  • RPG Biography
    Played my first RPG in 1977, moved to RuneQuest very quickly. Ran the Convulsion Convention 1992 to 2002 with a large Chaosium presence. I have writing credits for HQ2 Glorantha Publications, the Guide to Glorantha, notably in the Wastelands chapter and am one of the co-authors of HeroQuest Glorantha, and credits in RQG. Have run a weekly RPG club since 1989. My favourite games are HeroQuest Glorantha, Traveller (MegaTraveller engine), Torg 1ed, Exalted 2ed, Pendragon, 3:16, DramaSystem and various campaigns using HeroQuest 2. I'm slowly writing a Prax book, which is turning out to be more complex than I thought.

    I've two accounts on BRPcentral. This is my fan account, my work account is @scotty. I've played most, maybe all of the Chaosium era BRP based games, my favourites are: RuneQuest, Ringworld and Call of Cthulhu. I also enjoyed Stormbringer, Elric and Future World, less so ElfQuest and SuperWorld...

  1. Of course it was Argrath, Brabonry Chief-priest, New Jonston, in 1892 says that he dragon did not exist before, and came to Argrath’s summons.
  2. Mob's old site is archived in the Well of Daliath: https://wellofdaliath.chaosium.com/wp-content/uploads/mrmob/thegettingofwisdom.htm
  3. No browser - as a Java App. https://www.java.com/en/ direct from oracle, Click here to download the zipped Ephemeris java app, unzip and run the EphemerisII.class file (on a Mac running Big Sur).
  4. I've just checked that this venerable Java app still works - and it does, get it here. (your experience may vary...)
  5. Looking at his early life answers some of this. His earliest Dragon encounters are in the Wastes. I have him on his Praxian initiation doing an as yet undiscovered Task of Waha, Waha and the Dragon, at the taboo Dragonteeth hills. Although taboo for Praxians, he's not yet one. so not taboo for him. At the Dragonteeth Hills he meets Meeting All Eyes Open But One, and receives the Dragon tooth warriors. Yazurkial Blue Llama is also there on his khan making, Yazurkial later brings the Shadow Dragon to the Moonfall. I can only speculate as to what happened at the meeting with Dragon, but I suspect
  6. There's a short scenario based on the Nymie Vale one in Sartar Rising Part 3, Gathering Thunder. It's now marked as Manor ruins on the Colymar Tribes map. It's near-ish to apple lane. Sartar KoH gives more details on its operator, Overovashtells. It also tells us the second one was in lower Streamvale. The Crescent Manor is in Limelder lands, details in Wyrms Footnotes 15, Sartar companion,
  7. From a roleplaying perspective, why not use what's there to expand your gameplay. You can play it anyway you like in your game. My players enjoy the idea that their roleplaying actions contribute to the overall setting.
  8. That's correct, they don't pay tithes on the herd. It goes straight to the temple and goes to look after everyone. The income supports their lifestyle as per page 406:
  9. Of course I'm not sure. Fortunately it's not explicit in the rules, so allows a roleplaying opportunity rather than the mechanistic you pay 10% of your money at the end of the year, blah. blah, blah. It encourages players to develop their adventurers, gaining wealth by keeping animals and having families to manage those resources. We already have a temple budget on page 406. Here's what the two Storm Bull Players in our group came up with (handy having an accountant in the group, who can quickly make stuff up) : 150 Hiording initiates, 1 Bull priest (and one nearly Bull pries
  10. Click on the collection button, then +Add In edit macro \\ NOW SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE WINDOW, make it visible to all players, save Changes In the Macro window, make sure Show quick macro bar is ticked and In Bar is ticked In your main window, you can move them to the order you want using a tab on the right side side and change their colour by cmd clicking / right clicking
  11. and that's how to play it. My players quickly realised that the sacrifices count as cult tithes. If a Storm Bull warrior earns 60 L a year and gives 1/10 a year to their khan, that's 6L. They can sacrifice 1 L per seasonal holy ceremony day. So they take 10 chickens to each ceremony, i give him +10% as it's 10, not 1 chicken. Who doesn't like chicken? The Orlanth Thane, takes a sheep to each one from his herd.
  12. No. Page 141 If it happens in down time (5 out of 8 weeks), making them roll won't add fun to the game.
  13. Unless you are a cult that specifically guards members of other cults - Babeester Gor for example.
  14. I use Roll20 and Zoom at the same time. I use the adventure straight from the book beside me, and keep the PDFs open in the background. I use Roll20 to manage the RQ character sheets (my players like them) and to manage dice rolls from the sheets (my players like the dice roller). I've set up some generic dice rollers as macros on the bottom of the screen (shared with the players). For movement on maps when needed I use Roll20 as well. The RQG sheets can be setup for full characters (4 pages), an NPC sheet (below) and Quickstart. For everything else I use zoom, better sound and video
