  1. I bought a second copy of Magic World for similar reasons... keeping a spare copy, just in case. I don't feel any compunction to 'move on' when a game I like stops being supported by its publisher. Magic World sits in a really nice place for me, between Openquest and Mythras in complexity... and not tied to a specific setting... and I don't see anything coming along to replace it in the near future. Though if someone were to write up more creatures, spells or an adventure for it, that would be great. As it is, it's not too much trouble at all to pull in stuff from other D100 games... or ev

  2. Yeah I'm still playing Elric! and that hasn't been supported for years. I have two copies, which helps to reduce wear. Plus I only play about once a month. 😥

  3. Here is the updated Mythology section of the Yelmalio cult: BEFORE TIME Yelmalio was born when Yelm was murdered by Orlanth, as a blindingly bright glare of magnificence which radiated from Yelm like light from the sun. He became known as the Little Sun or “Yelmalio”, although he has been given many other names and titles. Confronted by a broken world, Yelmalio remained true, though it cost him dearly to do so. During the early wars in which mortals supported their gods, Yelmalio led his people from the warm lowlands into the cold hills, carrying high the magic and power of his

  4. RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha has some nice two-page maps of both Dragon Pass and Boldhome. Will these be made available as single sheet PDFs in high resolution for printing? Something suitable for 34" x 22" so everyone at the table can see it? Maybe I am missing a download of them somewhere? Thanks!

  6. I'm looking to put together a Ralios campaign (probably focused around Safelster for the most part) and, after reading through the Guide, Argin Terror and Tinaros strike me as two very undefined areas but very cool ones nonetheless. This is mostly just me putting some thoughts up and looking for criticism / comments. Argin Terror & Tinaros Argin Terror is known as the Nightmare Sorcerer or the Son of the Devil. He is the titular ruler of Tinaros due to his lack of interest in mundane affairs resulting a series of ambitious tyrants ruling the city for him. He is the son of the wid

  7. I think I said it in another topic, but I really like when they offered the Sartar maps in really high resolution in a separate file. It did cost a few dollars, but for me it was totally worth it. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/68926/Sartar-Campaign-Pack

  8. This isn't dice-related, but I use a box of Go stones during game. I gave the players three stones as their hero points for the game. When they spend one, they hand it to me and I ask "what does this look like?" which gives them a chance to briefly narrate their impressive effort. It lets the player control some of the color of the game. During extended contests, each time one side or the other scores RPs, I put a stone in the appropriate pile--it lets the players easily see where the contest is at.

  9. i fail to see what the entire quote is adding to the question: I picked the section that clarified the whole thing. And, of course dropping a score of 120% down to 100% is a modification ... you've just modified it. In RQ it's your final score that counts to determined special, critical or fumble results, it's always been like this and I have no clue why it's confusing to you.

  10. No, it only proves that someone needed it clarified for them. Sometimes something crystal clear to others is totally mystifying to me. Times like those, someone explaining how it works helps. Doesn't mean the rules need clarifying, just means it wasn't clear to me. that's why we ask questions on forums.

  11. I have no idea on who is responding to who but I think that we can all agree that it's a great thing that BRP is out there. Even though Elric!/Magic World is the superior rules set. No judgement though.

  12. You seem to have been confused by RQ gaming discussions that go on. Which is understandable because there's so much Gloranthan crossover between game systems. So I don't think anyone referring to Borderlands or Sun County to start off would have been talking about HQG. This would have been an RQ discussion. As I said, that's an easy mistake to make because often people start a discussion without saying which Gloranthan gaming systen they're referring to. Ian has given you the steer on this above from the HQG perspective. Sorry that you've had so much confusion.

  13. A Delicate Morsel Later that hot and humid evening, under the dark of the moon, Samuel Scarlett, Henry Ravens, Americus Leftwich and Temperance Gresham made a dinner of victuals from the Virginia upon a small cook-fire to be washed down with a wooden flagon of small beer reluctantly meted out to them as new arrivals at a costly half-angel apiece, hard for light purses to bear. There was a young girl close at hand with her family, barely more than a child. The smell of the food cooking made her stomach rumble and she apologized, embarrassed. "Begging your pardon, my masters," she sa

  14. For HQG, we would recommend starting with The Coming Storm and The Eleven Lights for your Dragon Pass campaign. Advice from RQ grognards on the scenarios they enjoyed 'back in the day' are not good sign posts for how to play HQG. Once you have played that material, you should be in a better position to assess how to use older material from the Hero Wars line, or even from RQG. My summary would be that the 'setting' material from RQG supplements has value, but the scenarios have less utility. Certainly something like Apple Lane, or Snakepipe Hollow can't be played well with HQG, but you co

  15. It would appear that you erred on that part David. The section on sorcery page 389 says: This jibes with the pregenerated character Sorala, who knows Truth and Command and 3 spells. However, a philosopher seems to have access to more spells than a scribe. While Philosopher gives access to a rune and a technique per page 70: The Lhankor Mhy cult does state on page 76: So this can be interpreted as the one rune and one technique a philosopher starts with having to be Truth and Command if they are Lhankor Mhy. But this is probably NOT how it is done when

  16. I've tended to move to run Group Simple Contests one by one. Even though the individual contest happens simultaneously it usually makes story sense to roleplay each contest. That way the last person rolling might turn the tables of the whole contest. About the tricks you requested. I made this handy table to use with players new to HQ. It has been really useful and the players get the system better. Maybe someday I can write it into a printable format.

  17. They laid the ground work in the Bestiary for how Dragonewts evolve. They have opposing passions instead of opposing runes. From the Bestiary: Once they reduce each passion to 0% they then evolve into the next stage of evolution and each stage has a set of five opposing passions.

An impressive performance - it's interesting seeing how the ENnie awards have evolved from what used to be very d20-based... seeing Chaosium perform so well is also satisfying - for so many years they were a company that could get out a single product per year if they were lucky." https://19thlevel.blogspot.com/2018/08/the-elder-gods-reign-supreme-in-2018.html

  19. Hi, I am not sure this is a typo but... p 215 - the Cuirass Turtleshell only costs 15 L (and reiterated on page 216) but has the same AP (4) as Ring Mail which costs 50 L and Light Scale which costs 25 L but has no negative Move Quietly modifier whereas Ring Mail and Light Scale have -5 and -10 respectively .... so why would anyone but anything but Turtleshell? Is the price correct?
