    Here's some quick feedback from me.

    Quote from Klipce >>
     

    Power Word: Dream: "Silence a minion and give it Can't Attack. Add Ysera's Dream to your opponent's hand." That might clear up what "Dream" is.

    Cursed Wood Totem: Really weak. Even if you copy a powerful Totem, it ends up as a 0/5, as useless statline. Am I missing some combo potential here? Also, a typo.

    Feral Shapeshifter: Hmmmm... I think it's ok, but a little weak. It's either a worse Devastate, or a 3/1 vanilla minion, which is a pretty bad statline.

    I like Delilah's power a lot.
    Rottenbark, also good.

    Haunted Ancient: Again, maybe "Ysera's Nightmare". Also this is really scary... That's 10 damage in hand.

    Ursoc's power, also good.

    Quote from whatTheHeck >>
     

    Pincer Strike: Typo in card name. Hmmmmm... really hard to evaluate this card... 

    Panther of the Grove: Another very hard to evaluate card. I think, ultimately, it is too high-rolly and polarizing to see widespread play. It's nuts on turn 4 or even 5, but beyond that it is completely useless.

    Resourceful Murloc: Very powerful card. Careful with this, Murloc Shaman was strong for a while, this might make it too strong. Also, Murloc as a tribe is capitalized.

    Hope to see your Boss powers soon.

    posted a message on Weekly Card Design Competition 10.18 - Finalist's Poll
    Quote from lchk >>

    Why is Weaponized Armadillo not included? That card also got 4 upvotes and all submissions are on the same page.

    I'm not sure. I'll talk to Phoenix about this. In the meantime, I've added it.

    EDIT: Ok, Nix always does the final poll so he knows best. The formula we use not only accounts for upvotes, but also the position the post is on the page. The farther down a post is on a page, the higher the score is. This is a very slight bonus that we use to break ties. This time, since I added it, I'll keep it there.

    Hey, one little question...

    Will we need to do four bosses in the two final wings?

    I know it won't be applied until later rounds, but I'd like to know it in order to plan my wings better.

    Yup. I think that was mentioned in the opening blurb, not the FAQ.

    Welcome, one and all, to Quest Givers Anonymous, a Hearthpwn Custom Adventure Competition!

    This is the Submissions Thread, where you enter your entries you've worked hard on.
    We are currently on Wing Two.

    Do not hold any discussion here.

    If you were looking for the Submission Thread, head on over here.

    Here is an example post, showing off one boss.

    You may also find it useful to ask a question or two on the Hearthpwn Discord.
    The mods are there and can try to answer any concerns you may have.



    For those who have been playing Hearthstone for a bit longer, you may remember "Adventures", the singleplayer experience that preceded the Dungeon Run-based content we have now. Newer players may also recall the singleplayer content released alongside Knights of the Frozen Throne; that is an Adventure.

    Quest Givers Anonymous gives you the opportunity to show off your card creation skills on a much larger scale. Over the next few months, contestants will:

    • Follow an outline based on the Blackrock Mountain adventure. Create two boss decks and a final boss deck for each wing. Each wing will take up a phase and each phase lasts 2 weeks. The fourth and fifth wings have 3 bosses and a final boss, instead.
    • A boss deck entails a mixture of cards found in-game, some custom-made cards, and, most importantly, the Boss' Hero Power.
    • Furthermore, Adventures have rewards! As such, for each boss, there will be card rewards for a player who defeats a boss.

    Hopefully, this quick overview gives you an idea of what to expect going forward. Other more technical questions will be addressed in the FAQ section below.

    • Now that you've settled in, it's time to throw a few curveballs at you.
    • There are two challenges this time around.
      1. You are able to showcase four cards this round! The catch? You must either choose to showcase four of your reward cards, or two reward cards, a boss portrait and their corresponding Hero Power.
        • If you choose four reward cards, you may not showcase any legendaries.
        • If you choose a boss, their Hero Power, and two other cards, that boss' Hero Power cannot be passive.
      2. The second challenge is more limiting in its nature. Your final boss of the second wing must have a Hero Power that is three lines or less, including the "Hero Power" or "Passive Hero Power" at the top.

