    Detailed Maps of Sartar

    Probably 3 days: 1 day to Quackford, 1 day up to the Greydog Inn (assuming your PC's are ok with staying in Greydog territory and don't get into trouble there), and part of a day to Indrodar's Necklace. There would also be rough herding trails leading from Old Man Village up and over the Starfire Ridges - though very tough hikes. Or you could go up the Nymie Vale and stop at either Asborn's Stead or Swan (if you got an early start), then to Runegate, and then down. Avoid the Greydogs that way. Indrodar's Necklace lies with the domains of the Good Sword clan.

    Appeal to Inappropriate Authority is a logical fallacy. Appealing to a very appropriate authority who gives a relevant opinion on the topic is perfectly valid!

    Religious conversion

    It sure did. Ultimately one of the ways that Christianity spread was to adopt local deities and then reinvent them as "Saints". Then years later, when Christianity was established they might drop them or keep them. Some are still "Saint's today.Since the goal was to "save the souls" of the converted, just about any means of doing so were acceptable. The problem with discussing this is that as many of those local deities are still considered saints you risk ruffing some peoples feathers if you question the validity of a popular saint. And then there are a lot of local hero type Saints whose resistance and actions are not really well documented or contradictory or otherwise on shaky ground. But, ultimately as this is a matter of faith, people will often choose to believe in something even if there is little or no evidence to support it. The Holy Grail is a prime example. Sources all indicate that it was based on old Celtic beliefs and that Joseph of Arimathea, if he existed, had nothing to do with it. Yet to the people of Britain and Medieval Europe (and even some people today) it is considered to be a real artifact of Christianity, which might have been kept by the Knights Templar.

    Thanks Jeff, that's fantastic. Looks recent too.

    Thanks! So, looking at other resources, looks like it's north of Greydog on the way to Runegate, near Sword Vale and Sword River. Makes sense! 3 or 4 days travel from Clearwine, or is that too optimistic?

    As @Quackatoa noted, it's Indrodar's Necklace.

    It's Indrodar's Necklace. (Check p. 55.) Edit: I assume Phil might know where that is, but in case it's not on any map to hand: check Phil Anderson's map in Tales of the Reaching Moon 19 (pp. 34-35) and Wyrms Footnotes 15 (pp. 16-17). It's on the eastern edge of the Marsh, between Marshedge and Swordvale.

    Does anyone know where Six Stones, "in Lismelder lands near the Colymar border" is, the nearest Humakt temple to Colymar lands (GM Adventures p14)? Inquiring Hu(ey)makti player wants to know!

    That's why we must pity him. If it was "go buy a 40 year old hard copy on eBay" absolutely. But since the pdf is fully available at Chaosium's site and provides the most complete cult writeups until GoG is available, it's a very reasonable answer.

    APP

    Keep us posted on how using APP and inspiration works. Since I allow traits and passions as the source of inspiration, I am interested in determining whether Attributes can also be used as one.

    What Was Constantine Thinking?

    Thanks, and hope you find a lot of things that will give you more thought as you go through it. In regards to Constans, Greg never gave me clear understanding of what he thought, but he directed me towards certain sources to ensure I had them when writing. You must remember also, the Constantin was not the first choice for Kingship. It was first offered to King Aldronius of Brittany who defered it to his younger brother. So, this may also be in Constantin's thinking - it is not necessarily first born who would make the best king. Mull over that for a few...

    I have somewhere a photocopy of an inofficial detailed (as in height lines) map of Jonstown and environs, monochrome, which I suspect to be the master for the colored Culbrea map above. While I appreciate the general terrain detail, even in a sandbox setting I reserve the right to edit certain places with additional steads or huts, and declare others to be ruins, as my scenario needs go. You won't be able to pick out the ruins of Argrath's home stead in Prince of Sartar in any map showing the Orlmarth clan lands (yet). They might be interesting to find (and interview possible ghosts of the Lunar patrolmen slain there, possibly summon and bind them).

    Might want to research and see if any pagan stuff made it into Roman Christianity...

    Know your enemy, that's what this thread is for. GMs, know what your munchkins will do. Munchkins, prepare for the GM's slap-downs.

    Don't worry about it. Some people have far too much time on their hands, fortunately for us.

    So basically, if you use Chaosium's old Thieves World box as Refuge in Glorantha for expeditions to the Machine Ruins, you cover almost the entire roleplayer fan base (as Chaosium was a Californian company at the time they produced the Thieves World box - though not southern).

    Google doesn't offer a definition, but I was as mildly amused as I was mildly peeved to get this search result: https://www.google.com/search?q=define:munchkinnery&client=firefox-b-d&sa=N&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=Ym97D78cw45k8M%3A%2CE913oLrN5tg5aM%2C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kTpZ2qoeQKdoF62cR3vXHkdqKnDbg&ved=2ahUKEwiGwZG07uDhAhXS26QKHTz5A3I4ChD1ATAAegQICRAE&biw=1048&bih=779#imgrc=Ym97D78cw45k8M: (If you can't be bothered to click that monstrosity of a link, it shows the J on green ground, as in my profile picture...) There is this old piece that contrasts the Real Man, Real Roleplayer, the Clown and the Munchkin types of roleplayers - to my knowledge the original application of the term to roleplaying.

    Not entirely sure where "munchkin" comes historically from but it refers to someone who is all about what they can get for their character in terms of loot, skill, and pluses. It's what the Steve Jackson "Munchkin" game is all about. I should point out that I usually don't play a munchkin, but dabbling in munchkinnery can be fun from time to time. The fact that you may find that my RQG characters just happen to have quite a few stats at 13 is total coincidence.
