  1. Was 12 or so I think when I started with D&D. Something like that. Was already a gamer but that was my first RPG.
  2. Be willing to bet a LOT of folks from our age range started with the old D&D blue box! lol
  3. I look forward to getting into some RQ combat shenanigans! It does look like a fun system! Just saying it's not exactly the system for someone whose idea of fun combat is being the 10th level Warrior in magical Plate Mail with 150 hit points plowing through a pack of 20 1Hit Die goblins with 4 hit points each & not taking a scratch because they can't even hit you...This is most definitely not that! I'm glad of it too. Not saying those systems aren't ok when level appropriate challenges are set up by the Game Master. Just saying they often tend to fall into ruts where it's all about fi
  4. Thanks for the replies. Really makes me feel welcome! Did pick up the Bestiary & Glorantha Sourcebook as well & very pleased with both. The GM screen is actually arriving in the mail Monday & look forward to it after seeing some rave reviews regarding the outstanding quality. To be honest, outstanding quality looks like the standard for Chaosium these days! 😊
  5. Haven't done any pnp gaming in years. Looking to get back into it; I recently picked up D&D5e & started working on an alternate Mystara based campaign. Then I stumbled across & purchased RQG...have a feeling my D&D is getting back burnered. lol The setting is so rich that I feel like anything's possible but likely to start out with the quick start scenario just to get my feet wet. Planning to pick up The Smoking Ruin & likely to grab pdf's of old classics & convert as well. Really impressed with the quality of everything I've seen so far & regret getting such a late
  6. Have yet to actually play RQG but DM'd other games extensively in the past. Have ran some pretty lethal scenarios before & my main thing is just having good pre-game communication with the players. Always let them know in advance what they were getting into. Asked them to keep in mind that a hammer is sometimes; but NOT always, the solution to a problem. After being fairly warned, if they still choose to leap headfirst into the Dragon's maw screaming "I'll kill it from the inside!"...well, the results are on them. lol Myself; if someone wants to play a combat heavy game focused on fig
  7. Just arrived. I feel welcome so far! Hopefully that won't change soon. lol 😁
  8. Hello. Old gamer but new to these forums. 50 years old & been a gamer for about 40 of them. Started with blue box D&D & moved on from there. Been away from tabletop gaming for several years but regaining interest now that I finally discovered all the online tools available now. Heard about RuneQuest & Glorantha back in the day but was too broke & too invested in D&D to look into it. That's no longer the case & upon discovering RQG it was almost a no-brainer to check it out. Amazed by the quality of the work & look forward to learning more! Familiar with Chaosium