    Posting Tutorial

    This is a posting tutorial for the website imgur.com. If you use another website, the process will be similar.

    1. It is recommended you use hearthcards.net to create your cards. Save the generated card to your device.
    2. Upload the image to imgur.com. You do not need an account.
    3. After your image is uploaded, many links will be generated. Find the "Direct link". It will have a .jpg or .png at the end of the link. Copy the link.
    4. On your hearthpwn post, find the "Insert/edit image" button: 
    5. Paste the direct link. This is recommended but not mandatory: You may choose to make the image smaller by changing the image dimensions.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    • What exactly am I making?
      • You will be making an entire Adventure singleplayer expansion.
      • The number of bosses and card rewards are the same as Blackrock Mountain.
      • In Blackrock Mountain, there are:
    • I have to follow the reward structure of Blackrock Mountain, but do I have to follow the exact order too? For example, Wing One has a neutral, a Rogue common, a Priest rare, etc. etc.
      • No. You can reward players with your cards in any order you want, so long as the class-neutral and rarity ratios stay the same, and you follow how each boss rewards one card per victory.
    • How do I present my creation? 
      • You entire submission goes in the Submission Thread.
      • The Boss' portrait and Hero Power go in a spoiler. Boss decklists must be listed under the same spoiler. Use a separate spoiler for each deck. If your boss deck has any custom cards, they must also go in the same spoiler.
      • For each wing, you may present up to three cards outside of a spoiler. (Each wing will usually have either five or six cards.)
      • Furthermore, you are allowed a short paragraph introducing your Adventure, or continuing where you left off in future weeks.
      • There is an example you can refer to here.
    • How will entries be judged?
      • In the past, due to a large number of entries, we'd have a public poll and a percentage of that phase would move on, while the rest were eliminated.
      • The public poll takes place in a separate voting thread, just like in a weekly competition.
      • Depending on the number of entries, we can continue to do that, or, if people prefer and there are fewer entries, votes will instead be accumulated throughout phases and no one is eliminated.
    • Am I allowed to work on future wings before a Phase starts?
      • Yes, but, there may be a challenge or an extra requirement thrown your way which might force you to redo some parts.
    • Am I allowed to work with someone else?
      • Yes. You may work with one other person provided they have a Hearthpwn account. You will need to inform the moderators before you team up.
    • Do I have to make heroic versions of each boss' Hero Power and deck?
      • No, but if you do, they need to be under a spoiler.
    • Some bosses have special mechanics, like starting with a card. How do I denote this?
      • Simply state that the boss does in its decklist spoiler.
    • Do I have to state which boss has a class challenge?
      • Yes.
    • Do I need to introduce a keyword?
      • No.
    • Do boss decks require at least one custom card?
      • No, you can have a boss deck with no custom cards at all.
    • Am I allowed to have additional fancy graphics in my submission?
      • You are allowed a single, simple banner. In the past, several talented individuals were able to dazzle voters with their artistic and photo manipulation skills. While the moderator teams wants everyone to compete to the best of their abilities, it was decided by the previous moderator team to not allow too many additional graphics. We will honour that decision. Whether a banner is allowed or not is up to the discretion of the moderator team. An example of an acceptable banner can be found here.
      • The exception to this rule are the dialogue boxes that pop up during Adventures and other singleplayer content. You may have a reasonable number of them, if you choose to add them in.
    • I have some ideas for extra things! How do I implement them?
      • "Bonus" or "secret" battles, sort of like the cow king: You can have bonus battles, but you may not break from the number of bosses you are supposed to do for that wing. For example, Wing One in Blackrock Mountain has 3 bosses. You may do two bosses and then one bonus battle, but not 3 bosses and an additional battle.
      • New heroes (like Arthas), card backs, etc.: You can add as many additional non-card rewards as you want. For the most part, these do not affect any technical aspects of this competition. These must be place under a spoiler, however, as having many of these would fall under having too many fancy graphics.
    • What are the real-life rewards?
      • You will earn the special silver card creator border and, as per tradition, you may accept an interview from the mod team that gets posted on the front page. Lastly, a small bundle of packs will be in order.

