    I am a RuneQuest fan, but I also like HeroQuest.
    I usually play in Glorantha. But I also like Call of Cthulhu a lot.

  1. I thought of doing that in my campaign too, it's a great idea. The best thing would be to weave a lot of interplay between the two ages. A bit like in the videogame The Day of the Tentacle, if you know what I mean. I was also a bit disappointed by Pavis Rises, but the scenario about the giant looks fun.
  2. I have already stated broadcasting the news! 😀 https://elruneblog.blogspot.com/2020/01/glorantha-gods-war-segundo-kickstarter.html If you use the Translation gadget on the right margin, you can get a fairly decent translation, with funny names such as "Toro Stormy" 😝 Moreover, the turntables of Shargash and Wachaza are already available. Have you checked them out yet?
  3. That is a great idea. Yozarian's Bandit Ducks! was made with new players and GMs in mind, so it will definitely be a good scenario to run. I had a blast when I played it. In fact, it would be interesting to know how your game went after you run it! 🙂

    This is great and I wish you could remember more details about it. :-0 When I ran the Troubled Waters campaign to my players (warning, spoilers ahead), at first they didn't realise the Chaotic priest was underwater in the grotto, so they kept going down the corridor to the depths where the Eye of Wakboth lies. I couldn't think what to do to avoid them suddenly coming across the Eye unprepared and gaining , say, 1D100 Chaotic gifts, half of them from that table of Thed's cult description, so I just narrated how they got more painful headaches as they dived on, and the water started to hurt them all around. Luckily, they retreated. I wish I had had somehting better prepared beforehand.
  5. As in the previous edition, it's cool seeing these mainly abstract representations of the deities. 😈 My favorite of these new expansions is Storm Bull. It's full of berserk energy! 🌀 My least favorite are Lhankhor Mhy (Why is he holding a harp? Why is he described as "Singer of the Gods"???) and Daliath (sorry but a plate-headed humanoid is too abstract for me!) 🙈 Vadrus is how I picture Valind. But then, how would you have pictured him? ❄️ Zorak Zoran should look more imposing and aggressive and less zombie-like. The miniature of Cacodemon also rocks and is how I pictured Wakboth. But have you noticed he is holding the Young Kingdoms' Chaos rune? 👹 I find Rashorana unsettling, and I think that's good! Especially her art. 😳 Looking at their art, I think Wachaza and Shargash are going to look very cool as well. BTW, the miniatures of the dragon and the manticore are great! 😼
  6. When you are able to answer to "Why does Rashorana only have 6 heads instead of 7?", you will be one step closer to attaining Illumination.
  7. Mazinger Z???!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, I'm amazed. You have to tell is the tale of how you got that license... As to playing it... well, I'll feel like a small kid again.
  8. BTW, here it is: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/296285/Yozarians-Bandit-Ducks
  9. - Wesley Quadro's Gwandor Saga is good, but he has others as well: http://www.celtic-webs.com/glorantha/campaigns/campaigns.html - Artus Silenis' Pavis campaign, starting with Borderlands, is good (in Spanish, though) http://diario-de-mina-la-bella.blogspot.com/ - I have written a couple chronicles of two episodes of our Colymar campaign (also in Spanish, though): The first episode: https://elruneblog.blogspot.com/2017/08/la-campana-colymar-de-sartar-kingdom-of.html The last episode: https://elruneblog.blogspot.com/2016/12/partida-de-heroquest-el-iniciado-de.html - Jeff Richard's famous Taming of Dragon Pass and David Dunham's East Ralios campaigns are also a good read: https://www.pensee.com/dunham/glorantha/todp/ https://www.pensee.com/dunham/ralios/tales.html - I have also enjoyed reading Andrew Logan's campaigns Six Seasons in Sartar and River of Cradles: http://andrewloganmontgomery.blogspot.com/2018/10/six-seasons-in-sartar-1-introducing.html - Sandy Petersen's campaign across the Wastes is not to be missed: http://www.seiyuu.com/okamoto/writing/index.html
  10. I hope the upcoming GM Book will include rules for community magic like the examples in this thread. In the campaign I'm currently playing, our pirate ship also has a wyter and there's communal magic to help in weathering storms.

    That sparks more questions: 1. What were the numbers of the Praxian forces? 2. Did all those forces cross the river at some point to get to Moonbroth or did they arrive there through Pavis County (north of Pavis)? 3. What exactly were those «eating things» summoned by Jaldon? 🤔
  12. This is explored in "Red Sun Rising", a HeroQuest campaign by d101 Games set in a Lunar Dara Happan city. I wonder if anyone has tried to play it using RuneQuest, and what they did with initiation. https://d101games.com/product/gloranthan-adventures-2-red-sun-rising/ And then there's also "Dara Happa Stirs" set in the Second Age, for Mongoose's RQII.
  13. So far AFAIK the official take was that most Pelorians were just lay members. So, do you mean that Dara Happans are initiates of subcults and they are not allowed to draw magic from the general cult they belong to, only from their particular subcult, right? Interesting. 🤔 It reminds me of how cults worked with the Hero Wars books, where Orlanthi didn't worship Orlanth, but only a particular subcult of the god. Then, proper Lunars are also a "Kingdom of Heroes" meaning they worship directly a big goddess or god?
  14. I hope I can review most of them, starting with this one! 😋
  15. Yozarian's Bandit Ducks! is already available, and soon the other 3 scenarios
