Hi,

i have a question about first scenario. I really dont know how can overlord win. Rules say that he can escape with archers through exit. And when he scapes with 5 of them he wins. But how can he win like this when he have only 3 archers in two player game ? etc ? Rules doesnt say what happens to monsters walking off the map … nor the quest guide :(

 

thanks

Each quest lists Reinforcements that the Overlord may play.  Check your quest guide and rulebook on Reinforcements.  In the first quest the overlord is allowed to add one goblin to the map at the end of each turn, respecting group limits.

oh … im blind, but still its nearly impossible to win this as overlord … we tried it many times, but still… when OL successfully escapes with 2-3 archers he has no monsters to fight with … also they are quite fregile to make it through … dont know … i knew it is hard to win for OL but not this much hard.

In some games, i manage to knock down heroes many times … but never the warrior / knight. He is impossible to knock down. Mostly only get him down to 9 lives … ridiculous. Shield is imbalanced. Dont like it…

First Blood is seriously balanced on the side of the heroes.  Don't worry about that.  There's no special reward for either side winning so it really doesn't matter.

well it says future quest will reward winner of this quest … so … not so much …

also … i would like to present the game to other people and since they dont want to play OL i will have to commit to his "doomed" role.

I've had the OL win two, very close, 2-hero games.  It basically came down to one die roll -- the Ettin managed to survive the heroes' attacks with one or more Health, and the last Dash & Scamper goblin reinforcement made it off the board.  God(s) does play dice in this world.

I'm afraid you've misunderstood.  "Future quests will grant bonus gold or XP, or perhaps other rewards, to the winner of the quest" is not saying that a future quest will reward the winner of First Blood.  It's saying that winners of future quests will be reward for winning those quests.  No quest refers back to the winner of First Blood.

I've accepted that I will likely never win First Blood as Overlord.  Doesn't bother me.  Especially as an introduction to new people.  Presenting the game to other people isn't about beating them, it's about getting the feet wet and making them want more.  And that's best done by showing them they can win.

Then they move onto the next quest and the real challenge starts.
