Hi everyone. I'm Bryan and I'm a TFOL. I've been building for many years now. My favorite themes are Castle and Pirates.

I am a TFOL and I have no specific preference of what kind of LEGO theme. I am mostly a customizer that makes LEGOs based on video games and will cut/paint/glue pieces to make what I want. I also play alot of video games. I am Yobakk on Xbox LIVE, PSN, and Steam.

Hi, I'm Chris and I'm an AFOL.

After buying Heroica mostly for the parts and then trying it out when I needed something to do at BrickWorld, I became hooked.

I'm adapting the rules to suit my own purposes and I recently finished building a lengthy scenario that includes heroes working together and a game master controlling the monsters. While the GM can still kill the heroes, no one person can really "win" the game (it's more about the experience).

If this scenario goes well, I'll probably continue on with a whole campaign.

Am I allowed to link to Flickr? That's where my photos are right now...

Greetings!

I'm Guy (CouchGuy) McLimore, a 56-yr-old Lego fan who has been having fun with Lego since I was a child. As a "semi-retired" professional game designer, I'm fascinated by the simplicity and fun built into the Lego game line. I've always thought Lego and games were a natural mix, and Lego is doing very well with the first creations. I love the microfigures as a way to keep the cost of the games down by reducing the scale, and I am particularly fond of the open-ended approach they've taken with the games, making them expandable and encouraging the fanbase to add their own ideas.

Heroica seems like a great classic heroic fantasy gameworld, and I'm hoping to add my own expansion ideas to it. My long-time game design partner Greg Poehlein is also getting into Heroica, and we'll share whatever we come up with.

Right now, I'm compiling a guide to all the existing heroes, monsters, items, obstacles and weapons, and then I'll start adding to that, at first creating stats and rules for other Lego microfigures and then perhaps working on an "advanced" set of rules for people like me who can't resist tweaking and playing with rule systems. I especially think the game will eventually need a little more room to differentiate the characters from one another. (The same is true for the monsters. Every Strength 3 creature should not be the same...)

I'd also be interested in seeing any ideas people have for "scaling up" Heroica to minifig size. What parts would you use for the spaces, what figures would you use for characters, etc. This would create a world of possibilities with the incredible variety of figures out there.

Has anyone tried their hand at microfigure repaints and customization yet?

Here's what I built for my new scenario. I tested it out with three hero players yesterday. It took over 5 hours, but they enjoyed it!
There are caves and dungeons underneath the town, which are revealed when sections are lifted off.

Wow! That's awesome! That looks really fun to play! You should add it to MOCpages so we can see more pictures!

I realized that I didn't introduce myself. I've been getting Legos for my kids (That's what I keep telling them) over 25 years. Legos didn't exist when I was young (I'm over 60) so I've got a lot of time to make up for building things. I'm a big fan of the game HeroScape because the maps are very customizable. Heroica has that same feel for me. I tend to prefer co-operative play so the basic game is OK but could benefit from additional depth. I'm interested in helping develop the version where it is the heroes being challenged by a DM tpye.

Hi! My name is Ben Romeo. I am a TFOL, and I love making my own board games. I got Waldurk for my birthday this year, and that well and truly got me hooked. I recently built using my own collection two new boards: Barresh Mountains (that's the place from where the Barbarian hails), and Drandora Port (the Rouge's home). I shall try to post them here soon!

I have, actually! I noticed that Waldurk came with a "bonus" microfig statue. I was going to decal that, but then I made my own custom boards with new monsters. I decided it would be better if I just made microfigs, so I came up with a design that uses four 1x1 plates and one 1x1 round brick and a lot of sanding and filing. I'll post pics soon!

Hi, I'm Paul Gyugyi, a AFOL. I've been mixing LEGO, games, and computer graphics for a while now -- here's an old site from 1998:
http://web.archive.org/web/19980628194641/http://www.gyugyi.com/l3g0/darksun/index.html

I really like the micro-scale of Heroica and building new modules.

