Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

I am absolutely positive this has been asked before, but can't remember the answer. What do the titles to the waves mean? Did they have any impact on the heroscape story line? (i.e, who is Orm, and where did he return from)

Some of the waves have place names from Valhalla (e.g., Trollsford). But to my knowledge there has never been an explanation for names that don't appear among the units.

Not many people know this, but Orm's Return is actually an anagram for "Rum Snorter". That's why Dund's eyes are so glassy.

It all makes sense now.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Check either the Map Of Valhalla for a lot of waves that are based on locations or battlegrounds, or search the Heroscape Compendium.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

What height does a figure gain per ladder rung it stands on? I couldn't find this in the rule book.

More specifically, if a unit stands on the third ladder rung from the ground, will it be engaged with a 5 height figure on the space adjacent to the landing space?

Ladder rungs are quite finnicky.

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Compare it to the tiles (or wall) adjacent to the figure. If the figure's base meets or exceeds a level line, it is on that level.

There's hardly a story aspect to Heroscape beyond the basic concept of the conflict in which players take part in (kyrie dude finds wellspring, everyone finds out, war of the ages starts, things come to Valhalla from dozens of other planets and dimensions, etc.). Hell, I still don't understand why I can have an army of units that follow different generals. Wouldn't it make sense to be forced into having unified armies for the sake of the lore (what little lore I've ever heard)? Why can units that follow Utgar team up with units that follow Jandar? And so on and so forth?

Meh, I suppose it hardly matters. Though, I wouldn't argue against getting some more background on lore and how the waves play into the story. Oh well, as long as I can still play the game.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Each Ladder Rung covers two levels.

The FotA Rulebook explains Ladder Engagement on page 7 and 8. The only thing that gets a little tricky is when one figure on the ladder is just above another figure on the landing space (example 29).

No. A figure on ladder rung 3 would be 5 levels higher than the landing space. A height-5 opposing figure on a space next to the landing space (and on the same level as the landing space) would not be engaged with the figure on the ladder. Rung 1 is 1 level above (higher than) the landing space, rung 2 is 3 levels above, rung 3 is 5 levels above, rung 4 is 7 levels above, and so on.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

If I roll 4 Skulls and the defender rolls 2 Shields, does that count as two hits to the defender's Life or just one?

Basically, does the Dice Rolling determine how many (un)successful attacks were made? So in the above case you just made two successful attacks?

Or does the Dice Rolling determine whether or not you successfully attacked? So in the above case you successfully attacked, but only 1 Life point is removed?

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

That would be two points of damage to the defending figure
