  1. Sure, if you'd like! Maybe some other people might have suggestions as well, if we're going to toss ideas around.
  2. Well, there seems to be some interest, so I guess what I can do is share what I've started on, if anyone is interested or wants to comment/suggest ideas. I've only just started and it's all very much in flux and obviously a WIP, but here you all go: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZfUEtfvChdoK3z9UOrejaHET3fH6lUj_h4SOeUy1nhE/edit?usp=sharing
  3. So, a question for folks. First off, I love the current RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha edition. However, when I first heard they were going to planning to do a new version of RuneQuest, I honestly was expecting it to be modeled using a variation of the amazing 7th edition of Call of Cthulhu that had recently come out just prior to the announcement (as opposed to using RQ's 2nd edition as their new baseline). So, that said, I am curious: has anyone tried some variations of RQ using something modeled more on the CoC rules? Obviously,
  4. So, was anyone familiar with the 'war' these two fought? Most of the stuff I've found has been vague in the extreme, and I was wanting to write a scenario which focused on one of the "reinforced trap-doors" behind which the Great Race tried to imprison them. Or really anything about the conflicts between them, etc.? I can invent stuff, of course, but would always prefer to build on 'official' or pre-established material if available. Thanks in advance!
  5. So, a rules question here. Under Resisting Spells (RQG p244) 'A target always resists a spell unless that target voluntarily and knowingly accepts the spell. To find out if a spell was successfully cast against a resisting target, compare on the resistance table the caster’s POW vs. the target’s POW' and indeed, almost every spirit magic spell etc., mentions that same resistance roll in the description. That said, I noticed that the spell Distraction explicitly does not mention that text in its description, and the way its worded implies that there isn't a roll needed to swap targets -- i
  6. So, quick clarification/rules question for RQG: under cultural weapons for new characters, when figuring out base chances, it says "Where the listed skill is a broad category of weapons (such as 1H Axe), you should pick a weapon within that category (such as Battle Axe)." Which is pretty straight forward as it stands, but under all homelands "Dagger" is listed. Are they referring to the broader category here, or to the specific weapon? I.e., is "dagger" listed under Cultural weapons because daggers of all types in general are commonly used (melee daggers, throwing daggers, parrying dagge
  7. Whoops, nope, I said I could not find any gender restrictions on shamans in Prax. To be honest, I have no idea if there are any. To me, the visual of a male shaman stuck with me from the first games I used to play, 30-plus years ago, but I have no idea if there actually are any cultural preferences or restrictions on that, like there are on some of the actual cults and their followers. Thanks for your feedback!
  8. Okay, so, the title's kind of all over the place, so hear me out for a moment. We've been doing character creation for an upcoming RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha campaign, and, of course, I love the family history background charts and love developing an interesting backstory from them even more. I wanted to play a Praxian associate shaman/wannabe-eventual-shaman, and a handful of synchronicities gave me an interesting thread to pull at here, and was wondering if any of it was viable as far as what might be a legitimate backstory as far as what we know about Praxian lore and culture

  10. That's wonderful, thank you so much!
  11. So, one of my favorite hidden gems regarding Glorantha was the fact that all (almost all?) the books had a little understated prayer to the Gods inserted among the publishing and copyright info, usually asking for protection of the book by the various forces related to the content. Some were entreating Lankhor Mhy to protect the book, others Irrippi Ontor, etc. Does anyone know of a suitable one along those lines I might use for a person's protection or health? I'm having a custom hit-point tracker created, and I thought it might be fun to put a similar short benediction on the back of t

  13. Wonderful stuff, guys, thank you so much for the additional (and thorough) information.
  14. Thanks for all the ideas and info, guys; appreciated. Could anyone suggest some books or links/soourcebooks that have more details about the myths/actions of TKT? I've only come across a scant few that are detailed on the web (such as hiding Ernalda, etc.). I know there's a lot of Glorantha lore out there from systems I never purchased, such as HeroQuest, so I suspect I may be missing a lot from other editions/incarnations of RQ over the years.
  15. Okay, so, I'm planning on running a RQG campaign later this summer, and none of my potential players have played RQ before (or even heard of the setting apart from my random reminiscences over the years). They've been looking through my sizeable (but hardly exhaustive) collection of RQ bits and bobs I have been accumulating over the last 40 years, trying to see if there's anything that catches their fancy or engages their gaming spirit, since there is soooo much lore to potentially deal with. One of the players always had soft spot for shepherds-of-the-dead-type gods, so he kinda latched
  16. So, after our first game, which was fun, we were wondring why Blessing cards used against you were supposed to be placed under your Khan tile, as opposed to simply discarded. Two suggestions were a) to avoid them being drawn back out by discard-pile searching abilities, and b ) to signify that they may still count towards your total even if they were used AGAINST you -- kind of a consolation prize for your Cow being stolen in the first place. Ideas, suggestions, advice?

  19. Beautifully-crafted dice, but with all the swarming details on the faces, find them to be a bit too illegible at a distance for my tastes. If one of the stretch goals was a colored set where the numbers were a different color (or the only thing painted), I'd snap those up in a heartbeat, tho.
  20. So, we've been playing some of the Prologue chapters of Horror on the Orient Express as stand-alones, and I've noticed a couple of the Spells listed for the NPCs seem to be missing -- usually the new spells are listed right there in a sidebar for easy reference, but i've gone through the main Keeper's Book, but haven't found anything; maybe I'm just failing my Library Use roll? Any help on these? Thanks in advance. Steal Life; Voice of Ra; Mesmerize (all from the 1893 Gaslight scenario)
  21. Namewise, all I want from the new version when it comes out is so that I can have a distinctive search term to search for things involved with that specific version.
  22. Speaking of stuff hovering around GenCon, have there been any announced plans regarding Chaosium, RQ and GenCon? Sadly, I didn't have the opportunity last year to try their 'rough play' slot of the upcoming version, so I'm hoping there will be more offerings to get more people interested this year.
