  1. Well, if you want Classic Fantasy, and you want BRP, I see you can still get the original BRP Classic Fantasy PDF: https://www.chaosium.com/classic-fantasy-pdf/ Although his new Mythras version is of course more polished.
  2. I like to start with this for inspiration: https://watabou.itch.io/medieval-fantasy-city-generator
  3. I'm pretty sure Hamilton had Future*World. One of his main characters is called Sheldon, which is also the name of one of the characters in the Future*World scenario.
  4. It's been done (for the entire WoW set), and Chaosium have the text and image files. It might be a while before they get around to doing anything with it, though.
  5. It's a sign of the times that at first reading of the title I took the topic to be abut an app that reduces your apparent age.
  6. I bought a pad of Games Workshop RQ2 character sheets in the 80s when we were all still poor and happy. Used them sparingly until I only had a few left, then I started photocopying them, until I had too many RQ3 rules in my game. I recently (well, a few years ago) bought another copy of the Games Workshop RQ2 softcover and was pleasantly surprised to find an unused original of the sheets tucked inside.
  7. I believe both g33k and I were absolutely clear in stating what is still outstanding. No-one has claimed the Kickstarter as a whole has not delivered, and I have in the past stated that I expect that the remaining PDFs will one day be finished (though I, like you yourself, hesitate to put a date on that given that no-one else is assigned to work on them at this time).
  8. I started thinking along those lines after playing GURPS extensively in the late 80s. It makes sense, all hand tools being force multipliers, not force generators. The RQ minimum STR requirements reflect this to some extent, but a base STR damage modified by the type of weapon/ attack might be more elegant.
  9. You might have missed the Kickstarter campaign, but now you can get the BLUEHOLMEâ„¢ Journeymanne Rules direct from Lulu. And, if you get in there before 23:59 on 25 December, you can get 20% off with the code LULU20.
  10. Yep, I'm one of those still waiting for all those PDFs, though by now my interest in RQ has waned to the point that I really just want to cross them of the list. It's a little disappointing to see another 6-figure Kickstarter delayed by almost 2 years (?). Leaving all the work to the president is not what one would expect from any company, even if it is an RPG publisher. I thought avoiding this sort of thing was why the Chaosium takeover happened in the first place.
  11. Yes, but there was too much information in all of them. I never had a bunch of Gloranthaphiles as players, so the ever-expanding (and ever-changing) detail quickly put an end to my gaming in Glorantha. Not that I minded, because the basic RQ2 (and RQ3) system was very adaptable to every other setting I ventured into thereafter.
  12. Anything past 2nd edition, and ducks.
  13. If you check out the FAQ on the RQ2 Kickstarter it doesn't sound likely that the Gloranthan Classics will be reprinted any time soon: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/224590870/runequest-classic-edition/faqs
  14. It's still RQ7 to me, or it would be if I hadn't moved to Revolution D100.
  15. Stupid double posting feature.
  16. As someone who identifies as Welsh (amongst others) I would like to say that I have no problem with Mythic Britain in spite of English imperialism. I'm sure the Americans will be fine. Once TDM get around to them.
  17. The first of the stretch goals has gone out to the backers: six illustrated character sheets - cleric, fighter, magic-user, thief, fighting mage, and generic. If you missed the Kickstarter, you can nab high-res printable copies off DTRPG. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/218957/BLUEHOLMETM-Character-Records
  18. Robyn is in the hode! Unfortunately I have an academic paper to write so I'm off gaming-related reading until September! Perversely I am less busy during semester than in summer ...
  19. Oops, you're right, Triff.
  20. Nothing newsworthy - a lot of refinement has gone in, but it's still in draft form. "It" being AEON:mageworldâ„¢. The BLUEHOLMEâ„¢ Journeymanne Rules Art Kickstarter is on schedule but keeping me pretty busy for the rest of this year. In 2017 I will prioritise the AEON:engineâ„¢ side of things.
  21. Trust me, open content does not make it easy.
  22. I always wondered whether someone noticed part-way through illustrating the title text, "Oh, crap. Masters. It's Rune MASTERS ..."
  23. Sign me up for a copy of the Merrie England Companion.
