1ST AND ESSENTIAL VARIANT - ALTERNATE ACTIVATION
per increasing agility (from 1+ to 6+).
ie : Rune Heroe, then adversary group 1, then heroe 2, adversary group 2, and so on… (companion is the last heroe)

CHALLENGING VARIANT 2 - LIMIT HEALING ACTION PER QUEST
from 1+, 2+… up to 6+ Difficulty increases until the end of the quest for each piece of talisman.

3 DWELVING VARIANT - NEW SEARCH TREASURE ACTION
Each room has got only 1 treasure. You may spend an action to search it if the room has no monsters, rolling 4+ on a D6.

4 RALLY PHASE VARIANT - CUSTOM RESPIT
respit when no adversary on board - unless it's the second round with no adversary : in that case unexpected event (D66 aventure guide - ).
You may :
a) first, replace heroes in the actual room.
b) then, exchange treasures.
c) finally, each heroe may search the room's treasure or heal D3 wounds while rolling 4+ on D6 (no risk, ambush is based on destiny dice)

5 TRICKS OR TREATS - ADD CUSTOM DESTINY DICE CONSEQUENCES
Add those consequences to the table :
a) double or more 1 = heal 1 wound per 1 after the first.
b) No die cancelled (ie 2,3,4,5,6 or 1,2,4,5,6, etc) = ambush.

ETC...
- treasure cards limit : no more than your Agility.
- Skill cards limit : no more than your Save.
- d20 style's Line of sight : may draw a line from a corner of the square to another square with no wall or obstacle (a miniature doesn't block it).
- cover : +1 to the result of the Save roll if you can't see the whole target square from the point where you drew the line of signt. toute la case de la cible.

1st rule is short and sweet and adds a lot to the dynamic. Nice.

Yes alternate activation add a lot of fun, letting the monsters play before being slayed

Alternate activation is cool, I'll try that next time. (Rune Hero always act first even if he hasn't 1+ agility?)

What's your opinion when an unexpected event doesn't spawn monsters? It reset the respite counter? Or count as a blank adversary phase so the third round with no adversary on board trigger another unexpected event?

Unexpected event reset the counter by raw yes.

Tried the initiative portion of the variant. Very good change. I went insofar as to make the initiative continue into the Runemarked players turn (leaving the Runemarked player with dice on his card if need be). Had a cocky Lord of the Plagues explore ahead only to have a pair of initiative 1 screemers fly over our heads and slash us to pieces. Lots of unlucky rolls later, 2 Heroes on the verge of death. The battle back, very fun.

Have to say, the alternate turns, limited healing actions, and new adversary tables have saved this game for me!

Question though, if you have more adversary groups than heroes. Do you keep alternating or do you play the remaining adversary groups at the end?

E.g.

Runemarked hero,
Pink horror,
Hero,
Blue horror,
Grots,
Brimstone horrors.

Thanks!

HI ! Glad I saved your fun too ! that's nice.

Every heroe only play once per turn. So if there's more monsters than heroes, monster keep activating without alternate heroes once heroes have been activated.

Cheers.

Thanks! Yeah that's how i've been playing it and it works well. The difficulty is punishing though, my last four trials with a Slaughterpriest and Lord of Plagues are 3-1 to Tzeentch.

I'm curious whether GW will create a new and improved Spawning table to include the new adversaries? If not, maybe we could replace some of the 'Unexpected events' on a roll of 2-3 with the new adversaries?
