Welcome! This is the final, completed version of the Knights of the Daystorm campaign. This campaign includes:
  • 5 complete scenarios
  • 15 new Treasure Glyphs
  • 4 new Ancient Artifact cards

If I Ran Heroscape (Part 2: Armies)

Posted July 15th, 2008 at 12:16 PM by Velenne
In my previous blog, I asked what you thought you could do to improve Heroscape overall. I've since had a few ideas on ways to improve some existing armies which I'll share now. But first, let's agree on what I mean by "armies":

Armies (n) - A group of themed and synergistic units in Heroscape typically but not necessarily belonging to the same Archkyrie General. Ex: Orcs, Knights, Vipers.

Now on with the show...

Cowboys - I'd love it if these guys had an Ulginesh-type figure that would allow you to easily field them. It would be somewhat conditional though, since cowboys don't work together by nature. Probably a d20 roll that let you take a turn with a different cowboy each time you succeeded with it- almost like a frenzy. A squad of cowboys would help too.

Gladiators - These guys could really use some squad lovin'. It's a scary thought given Spartucus' powerful enhancement but why else would he cost so much? I'd love...

TeamFortress/Heroscape needs YOU

Posted June 9th, 2008 at 11:42 AM by Velenne

Sun Tzu said that, and I think he knows a little more about fighting than you do buddy because he invented it! Then he perfected it so that no man could best him in the ring of honor! Then he used all of his fight money to buy two of every animal, and he herded them onto a boat... and then he beat the crap out of every single one of them! And from that day forward whenever there are a lot of animals together in one place it's called a TZU!

Welcome to TeamFortress. This game consists of 9 classes, each with entirely unique and interesting abilities. In this Heroscape crossover, each class is represented as a Unique Hero. You'll be fielding small teams of these and activating them as squads.

A few of us in the custom forum have created a full working ruleset for the game...

If I Ran Heroscape, I Would...

In the name of sheer narcissism, I've decided to collect some of the ideas I've shared in the various WotC feedback threads and post them here. I actually put some thought into these ideas and sincerely believe they have merit in their own right- not because they're mine or anything. Really!

Tell you what: read the first one and if you don't like it you can dismiss me as being a totally self-absorbed, incompetent loony.

Here's what I would do for the next Master Set:

For the third master set, I think WotC would positively crush all previous $ale$ numbers if they pulled off a successful modular "Cityscape" model. Imagine several 4-sided buildings with hinges in the corners so you had

Heroscape Party Fouls

Posted May 22nd, 2008 at 12:17 PM by Velenne
There have been numerous threads discussing the fair play and honesty components of Scape. We all remember the devolution and brain-cell loss associated with the Stinger Denial thread, or the events which lead to the creation of the Dice Rolling Magna Carta.

I originally posted this as a thread in the General section of the forum. Folks had some really brilliant submissions! It is important to note that these rules have nothing to do with actual mechanics of the game itself! Only what goes beyond the hexes. The only other rule was that the party foul has to have actually happened in the submitter's presence. So here they are in no particular order:

Heroscape Party Foul #1: Kicking the table and knocking over everything.

Heroscape Party Foul #2: Taking the book or holder of the unit cards onto the toilet with you in order to select your army. In fact, never mix Heroscape with bodily fluids of any kind.

Heroscape Party Foul #3: Bringing...