I'm currently writing an on-line javascript version of the game. Chime in on the "Playing Heroica Online" thread if you have ideas or suggestions.

Hi my name is Domingos Szabo and I joined this group cause I really like Heroica's concept and the possibilities of upgrading it. Also got fascinated by Paul idea of a online Heroica.
Good luck with the group=)

Long time LEGO and RPG fan, coming out of hibernation. Finally I have an excuse for buying LEGOs, aka the 6 year old kid :)

I hope to merge my childhood hours spent in RPG and my LEGO obsession in this forum!

Hello, I'm Luc, and adult now but life-long fan of Lego. I like the Heroica concept because it's modular so you can easily re-arrange it to play your own levels.

I play Heroica with my niece (age 8) and nephews (ages 7 and 3) so all of my ideas and custom rules get a proper test for young player suitability. We all love playing it together and my favourite Heroica MOCs are the smaller custom tiles that anybody could build and add into their set.

Hello all.
My name is Darrin. I’m a father of four; three of them are now adult. I am a lifelong fan of Lego. I was also attracted to Heroica by a perceived similarity to Heroscape. I have been blogging for several years about another Lego based game called Mechaton that is about giant robot combat. Here is the link-

http://nobsjustabs.wordpress.com/

I just recently started another blog that I am calling Halls of Heroica, that is about all things having to do with the game Heroica. On it I have linked to as many Heroica resources as I can find, including this group. Here is the link to that blog-

http://hallsofheroica.wordpress.com/

It is just begun, but like the other blog it will become a much larger and more useful resource.

Hey - I'm a mid-30's AFOL, recently got back back my childhood collection and got hooked on Heroica with my nephew. Anyhow, looking forward to getting some pics of my modules on here, I too am compiling a custom ruleset, maybe we should collaborate? Mine center around an updated backpack/inventory system as a way to add advanced tactics and rules.

Hello! Yayo here an AFOL as you call it ;-). I've been posting comments on this MOC group for a while now, so I decided to join!

Problem is, I don't have a camera so I'm not able to post pics of my creations, yet! I do have a nice collection of Lego games, and a few sets that had interesting parts, most in the castle and Harry Potter themes.

Hope to show some of my work soon!

Johnathan Pritchett, AFOL in mid thirties. My wife, kids, and I are huge Heroica fans. I played with LEGO growing up, and with kids, I have an excuse to buy new sets. After using that as an excuse, my wife joined in the fun, and now she is a collector of the Architecture series on her own.

I love this group. A lot of the work here helped to inspire my own board. I am not a terribly creative designer when it comes to original ideas, but I love playing the game, as does my family, and we didn't want to wait for new sets, so I used inspiration from sites like this to roll my own maps. The inspiration of trying to "rip off", so to speak, others has led my to finally design some more original settings.

If anyone would like to examine our Heroica game, I blog about it here:

Greetings. I am Herman and a TFOL. Uh... I have a severe lack of LEGO bricks (or atleast the ones I want,) and so I use LDD. I have taken an interest in Heroica last year and I have been creating a series of custom sets. Pravil Ocean is my only completed one so far. I am currently working on a multi-tier mini campaign set called "Fallen Kingdom"

Hi all, I'm Brian. An AFOL mostly into classic 80's Castle but Heroica has piqued my interest and is giving me a chance to experiment with micro-scale architecture.

Hey, I'm Heroica GM, over in Japan. There aren't any Heroica sold in Japan, so I usually get stuff online and have acquired an extensive set of pieces for making custom maps and characters.
I'm adding a lot of custom characters to this site. It looks like this is quite rare compared to the custom maps, so hopefully some folks can use some of my ideas (or at least the good parts of them!). Everyone's stuff on here is great and has been a big inspiration to me over the past year (since I first acquired and started sharing the Heroica game). I have a lot of ideas and will share as many as I think are interesting or fun.
