Homebrew scenarios now available

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have just released Valkyrie 1.0 here:
https://github.com/NPBruce/valkyrie/wiki

Valkyrie is an alternative to the official app which allows for creation and playing of user created scenarios. Right now there are two scenarios available:

The Fall of House Lynch
This is a faithful recreation of the Mansions of Madness First Edition classic. Requires The First Edition core box or Recurring Nightmares Figure and Tile Collection.

Available in English and German.

Exotic Materials
A collector of rare metals tracked a meteorite which fell near the town of Rowley. On visiting the town she found the locals to be very unhelpful and slightly disturbing, and has tasked you with finding and retrieving the meteorite. What dark secrets await you in Rowley?

Available in English and Spanish. Edit: and German

Enjoy!

Thanks. :wub:  -  Diving into Exotic Materials right now.

A little bug: I had no ad. content selected, yet when I started the scenario, it told me to start with the Arcane Insight spell from the Beyond the Threshold Expansion, which I obviously should not get.

Thank you Bruce, you cant imagine how happy im after that news!
This is the only way to make MoM great! Is an amazing game and FFG can see that, im sure about it... and user content can make it shine more than ever! Official and user content can co-exist without problems, because a player want to play... simple as that, and have a wide choice of scenarios.
Cant wait to see what happens next!

Congrats on the 1.0! I'm getting close to wrapping up my first scenario.

This is probably because that is a text based entry, not a selection based stop. This is something that can be easily fixed. Either by using the scenario editor and looking for the Event, I believe that it's one of the GetItem events, or if BruceLGL does an update.

I think that this is going to be fun for everyone to have a chance to be creative!

THIS! oh... what a cool thing... i cant wait to take a look to your first scenario, and maybe put some effort into design one myself (too bad for the double problem of programming level and language... lol)

Currently supports English, Spanish, French, Italian and German.  Valkyrie itself should be fully translated but the editor documentation is only in English.  Happy to accept help for other languages and/or documentation translation.

Bruce, this is fantastic! I am amazed at the lack of replies here.

Question - how do we share the scenarios we make? And where are the scenario files kept? I'm worried I will build some, then update the program and lose the files! Can I back them up somewhere?

This should answer your questions:

https://github.com/NPBruce/valkyrie/wiki/QuestPublish

Newer versions of Valkyrie should be able to read older scenarios (at least the previous version) and can be resaved to update - backup before you do this.  I like to work with my scenarios in version control, but if you aren't familiar with that you can use any file management system you like.

Is there a way to use the editor to add additional monsters to the current scenarios?  I own additional Arkham Horror miniatures and would love to include them in the game.  It would actually make me want to buy more miniatures.

I think the best way this could work is under the "My Collection" menu where you choose which expansions you own, there would be a menu for additional monsters.  You would then have a full list of monsters from FFG that you can select individually if you own them and will randomly spawn in your games.

You can add custom monsters to your own scenarios and you can create your own expansions that will add to the available monsters (or any other additional content).  Note that this will only work if the scenario is written to allow random monsters within certain criteria.  Note that it will also require writing evade, horror and monster attack text for any new monsters.

I want to help translate the adventures into Portuguese, the game was released a few days in Brazil and the adventures of the app have been translated, less to What lies within, but to other made by players not yet. So if you can help please let me know.

Thanks for the program and initiative!

If you don't want to use github just save that file, edit, and send to me.  This is for general Valkyrie text.
 
For scenarios you can use the 'Copy' function in the editor.  Then in %AppData%/Valkrie there will be a EditorScenario directory with Localization files for each language.  Just copy one and translate.
 

I am happy to accept translations for "Exotic Materials" and "The Fall of House Lynch".  "The Truth" isn't mine, please contact slycozzolino:

Hey Bruce thanks 4 your answer. I will started to translate and send to you (just because I have fear to mess with something in GITHUB). 
And I will talk with Slycozzolino about it. :)

Hey Sanscouer,

You can access my localization file here:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NPBruce/valkyrie-questdata/master/source/MoM/TheTruth/Localization.English.txt

You can send your file back to me through FFG/Asmodee site so you don't have to create a GitHub profile if you don't plan to set it up.

 

Bruce,

Correct me if i am wrong on this or there is a better way, but Sanscouer should be able to just copy the scenarios in the editor and place the new localization file in its folder to test it. Once you are done you could send file out to be merged and delete your copy.

I've been following this forum for a while now as well as your project.

Really good job Bruce, haven't been able to actually use it for a game but I blame the good weather for that :P

"The Truth" - iI missed that scenario or not just release yet?

 

Anyway, love The Fall of House Lynch scenario. Totally faithful to the original.
