  1. Hi Guys, I was wondering what people thoughts were on Worlds United . I keep looking at it, and almost certainly am going to buy it. But was curious what other people thought. it's always nice to get feedback before splashing the cash.
  2. Now, I have no plans to publish anything in any system so I have no dog in this fight. But.....if we all waited around for Chaosium to publish the things they say they're going to publish we'd all die of old age. Remind me again how long it took the Dorastor supplement to be published after it's first mention ? :-)
  3. I started playing RPG'S in the early 80's, like many I started on D'n'D but my local games shop had a copy of Snakepipe Hollow ( bigclub fighting the snake cover ) which I bought because of it's quirky cover....got RQ2 boxed set for my next birthday and never looked back. 38 years later I have shelves groaning under the weight of Chaosium related games. It's probably fair to say that playing Runequest got me reading a lot of history, mythology and all sorts of other topics A sad day indeed.
  4. Dear all, Some time back I read a book the theme of which stuck in my mind, now recently I fancied reading it again...and realised I could remember neither the title or the author ! Quelle horreur ! I know I'm getting old now but even so..... So: It's set in a city that is stuck in the middle of an impenetrable forest. There is a short hinterland of fields round the city and then forest. All attempts by the people of the city to break out to the outside world are met the dwellers of the forest with extreme prejudice, nobody survives. Eventually though one intrepid band do make it out ending the cities isolation. At the same time the main character is dealing with a sub plot which is the murder of a prominent member of the city. Ring any bells with anybody ?
  5. I don't look down on people that don't play BRP related games..... I may pity them and their empty meaningless lives, but I don't look down on them :-)
  6. Last night ( in fact about 1.5 hours ago ) I had a dream about BRP I'd gone into a games store and on the shelves were supplements giving official conversion notes for most major RPG's into BRP so..: MERP/Rolemaster, D'n'D, Traveller. Mechanics, creatures, spells the whole works. I was leafing through them thinking " thank god I've got my credit card here " and then I woke up. And what was worse I couldn't remember any of the conversion details :-) What a sad muppet.
  7. Just to add to this, the Worlds Of Cthulhu magazine did a fine write up of CAS Averoigne setting for Cthulhu Dark Ages spread across several issues, spells, beasts, geography etc etc. I thought it was rather good.
  8. I think it'd be a shame if the whole concept were discontinued. As I've said before I think some of the most interesting stuff I've bought from Chaosium in the last few years has been monographs, especially on the BRP side of things. Also as I've said before if you remove the BRP monographs that's the vast bulk of the BRP line gone, apart from Magic World what have you got ? Magic world is ok but coming from an RQ background it doesn't quite tick all the boxes for me. By contrast however both Swords of Cydoria and The Green were both in my opinion excellent ( The Green in particular ) and I'd have happily bought additional supplements for both. I think part of the problem was that due to Chaosiums glacially slow production schedule the monographs became the bulk of what Chaosium had to offer. When 3rd party semi pro product is the majority of what you've got to sell then there's something severely wrong. I know the quality of them was variable but they had a kind of quirky charm that I rather liked. Because they were people's pet projects there was an enthusiasm and sense of excitement to them that was missing from much of the official Chaosium material. Perhaps a good compromise solution would be to allow them to continue but as PDF and POD products only ?
  9. Mission to Epsilon has literally only just hit the streets...yet it it's gone already. ? I went to order it and it seems to have vanished. Not even in the sale ? I do hope they go down the POD route. Some of the most interesting stuff I've ordered for CoC and BRP has been monographs. And the vast bulk of the material for BRP is monographs, take those away and you don't have much of a line left.
  10. Now seems to have gone from the Chaosium website. Couldn't find it under BRP rules, supplements or monographs.
  11. They say: Thus, we have 50% off the Following: All BRP and Call of Cthulhu Monographs! Novelties & Accessories! All licensed Call of Cthulhu products, including Fantasy Flight Games boardgames and miniatures, Cubicle 7 books, Golden Goblin, Arc Dreams, and more! All non-English language books! Nephilim! (These books will not be reprinted or reordered once they’re gone!) So.......none of the BRP or Call of Cthulu monographs are ever going to be re printed again ? Are the authors aware of this ?
  12. There were two MRQ1 adventures by Sceaptune Games that had a vaguely similar theme: Singleton scenarios : Exile The second one was called Dryhaven, they were both pretty good
  13. Sounds like a good idea. I don't think there would be any objections at one time they were widely available all over the net for free. It's just as people have left the hobby and due to the general attrition of time lots of old RQ sites have bit the dust. It's sad really when I first got on the net in about 1994 ish there was a great RQ link site run by a chap called Kim Englund, it had around 400 links to RQ and/or Gloranthan sites. Loads of great material, you'd be lucky to find 40 RQ sites now.
  14. Rod, tried PM ing you and it says you cannot receive any new messages ?
  15. Bugger, missed it. Now I'll never get that Dragonewt book.....
