  1. I used the German word "Götterschüler" in a campaign, as a description for people who wanted to learn from the gods in order to become as powerful as gods.
  2. And in the southern Alps, especially in Tyrol, an Ork is a kind of mountain spirit.
  3. Since the character already suffers from herpetophobia it could be interesting to introduce a curse which turns her slowly into a snake like creature, beginning with a more and more scaly skin, a tongue which begins to fork, and so on, until she finally becomes a servant creature controlled by Yig.
  4. My favourite settings from the 1970s fantasy literature would be Pern (Anne McCaffrey) and Gwynedd (Deryni series, Katherine Kurtz). A long time ago I ran a Pern campaign with the RQ rules, it worked surprisingly well.
  5. I would think so, mainly because the Sailor profession and the NPC Sailor/Pirate example as well as the optional rules for ships do not mention any other ship related skill. Besides, introducing an additional skill for navigation would seem like skill creep to me, and therefore against the spirit of the comparatively rules-light Renaissance game.
  6. The friends of House Lichtenstein still remain somewhat suspicious concerning the reasons why House Lichtenstein became extinct soon after a member of House Rot (and his wolf) visited Castle Lichtenstein in 1850.
  7. The wolf is included in the pact. The discerning male witch insists on a wolf of the type Canis lupus lycaon.
  8. You could take a look at this here: http://www.apuritansmind.com/apologetics/mcmahonmiraclesandtheresurrection/
  9. I think the proper thing to do for the Doctor would be to report the alchemist to the authorities so that he can be put on trial for devil worship - and a witch trial could be an interesting scenario for your campaign.
  10. There is an interesting novel about the Thirty Years War, "The Last Valley" by J. B. Pick, which might provide you with some good non-combat scenario ideas and some useful background colour descriptions. There is also a movie based on the novel - I liked it, but most critics did not, so I do not recommend it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Valley_(novel)
  11. Yes, indeed. Heavy use has damaged my copy of the BGB to the point where it is beginning to fall apart.
  12. I am sometimes unfaithful to M-Space () and use the Cepheus Engine roleplaying system, basically an open content version of Traveller, Zozer Games has published a very useful solo gaming supplement for the Cepheus Engine, aptly named Solo. Many of that supplement's ideas could probably be used for M-Space, too, although I have not yet tried to do it.
  13. Yep, got it - looks really good. After browsing Reflux I gave it 5 stars and wrote a very short review (well, one sentence - lack of time ...) on DTRPG.
