Strike one for Dungeons and Dragons... Go BRP!
Also, there's a lot of new videos I can't post here as they have nothing to do with BRP. Go to my channel link in the video to check it out!
Again, a video which is more for the uninitiated, but if you wish to support me, give it a watch or listen. Then, if you like the horrors unveiled before you, subscribe and join the growing LEGION...
Good Evening fellow mortals.
If you would like to follow my RPG/YouTube journey (don't say I didn't warn you of the inherent danger in such an endeavor), come check you my channel Dethstrok9. This is the beginning of the end for me, but hopefully you shall find some enlightenment before you spontaneously rip your eyeballs out...
I post every Wednesday, and this blog will keep you up to date on most of my videos. Thank you for reading, see you sooner than you think...
Review: Refractions of Glasston for Call of Cthulhu
When I first heard of a group of college students working with faculty and Chaosium mentors to write a scenario I was simultaneously hopeful and skeptical. On one hand, anyone who has played role-playing games for an extended period of time knows that writing content for a wide audience for a game is challenging. My head spins a bit when I think about taking quality writing and needing to support it with art, handouts, editing and l
The journey got off to a rocky start when the 3 fools met in MacDonald's for a planning phase. The session quickly spiraled downhill for the players as no one could find the light, and nothing they did mattered. They also killed everyone they came in contact with...
The horror began with jokes and ended in ironic terror as minds were blown and games were metaed. Join us again next Saturday for the second (likely final) part to this tale. You will evilly laugh at their futile and feeble atte
Here is the recap for our last two sessions. The first one ended up being very short so I decided to lump them together. Previously, the heroes had learned that their neighbors, the Wozer clan, were having trouble with bandits in the Yellow Hills, particularly those led by Angtyr of the Horn, former king of the Balkoth Tribe and Lunar stooge. Egajia, in the name of restoring spiritual balance to the Yellow Hills and neighboring communities, convinced the other PC's to find this man and bring him
For our most recent session, the players took the reins and decided to visit the neighboring Balkoth Tribe. I hadn't really planned for this, but thankfully I had some good material to fall back on from Hearts in Glorantha, with the Balkoth article by Stuart Mousir-Harrison. Erindros' player could not make it for this session either, but since he had a wedding to plan, it was easy to explain his absence.
I usually start off a new season by sharing the local news fro
Sea Season 1615:
We started this session with a few minutes spent on completing the adventurers. Dangsarle had his iron ingot made into plate vambraces and Gaar decided his bronze products also were vambraces. One Orlanthi had to choose subcult (Adventurous) and two adventurers had to make a few adjustments to their characteristics. I also asked the players to think about whether or not their adventurers have wifes and/or children, and decide at the start of next session. Then we were ready
Our most recent session covered the final two contests proposed by Erindros' wife-to-be. Flush from his success at the race, Erindros felt that the next two contests played to his skill-set much better. He would find that they were still not easily won.
The Taming of the Bronze Pig
A few uneventful days followed the race, and the heroes were invited back to Oranvale's farm for another round of competition. She explained that the next challenge involved her family's ancient guardian, th
We now have the protagonists defined: five members of the Saliorson household of the Osmanning bloodline of the Red Cow Clan of the Cinsina Tribe. They all participated in Starbrow’s Revolt and have now fled to Pavis to avoid the repression. The year is 1615.
the two hunter brothers Gaios and Salion, one an Odayla initiate and the other a Yinkin.
Their cousins, the Orlanthi farmer Dangsarle, and his brother the Orlanthi redsmith Gaar.
I played RQ3 back in the 1980-ies. I remember running Apple Lane and Trollpak. I also remember the PCs all died when they attacked a Dream Dragon on their way to Pavis.
I returned to Glorantha with the new edition and ran a play-by-forum game for awhile. We ran through the Apple Lane scenario of the Gamemaster Screen Pack, and I was hooked.
Having found five interested players I've now decided to start a new tabletop campaign. We will play by the new rules, but I've decided to run the
Our most recent session was very eventful. Three of the heroes fought in the Battle of the Queens and survived, only to see Prince Kallyr cut down by Lunar assassins. In the aftermath of Queen Leika leaving for Boldhome with her entourage, Erindros, Garkar, and He Who Spits at the Devil contemplated the future of Sartar. Upon hearing the rumor that Kallyr could not be revived from death, even with the most powerful magics, HWSAD wondered if there were some way to succeed where others had failed.
While I work on the Tragedy of Shargash and the Buraroxi Muskox People writeups (titles pending), here is a teensy thing that was inspired by a discussion in the RuneQuest forum a while ago: when you cast Rune spells during play, what does your character do? Do they literally just say "I cast [spell] for [x] number of Points of Worship"? I prefer to think no, so I came up with this generic prayer that a character (or player, for some extra immersion) could recite fairly quickly. May not fit with
