    Creatures in Pamaltela

    You will find a version for few of those in the Encounter Generator. Should be easy to mod if and when needed - they are for d100 based game anyway. The following are missing from there Andrewsarchus, Arctodus, Arsinoitherium, Eland, field elephant, Fire Wren, Fish Eagle, Frog, Giant Sloth, Gigantopithecus, Gomphotheres, Green Heron, Hippopotamus, Homotherium, Milk Antelope, Sivatherium, Stegodon, Sun Fish People, Trihorn rhinoceros, Warthog, Wildebeest Where did you get the above list, some of those I do not recognise. Generator should contain almost all of the Anaxial and other published stats in d100 format. --h

    Noble titles in Glorantha

    Looking for a variety of noble titles used in the various societies of Glorantha. I think there must have been variety of different title names. For Fonrit I have been using various Middle Eastern noble ranks. For the western perhaps the standard medieval ones will do. What are ones you see fit for the various regions. Fonrit Umathela Western Sartar Lunar Esrolia

    Military Ranks in Glorantha

    Looking for a variety of military ranks used in the various armies of Glorantha. I think there must have been variety of different title names possibly corresponding to the normal Sergeant, Master Sergeant, Captain, Major, General or similar. Fonritan Armies Umathelan Armies Western armies Sartar army Lunar army Esrolian Armies

    Khopesh stats

    In AiG it was 1d8 Medium Size and reach. Disarm and Bludgeon as the specialties. 4 Armor points and 6 hit points with 1 enc. Compared to broadsword same damage, same size and reach. Broadsword was bleed and impale. Armor 6 points and 10 hitpoints with enc 2. Battleaxe 1h Damage 1d6+1, same size and reach. Bleed and sunder. Armor 4 points, 8 hit points, 1 enc. Different d100 system but may give you way to compare and decide what you want to do with RQG....

    The RQ Encounter Generator

    Quite a bit I guess - it has been asked maybe 2-4 times - once a year during the last 4-5 years tool has been in existence. The developer (skoll) considers this to be pretty much feature complete. So do I - pretty much. If there is additional development - there are some things that I would consider to help more than trying to create extra complexity and work in trying to maintain a portable version. The technology would need to be different. It will not be uptodate with the templates and features that are constantly being updated. Currently there are no major bugs - it works on its own. I am involved in another tool (campaign logger) that has portable and internet versions separate. The portable version has not been developed for awhile as most players in most occasions have internet access - so the web version has large variety of features not existing in portable ones. And that is small commercial product... Why would you want to have portable. It is portable enough already - using it constantly on my iPad - it just requires the internet connection. If you cannot have internet connection - it is super easy to prepare for session by generating enough opponents before hand of any kind whatsoever. I have a small folder of them printed out just in case - any permanent ones I could also store as pdf in Evernote or file folders. For example for city - few encounters before hand, for jungle - few human, few animal, few monsters, for a forbidden temple - few guards, few monsters, the big baddie and so on... The thing with having the printed ones out is that you can mark them during the melee (hit points, conditions etc...) In Mythras it is hard to have several melees in a night - so few ready made printed or pdf should be enough. If you are going to a cottage for a week of gaming and no internet there - again it is easy to prep beforehand - printing larger amount or pdf:ing larger amount.

    RQ6 GM Screen

    Healing Charts Refined for Mythras The Healing and Wounds chart has been revamped. The new version has the Healing & Medicine spirits and Cure Malady Runespell effects added. The spirit rules contain interpretation from the design mechanism forums how one should heal poison with the spirits. Also the rules page references to Mythras 3rd printing were added. There was also some tuning for readability. The new version of the chart is here. It is also available in the Mythras chart pages. https://notesfrompavis.blog/2018/12/02/healing-charts-refined-for-mythras/

    RQ6 GM Screen

    For the crunchy awesome bits added three new charts Crunch Mode in Mythras - Combat Effects of Weapon / Shield Sizes and Reach Here are some crunchy bits from Mythras. The optional rules for weapon range effects on combat can produce additional tactical choices. To help the tacticians among you to do some optimizing without doing mathematics here are some tables for you I combined experimentally all the weapon size and reach information to provide easy look up tables for what weapons are effective for closing to short distance or opening to longer distance. The tables should contain all the weapons in Mythras, Monster Island, AiG and the Eastern Weapons charts. So for example from the "Shorter Weapons Reach" table you can see that if attacker closes in with one handed mace to inside the effective reach of long spear - the long spear user cannot parry and its size is considered to be small (drops two sizes) so the long spear in defense will only stop half the damage. In addition when the long spear user tries to attack it will give max 1d3+1 damage and its size is reduced by 2 - so even a small weapon will stop all the damage and mace is medium in size. Normally mace could only stop half the damage from long spear. But if the attacker can keep the attacker at its long range ("Longer Weapon Reach") - mace can only attack the spear itself while long spear user could use the long spear normally. This can be quite interesting when attacker closes in to unarmed combat. I also created a "parry and passive blocking to stop Damage" table to show how various defenders' weapons are effective in blocking the attackers weapon - either in a parry or in passive blocking. These are included also in the Mythras Charts page https://notesfrompavis.blog/2018/12/01/crunch-mode-in-mythras-combat-effects-of-weapon-shield-sizes-and-reach/ Feedback and play testing / debugging help welcome...

    Fonritian Timeline

    I think my list is supposed to have all these but it is on purpose randomized what comes up for esch generation. Have to reverify against Dave’s list. I will make my random gen available in some form eventually.... currently it is not ’productized’ and bloody ugly run script from rubymine at local computer

    Fonritian Timeline

    If I recall correctly the events come from common uncommon rare events added adjusted by random city from area. The first part after sibling category is my ’creation’ . They are left sometimes at murky level for player to decide which dide his relative was on and what was the particular deed in detail that he participated in. This has been used creatively by players so far...

    Fonritian Timeline

    https://notesfrompavis.blog/2017/04/15/fonrit-background-and-culture-for-players/ In addition to this I have made a background history generator for Fonrit that generates a short history for your family line using timelines and events from GtG and other sources. the histories are inlikely to repeat so they can be used also for major NPCs.The histories can be used as a starting point. i will post examples when I get back to my computer. This is not yet published as it is running in ruby on my Mac. I have also created with campaign-logger description generators for Fonritans. I will post some examples later. In addition to this encounter generator creates pregens for Fonritans that can likely be modded to RQG with some handwaving https://notesfrompavis.blog/2017/04/14/pregenerated-characters-for-fonrit/ Will gladly compare notes...