    Competition Process

    The Competition Process, as stated above, is slated to be one wing per two weeks with a voting period of 3 days, leaving a total of 11 days for card creation. Five wings will take a total of 10 weeks. This is a tentative estimate and the moderators will be continually monitoring the flow of the competition. 

    • Phase One, Wing One: January 4th — January 16th
      Voting period: January 16th — January 18th
    • Phase Two, Wing Two:  January 18th — January 30th
      Voting period:  January 30th — February 1st
    • Phase Three, Wing Three: February 1st — February 13th
      Voting period: February 13th — February 15th
    • Phase Four, Wing Four: February 15th — February 27th
      Voting period: February 27th — February 29th
    • Phase Five, Wing Five: February 29th — March 12th
      Voting period: February 12th — March 14th

    Discussion Topic Rules

    As usual, we have a few basic rules. They're the same as the rules in a Weekly Competition, so most of you should have no problem here.

    Posting Rules

    • You are allowed to submit only one entry. 
    • After your submit, you may only make minor edits to your submissions (spelling, grammar, etc.). Please PM a fan creations moderator if you have questions regarding an edit you are not sure about.
    • You may not delete ANY posts you make in this Submission Topic, not even accidental ones. Please PM a fan creations moderator if you make a mistake in your submission.
    • This thread is for submissions only. Any discussion of the competition must take place in the discussion topic.

    These are the rules about your Submission:

    • Your card cannot be Golden, have a hearthcards.net generated backdrop, or any major photo editing done to it.
    • You are allowed to post in this Submission Topic only once, only to submit your one entry.
    • Accompanying the image of your card, you may offer some minimal additional commentary to explain its design, balance, and/or other qualities. Flavor text is also welcome.
    • You may not plagiarize. An immediate qualification is the punishment for this offense.
    • You must host your card on a image hosting website.
    • Fun and even humorous entries are perfectly allowed, but "troll" entries will be disqualified. If you're worried that your card may be misinterpreted as a troll card, contact a moderator before you submit. Emote-related cards will be considered a troll entry.
    • We reserve the right to classify cards as "troll" entries as we deem necessary, even if the reasoning is not explicitly stated in the rules.

    Discussion Topic Rules

    As usual, we have a few basic rules. They're the same as the rules in a Weekly Competition, so most of you should have no problem here.

    To make sure that everything runs smoothly, we need to reserve the Submission Topic for submissions only. Everything else goes here. What is everything else, you might ask?

        • Rules or Process. Do you have a question about the competition's process? Do you need clarification about one of the entry requirements? Are you not sure whether your entry adhered to the rules? Ask here!
        • Feedback or Ideas. Do you have some ideas you'd like to run by others before settling on one? Do you need help balancing or wording your entry? Do you need help finding art that will fit your card? Or do you just want feedback from the community on your entry? You're in the right place! Remember, although you are allowed to make minor tweaks to your entry after you've submitted it, you're only allowed one submission per week, so make sure that you've settled on your card for sure beforehand.
        • Discussion! Do you have thoughts on other people's entries? Are there directions you don't like that you're seeing too many people take? Or directions you'd like to see more people take? Would you like to help others and contribute to a greater community understanding of Hearthstone card design and balance? This is where you want to be!

    All of that said, please refrain from the following:

        • Posting TONS of Ideas. Discussion topics become an absolute mess if everybody is posting a dozen different ideas. Please post not more than 3 distinct ideas at a time. Any more than that and we'll have to delete your post.
        • Advertising Your Entry. As a rule of thumb, please don't pop in here just to advertise your entry only to never be heard from again. This includes only asking short, generic questions like "Thoughts?" or "Do you think this is interesting?". Yes, getting feedback on your entry is one of the purposes of this topic, but we're not just here for other people to help you. We're here for you all to help each other
        • Plagiarism. Many people post their ideas here before finalizing them in the submission topic. Directly plagiarizing those ideas to post in the submission topic yourself is absolutely not acceptable.

