The mysterious "Old Ruins" are located just a half-day's journey from the town of Villageton. You may have noticed that this particular Story Map is different from the others. It has a winding overland path, through patches of thick undergrowth, leading to a small, underground dungeon. This adds variety to the journey with a wider range of encounters, but has another purpose as well...
The Story "Of Greed and Mischief"
has been designed to provide players with a slightly shorter quest (compared to the others). You'll notice at the bottom of the Story Card that the only map used for this quest is "The Old Ruins." One of our design goals for Heroes of Feonora
has been to ensure that no two games are ever the same, including the length of the Stories, some of which are longer and more epic, others being brief but challenging.
We've included a brief entry on the Support
page talking about how a full game can be broken up into 'play sessions.' For a full game that can be played all the way through in a single evening, this one is a good candidate.Although, trudging into any dungeon without at least one or two thieves, could slow things down considerably.
The Story? Ah, yes. We may learn more about this Persnickety Perrigrin creature, and his mysterious relationship to the King and Queen, some time in the future.
