Prep in Progress; Chapter 37, Part 1

 

The Prep in Progress entries are short summaries of my prep for my on-going campaign The Tales of the Hero Wars.

 

The highlights of Saturday’s HeroQuest Session for me were the quirky way that Ascanius runs his ship, yet more dangerous side-effects from Ragnarr’s magic and the speed with which the Heroes beat off the Giant Octopus attack.  I was pleased to play out so much of the Dark Skuld that I held, as otherwise I am forced to discard it which rather defeats the purpose of having them.  Few of these evil Intrusions made much of an impact on the game, so I do not feel that the Players were too inconvenienced by them.

Moving forward, I have a lot to do to prepare the island of Karn’lothra for the arrival of the Heroes.  I am working through the published sources, and pulling together the notes for me to run the story.  As is so often the case with using a published location, there are likely to be a lot of pages printed out, but the conversion of published materials still seems to be good value at the table in terms of GM input required in preparation.

 

Happy Gaming!