    Can't say I enjoy this deck very much. Haven't had much success. I'm getting dumpstered by all the singleton decks, can at least eke out wins against faster decks like midrange paladin.

    Issues I found:

    1) Emerald Dreams and Nightmares has me as designer instead of Klipce.

    2) Darkmoon Fail has wrong classes in Class Challenges.

    3) In Quest Givers Anonymous, Wretched Warden has flavour text of my Slithius.

    4) Conquest of Dreanor bosses have wrong flavour texts. Also, first boss has wrong name and class challenge.

    5) Warlord Zol'zak in Fate of Lordaeron has wrong flavour text.

    6) Horror from the Deep has wrong designer.

    @McF4rtson Great edit, it must've been a pain to put all entries together! It seems that you forgot to add Cursed Crewmember (Soul of the Plunder token) to Patches' token list, though. Not that big of a deal because it's a plain 2/1 vanilla, but I would like it to be added just for consistency, if you could.

     

    Thanks to both of you, all fixed.

    Great job, Farts! If editing one of this is tough I can't imagine what it's like with eight at the same time.

    I want to point up a couple things about my adventure, however: you called my first boss Slithering Ooze, and you kept the flavor texts from Step into Darkness.

    Fixed.

    This was an absolute *monster* of a thread to edit.

    Contestants, I trimmed a bit of flavour text here and there, preserving the important bits.

    If I missed anything that is truly vital, let me know. I will not add additional flavour text unless it is critical.

     Welcome, one and all, to Quest Givers Anonymous, a Hearthpwn Custom Adventure Competition!

    We are currently on Wing One.

    This is a very lengthy post. Take your time viewing, there is no need to rush.


    We have nine amazing entries, all featured below!
    For this contest, you can vote for as many as you like, and vote totals will be carried over to each subsequent wing.

    "Step into Darkness", by MrBurger

    Adventurer! We need your help once again! Near Stormwind City, in mountains leading to Burning Steppes, unexpected earthquakes took place. Our scouts reported apperance of a giant hole, which is enlarging. They also said they heard whispers from it. We're not sure what that means, maybe that's true what they say, but maybe something made them crazy. But if so, we still need somebody to solve this problem. That person will of course get price. So?

     

    Spider'n'Troubles:

     

    I'm in trouble?

    This works just like Discover, Choose One, Siamat or Zephrys the Great. You choose an effect, then that effect occurs.

    Wing 1: Dark Tunnels 

    First Boss: Terrifying Ooze

     

    You expected that whispers will be stronger when you will enter a cave, but instead they began to be much more quiet. Soon, a cave splitted into smaller tunnels. You entered one, but suddenly a big ooze monster formed at front of you.

    Deck:

    Minions (16):

    Spells (14):

    Heroic Hero Power

     

    Card Rewards (Class Challenge: Druid)

    Frogaen's Ooze:

     

     Second Boss: Slithius, the Hungry

     

    Just when you thought there's no life there, you saw a shape in the darkness coming to you fast. You draw a sword, but when it was closer, you saw a big frog running on two legs wich screamed: "Help me! It's Slithius!" After it, you saw a giant lizard.

    Deck:

    Minions (17):

    Spells (13):

    Heroic Hero Power

     

    Card Rewards (Class Challenge: Hunter)

    Spider from the Darkness:

     

     Third Boss: Leonora Heartloss

     

    After saving the frog, it decided to follow you. It introduced itself as Groag, and he told you about his race - Frogaen. He offered you a deal: He will lead you to his home, where you could gain help of other Frogaen, but you will protect him from dangers until that. And it looked like there were many dangers  in these undergrounds. Soon after you fought a giant lizard, you met a banshee. When she saw you, you heard her voice: "Dougan? You're not my Dougan!". Then she started to scream.

    Deck:

    Minions(18):

    Spells(12):

    Groag's Troubles:

       

    "Celestial Coup d'Etat", by Granduroi

    "Above the Sky, in the country of the Angels, great troubles are taking place. After the attack on Dalaran, the people above the skies are now scared of the earthlings, and some began to question the autority of the King Melkhiel. Negociations were inefficient, and an insurgency took a city and claim independance ! Even if the King is open to discussions, the rebels are violent, and determined to destroy the Kingdom of the Skies, and you must stop them !"

