I was looking up on articles for Lords of underearth and came across one I didn't know about or ever saw mentioned. There is supposed to be an article in Interplay Magazine issue No. 2 that has the designer talking about the scenario notes for the game. I was wondering if anyone had this? Seems like an interesting read.

Anyone have it? Is it interesting? What do they mean by "Scenario notes" exactly? Is it like design notes specifically for each scenario that the creator came up with?

I already have the Errata and designer notes from Space gamer magazine which is pretty good.

Thanks.

That's right, the author states: "Each scenario represents an event in Underearth's 'history'. Each is a tactical situation which is completely different from any other scenario."

Then follows two pages of notes which introduce and discuss strategies for each scenario in further detail.

The article ends by noting that other scenarios were developed and play-tested but dropped from the final release (such as a multi-player assault on a strong, prepared Dwarf defense).

Unfortunately no additional scenarios are included but a table of stats for about 10 new unit counters are given (covering companies of elves and various monster types).

Any possibility of posting this here? I'm re-doing the map and counters, and want to make a set of these new units to complete the gameset.

Thanks!

Did the article happen to list a point cost for the new units?
