A brief intro
I have been a fan of Drizzt board game (and books) long before buying it. And I am so happy to see how much this game has been supported by fans up until now.
After the apparent demise of Warhammer Quest ACG, my girlfriend and me will get deeper into LoD as both are big fans of R. A. Salvatore books thus I am wondering how much interest there would be in “updating” the heroes.
I think they did a great job in representing the main characters up to the book Gauntlygrym but I would be particularly happy if the heroes would be updated since:
- It would give the game more variability
- The updated/new heroes in the books are really cool !!
Then of course it would be nice to see additional adventures setteled after Gauntlygrym (Snow outdoor tiles and orcs ??) but I prefer to focus on the heroes now.
In short, the proposed heroes
- http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Catti-brie]Catti-brieC..., Mielikki Fire Wizard. Suggestions: Mielikki’s Chosen (At-Will Power, healing), Fire Stream (At-Will Power), Ring of Fire (Utility Power, protection), Call Lighting (Daily Power)
- http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Regis, Rogue. Suggestions: Ebonsoul’s Dagger (At-Will Power), Magical Rapier (At-Will Power) Crossbow of Poisoning (At-Will Power), Defensive Grid (Utility Power), Potion of Enlargement (Utility Power), Beret of Disguise (Utility Power), Oil of Impact (Daily Power), Specter of Ebonsoul (Daily Power, evocation)
Possible new heroes:
- http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Ambergris, Female Dwarf Cleric. Suggestions: Mace (At-Will Power), Merciful Death (Daily Power, attack), Water Geyser (Daily Power)
- http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Afafrenfere, Human Monk
The others characters are more or less ok as they are now although some of them have lost some powerful items in the meanwhile (Wulfgar in particular could be downgraded).
Possible sources for the development
In case you are interested on:
- Background of the heroes. Look at the “Skills” and “Equipment” sections in the related heroes webpages on http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com
- Existing Powers in D&D games. Dungeon and Dragons board games
wiki http://ddadventuresystem.wikia.com/wiki/D%26D%C2%AE_Adventur..., listing the already existing Powers per Type and Class
- Possible New Powers. D&D wikia, for Catti-Brie for example the fire spells on http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/SRD:Fire_Effect
- Designing the cards. I suppose there is no better reference than GeckoTH's D&D Template Repository !!
Your contribution is crucial !!
I would be glad to have your opinions and your suggestions about the proposed heroes. With your feedbacks I would eventually be able to elaborate it further.
However I would be happier if some good willing and more experienced LoD gamers would take over and develop further the heroes. As fan of R.A.Salvatore I have already appreciated what has already been done for Cadderly, Pwent and Pikel.
Of course an official WotC expansion would be also a no-brain purchase for my group !!
I wish to thank you in advance for your contribution to the thread,
