    Greg Stafford Condolence Thread

    Absolutely beautiful and reassuring and comforting obituary. I never met Greg Stafford. I wasn't even aware that he was a big influence on me. I always thought the passing of David Bowie and other "big names"would be a big deal to me. But that wasn't the case. When the news hit me that Greg Stafford was gone I felt an empty space inside me and then I had the surprising realization of the extent of his quiet (amazingly positive) influence on me! I have read every heartfelt comment in this thread and the obituary that his family has made is a beautiful gemstone. Thankyou everyone!

    So many errors and contradictions

    I hear you. The writer himself was responding to some of your questions so that's probably why there was defensiveness! Once the non-writer Chaosium'ites got into the thread a solution was set up pretty quickly! Anyway, I Enjoyed some of your threads here and it sounded like you were setting up some wild rides so sorry to see you go!

    So many errors and contradictions

    You mean their stance of immediately setting up a thread where clarification questions can be asked in order to create an official errata/clarification document? That sounds pretty good to me. There don't seem to be all that many people THAT bothered by the bugs - especially with Chaosium being willing to sort them out.

    Reskinning Cults

    Oh I definitely agree! The Troll wanting to eat the Elf is good for the story.

    Reskinning Cults

    Of course that elf should be killed! That is good roleplaying. The story will have to define the reasons why the Troll Shouldn't kill the Elf.

    Reskinning Cults

    Humakt is a pretty common choice for player character. If my Humakti character was face to face with a necromancer PC then the necromancer would be dead - table etiquette and hospitality rules be damned!!! Truth is Truth and Death is Death. So having this necromancer among PCs could create opportunities for all sorts of fun crazy stories as the necromancer tries to keep his/her "gifts" secret etc - possibly even using the powers to save those who would find those powers abhorrent. But there is never going to be a situation in which the "warrior" humakti, the "healer" and the necromancer "magic user" go into a Troll "dungeon" together and openly use their powers to mutual benefit. The necromancer PC is the Humakti PC's #1 enemy. Could get interesting!

    Reskinning Cults

    You might be able to filch a bit of inspiration from the Vivamort cult too.

    Upcoming Adventure Plans

    Snakepipe Hollow is pretty big. I'd love to see a completely different part of it explored. But the original was Greg Stafford's work. It'll be a tough act to follow!! Speaking of this, does G.S. still write content/scenarios or does he just oversee the franchise now?

    GM Screen Pack coming in PDF on September 14

    Seax's were made from metal. The blade in the picture has been knapped so it will definitely chonchoidally fracture in all directions if it impacts with anything hard. I'm guessing Gloranthan obsidian is magic.

    Obsidian would break on impact. It's clearly made from charcoal..

    Robin Laws to pen two RuneQuest Books

    i think they are talking about deadwood in the sense of it being a conGREGation of riffraff beyond the reach of law and order. everything iS in flux. no one is in conTrol. anything goes. a sAloon owner seems to call the shots. then another saloon owner rolls into town and the whole dynamic changes. iF pavis, Free Of it's "occupied city" naRrative, is like this then it Defo get's a thumbs up from me!

    Totally THIS! Glorantha got a bit too serious for me! And Quakatoa, I would totally buy this kinda thing in some kind of supplement with scenarios.
