Greetings fellow 'scapers!

I've just had a file upload approved here:

https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/123499/heroscape-general-...

This is not so much a variant of actual game play, but rather an interesting way to choose armies, starting zones, etc.

Inspired by (read: directly ripped off of) the system of choosing armies in Risk Legacy, this allows players to draft a particular general, point value, starting zone, and bonus ability prior to the game.

Print out the two page file, cut out the cards, and draft away. Each player will build an army from one particular general. Obviously Aquilla has a lot fewer options than Utgar, but taking Utgar first may mean you end up with a lot fewer points or a less than ideal starting zone.

This system allows for anywhere from 2-6 players on any map, even if it is not symmetrical, so long as there is at least one starting zone per player.

Feedback is welcomed, thanks!
