Re: WOTC Online Scenarios

We have our little Heroscapers scenario up on the front page now as well.

Re: WOTC Online Scenarios

When I try to open it, I get a "format error: not a pdf or corrupted."

Edited: this is referring to the prequel posted here on heroscapers. Is the error on my computer or is it a bad file?

Because player one could win in two turns? Or is there a rule that I'm missing which addresses this?
Well, I guess you could win in on the first order marker with Ornak, Brunak, and Cyprien, but only if your opponent picked Cyprien as the marked hero (which if I saw this combination on the board, I probably wouldn't pick Cyprien as the marked hero -- but then again...).

Plus if you "exit" a figure, it is removed from the game. Removing Cyprien quickly and then finding out he isn't the marked hero would really put you at a disadvantage for the remaining figures.

The more I think about this scenario, the more I like it. Lots of strategery going on: from the "defender" postion 1) what hero do you "mark", 2) do you go after the mark right away or bluff and go after a "decoy", etc.; from the "escapee" 1) try to out guess who was picked as the mark, 2) don't exit too soon or may handicap your army if you guessed wrong, etc.
Well, I was thinking you picked Theracus and Cyprien, and a bunch of squads. That way either of them could make it out quickly.

But I didn't notice that you don't know who the marked hero is! So that's better.

Re: WOTC Online Scenarios

All these scenarios look great!

To be honest, I really didn't think I'd be getting much play out of the master set dungeon, but with the addition of the prequil scenario and the alternate rooms I forsee much more playtime that I had anticipated.



Stupid question: In the Crazy Troll scenario, does the opposing player decide whether or not to take the troll's leaving engagement attacks or does it just always (or I suppose never . . . ) take them?

You could still do that though, just have Theracus cary the second hero to the exit so they both leave at the same time.

I don't need no instructions to know how to rock.

Thanks to WotC and the team behind this! I like the looks of the scenarios and am looking forward to playing them.

It kinda feels like a "Heroscape Puzzle"...

Spoiler Alert!

The hero is chosen at random. So that army build is still valid for a fast exit strategy.

I don't think Theracus could carry the second figure out. As soon as Theracus was on the exit hexes, then he would be removed from the board and you place the carried figure next to Theracus after the move, but since he is gone, you can't place a figure next to him. Remember carry doesn't really mean the "carry" the figure -- it works more like a move then summon mechanically.

Of course if I saw an opponent in this scenario (i.e., Theracus + another hero + squads), it would be easy to see the stategy. I think I would counter with moving a squad(s) onto the exits. Maybe move the knights and Allistar or Sir Gilbert to fill the 5 exit hexes (you can cover all 5 exit hexes with either of these combos in one turn or two turns). At least now you would have to fight to leave.

If you don't like knights (but who doesn't), you could do the same with orcs (heavy + Tornack or Grimnak or Nerak would cover 6 spaces), Marrden Hounds or Deathstalkers or either of the cavalry squads would work at covering all the exits with just one squad. I'm sure there are others that would work too.

I had just assumed that movement-related abilities would have time to trigger before you exit, but after re-reading the scenario you're completely right. Still, you could move Theracus out on the next turn (though he would be increadable vulnerable.)

Re: WOTC Online Scenarios

Although on the defender side I could see Gladiatrons/X17 as a potential counterdraft...
