HeroQuest – hQuestBuilder Homebrew Icons

The hQuestBuilder web app by squidgem0nster is a very cool way to quickly create maps and quests for HeroQuest that I’ve been honored to help out with and would highly recommend as a more simple alternative to using a fully-fledged quest maker program like the amazing HeroScribe, particularly if you want to make something on the go using a mobile device.

A recent update allows you to use your own user-created single-tile icons for custom monsters, traps, etc. The main limitation to this is that you have to point to an image already hosted online somewhere (i.e. you can’t just add a local image from your hard drive); this is especially problematic as while png files work fine,i you really should use svg (vector) format icons for quality that matches the existing ones.

Below are links you can use to access the custom icons I’ve made for HeroQuest mapping (see here for an example) in the hQuestBuilder web app. Simple copy and paste any URL below into the popup box when you click a “+” sign under “Homebrew” in the web app to be able to use that icon in your map Make sure you use a URL pointing to an SVG image and not the preview images on this page!
