Question Petition to post official senarios on heroscapers.com

To the Heroscaper community:

I assume this is probably a minority of us, but I know my Heroscape moments have proved ultimately successful when I can back up the gameplay with some purpose. I know that there have been the development of many declarations, so I made this thread as more of a speak-out for those who are interested. I want to see if we, as a community, can develop a plan to receive the Thormun's Journal entries and character bios for the Wave 9, Wave 10, Battle for the Underdark, D1, D2, and D3. I want to see if there is any way, through our collaboration, to convince the officials at WOTC to release the backstory behind this sudden influx of characters. A decent bridge behind the storylines of Swarm of the Marro, and the Battle for the Underdark. What has happened to Sgt. Drake? Did Aquilla succeed in driving off the Marro from Ticalla? (Assuming since she can lend forces to the Underdark battles). What was the reasoning behind the Generals summoning every character?

Do not get me wrong, I love the amount of effort the design team has put into our beloved game. But a storyline for these characters would thematically allow these D&D characters to truly belong in 'scape. And Valkrill can have his moment to shine in the backstory with some articles on him.

I am a big creative writer, and I've tried to create a custom understanding of this chronological hole. But so far, everything that keeps coming messes up my attempts. I believe this is very little to ask for.

Is anyone interested in my cause? If not, PM me with ways to improve my request.

But I would really love a return of the backstory. I know it has been written and submitted, as said by someone on this site, just neglected and put aside.

Those interested in a return of the backstory:
1. Majora's Incarnation
2. LordEsenwienIV
3. J4Jandar
4. Kutless
5. Grim
6. The Wall
7. Hogg
8. chas
9. killergoat27
10. Tmac2200
11. Jormi Boced
12. Lord Pyre
13. machinekng
14. Boottrap
15. cmgames ~Z

Oof...I got nothing to sign with now

Re: Where is the Heroscape Backstory? Oh Thormun??

Truth has said before that there are journal entries waiting to be entered though I think that lineage died with the progression from Hasbro to Wizards.

I love the backstory too.

Majora...Truth writes Thormun's Journal...and if you haven't noticed he has been a bit busy with new Heroscape Wave design as well as his own game company and other game projects.

From what he has told us in the past there are a bunch of entries that have not been posted on the website..not his fault..but the Heroscape.com site hasn't really been updated much at all in quite awhile and he can't just upload the entries himself.

Agreed and I think it's unlikely we're going to see any prominent official release of the journal entries; it just doesn't seem to "fit" with what WotC is doing now. But perhaps they could do a low-key release of what's been written already; it would please many of us immensely, and what's the harm?

Re: Where is the Heroscape Backstory? Oh Thormun??

One Question: If Sir Dupuis can upload the OFFICIAL FAQ to this "Unofficial" site and not Hasbro.com or wizards.com's "Official" site, why can't truth upload the OFFICIAL backstory to this site?

I never read more than a few paragraphs of Thormun's Journal as I guess I am one who cares more about gameplay than backstory, but I can empathize with you all wanting to have it as I know other wargames like Warhammer have intricate backstories and Heroclix has the entire comic collection as backstory and that can be quite a draw for a lot of people. Don't add me to the list, but I hope you get a lot of people to sign up.

Because the one is authorized to do so and the other is not.

Re: Where is the Heroscape Backstory? Oh Thormun??

I'm in for sure.

But I did suspect the problem is that WOTC would have to pay someone to do it or continue doing it. Its ironic that many of us would love to work on it, but can't. That's capitalism...protect your right to continue material, even as you don't and it dies on the vine. To be fair, author's estates often do the same thing.
