The latest beta release from 2 days ago does fix the campaign phase bug, which put the project to a hold. I will revisit the conversion once the official 1.7 release is out.

Oh no! That's a pity!! I just found Descent & Valkyrie. How much effort it approximately takes to convert one quest?

With the old version of Valkyrie that I used I would estimate that it took me more than 8 hours per encounter including a bit of play testing. I guess it is a lot quicker now with the new editor.

That's good news as I just started toying with the editor and it's tough to work with.

The Egg Thieves, Part I: To Steal a Dragon

Click 'run', go to %appdata%, then your Valkyrie subfolder.

Create a new folder (EditorQuestX) and place the Quest.ini file into that folder.

Run Valkyrie and play the quest! Recommended for 4 heroes.

I still need to playtest this some more for less than 4 heroes, but it should work. I plan on adding at least 1-2 more quests in this series.

Please let me know if you find any bugs/problems. Content-wise, its finished, it just needs some polish and text editing.

EDIT: Updated quest text and formatting



Any chance you have an updated version of this? Won't load with current version. Thanks

Anyway to update the tutorial? Trying to follow it but once I get to Trigger SpawnCave from EventPlaceTile it doesn't make sense. Looks like maybe an update made the guide out of date? Anyway would love to start creating my own Quests but I'm having a hard time understanding the quest editor.

The MoM documentation is more complete, though some of it doesn't apply have a look at this:

In theory: yes.

We have started to convert the Shadow Rune campaign some time ago and managed to complete three quests. Those are included in Valkyrie.
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1754892/shadow-rune-project

However, we had to stop conversion due to time constraints and lack of interest/feedback of the community. I am happy to support anybody who would like to pick up this project again.


I'd like to see about continuing this project. It may be more then I can handle but I think it would be fun to try. I downloaded the quest files from "https://descent-community.org/index.php/fan-projects-fan-content/the-shadow-rune-project/" but can't access them. Probably because these were done on 0.8.7 and it's currently 1.6.1. Anyway if possible it would be nice to find a way I can edit the current files.

The "A Fat Goblin" quest gets to a certain point (First round when the garden is shown) and then ends the quest and goes back to the menu. The "Cardinals Plight" quest also has some issues with buttons and spawns. I know you have moved on from this project but I'd love to see about trying to fix them myself if possible. Thanks!

I guess there have been many changes to Valkyrie in the meantime and the old commands might no longer work.

The files that you can download from descent-community.org might not be the last versions of the quests. At some point we sent the files to BruceGL to be included in Valkyrie directly.

I just checked and found that BruceGL ported the first quest that Delphi and I made (First Blood) to the current version of Valkyrie. Maybe he has a way of porting the other quests, too?

As far as I remember Fat Goblin (made by Delphi) was actually completed. Cardinal's Plight (made by rdh174) encounter 1 was complete, encounter 2 needed some more work. I also finished encounter 1 of Castle Daerion and started working on encounter 2. I will sent you the files.

Yes, encounter 1 of Cardinal's Plight seemed fine it was the second encounter that had the issues. First Blood ran fine as well. Thanks and I look forward to the files and continuing this amazing work.

First Blood, A Fat Goblin, Castle Daerion and The Cardinal's Plight are all available for download directly within Valkyrie.

If anyone has old files they want to work, this is the important reference:

https://github.com/NPBruce/valkyrie/wiki/QuestFormat

Anything saved before version 0.9 won't work in the current versions, but will work in 1.3 available here:

https://github.com/NPBruce/valkyrie/releases/tag/release%2F1...

Just reopening and saving will update it to format 6, after which it will work in all newer versions.

Hello Charles,

I recently noticed the problem with "A Fat Goblin" myself, when I ran it on the 1.7 beta release. I plan to update (and partially redesign) this quest once the 1.7 stable release is out.

My guess is that either something went wrong due to file format changes when converting the quest up from it's 0.8 version or I did screw up somewhere. This might be the liklier case, but before the quest was published I ran extensive tests and didn't experience the problem then.

That is way easier then how I was going about it which required lots of data entry and a little tweaking. Thanks for this! Saved me hours of work!

That's great news! I won't touch it then. It's better off in your hands anyway. I'll start on some other quests. Thanks for picking this back up!

The Shadow Vault - Interlude I quest is complete. I'd love it if I could get some people to test it out. I am working on Death On The Wing next. Once I have that done I'll post it as well for people to test. Hopefully we can get all of The Shadow Rune completed for a full campaign.

The Shadow Vault
https://www.dropbox.com/s/s2r9owt1g31zqgs/07_TheShadowVault....
Please let me know of any bug or corrections that need to be made. Thanks!

P.S. If you have done other quests for The Shadow Rune please let me know so we can collaborate.

UPDATE: Death On The Wing is complete! Not sure what I will work on next but I'll post it when I finish.

UPDATE: The Masquerade Ball is complete. Working on finishing all of ACT I quests. I will post them as they are completed. These all need to be tested and polished before having NPBruce add them to the download list on D2E Valkyrie. If you are willing to test please do so as that will help out a lot. This is hours of work to create these and testing is best done by others for fresh eyes.

Thank you! I just updated them last night to fix some issues with monster actions, mechanics and other minor issues. If you find some time download them again for the newer versions. Thanks for checking them out! It's a huge help!

Giving it a look now..Have everything in content folder..I notice Masquerade ball isn't showing up in start quest list..

Death on the wing worked great, flawless from what i can tell.

Will edit as i'm able to give each quest a test run.

Thanks! This is a great help! I didn't fix the .zip files to work so if they are still in the zip file it wont show up. I think there is some trick to allow .zip files to work but I can't remember. Try to unzip the file and that should help. Thanks again!

Actually that is the default action when it comes to zip files..They were already unzipped and placed in the content folder..I'll try the opposite and just put the zip files in and see how it works it, merely for curiosity sake..

Edit: negative, masquerade ball is still a no show.

I think I know why. Try putting them in your Valkyrie folder in appdata. In windows search type in %appdata%. Look for Valkyrie and open that up. Place the file in there. Should be something like C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Valkyrie or mine is C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming\Valkyrie.
