  1. Thanks for the sneak peek! Looking forward to that box set.
  2. This was all very helpful! Thanks for taking the time to answer everybody.
  3. Cool! Thanks for the clarification.
  4. As I explore Dragon Pass with my players, we have realized that we are not entirely clear on what thanes do in an Orlanthi community. From the guide... "They are tribal folk who have leadership roles (secular, military, or sacred) and have undertaken unusual responsibilities. They are the heads of households, the god-talkers who lead sacred functions, leading merchants or craftspeople, bodyguard housecarls for the chieftain, and members of the clan council." Would a town (300 - 1000 residents) have one Thane overseeing the major decisions that need to occur in the town? Or woul
  5. Thanks for the ideas! I've decided to go with the harvest queen/ceremonial marriage approach as presented by jajagappa. I'll give my ernaldan initiate a chance to compete in being chosen to be the harvest queen in the early days of the ritual. Her mother will put pressure on her to participate, but if she chooses not to, then she will play a role in helping to judge the young suitors to see if they are suitable. I've written in a couple of ways this ceremony can go sideways.... A group of Lunars (gasp!) has infiltrated the festival. Their goal is to sabotage the ritual so bad
  6. Thank you for the posts! This has all been very helpful!
  7. Looking at the calendar in the gamemaster pack has revealed to me that there is series of Ernalda holy days throughout Fertility week of Earth season. One of my players is an up and coming priestess of Ernalda being groomed by her mother to succeed her when she retires. My player noticed this week long holy day and was essentially like "Can this be an adventure? I think my character would want to be super-involved in this event." The questions I am putting out to the experienced runequest community is this. "What are the major events that occur on an Ernaldan holy day? Especially thi
  8. Woah! That is a cool article. I had no idea that so few of the population were initiated into minor cults!
  9. Perfect! I'm finding this information helpful. It's giving me a rough idea about the scale a town needs to be to support a temple.
  10. As part of my runequest campaign I've been working on building a random town generator. I'm curious as to what the density of temples is like in dragon pass. I've been going off of the town sizes found in Guide to Glorantha village (<500), town (300-1000), small city (500 - 6000), large city (6000 - 25000), metropolis (25 000 +) Do villages usually only have shrines? If so, to how many gods? Would a town only support one minor temple? How many shrines could be found? In small cities, do we start to see major temples? If so how many? Are there minor temples as well? In
  11. I love this discussion. It should be noted that this might be a cultural solution to a lot of potential conflict problems. If you can find a family tie between clans, it might result in an inter-clan dispute being resolved more "peacefully" than otherwise.
  12. Good idea g33k! That's inspired me to modify and make my own family history charts.
  13. I love this discussion. I've been spending a long time thinking about how I want more RPG's to be about inward growth rather than outward domination. It's one of the reasons I've made the switch from DnD to Runequest. I feel like there's more room for that kind of storytelling in Runequest. I really think Heartquintessence's idea is moving strongly in the right direction.
  14. Once again, thanks for all of the suggestions everybody! I feel like I have an endless amount of movies to watch now.
  15. Thank you everybody! This is really helpful! That traditional symbols book looks really handy...