    This adventure is centered on the Kingdom above the Skies, a realm above Azeroth, and usually not interested by the events on the ground. But with the recent and terrible changes under the clouds the two worlds are now a little closer and the King Melkhiel ask help from everywhere ! In this adventure, you will fight rebellious and violent people from Azeroth, but also from the sky, and you will face some of the most powerful flying person! Fly is a new evergreen keyword introduced in this adventure :

     

    Wing One : The Entrance of Al Merald

    The King welcomed you on land, looking at the city floating above. He can surely fly to the entrance, but you are not gifted with wings, and so you must penetrate in another way. It will not be simple, but if you want to end this mysterious rebellion, you must take the front door, with all the problems which this option brings !

    "Emerald Dreams and Nightmares", by Klipce

    "In the deepest forest lays a grove of emerald, a flourishing domain of ethereal peace. But the place has been cast in a gloomy slumber and there's no comming back for those who fall asleep. Hurry adventurers before the land despairs ! Come to follow your dreams and face your worse nightmares !"

    This adventure is inspired by the Emerald Dream and Emerald Nightmare, as well as the events of the War Against the Nightmare. It will feature a new keyword : Phantasm which lets you add an extra copy of the card to your deck. Players would be given 3 copies of common/rare/epic cards with Phantasm and 2 copies of legendary cards with the keyword. The number of cards in a deck would still be 30 as Phantasm would only affect the number of copies of  a card that can be added to a deck.

     

    Wing 1: The Dreamgrove

    Broll Bearmantle greets you in what used to be a verdant realm but has now been covered in a dense fog and cursed with slumber from which none can wake up. The worst part is that the sleepers are tourmented by horrible nightmares that leave them screaming in fear !

    How can you put an end to this madness ?

    First Boss: Dreaming Adventurer


    This guy made the mistake of taking a nap and now he's trapped in a delusion that makes him see everyone as a terrible foe. It's an aggressive but somewhat random opponent who relies on powerful weapon strikes.

    "Darkmoon Fail", by KingKuba

    Ahead of You, Down the Path
    A Majestic, Magical Faire!
    Ignore the Darkened, Eerie Woods
    Ignore the Eyes That Blink and Stare
    Fun and Games and Wondrous Sights!
    Music and Fireworks to Light Up the Night!
    Do Not Stop! You're Nearly There!
    Behold, My Friend, the Darkmoon FAIL!

    ... Wait... What?
    That's really a name of this set?
    Is there something that I simply don't get?
    Oh, the portal is closed.

    ... THE PORTAL IS CLOSED!?
    Everyone stuck on this land, I suppose!
    And after the week of fun and play,
    We'll soon be some hidden nightmare's prey!
    While we have time, we need to act,
    Or this cursed forest will get its snack!
    How will we make it? There is no pattern,
    There's also that creepy guy with a lantern...
    Soon you will make it! The sun will prevail,
    But right now welcome, to the Darkmoon Fail!

    Every Hearthstone match up to this point took place during the Day.

    Now, you can use some dark magic and play in the Night!

    Boss Behaviour

    • Unlike the Mechazod Tavern Brawl, this Adventure Battle allows the player to create their own deck. Therefore, there are several things that have no effect:
      • Silence has no effect on Marie.
      • Poisonous minions have no effect on Marie.
      • Marie can never leave the board. (Sap, Vanish)
      • She cannot be destroyed by effects such as Assassinate or The Black Knight.
      • She cannot be affected by any enchantments. (Humility, Subdue, etc.)
      • Mecha'thun works... but you would just destroy your ally, so you'd lose.
      • Like the Tavern Brawl, Marie will clear your board if you have 7 minions and she switches to your side.
    • Like Mechazod, Marie has certain algorithms to improve her performance. For example, Mechazod tries not to Overclock too often.
      • She will not use Royal Decree if there are no powerful, heavily buffed, minions.

    Greetings, Adventurer! I am Mariscal Lord Garithos, time traveler and guide of the Human race.

