Z changed her mind about playing Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel and decided that she wanted to play HeroQuest today. She plays the dwarf, but pretends she's a hobbit. I play the elf. We used the female figures that I painted back in my youth, and still keep in their special box. Al was the DM. We played the second mission. Since we were playing only two characters, Al declared a special sale at the equipment shop - 2 shields and 2 helmets for exactly the amount of gold that we had earned from the first mission. Z gets a little flipped out about losing hit points, so the extra defense is a good thing. Al always adjusts the game to keep Z's character alive during the game so that she doesn't freak out, however she doesn't realize this, so the game is always tense for her. It was a lot of fun. Z found a broadsword early on, and happily slashed her way through the monsters. At one point, I used the walk through rock spell to move into an adjacent room while Z kept the monsters busy up front. I kicked in the back door and dealt two swift blows to the chaos warrior on the other side. Z thought that was so cool that she had to act that bit out a couple of times using the living room door before we could continue. We completed the mission and returned with a pile of treasure.
