Heroclix Map: the Theater

Well, even though I took my issues of 1983's "The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl" with me to Carnegie Hall last weekend, turns out I was too busy to get much work done on them. Imagine.

That's me, announcing on the Carnegie Hall stage. Yes, really. And all I could think was... "My god, now I know how Dazzler felt!'

But I did manage to get this project completed, in honor of my Carnegie Hall debut (which raised over $170,000 for Sendai/Tsunami relief, I'm happy to say)....

"THE THEATER" map for Heroclix!

It takes advantage of the new expanded rules for elevated terrain; the theater itself is level 2 elevated terrain, the street and the orchestra pit are level 1, and the box seats and tech catwalk are level 3. The front lobby has windows (windows can be 'broken' with an attack of two) and the stage curtain is special orange terrain that blocks line of sight but not movement (it appears green in the photo because what you see is not the final version of the map).

So many wonderful scenes can be replayed as games on this map! The bid for Batman's secret identity from the Englehart run. The Joker taking Pagliacci's place. Two-Face holding up the entire auditorium while his face is projected on the screen. Dazzler at Carnegie Hall!!!

If you want a copy of "The Theater", just send me your email address and I'll be happy to send you the file.
