    First got into RPGs in 1988 via the Games Workshop version of RuneQuest 3rd edition. Collected pretty much all of the Avalon Hill material but sadly stopped playing RPGs in 1994 when I went to University, and I didn't check back in until the RQG quickstart arrived. With the arrival of the new edition and new material I'm firmly back into Glorantha.

  1. That's the beauty of the Heroquest rules - there really aren't that many of them! The book is 250 pages of mainly background. There isn't really any exclusive content in here, but personally I found the presentation of the information both useful and enlightening and the information is presented in a different way from other books. For example, there are some sample play sessions featuring Samastina and Cragspider, and I loved these more for flavour than for giving an example of the rules. The Heroquest Glorantha book is actually one of my favourite Gloranthan books, from a purely phys
  2. I don't know where you're based OP, but the Heroquest Glorantha book is actually a really good overview source IMO - underrated in fact. It's also one of the best looking books, again IMO. It's also on sale if you're in the UK, EU or Aus. HeroQuest Glorantha - Hardcover - Chaosium Inc.
  3. This is fantastic news. The order of works is a surprise, but it's all good. Very much looking forward to these.
  4. I can't wait either, but I better wait to read it or Trotsky will do terrible things to my PC.
  5. I played in a session at PAX earlier this year which was run on Foundry. The GM, a top bloke called Manuel Molinier, was using Foundry and I believe he said he had built the integration himself. It worked very nicely. There were a few bugs, but it was still a work in progress and I was very impressed.
  6. Welcome @Losky. You may have already seen these, but there are player versions of the maps for the Broken Tower available here. These remove most of the locations which will enable/force your players to explore. Also if you're not already, make sure you use the character sheet for Runequest available within Roll 20 - it's excellent. Have fun.
  7. I thought it went very well Simon, in fact it was excellent. And your advice here is clearly ridiculous. If you don't lick them how do you know what they taste like? Thanks for running the game.
  8. I'm signed up for Trouble at Days Rest tomorrow which I'm very much looking forward to. https://warhorn.net/events/chaosium-online-gaming-at-pax-online/schedule/sessions/e6fd0488-2b12-4942-9948-5fbe4e92a01e Does anyone know which virtual table top system will be used?
  9. My question is would it be considered likely or even possible that an assistant shaman also becomes an initiate of a major Orlanthi cult, such as Orlanth himself? Or are they limited to lay membership? I'm aware that Kolat is considered the Orlanthi shaman tradition cult, but we don't have an RQG writeup for him yet.
  10. So it is. I had completely missed that. I saw the Borderlands & Beyond was in the US so probably just assumed the Cults book was as well. Thanks very much - copy purchased.
  11. You're right, of course, but I feel this is my weakness! Sellers on Amazon inflate to ridiculous levels in my experience. eBay is a better option but there are still slim pickings. Abe Books seems a good place to keep an eye on. Any other locations people are willing to share? (I realise that more experienced collectors are likely to want to guard their resources closely)
  12. Probably not by much. Agree - probably not by much. But I'm interested in what would differ. Heortland is the old country, and the Orlanthi who migrated to what would become Sartar were doing so for reasons of cultural and religious differences and freedoms. Not much will have changed in just 300 years, and Sartar is still reasonably close to Heortland, but I expect there are many subtle differences which to an outsider would seem very small, but to the people in question will seem significant, almost strange.
  13. I would dearly love to be able to get some of the Hero Wars and Hero Quest material, but finding it is a challenge. I did manage to find a battered copy of Glorantha: Introduction to the Hero Wars on eBay, but despite regularly looking I have yet to see any other material.
