  • RPG Biography
    I began playing RQ2 in a very, very large campaign out of a game shop while in high school. I pretty much immediately started a Boldhome-based campaign for my high school friends, which ran for several years. I started another Boldhome-based campaign in college that ran well passed graduation. I moved away from my players in 1999 and lost touch with Runequest until after Greg Stafford's passing, when I started looking into how it had changed. During the pandemic my college gaming group started chatting online and it was a short leap from that to a new campaign. I have spent a good part of the last 3 months catching up on all the great Glorantha stuff I've missed!

    I have a fledgling RQG campaign with 7 players. They are all Hiording clanspeople trying to make sense of the chaos that is post-Dragonrise Sartar. I previously played many, many RPGs of the 80s and 90s, but Runequest was always my favorite. Other favorites included Paranoia, Pendragon, Bushido, Ars Magica, and Superworld.

    I am an archivist and administrator by trade, both of which help me as an RQ fan and GM.

  1. Yeah, Detect/Find Poison doesn't work for me. For me a "substance" has to be objective. Things that are poisonous to you might not be poisonous to another person (e.g. poison ivy) or to another type of creature (dog, elf, etc.). Almost nothing is poisonous to a troll. Any oil would be poisonous to either swallow or get into your bloodstream, so every lamp is gonna show. Heck, every metal is poisonous if you eat/drink enough it or get it into your bloodstream. In fact, water is poisonous if you drink enough of it, every few years you hear of someone dying from it (usually as a result of hazing)
  2. Is there a version of the calendar that this works on? There are no layers on the one that came with the box set/GM screen.
  3. I'm curious what substances GMs and players have used for the Detect and Find (Substance) spells. Iron, gold, and water are the most obvious to me. But copper, silver, aluminum, and lead might be popular. Hazia, perhaps. Something like truffles, ginger, or other hard to find commodity. Specific rare and valuable gemstones. Truestone, perhaps? Crystals? I assume that this could not find specific creatures, such as a wolf or a broo. Find blood or fur might work, but would get many creatures great and small in the area (just as I assume wood would detect an elf but not differentiate them fro
  4. A question from one of my players as we prepare for their first heroquest: How does time work in the Before Time plane that they will be adventuring in? He is specifically interested in spell durations and how Extension would work, or if the spell is even possible.

    The Boranini River stretches off the Creek into the Arfritha Vale. Would Boranini likely be a naiad child of Engizi, similar to Nymie?
  6. I think Glorantha is easy to play in but hard to GM, like EPT (I really miss playing in Tekumel!). For someone completely new to RQ, the GM boxed set that includes the main book, Bestiary, and GM Adventures and Six Seasons in Sartar from the Jonstown Compendium would give you what you need to get started! And to start the addiction that will make you buy more stuff! 🙂
  7. Ah, right! Now that I've reviewed my KoS, is there anything on the pre-Argrath history of the White Bull out there? Is anything written about how Argrath found the White Bull or how it involved dragons, as the brief mention in the character generation implies?
  8. On the RQG character generation charts, it says that the White Bull Society was founded in 1616 by a Bison Tribe slave. Where can I find information on this period between the founding and the acknowledgment of Argrath as the White Bull?
  9. Are there any breakdowns of the relative cult affiliations of a Praxian Tribe, similar to what we have seen for specific Sartar clans or cities? I'm specifically interested in the Bison Tribe, but any non-Lunar Tribe would be useful. Thanks!
  10. Just to complicate matters: Is there a goddess attached to domesticated ducks (NOT Durulz!)?
  11. Are those travel times assuming mounted or foot?
  12. How would someone best get to Nochet from the Apple Lane area and how long would it take? My guess is to catch a boat, or series of boats, from Clearwine down. Or take the roads down from Jonstown to Smithstone and get a boat from there? Skirt the Upland Marsh from Runegate down to Creek-Stream River?
  13. Okay, now she HAS to become Prince after Kallyr dies! 🙂
  14. Use the Orchards map as a good map of some other village. It is definitely NOT Apple Lane!
