The Warhammer Quest Event Generator
Ok, the real reason I started
working on The Fighting Pit was to make a nice front end to distribute
this program. It's freeware, I can't imagine anyone would pay for it, so
download it and give all your friends a copy. I don't care, as long as
the program is not edited in any way. Also, I don't beleive it would be
quite legal for me to charge money for something that's based entirely
around someone else's game. For more info on how I tried to cover my
butt from being sued by Games Workshop, see my Legal
Where Did it Come From?
Ok, so where did the Warhammer Quest Event Generator come from you ask?
Well, it started when I noticed that as you go along in the Warhammer
Quest game, the easy to use event deck is replaced with not so easy to
use charts and tables. And if that wasn't enought, people started
writing more tables and expansions and posting them on the web. Getting
sick of all these tables to roll on and missing that cute little deck of
event cards, I started writing a program that would siulate the deck yet still
have the ability to expand and grow as the tables do.
What Does it Do?
Well, at first it looks just like your event deck. You click on the
picture of the deck, and a "card" is drawn from the deck, showing you
either a monster or an event. Easy, no? Well, you can also load in
different database files of monsters and events. The program comes with
the first three levels of monsters found in Warhammer Quest Rule Book, and
an event table courtesy and copyright of Andrew Brockhouse (He's got tons
of great tables, check out his website).
Wait, There's More!
Yeah, so what happens if you go past third level? Or what if you want to
throw that really neat blood sucking three toed vampire sloth you created
in with the other second level monsters. Well, the program also lets you
edit the database files and create new ones. Notice - In previous
versions, editing tables was permanent (no undo or delete). This has been
fixed in the most recent version.
Download it Now!
Ok, enough chit chat, huh? Here's the download. It's in a zipped file,
so you'll need a decompressing application, like Winzip. Also, you can download the
table files in case you accidentally screwed them up with the editors.
They're also zipped.
The current version of WHQevent is 2.0.2. The following is a list of what
was updated with each release:
- Error displaying number in secondary monsters fixed.

"-", "S", and "*S")
- Help files updated (including credit to Mr. Andrew Brockhouse)
- Monster editor fixed to accept values of "-", "S", and "*S"
