    I played Dungeons and Dragons back in the eighties. I ran across Runequest one summer and was hooked on the Brp system. Occasionally, I play other systems when I have to, but I have always preferred d100 games.

  1. The cover art looks brilliant. Hard to see particularly well from the pic, but very evocative.
  2. After a pretty much a quarter century away from Glorantha, I am now running a campaign in Apple Lane. Athough I played a lot of Runequet 2 in high school we always focused on Prax and Pavis. I had never had the chance to go through or GM the Iconic Battle at Gringle's Pawnshop. I wanted to run a quick scenario so it seemed like the perfect thing. It went pretty well and now has turned into a weekly thing with a lot of steam. I was not sure how much longevity the game would have so I started with Openquest, which is really quick and easy to build characters and introduce the system. I did add hit locations though because it seems to add so much to the visualization of the fighting and draws new players in nicely. For characters I use 1/2 hit points for each location ( major wounds), rather than the normal brp hits per location. As we have gone along I have introduced more and more elements of Runequest 2 (Weapon Damage, Resistance charts, experience based skill increases, and Pow gain rolls). I have also added some loose stuff on passions and the runes that they can stress to get extra adds or spell-like abilities (from Uncounted Worlds and RQ 6). These have worked great and really draw out roleplaying of the characters. Each night I explain a new rule or two that we tack on. Characters are now through most of the Rainbow Caves , finally beating Whiteye and his gang. They just made friends with the Newtlings and defeated the Spirits of the Rock Lizard. I tried RQ2 spirit combat with Rock lizards and that did not go very well. (I love the idea of spirit combat, but it always causes problems in actual play for some reason). Several players were twiddling their thumbs while others were struggling for their lives. I really need to dig through different rule sets and find a good way to do this. Otherwise things are great. It is a lot of fun seeing a whole bunch of new people experiencing the old Runequest/BRP vibe for the first time.
  3. Woo Hoo! This looks like a lot of fun! Glad to see it coming to fruition.
  4. Thanks for posting this. This kind of thing is really handy.

  6. If you are still looking for Black/Green shard the Green monograph is just such a world and loaded with ideas for a forest style world. Here is some free stuff that may give you a few ideas for the setting http://basicroleplaying.org/files/category/60-the-green/ It started as kind of a group project here where a bunch of us were each going to create a different style of world.

  15. I did consider it for a while and actually got a ways into rewriting the Green for Openquest (The more I worked with Openquest the more I dug that system and found it easy to work with). It seemed like I was going back to square one again though. I also was about halfway through writing a larger campaign for the Green detailing the Sable River. After a while both projects kind of bogged down. Who knows though... I still think that someday I may journey back to the forests of the Green. I certainly had a ball writing it.
