The Summer Palace is where the the 'folks in charge' vacation. It's not a big place, but is still a place fit for a king. The palace has vast fields surrounding it. The official 'Throne Room' is separated a bit from the main part of the complex. The Summer Palace is also the location of the cemetery of the kings.
Here you see the path that lead to the Summer Palace. To the right and ahead there are fields of sunflowers and other grains. A Goblin is menacing a farmer in this field.
There is a doorway that leads into the Palace. Here you see the Kitchen (bottom), the Armory (Left) and a bedroom. You can Scorpions and several Mummys have over-run this part of the Palace.
At the edge of the Palace a doorway leads out into the Cemetery. Several broken tombs suggest where the Mummys have come from. A Powerful Mummy stands in front of the Relic, the Shield of the King. The Skeleton blocks the way to the leader of the Mummys.
Leaving the Palace to head to the Throne Room offers another view of the fields surrounding the Palace.
The Throne room has been overrun by Goblins and the Dark Druid. The Dark Druid is wearing the Horns of the Minotaur, a very powerful artifact.
Yes, there actually is a Throne in the Throne room - way at the back.
A few comments on this scenario. Monster strength for existing Heroica monsters is the same. The green frogs are Strength 1 while the brown toad is strength 2. The Scorpions are St:1 though you could have the gold scorpion be St:2. The regular mummies are St:1, the Skeleton is St:2 and the Boss Mummy is St:3.
The Shield of the King artifact absorbs 1 point of damage from a hit. If the player with it equipped it drops to health zero the Shield is removed from the game. The Minotaur Horns gives a knockback surge when in the hands of a monster. Suppose there are 3 heroes on adjacent spaces, with one of the heroes adjacent to a monster with the Horns equipped. If the Monster deals a wound to the attacking hero, rather than getting bumped to the back of the line and taking one wound, everyone in the line moves back one space and takes a wound - think trampled by the charge of the monster.
There are many NMNH (Non Monster Non Hero) figures on the map. They can be played as inanimate. To add some additional interest, the Heroes can 'rescue' them. When the Heroes are placed on the starting spaces, one of the Heroes is within 4 spaces of the goblin in the sunflower field. Being within 4 spaces triggers the monster. After all of the Heroes have taken a turn, if the monster is still adjacent to a NMNH, the monster rolls the die. If the symbol is Heroica, the NMNH is killed (or incapacitated). Once this outcome is determined, check to see if any other monsters are within 4 spaces of a Hero. If so, that monster will be triggered at the end of the next round for the Heroes. If the party splits up, there might be more than one monster that is triggered. Additionally, rescued NMNH figures could show their gratitude (once all the mummies are dead) by giving their rescuer something.
Everything else is covered under normal Heroica rules.

Thanks for your nice comments! The Lego games I used in this map were a Castle Fortaan, Frog Rush, Ramses Pyramid, and Harry Potter. The Harry Potter game parts are perfect for Heroica. Frog Rush has 21 full size 'spaces' and another 12 half size spaces (like the ones on the Draida bridge). Ramses Pyramid only has 8 spaces, but the mummys make up for that. The 'Rocks' come from Frog Rush and Ramses. A few of the items (the flowers, the streetlights, the artifacts) came from the Legos my kids have not taken to their homes yet.
Kewl! i don't have most of those though :( only Ramses, and of course, Fortaan (why the double a?) but i made up for it with Sixty "spaces" off of eBay, like i said in "My Heroica"
