We decided that just as much effort goes into running/writing a five day as it does a HQ (well for most refs ) and thought you may as well get the other benefits. We also received a number of complaints about not being able to attend a HQ etc.

However, more than happy not to give out HQ abilities on five days if that is what players want?


My main worry is characters getting lots and lots of hero abilities in quick succession (e.g. by doing three HQs in a row in one year). That's not how things have been! And indeed it does seem to diminish the importance, historically, of some of the old HQs (which were really, really, tough) and Heroes.

So one option would be to restrict the number of HQ abilities any character can get per year (but otherwise any character can get an HQ ability by playing any 5 day). How's that for an interesting counter proposal? It deals with the worry about not being able to attend a HQ. And people do have the option of playing 5 days as different characters if they want HQ abilities out of them.

I know this might piss a couple of players off, but the _status quo_ may do so too.

What do others think?

Isn't there something a bit wrong, say, with a rank 50 triple hero? Or a rank 80 six times hero?

And won't the new players who achieve this sort of thing lack the sense of achievement that used to go with the title 'Hero'?

(P.S. Note I haven't suggested a figure per year. Also, there are all sorts of ways my suggestion could be moderated... e.g. HQ ability credits could be awarded, but one might only be able to spend a set number per year per character...)

(EDIT: Just for any of the newer players who might be reading, maybe some background might help. Historically, there are probably less than five characters who have ever done three heroquests -- actually I can only think of three. And usually, because of the way things worked, this would have taken at least five years of adventuring to do -- as it wasn't usually possible to get onto every HQ, what with waiting lists and such like. Moreover, HQs were especially challenging in a way that standard 5 days were not necessarily. So in short, being a Thrice Hero, historically in the campaign world, is a really serious deal -- indeed few characters retained enough resurrection chances to manage it. But the way things are changing will tend to alter the perception of the Hero tag IC in a way that seems untrue to campaign history... And I could add that many people once saw HQs as the pinaccle of their characters' careers, and retired those characters afterwards!)
