Is anybody working on some kind of tool helping with scenario creation? Something where you click which expansions you have, select map, choose enemy cards into river and then drag/drop tokens to map. Probably similar to Descent Quest Vault (https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/01/14/cardboard-childr...), just simplier, as there are no tiles to compose.

Obviously, there would be an issue of rights for images (especially maps, rest could be custom made), but that might be an issue even when doing manual pdfs with scenarios...

I'm trying to put something together in javascript, but don't want to waste too much time if somebody is already working on that.

According to update 66 from Feb 5, 2015, Monolith is making one. Here's a quote:


"...What is this website I speak of? Well it’s simple enough: We know just how important a community is to a game like this. Some of the veterans amongst you will know that games like Heroquest have lived on for years thanks to the hard work and dedication of their fan base. Well, here at Monolith, we don’t want to wait years for this to happen, we want to give you the tools needed to make your own scenarios and share them with the community NOW.

Monolith is going to create a community website that will allow you to do just that. Aside from standard features such as forums and the like, we will also be developing a comprehensive scenario template system that will allow you to create your own adventures and have them automatically set out like the examples given above! Save them, print them, share them with the world."

Thanks - I was looking for something like that.

They also promised us 100 scenarios available at the time game is published in same update, so it should be probably taken with a grain of salt , but let's wait and see.

Too bad that was 18 months ago, somehow companies' "now" is different from a private person's definition of "now".

Let's cross fingers that Monolith just got busy with fulfilling the order and is able to work on their website, the scenarios and the companions app soon.

the interesting question in that context is if they want all of the community produced scenarios go through their yet to be released tool.
In the end, it ties back to the question of image rights as they could control it through the tool.
The other option for them would be to release an additional image pack for the specific purpose.
That is, if they are interested in a halfway uniform look of the community produced stuff.
