HeroQuest on Discord?

Thanks Richard. I'm in the very early stages, and for now just thinking out loud about what can be done. I have run a voice chat game of Forbidden Lands on discord, and it was surprisingly much like a table game, so that's what I'm aiming for. PbP is a bit too slow for me.

I just got into discord. I have the Hero Quest board game with a few of the expansion packs. If be interested in playing this if you have a group. 

FYI HeroQuest the RPG and HeroQuest the board game are unrelated.

It worked decently enough. I took a RQ scenario of the Jonstown Compendium, and played it narratively. It did expose some problems with the scenario, and the usual problem with how to introduce newbies to a deep setting like Glorantha. But QW worked fine. I do think the different options for Contests in the SRD definitely needs to be edited, polished and developed in a product based on the text. But, as it's a SRD it is a reference text. I do wonder still how the system sits between task and conflict resolution, and the xp system feel wonky.

I would love to see more people try it out, and talk about it. This part of the forums is a bit lonely for those of us who don't like RQ that much.

I also have this wish (and this hope), HQ/QW is really an amazing system, it would deserve more publicity to get more players... I hope this changes with the future release of the Questworlds Core Book (fingers crossed here...)
