an HeroQuest fanzine and a tribute
issue #4

APRIL 2021

FEAR the Dark is a fanzine dedicated to HeroQuest - the popular fantasy board game of the 90s which introduced so many of us to dungeon crawling and miniatures.

Issue 4 marks a change in the scope of this fanzine. With this issue, I will try to present a way to generate random dungeons with a few simple dice rolls, so that you and your players can keep adventuring without limits.

This system is clearly derived by the Advanced HeroQuest random dungeon generation tables. I believe the Advanced HeroQuest modular tiles are great and honestly, I would run most of my adventures with those, instead than with the traditional board.
But Advanced HeroQuest is rare (much rarer than a usable HeroQuest copy) and expensive, and with HeroQuest coming back to the market, I decided for now to stick to the regular HeroQuest board.

Issue number 4 – April 2021:

- A short introduction

- Exploration phase and endless dungeons

- Generate missions or themes for dungeons

- Generate random rooms, monsters, corridors, traps, secrets, etc.

- A usable summary of the traditional rules

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
