Yep, an exclusive, one-time-only LEGO promo. :sweet:

Oh it's a geo caching thing, I get it now, thanks.

I got super excited until I realized it was only in the LEGO universe game :tongue:

No, it was a real-world event done to promote the game; seven LEGO-related locations we were chosen, and the first person there who spoke to the official won the prize--thus, why I have a unique real minifig face for my character. :wink:

I think Pretzel's head has been used surprisingly infrequently in Heroica considering how it appeared in quite a number of sets.

I actually really like the head, and Pretzel hardly does it justice...perhaps a more kindly monk. :tongue:

We get the odd Haldor lookalike now and again, perhaps his father was a bit of a goer back in the day.

Regarding the maps, I'm with Bricksandparts in that I prefer the non-colored or very subtly-colored map, though for a different reason. I don't really think the colored maps make it look like things are too explored, but I think they're a little harder to read, and I like the somewhat more authentic look of the Photoshopped parchment background.

That's sweet! I wish I would have known about it!

Interesting perspective. I can make it the same style as the original map, if that is what people prefer. I see what your saying, but I probably wont change it to the other style unless Sandy states a preference.

Your map looks beautiful, but I agree with Brickdoctor - the old map is clearer and more in-line with the general aesthetic theme of the game.

There's really no point in you making a similar map, though. But if you stick around and get deeper into the game, you can host quests in yet unexplored realms and make maps for them all by yourself. :wink:

Alright, I actually already did though :tongue: I just had to switch a few colors around, took like 10 minutes. Here it is if you want it. If not, that's fine too.

I think that one is the best of them, it really captures the feel of an old parchment map.

You will receive the normal free hit damage, I think. All the free hits added up, minus your defence.

:sceptic: If that's the case, I think players should discuss it, because it doesn't seem to make sense. If you are hastened, you'd be able to block more hits, so I think the damage taken should be the sum of the incoming damage minus 2 times the defenses. Any thoughts?

Sandy did make a ruling on this specific case, but I can't remember what his decision was on it. You could argue for either one really.

I feel like a total idiot. I thought Sandy was a girl. I think the name and the kitten icons threw me off. :tongue:

Don't worry. There was a point where we all had a discussion about it :tongue:. Actually I know his identity by accident, but if I told you, I'm afraid I'd have to kill you... :laugh: No seriously though. :look:

Don't worry, we all went through that. And by all I'm not exaggerating...

Wonder when your avatar will be something else other than a critter or a woman, Sandy. :tongue:

This game really makes you view player's gender as their character's gender... Now once we get a level 50 hero that can have 2 characters things will get interesting :tongue:

No one has reached 50 yet? I've noticed a few in the high 30s, is that the highest?

I considered using a troll for my character, but I wasn't sure if that was allowed!

I might change my character up since I am yet to actually use him. He seems rather generic as of now; simple but stealthy ranger.

Keep playing and I'm sure you can fins the perfect secondary character. You're doing great role-playing so far, keep it up! :thumbup:

Nope! This game's gone on for about three years, and we're jut now getting to the 30's. Of course, some players joined later than others (like myself!), so it depends on the quests you go on and how frequent you play. :classic:

We've got an ogre. Trolls would be doable, but tricky. You'd have to make him not some lumbering brute and an actual character.

I personally have a bit of a distaste for scrapping a character this early. We've got enough stealthy rangers around here, but the important thing is this: they all moved past that trope. If you want your character to stand out, it's how he acts and what he says, not his race or the parts you use or his class, although they do help slightly. :thumbup:
