Hasbro has announced that the next expansion for the new version of HeroQuest is The Rogue Heir of Elethorn. The “Hero Collection” will include two new rogue characters, twelve character cards, and a new story sheet. In addition, the rogues introduce skills currently unavailable to any other hero in the game.
The small expansion is set to ship out during December and is priced at $16.99. The HeroQuest Game System is required to use these characters, which should go without saying. Or, you could just pick them up to paint for use in another tabletop RPG.
Prepare for battle! Independent, but loyal to the monarch, The Rogue Heir of Elethorn is a nimble skirmisher deadly with small blades. When you play as this hero, you lack the ability to use metal armor and shields, but you’re equipped with your trusty bandolier, and are always ready to meet danger head on.
- THE ROGUE HEIR OF ELETHORN: This HeroQuest character collection includes two finely-detailed miniatures, 12 game cards, and a story card. (Requires HeroQuest Game System to Play. Sold Separately)
- EXPAND YOUR GAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE: Go deeper and broader into the world of HeroQuest with this nimble skirmisher who has unique powers and skills not possessed by any other HeroQuest character
- CHOOSE YOUR HERO: Choose to play as the male or female Rogue Heir of Elethorn. Each one has the skills as a well-trained knife fighter ready to stand between allies and danger
- WELL-HONED FIGHTING SKILLS: Combat Mobility, Ambidextrous, Dagger, and Bandolier cards reveal unique advantages you acquire when playing as this reluctant, yet loyal hero
HeroQuest was relaunched last year after the original Games Workshop version ceased production in the 1990s. The revised HeroQuest started out as a crowdfunding campaign on Hasbro Pulse and hit the market during the Christmas season of 2021. While many features remained, some things had to be changed because Games Workshop was no longer involved. Mainly this applied to character designs. The game has proven popular as it has received several expansions. The Frozen Horror, an expansion for the original game, is also being reimagined and should be on the market this September.
