Folks I game with adhere to the bolded text above. I have heard of a few tourneys in the Lawton area in which even repaints aren't excepted, but this seems to have been isolated to a specific tournament director(s). Personally, I think repaints are awesome. I certainly have done a few of my own!

Hey, I realize that this seems stupid (because it is) but I'll ask anyway. How does one edit the title of a thread they've created. I wish to update a title. Quick response greatly appreciated.

Don't know about HCC, but MSE will work on Windows 7. Pretty sure I've used VirtualScape on my Windows 7 computer at home.

Edit: Yes, VirtualScape runs on my Windows 7 computer.

Semi-official rulings - it has been officially decided that if a Wyvern lands purposefully on a lava space, any figure it uses Talon Grab to transport may also be put into an adjacent lava space, and in VERY LIKELY chance will die instantly (along with the Wyvern). This could possibly be a good tactic for removing ultra-high cost heroes in a suicide attack in the rare occasion that both your Wyvern and your opponent's figure are within 7 spaces of lava.
Are you allowed to just land on a land space adjacent to a molten lava space and drop them there because of what I've asked before water, lava, swamp, ice, are not level 0 they are considered level 1. Same with the terrain spaces beside it (if not stacked upon). So couldn't you just drop them in the lava without risking yourself, too?

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Zero height tiles are same level as the tiles they are "stacked on". On the first level of a map, any water or lava tiles are a level lower than the tiles around them. If you have to step up from a water or lava tile, they are not same level. Most map makers prefer to surround lava and water with regular terrain, always making them lower than the terrain around them. They do not feel it is aestheticly pleasing otherwise. Hope this makes sense. Posting from my phone at work.

If you are just looking to get into Scape, I have plenty of terrain to get you started!

See Xraine's post but I think you'll find the official rules state that zero level tiles must be stacked on another tile and therefor the minimum level they can be on is level 1.

Not that I've ever followed that rule - most of my zero level tiles are on the table at level zero.

You should try a volcanic erruption map in which the first player to use their third turn gets to add a lava tile to an existing lava tile each round. Depending on the map it can really add to the strategy of the games.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.
