  1. Sorry for putting this question forward so late in this thread - and it is totally possible I anger someone with me asking it here (apologies for that) - but will you have something like Unearthed Arcana's "Method V" ability (characteristic) rolling method inluded in the Unearthed Companion?
  2. Many great tips and tricks here! I apologize for not replying earlier. I get no notifications on my email on replies here, got to change that! Anyway, right now I am tinkering with the idea of maybe including "Schadenfreude" among the traits. Mostly because I hate it so much. It's a truly evil thing IMO.
  3. Thanks! Yes I recognized quite a few influences from the Manichean ideas being inherent in Kult.
  4. I googled the word Manichean . Clearly stuff there that I had never heard off! Nice. Thanks again!
  5. Thank you so much! This is clearly illuminating throught the lenses of Japanes feudality. Interesting. I also like the basic equipment packages for different classes. AD&D alignments works well, atleast for the worlds of Greyhawk and such. Historically (as I am to be sixty in a little over four years) I always felt the matrix to be too stiff for my game, but I am not really updated with later versions of D&D/AD&D. What I am looking for is more in line with how the Warhammer Fantasy literature describes in what ways the forces of the Immaterium affects the human vices. Things like Lust, Ambition, Envy and such, but at the same time not too much like the Seven Deadly Sins. What is Manichean? You have to excuse me, I am Swedish, so my English is only so good. Many thanks for this input! //Erik
  6. Hello! I have been tinkering with my own BRP-based RPG-system and world for eons it seems. The main story is about to be transformed into a scenario, but the main question now, is: If I want to use personality traits for characters in my game (à la King Arthur Pendragon and Paladin: Warriors of Charlemagne) but NOT necessarily emphasize only chevaleresque traits and/or traits that is in line with purely christian virtues, so what kind of OTHER virtues should/could I use? Please help! //Erik.
  7. Very nice thought and plans! Thanks so much for reminding of that great mind, a huge loss to the community! //Erik.
  8. There's now a new release where one can turn on an English text, as per usual way on Youtube.
  9. The film is certainly a reasonable stab at possibilities of making a good Cthulhu movie of the North. Who knows, maybe a second kickstarter for the movie will come afterwards?
  10. My god, Julian Lord, so much whining on some details about whether the Vingan warrior can or cannot carry that much weight on a single spear. So what!? What does it matter? Do you play the RQ game the same way you nitpick on that nicely made painting? In that case, you sir, are known as a rules lawyer and a royal pain in the a**. I would really think twice before having you in any playing group, in that case. Lighten up! The painting gives so much other marvelous feelings one can celebrate. And why not focus on those parts instead? I can think of at least a dozen fine things the picture conveys important and beautiful points to the viewer. And the most important part for me, is that this is a painting portraying a real woman fighter - totally free of the irritating tradition of boob plate! //Erik.
  11. Why not kill off the whole Wyter idea? For me, Runequest and Glorantha is NEVER about min-maxing and finding the cracks in the rules, it's about experiencing a world with islands such as QAPHQA and exploring them and having fun with your friends. Power gaming is so far from what RQ and Glorantha should be.
  12. Excuse me for necroing this thread, but I would certainly be interested in any notes made on this (or pics of them). I am just now buying both hardbacks, and am planning to run it with RQG. So any conversion/planning notes or anything like it hemping in this would really be appreciated!
  13. Yes! You are totally right. I thought about the fact that the occupations probably all have about the same total points summary when taking in all the skills. So I was about to change it but had not gotten to it. I will compare the total worth of points from other occupations and heighten the moneymaking skills also.
  14. Well put my dear sir! Yes, I concur, the Adventurer creation system is meant to be just that in my book too. OK, this may change my stance on certain parts of this additional occupation. But I am not totally beyond including it though.
  15. But then the qualification is handled during character generation, and not during play? Or am I mistaken?
