New Rules:


Armory Cards armoryth

Here they are! The Armory Cards replace the US Armory Sheet, UK Equipment Cards and the Alchemy Shops found in the HeroQuest expansions. The Armory Cards Set contains 70 cards and new rules for the use of the Armory Cards. The cards include items from both the US and UK HeroQuest games plus 11 all new items for the Heroes to purchase! The cards include artwork by Ron Shirtz, original artwork by Michael Kelly, which includes color versions of the potion bottles from the HeroQuest expansion Quest books, and the artwork used on the US Armory Sheet. Included are instructions for availability and suggestions for use with Brad (Cyber 333) Boruch’s “HeroQuest City”!

I have split the Armory Cards PDF file into three separate PDF Booklets to resolve problems that had occurred with the download/upload of the file in the past.

Locks and Lock Picking lockth

This is a rule system for locks and lock picking in HeroQuest. I originally conceived this system years ago for a game set called Melee and Wizard (anyone remember those from MicroGames/Steve Jackson?). I have redone them for use in HeroQuest. Like Melee and Wizard before it HeroQuest was missing my favorite character class the Thief! What fun is it if you can't break in to something while adventuring?

QuestMaker Color

QuestMaker Color is a Quest design utility for use with HeroQuest and other map/tile RPGs. QuestMaker Color uses Microsoft Excel. So Excel, or perhaps another spreadsheet program, is required to use it. I created QuestMaker Color after an idea by Ray Bordier, his original QuestMaker is available for download on Dewayne Agin’s HeroQuest website. The new QuestMaker Color expands on Ray Bordier’s original concept by adding full color tiles from all of the official HeroQuest Quests. The Hero (17) and Monster (99) icons have been reconstructed in 2 color shades, a single shade of maroon for the Heroes and a single shade of green for the Monsters. The Excel spreadsheet's grid has been resized to simulate graph paper (as close as possible to square in Excel, row height is 19 and column width is 2.33). All of the tiles have been meticulously resized to line up with in these measurements allowing a full color image of your HeroQuest dungeon to be shown/printed. All of the tiles/icons have been inserted into the Excel workbooks in such a way as to allow Morcar/Zargon to position and/or rotate each of the tiles at will. So if you want to design a dungeon where some rooms are at a 45 degree angle ... Go for it! Hope you enjoy this!
