Re: RiSkape: HeroScape / Risk mashup

Hey guys. I was playing a game of Risk yesterday, and it made me want to get this moving again, since it will be awesome.

If anyone thinks they could play a game online at some point, I would be willing to try to fit it in, just PM me! Let's keep this ball rolling!

Re: RiSkape: HeroScape / Risk mashup

Hey guys, is there interest in restarting this in the community? I feel like we were really close to getting it off the ground last time, but nobody had enough time to test it out. I think this would be a really cool thing to actually get completed, but that would require a lot of people for it to really work.

Let's see what happens.

Re: RiSkape: HeroScape / Risk mashup

Hello all,

I know this is a necro of an older thread, and I am unsure how many people are still monitoring the project, but given @Dr.Goomonkey ’s most recent post here I thought this was the appropriate place to post this response in case anyone was interested in follow up.

I found this thread shortly after joining the forum here after a redirection from @IshMEL ’s fantastic Valhalla map, and after reading through it, my gaming group made some tweaks and set up to try and play through a full game. We’ve made it through 4 sessions totaling about 24 turns of play, and I wanted to share what we were doing in case anyone was still interested in trying to play something like this in their own circles, as we’ve had a great time and it’s been playing really well so far.

By and large, we’ve followed the basic rules laid out in the first post, with three players controlling individual generals in a free-for-all, with the victory condition being control of the majority of the wellsprings at the end of a round of gameplay (we’re playing using the Exploration rule variant and assuming each homeland contains a wellspring). We also decided that we would resolve every battle that occurred with a Heroscape game on a standardized (rulebook/BoV map or similar) 2 player map with an hour time limit and a persistence element. We keep the map and all of our bookkeeping in a spreadsheet to let us pick up exactly where we left off. All the specific rules we’re using are laid out below in case anyone would like to try them.

• General Gameplay: We have been playing the overall risk game in rounds, just as in a normal game of Heroscape, with each round progressing through Summoning, 3 turns for each player alternating clockwise by homeland (Jandar turn 1, Ullar turn 1, and so on until turn 2, which restarts the cycle), and then awarding Summoning Points for the next round and checking victory conditions. The only adjustment to normal Risk gameplay on the board is how Fortify actions are handled.

• Fortify: Instead of moving just a single set of troops, a player who spends a turn fortifying can move as many of their troops as they wish, with the caveats that any troops can move only one territory at a time, no troops may enter a territory that was not controlled by the player at the start of that turn, and no previously occupied territory may be left vacant at the end of the action. This allows armies to fully swap places to reinforce a territory and has helped the game move more quickly overall, but for those who want a slower, more strategic variant, leaving it as the standard rule shouldn’t unbalance anything else here.

• Summoning Points: Each player started with 500 army card points to be summoned into their homeland, and are awarded more points at the end of each round for every territory they control, with their homeland being worth 100, all other homelands being worth 75, and any other territory being worth 25.

• Summoning: This was where we made the most substantial tweaks to the basic rules, as we’re playing with a stricter version of the Permadeath variant rule as well as some additional changes. Firstly, units can only be summoned into friendly territories containing a wellspring. Secondly, I built an excel spreadsheet to track all summoning, as we allow unique units to be summoned only once, uncommon units to be summoned 5 times each, and common units to be summoned 15 times each. This, coupled with the slow summoning point gain, was intended to force us to play with everything our generals had, rather than just the units we were most comfortable with.

• Neutral Territories: We had all neutral territories occupied by 100 point armies decided at the time of attack by the player controlling the defending army, and neutral homelands occupied by a 400 point army of units belonging only to that general. The one rule we applied to these armies is that they cannot contain any unique squads, to give some more diversity to the small fights. Most of the fights against neutral territories have been only a 20-100 point advantage in favor of the player, so they can usually be a challenge and have inflicted some casualties on player armies, plus it lets everyone involved play more Heroscape.

• Persistence: In addition to permanent loss of units, we have been tracking wounds on uncommon and unique heroes following battles for the duration of the round on our army tracking spreadsheet and healing them up at the end of each round. This allows losses where the attacker inflicted some damage on the defender but didn’t fully eliminate tough heroes to have an impact and has incentivized putting more thought into backing up battle lines to be able to move injured heroes out of the way of a later attack. All squads have their units restored after each battle, though, as it was too much bookkeeping for us to keep track of how many was lost from each common squad.

I think that covers most everything – hopefully someone is interested in this, and I’m happy to answer any questions people have about my group’s gameplay if it would help anyone else try this. Thanks to everyone who worked to get this project to where it is up to this point – you created something really fun to play and I’m really glad I found this thread.

Cheers!

Re: RiSkape: HeroScape / Risk mashup

Whoa, that sounds like loads of fun, @SharkRider !

I have actually played a couple games of something closer to the basic rules laid out in the post here in the last year or so, but those were way simpler than this masterpiece you've laid out and only had two or three players so we didn't feel bad about doing Risk battles against the neutrals.

Re: RiSkape: HeroScape / Risk mashup

@Dr.Goomonkey Thanks! It's been a blast so far, which is why I figured I'd post what we'd come up with in case anyone else wanted to give it a shot! I was really impressed with all the brainstorming you all had done to come up with this - the whole gameplay is really impressively put together.

We had contemplated just doing risk battles against the neutral territories when we were setting it up, using the heroscape dice variant to keep the theme, but it ended up being a lot of fun challenging each other to see how long we could last with a 100 point army, and ended up with some fairly creative setups.
