. The two big ones, built into event hero status, are that he can’t be automatically destroyed by special powers (taking 4 wounds instead) and that an opponent can’t use any special power to take control of him.

Mephisto is also immune to many offensive

ARV Maps - January 2018

Map Craft
Pathing
By: BiggaBullfrog


You may be thinking, I hear “pathing” all the time, but what does it really have to do with map-making? And why does autocorrect keep changing it to bathing? First off, it’s because “pathing” isn’t a real word and “bathing” is. I believe pathing was first “officially” coined by mad_wookiee in his article about it in his Cartographer’s Toolbox (an awesome resource for any mapmaker, go check it out). Pathing is essentially the use of paths in a map to get from point A to B. Today, we’ll be looking at how you can use that to enhance your map.

Why Is Pathing Important?

Really, paths are crucial to a map. They connect start zones to height, to glyphs, and to each other. Maps with simple pathing will have a straightforward route for armies to follow where they will then meet in the middle
