Cave/Mine Tiles Add-On
I. GENERAL DESCRIPTION.
Cave/Mine Tiles Add-On allows RandomQuest players to play in cave and mine setting. Except for the few exceptions described below, the normal RandomQuest rules are used for games using these tiles. The cave and mine tiles can also be mixed in with other tiles or used separately.
Because rooms are placed on the board when a room card is drawn, and all monsters are placed on the board when the appropriate room card is drawn, the Cave/Mine tiles add-on set is harder than regular RandomQuest. Take this into consideration when setting up the monster deck.
II. DECK CREATION.
The only decks that are different with this set are the Passage and Room Decks.
A. Passage Tiles and Deck.
To be able to create both cave and mine settings, you
will need to print tiles and decks for both.
1. Cave Passages.
a. Long passages.
There are two different types of 'Long Passages;
the Straight Passage and Wavy Passage. You can
print any number of either, but total you need
about 15. You will need to print a card for
You can print any number of Corners, but total
you need about 5. Print a card for each tile.
c. 'T' tiles.
There are two different types of 'T' types; the
'T' and the Fork. You can print any number of
either, but total you need about 3. Print a card
for each tile.
2. Mine Passages.
a. Straight Passages.
You will need about 15 of these. Print a card
for each tile.
b. Curve Passages.
You can print any number of Curved Passages, but
total you need about 5. Print a card for each
c. 'Y' Track.
You can print any number of 'Y' Tracks, but
total you need about 3. Print a card for each
B. Cave and Mine Rooms.
There are no special Mine Rooms. The Cave Rooms should be
used instead. There are 8 different Cave Rooms, so you
may need to print off more than one of one or more of
these tiles, depending on how long of a quest you wish to
play. Print a card for each tile you use.
II. New Rules.
1. When you draw a room card, immediately place the card on
the board. Make the monster roll described on the card,
and place any monsters on the tile. Do not make any
Fork rolls until a Hero stands on the tile.
2. There are no closed doors in caves and mines (unless
playing with a mixed cave/dungeon deck. See instructions
for this below). When placing a room onto a cave
passage, just lay tiles together.
3. There are no "Secret Passages" or "Secret Rooms" when using the Cave and Mine tiles. When the Heroes first enter a room, they are instructed on making "Fork Rolls" to see if there is a passage leading off the room. The passage is placed on any of the exits from the room. The other exits are considered blocked. Any Hero can attempt to dig out one of these passages during his turn. To attempt to do so, he must roll one red die. Consult the "Fork Roll" on the room card to see if he has dug out a passage. Whether or not he has dug the passage, on a roll of 1 or 6 he must draw a monster card. Make sure you split the deck (the same as in a 'T' Passage) when a Fork roll is successful.
4. There are no steps in Caves and Mines. Instead use the Pit tile that comes with the Cave Passages tiles. To climb a pit the Heroes must have a rope (available for 25 gold coins from the Armory). If the Heroes have no rope, they must exit the Cave or Mine and purchase one.
5. If at any time the Heroes leave a Cave or Mine, then re-enter it later, you may keep the same layout as before (you may need to make a quick map showing passages & rooms when leaving if you won't be playing for a while), but new monster rolls must be made the first time a tile is stepped on by a Hero.
6. You may wish to use the "Light Rules" that came with the
7. Dwarves get a 50% movement bonus (they may roll 3 dice for movement) because they are in their home environment.
III. Using the Cave and Mine tiles with regular Dungeon tiles.
The Cave and Mine tiles can be mixed with the regular Dungeon tiles to create different types of quests. If a regular Dungeon tile is drawn, place it behind a closed door (the Heroes will know
that this is not a regular Cave Room by the presence of the door). Do not place any monsters on this tile until the door is opened.
IV. Quests using the Cave and Mine Tiles.
1. Chaos Cavern
Quest Description: A small village is being harassed by
the minions of Chaos that make their home in a nearby
cave. You have been hired by the village elders to enter
the cave and destroy all monsters you find. The villagers
will pay each of your party 10 gold coins for each monster
that you kill.
Room and Passage Decks: Use the Cave Rooms and Passages
Quest Objective: The cave is 5 levels deep. Draw a room
randomly for levels 1-4 for the quest objective room. The
Pit goes in this room. On level number five the quest
objective is the "4-Rooms' tile. Besides rolling for
monsters, each Hero should draw a monster card for this
Note: To collect their reward the Heroes must exit the
2. Escape the Mine
Quest Description: You are miners. You were deep in the
mines, digging ore, when the wall burst open beside you.
Goblins, Orcs, and Fimirs began pouring out the hole. You
must fight your way through the green-skin monsters and
reach the surface to escape.
Room and Passage Decks: Use the Cave Rooms and Mine
Monster Deck: Only use Goblin, Orc, and Fimir cards.
Quest Objective: The Mine is 2 levels deep, with the
Heroes starting in level 2. Draw a room randomly for
level 2, this is the quest objective room. The Pit goes
in this room. There is already a rope there - the Heroes
do not need to buy one to climb up to level 1. Draw a
room randomly for level 1. A door goes in this room when
the card is drawn, this is the exit from the mines.
Note: The Heroes are in the lower level of the mine. To
reach the town where they can buy and sell armory items
and potions, the Heroes must reach level 1. It is up to
you as players to decide if the Heroes are healed when
climbing up from Level 2 to Level 1. If you wish to allow
your Heroes to rest & regain their full Body Points and
Mind Points, this is permissable.
Alternate Levels: After reaching the surface, you may
wish to track the monsters to their lair. This is a
single level quest, using the regular RandomQuest Dungeon
tiles. The entrance is in the second level of the Mine,
in the same location where the quest began. Use the
Throne Room as Objective Room for this level. Ghurbakz,
the Orc Warlord, is sitting on his throne in this room.
He rolls 5 Attack Dice, 4 Defense Dice, and has 5 Body
Points and 6 Mind Points. Don't forget that the Heroes
will have to fight their way back down to level 2 again...
3. Cave Discovery.
Quest Description: While herding your sheep, you find a
hidden cave entrance high the mountains. You recall the
tale told to you of Franz Hellzpor's Lost Regiment. While
returning from the sack of Turlean, General Franz Hellzpor
was attacked by a Goblin Horde. He is said to have taken
refuge in a local cave, and nothing was ever seen of
the General, his soldiers, or the treasure of Turlean.
With the dream of riches in your head, you enter the
Room and Passage Decks: Use the Cave Rooms and Cave
Quest Objective: This quest is a "never ending" one - it
can be played for as many levels as desired. Draw a room
for the objective room - a pit always goes in it.
You may wish to play that to exit the cave, you have to
climb back up the levels. While no monsters are in these
previously explored cave passages, they will be back if
4. Destroy the Warlock!

attack the Warlock Sensar Deveilius's mountain fortress.
Your goal is to destroy Deveilius and his monstrous army.
Quest Layout: Levels 1-3 Fortress

Levels 7-9 Deveilius's Cave
When you place the first passage on level 1 - place 2
doors on the tile. One is the exit from the Fortress and
is open. The second is a closed door. This door is
locked. Your information tells you that this leads to a
deep underground cave system – the location of Sensar
Deveilius's laboratory. The only key is said to be on the
3rd level of the fortress. You must fight your way to the
top level, find the key, fight your way back, and enter
open the door to find Deveilius. When you reach the top
level and find the key, you can be assured that Deveilius
will have his minions waiting for you. Make new monster
rolls as described on the passage & room cards you enter
