The official Heroes for Dungeonquest expansion is not a good expansion. It's really that simple. Below, 7 characters are presented for use with Dungeonquest. 4 of them are based on the heroes from the basic set, but have been boosted a little with special abilities to improve their survivability. The remaining 3 are based on the few useful ideas from Heroes for Dungeonquest.
Sir Rohan the Knight
|Strength: 6||Sir Rohan is skilled in the art of combat. When you choose Mighty Blow against a monsters Slash, the monster loses 1 additional LP.||19||18||17||16||15|
Volrik Braveheart the Adventurer
|Strength: 6||Volrik has no special abilities beyond his excellent stat line.||15||14||13||12|
Ulf Grimhand the Barbarian
|Strength: 7||Ulf is a hard drinker. Whenever you drink a potion,
you may add 2 to the die roll.
Ulf can go berserk! At any point during your turn, you may spend 1 LP to increase your Strength to 11 for the rest of the turn.
El-Adoran Sureshot the Ranger
|Strength: 3||El-Adoran begins the game with a crossbow and 4
arrows. You may fire 1 arrow at a monster before choosing your combat reaction. You may
also fire 1 arrow after seeing the monsters reaction.
Roll a d6 and consult the table on the board. If you get a wounded result, the monster loses d6 LP's. On a killed result the monster dies - except a champion of chaos which is only wounded.
Felix Mandrake the Thief
|Strength: 3||When searching a room you may draw 2 search cards,
but if so - both cards apply.
Treat all Door Jammed Shut cards as Door Opens instead.
If you attempt to escape from combat, you don't have to leave the room. If you get caught and slashed, you lose 2 LP less than normal.
Taal Strongbranch the Druid
|Strength: 6||You may tap into the power of nature. Miss 1 turn,
and take 2 extra LP's. This may not take you above your starting LP's.
If you encounter a Giant Spider you do not have to fight it - instead take it as a follower. You may then spend the giant spider card later, to prevent losing 1 LP.
Nicholas Flammel the Wizard
|Strength: 1||You begin the game with 5 mana points and 5 spells.||13||12||11||10||9|
