Happy Let's play... #1: Hero Quest

Wanted to do this for a while already. Let's play an Amiga game. Here.

Let's play... Hero Quest:



Rules:
- Anyone may decide what to do
- First come, first serve (then we'll all have to wait until I update the thread...)
- The person who played last has to pause for 1 hour (but only if he did a complete move - if more than one person took part in the last turn no one has to pause)
- Anyone may finish incomplete turns without having to pause the next

We'll play as each of the 4 characters until all are dead (or all missions cleared). No one will be resurrected. We start with the 1st mission, then the 2nd and so on.

The four characters are Targhan (the Barbarian), Thorin (the Dwarf), Elrond (the Elf) and Mithrandir (the Wizard).

Btw., I highly recommend this piano-remix of Hero Quest's bgm: http://www.amigaremix.com/remixes/search/1952


We use N, E, W and S to move. Here is a pic to clear up what the directions mean:




List of Commands:

N: move 1 step north (-> the grim looking man is our "northstar" in the isometric view)
E: move 1 step east
S: move 1 step south
W: move 1 step west
O: open door (doesn't cost any movement points)
M: show map
A: attack monster ("AE" = attack monster to the east)
C: cast spell (e.g. "C water of healing on Thorin")
U: use item (e.g. "U holy water on zombie" or "U toolkit" (to dismantle trap))
T: search for treasure (default move if you don't search for hidden doors)
H: search for hidden doors or traps
F: finish turn


List of Spells:

Btw., the "competition-aspect" of this thread is EAB vs the Amiga 500. If the game (incl. witch-lord expansion disk) is completed EAB wins. If all characters die Team EAB loses...

LOL! Everyone is real bored today! I did this with Battle Chess years ago! EAB vs Amiga! I think the Amiga won! Nice one!

I choose Fire and Water, because I'm a Battlebeast fan.

You'll decide - I'll "input" your decisions via WinUAE (and always make a savestate of course).

It'll elaborate enough while this thread progresses...


I thought the wizard may select 2 elements. But Shoonay was right when he selected only 1.

So Mithrandir is now a Fire-mage.


Now please select Elrond's element:



Water, Air or Earth? Bloodwych may participate this round (which only consists of this single decision ), Shoonay has to pause now...

Okay. And so it begins...

Mission 1 - The Maze:




Targhan rolled a 7. You may now walk 7 steps and then either search for treasures or hidden doors.

Note that in the isometric view down/right is east (E), down/left is south (S), up/left is west (W) and up/right is north (N).
(Just keep in mind the "grim looking man" is our "northstar". )

In order to walk, just write e.g.: EEENNWS or 3xE 2xN W S

A means "attack". AE would mean "attack monster standing east from me".
H means "look for hidden doors".
T means "search for treasure".
C means "cast spell".
U means "use item".

Targhan currently has 0 items...





What shall he do?


(Apology in advance because this thread will often stall due to me not being online all the time...)


edit: Thanks, TCD! And Shoonay got it right - first one decides...

Sorry, g2g now (for today).

I've added the 3 Es right away:



You could've already told if you wanna look for treasure (T) or hidden doors (H)...

Now - T or H (TCD may decide this, too, since he didn't complete his turn)?

Glad you like it.



Please post if you want to look for hidden doors (incl. traps...) or treasure (you need gold for weapons and armour).
You can do this right away, e.g. EEEEE+H or 5xE+T...

So?
