    Trying to find a scenario to run for my group

    Blood Brothers may have a "slasher type" scenario in it, I think you can get the pdf from DriveThruRPG. Check online for reviews before you buy to get more information about each scenario

    New RuneQuest Design Note (15)

    I agree with the Initiate trap, back in the day playing constantly many times a week from about 1982 to about 1987 we had absolutely not one Runelord or Runepriest. It almost seemed the goal was just to become one. Not to adventure beyond one. Indeed all this talk of Heroquesting and stuff still seems a bit daft to me.

    Would you play this scenario?

    Sounds good to me. Just run with it and don't sweat the small details that the players will never ever find out.
  4. I coudn't agree more, lots of adventures please. Less of the endless sourcebooks detailing useless information such as 3000 year histories that are completely irrelevant to most gamers needs. I really don't care what colour Pavis' socks are !! Please look at the D&D 5e model, they're pumping out campaign after campaign. I think they've got about five out now in the last four years. Now don't jump down my throat, I love Runequest and want it to succeed and am really looking forward to RQG but it must be supported with campaigns and adventures. Beornvig...I'd love a copy of your Balazar Quest notes, having ran a recent Griffin Mountain campaign myself and experiencing similar problems. I just cobbled together old White Dwarf scenarios to form a a loose campaign.

    lunar temples and floor plans

    I think the RQ3 Griffin Island had a floor plan of the newly constructed Lunar temple in Elkoi, indeed my players broke into it

    Snake Pipe Hollow

    Thanks for the freebie Rick, it's appreciated. I really like the fact you're keeping the layout, artwork and "feel" of the originals. Long may this continue!!
  7. Hi Guys I'm not sure if this has been asked before on this forum but does anyone know if anybody is developing a Runequest 2 (Classic) Encounter Generator along the lines of the suberb Runequest 6 generator. Thanks

    RuneQuest 2 reprint

    This is good news, it seems Chaosium is heading in the right direction. There's money to be made in them old rulebooks and supplements. As much as I like the Gloranthan Classics I'd love to see them reprinted using the old layout, fonts and using the original artwork including the old awesome covers. I can;t say I was impressed with the "new" artwork in the Gloranthan Classics...sorry Rick, but that's just me. Even if they're all print on demand, its good news. I'm sure I'll pick this book up anyway.

    A Revolution for D100

    Hi I am probably out on a limb so.... I'm not really into rules systems as such but if you give me a sh*t hot campaign (a la Borderlands/Masks of Nyarlathotep/Enemy Within/Alchemists Wife etc) to go with it then I may be interested. BRP scenarios are so closely related that you can swap and change things at will. You need to get your best story writers on to this not rules lawyers. I am sure a rule system will live or die by this mantra. My tuppence worth, that's all Ed

    What would YOU pay?

    I'm not a millionaire by any means but as I'm nearing the half century I have a bit of dosh to spend every now and then, certainly more than I did in 1980 something. Now I would pay for anything that resembles a big campaign pack that simulates a Runequest or Call of Cthulhu games from back in the day such as Borderlands, Masks of Nyarlathotep etc etc. It doesn't need colour or fancy covers but needs a good story arc. This will, in my mind make or break a Rule system. I have yet to see a modern BRP game with a decent campaign attached with the exception of the "King and Commonwealth" for Runequest 2. I'm fed up with the numerous rule systems that are out there but if I see one that has a decent campaign then my eyes will light up, So come on guys write some scenarios.
  11. All you need for a Jack the Ripper scenario is any crowded city (which London was as this time, just smaller in diameter) and a madman with a sharp knife. So I think most definitely yes.

    Suggestions for a Magic World setting

    If you're really interested in the Renaissance era then don't give up on Clockwork and Chivalry. The kingdom and Commonwealth is a cracking campaign, I have not ran or played it but it is brilliantly written with plenty of politics. It has been published in two editions, one for Mongoose Runequest and the other Renaissance deluxe. Both systems would be a snap to convert to other BRP systems. I've considered using it for Strombringer, Call of Cthulhu and even in a Runequest Harn setting. It is basically set during the English Civil War but with a bit of effort could be used between any two nations at war, the campaign is that good, it is worth it.

    Chaosium, Design Mechanism and RuneQuest: A Statement

    This is good news because my gaming group has, a year ago, started to play RQ6 in Glorantha. My only concern is that they will rewrite the rules for RQ7. I have just got my head around RQ6 and can;t be bothered to try and learn a "new" system especially because I am from the old days of RQ2. Runequest needs some stability with plenty of scenarios and adventures to concrete the rules. Because for me the Numenera rules are lurking around the corner.

    ENNIES 2015

    Its so expensive, I cannot afford it, so why should I vote for it, even though I want to!
