Couple of questions regarding ranged attacks when including elevation,

1. Should melee attacks be possible if the elevation difference is greater than 1? My thinking is that the elevation difference would put melee weapons out of range.
2. When there is a large elevation disparity, especially when using the Cryptoliths, should there be a range penalty for weapons when firing uphill? I would think that a range penalty of 1 for every 2 (maybe 3) elevation difference when firing up hill.

1. Melee is in range until the difference in height is greater than the attacking figure's height. A size 6 creature can't attack a space next to it that is 7 high.

2. Height gives an advantage to attacking characters only.

You can houserule anything you like, but this (as Heroscape) was a game designed mostly for kids, so the rules benefit from being very simple.

One minor correction above.
