The Dastardly Dungeon Doings of Danzig The Desecrator
A Heroquest Battle Report
The first game at Oldhammer Day 2015 saw me and DeathJester gleefully descend into a nefarious dungeon of AirborneGrove’s design using his custom Heroquest board and some very excellent house rules, custom spells, and treasures. As if you needed more proof that heroquest is still one of the greatest games ever created.
Now, when I was a kid I normally chose the Elf as my go-to adventurer. I though the Elf was a well-rounded character and was generally a pretty good guy. Well….. no such thing this time. This time, I chose the wimpy wizard but used a Dark Elf wizard from my collection. His name….. is Danzig, Danzig The Desecrator. Good ol’ mister Airborne, being the gentleman that he is, allowed me to pick two spell decks provided that I reduce Danzig to one attack and one defense die, making him extremely wimpy. BUT NO MATTER! I chose the Chaos spell deck and the Necromancy spell deck (which included some customer spells). With that selection we were off to the races….
Doyle and Danzig dauntlessly delved downwards into the depths of the dark and dank dungeon…
Judging by the size of the dungeon and the very distinct smell of troll in the stale air, Danzig conjured a cohort undead minions in case they ran into more trouble than they could handle. The fickle chaos god toying with Danzig’s fate rolled a 6 on a D6 and chuckled with glee as Danzig was allowed to summon forth two mummies and two zombies. WHAT FORTUNE!
Danzig paused momentarily to shake his head at the tremendous run-on sentence his antics inspired.