    In the ominous future I come from, a Horde of wretched monsters came from another world and destroyed our precious Azeroth. Many other calamities followed that invasions, and now Undead and Demons alike walk over once sacred lands.

    That's why I came to this time: If we attack their world before they attack ours, History can turn very differently. Follow me through this portal and help me to claim Draenor in the name of the Holy Light!

    "The Treasures of VanCleef", by whatTheHeck

    "Tales of wonder, whispers the sea. Tales of plunder, robbery and thieves! Tales about pirates, burly and mean! And among them a Rogue engineer. Leading the Defias, the fearsome VanCleef! But as every reign of terror, condemned to fall. As with every failure, gold left behind. So who's the brave, who'll claim the treasure? Pirates from all nations, will raid Ironclad! But most of them are fated to fail. Mate, the path is such a treacherous trail! Through the Vile Reef you must battle, the Stranglethorn Vale you must survive! And only then the dreaded Deadmines you'll finally find! But be careful, because dead man tell no tales... about the treasures of VanCleef."

     

    The adventure presents the Burst Mechanic, an ability that some minions have that let them make an special action whenever they want during your turn... but the catch is, that only once! So find the perfect moment to use a minion's Burst ability!

     

    Wing 1: The Vile Reef

    You've been told about the big Defias treasure by former member of VanCleef's band Captain Greenskin. He plans to hire you in his crew to get to the Defias' Hideout in Stranglethorn. But first, your ship needs to survive the Vile Reef, where other pesky pirates seeking for the treasure will fight you!

    "Fate of Lordaeron", by Ardin427

    Hold, lad. There's an inscription on the dais. It's a warning. It says, "Whomsoever takes up this blade shall wield power eternal. Just as the blade rends flesh, so must power scar the spirit."

    Hey there and welcome to a new custom adventure - Fate of Lordaeron. Some of you who have played Warcraft 3 might have already recognized the quote above – it refers to nothing else than the Frostmourne -  the bane of Lordaeron, the dread blade of the Lich King. This expansion takes us back before the era of the Lich King as we know him, back to the last days of Lordaeron and the last days of prince Arthas as its defender.

    This adventure will follow the old Naxxramas and Blackrock and thus feature no new Keyword. But what does it bring?

    Return of Knights of the Frozen Throne mechanics – Being close to Icecrown and the undead Scourge some cards bring their mechanics back – namely Secret Deathrattles, Defile – style re-casting cards and of course - FREEZE SHAMAN!

    New Mechanic - Though not a Keyword you can still Discover a new Mechanic for this expansion as you venture deeper into the cold north…

    Fate of Lordaeron - Follow the story of Arthas and learn how he became the Lich King, or perhaps discover a different path and save the Kingdom…

     

    Wing 1: The Landing

    In pursuit of the nefarious dreadlord Mal’ganis prince Arthas gathered his army and without the knowledge or approval of his father – the King, sailed to the lands of Northrend. Now it is up to you to assist the prince in securing the supplies and find a good place to set up a base…

    "Horror From The Deep", by Avernic

    The narrative of the adventure is based around events involving the Ambassador, a servant of an eldritch horror. Mechanically the adventure is themed around Black Stone, a corrupting and empowering material which manifests as tokens that sit in the player's hand, with the downside of damaging them at the start of their turn.

    Author's Note: It seems that I have 100% less Warcraft knowledge than evteryone here so I've gone ahead and based my adventure off an MMO I know enough about to design cards and encounter around, Runescape.

    @McF4rtson

    Can we make changes to our submissions after posting them? To add Heroic Hero Powers and such things.

    You can go back to add Heroic powers, but you cannot drastically alter the original post.

    Quote from MrBurger >>

    So, if there will be no final poll in this phase, then the whole competition will be shorter?

    No, there are still final polls for each wing:

    • Phase One, Wing One: January 4th — January 16th
    • Voting period: January 16th — January 18th

    In the past, contestants would be cut each round until a final 4 remained. For now, that will not happen since we only have 9 entries. Everyone will move on an continue to retain their votes as the competition moves on.
