As someone who is a new player doing the may heroquest, obviously this affects me quite a bit

Firstly, yes, I fully expect to be hideously outclassed. Hopefully what healing and magic I have (mainly flashing probably) will be handy, but I know that I'll likely be spending a fairly hefty chunk of the event hiding behind people/trees/buildings/objects/anything I can find!

More relevantly, I agree with the assessment of the "Hero" title - from a perspective of a newbie it is nice to have something to look at as a major achievement for the future.

Of the suggestions, I think I prefer Fraser's idea of making them harsher to play, as that means that having done it feels more like work, and doesn't mean it is so hard to get on the events to try for it.

Once a year also seems a reasonable option, but I'd expect that people will just try to play multiple characters, which would mean a larger quantity of characters who have it in the long run.

It might be possible to find some middle group on the second option though - perhaps say you can only have one hero ability for every X quantity of points the character is - perhaps use the 640/1280 breaks (and beyond) as good borderlines for when you're able to pick up an extra? You could then seperate the "Hero" title from the possession of hero abilities, meaning that it doesn't matter how many Heroquests the person has done, they're still a Hero, not a Hero to the Xth degree?


On the matter of low only games, I think part of this is a matter of just how horrendous an actual starting character is. The points "loan" system seems to work quite well, but if the games are all going to be mixed, I'd suggest possibly setting a base level of 50 or so points rather than starting on zero, since it will mean that starting characters are more survivable (and more importantly can feel useful).

However, if you want to make it a low only game in November I'd be up for it - I'm already booked, but I was looking at probably starting a second, more combat oriented, character later in the year, and it would probably be a good time to do it
