We're playing 4 hero campaign (All first timers), all are pretty decent players.
Due to some bad luck, Act I got out of control for me as Overlord.
We are playing with house rule - loser chooses next quest.
First Blood - naturally lost.
Fat Goblin - won as overlord.
Death of the Wing - won as overlord.
The Masquerade Ball - lost, and the problems started.
Overlord Revealed - Lost due to inexperience (bad monster placement - 2 runelocks closed on first turn.)
Now I have to choose first Act II quest.
I wanted to ask, which 2 Act II quests would favor overlord at least a little.
(Available are Frozen Spire, Desecrated Tomb, The Ritual of Shadows, Blood of Heroes, The Wyrm Rises)
Heroes will for sure pick Blood of Heroes, if I win the first quest, and as I understand, it's impossible to win as Overlord.
I want your advice, which quests should I pick as 1st and 3rd?
(Heroes consist of Necromancer Thara (Shadow Rune); Spiritspeaker Avric; Knight Syndrael; Thief Jain.)
Thanks for any help!
