    I started in 1985 with red box D&D, then AD&D1 and since 1989 BRP in its many forms who has become my preferred system. Among the various BRP games I have a soft spot for Stormbringer (any and all editions) with which I run incredibly fun campaigns in the 1990s and early 2000s.

    In real life I am an academic. A linguist by training. I am married with 3 children.
  1. Today I ran SB4 for the kids. It worked very well for a very narrative session. We weren't playing it "old school" - just playing and running with the story. Sometimes I think new editions and rulesets may be cool but are really not needed. A barebones BRP engine and there you go.
  2. I think a Stormbringer 5.5 should be based on Magic World brought back to its Elric roots. Ruleswise MW is a tweaking and improvement of the Elric!/SB5 engine. Minus the setting. Add back the setting and SB 5.5 is done. The only thing that would require further tweaking is magic. For that I'd port aspects of Mongoose Elric.
  3. Ok, she's a readhead. Or at least her Corinthian helmet's plume is red. Now, to the more pressing question. Is she battling a Slarge?
  4. Actually, the big BRP family tree is a dead project. I've lost the original file in a hard drive crash. And I discovered too many other old and new variants in the meantime! Cheers, Smiorgan
  5. Wow! That's a great piece of artwork. It's so...RuneQuest!
  6. And the RQ6-Elric forum game is still going strong on Google groups, with the heroes paying a visit to the Vanishing Tower and Voilodion Ghagnasdiak! LOL. For me this forum is sufficient to discuss Revolution d100.

    Brilliant essay on modern fantasy literature.
  8. No, I think it is more likely that there are only 24 hours in a day and Chaosium just has to choose what to prioritize. They have a lot of Cthulhu to put out and the new RQ, which is a really big project and will take more than anticipated (second half 2017?). Before that it would be very unwise of Chaosium to propose a project to Mr. Moorcock, exposing themselves to financial and reputational risks. Sure, I'd love to hear about a new edition of Stormbringer, but... one thing is to take steps to normalize a strained relationship - which apparently the new Chaosium did promptly - another thing is to start a new license agreement.
  9. I guess you were not impressed by the editing of these two...
  10. Very good idea! The multi-generation character backstory is great, but it's good to accommodate different play styles. Sometimes one wants to whip-up a character quickly and go straight to exploring the Big Rubble.
  11. Looks good! Very nice layout and art. Boxes full of options and advice.
  12. Impluse buy! :-O
  13. It's better than bad news .
  14. Excellent news indeed!
  15. Good. I did not know they talked about it at Essen.
