  1. Now i regret to just have purchased the PDF... want a REAL book!
  2. Will there be a POD option (preferarably in hardback)?
  3. Just bought the book (sadly only as PDF, because nothing else was available). Edit: It seems that it is GONE again. ???
  4. A very good friend of my wife (and former flat-sharing community friend) if the translator of the books into german. Will be nice to tell her thses news (she is a roleplayer herself).

    Are you planning to include the coders in upcoming supplements (or in the Dragon Pass Campaign book)?
  6. As far as i know this is due to a gender-swap by the Godlearners. Before the Godlearners it was a female fertile Earth goddess and a male warrior Fire god.
  7. Alle deutschen MYTHRAS Produkte (einschliesslich der Oktober Neuheiten zur SPIEL 19 nächste Woche) als Checkliste (die beiden Lücken wurden für die Regelergänzung "Mythras - Das Begleitbuch" und das Thennla Quellen- und Abenteuerbuch "Sorandib - Stadt des Feuerdämons" gelassen):
  8. For keeping the "we encounter strange other creatures" feeling i would alter the ducks of the adventure into newtlings. But: A ducks only party? Great!
  9. Chaosium has answered similar questions before: It seems that there are NO PLANS to do a new/updated version of the BRP book. And i can´t blame them. This book doesn´t need an update, it is great as it is. And there will be no new setting or adventure books based on BRP alone anymore. BUT Chaosium has plans to publish BRP (RQG, cleared from the Gloranthan additions) setting books in the future. These books are likely based upon RQG (with BRP tendencies) and will include the setting specific rules. So they will be stand alone RPGs. In the past 5 books (and additional supplements for them) were mentioned: Mythic Island (set in 950 AD) Varangian RUs (set in 950 AD) Arabian Knights (set in 950 AD) Constantinople (set in 950 AD) Pirates ((set in the 1600s AD) Each book will include the RQ/BRP rules adjusted to the setting (especially magic i assume).
  10. Adulthood starts at Initiation, which isn´t taking place when you turn 20, but more like 15 years. So building a family can easily start at anything from 16 to 36. I use 20 in my Glorantha, because "children can happen", you don´t have to be married. :-)
  11. Story hooks, ideas... The natural way for ducks travelling from Sartar to the River of Cradles region should be south through Heortland, along the coastline to Corflu and from the stream upwards. Travelling through Prax will be hard for a water loving species. The group of ducks is hunted by (lunar) bounty hunters (make them a thread, but whenever the pursuing bounty hunters are almost there, give the group a head start - to the next "safe" location... until the bounty hunters find them).
  12. Your set up story is exactly the story of "Gloranthan Duck Tales" a gloranthan HQ adventure, currently only published in german in "Schattenklinge # 19".
  13. An "action" picture of a Trollball game. The players are Uz (Trolls), well armed (but not overly heavy), with blunt weapons in hands. The ball is a Trollkin of course.
  14. Uz are BIG, not fat (even if some of their mass is a layer of fat)! Think Wrestlers or Strong Man competitors, rather than sumo ringers.
  15. A long time ago Greg wrote this article (and i hunted down a copy of that book on eBay): https://www.glorantha.com/docs/postcards-from-glorantha/
  16. In my other hobby (genealogy) i have researched a small town in silesia from 1648 to 1945 (in between 350 and 1350 people living there, depending on the time period), with about 22.000 recorded people (not all living there, some only relatives of people living there). The mortality rate of the 0 to 15 year olds was 47% in that village. So i assume that this will be correct for most other villages in that time period and region. I tried to figure out if children born out of wedlock had a higher child mortality, and oh boy, yes: born out of wedlock raised the chance that a child dies before its 13th birthday by 15% (i am sorry, but the statistic i made made the cut from 0-12, 13-24, 24+).
  17. Or they could do it "The Boy King" like: Publishing the first half of the campaign NOW for immediate use, and work on the second half while we are playing in the era of the first book. Argrath Saga, Part 1 1621 - 1638 (Battle of Dwernapple AND Phargentes crowned Red Emperor) Argrath Saga, Part 2 1638 - 1655
  18. >This is really cool. Were they 100% Nephilium with memories, or did they play it like a symbiosis sort of thing. They were 100% Nephilim with all their memories of their past lives (except one) intact, but they tried to figure out as much of the life of they new host as possible, and continued to live that life, but ADDITIONALLY following their Nephilim agenda and goals. It was a lot like being really Batman, but living it out only in secret while continuing to live Bruce Waynes life.
  19. I played (GMed) Nephilim for a few years. I agree that the concept of playing an invasive being taking over a human body (and life) can be repelling for the players. My players always wanted to follow their goals, but also took account of the previous life of their host/Simulacrums. They showed up on the wedding aniversary of their parents, tried to be in good relations with the colleagues of their Simulacrum (they were university students, so with their fellow students and professors), etc. They also identified themselves with the former life of their Simulacrum as strong as with their own pastlives.
  20. 0:04 Uhr Auch wenn dieses Crowdfunding gemächlicher ablief als wir es uns gewünscht hätten, so zählt nur eins: Das Projekt ist finanziert und wird Ende Oktober auf der SPIEL 19 erscheinen! Danke an alle Unterstützer!
  21. Die letzten 12 Stunden... Wer noch eine Ausgabe der Deluxe-Version (Mythic Constantinople in braunem Leder mit Cover und Rückenprägung und metallenen Buchecken) ergattern möchte: Letzte Gelegenheit! Es sieht so aus als werde es nur 10 Exemplare geben! https://www.startnext.com/mythicconstantinople
  22. Stasis and Law are not thaaaat different.

  24. Was that before or after he wrote 7th Sea? 😉
  25. Make it a Fantasy Europe/Mythic Europe where are invisible magical barriers all over the place. You can cross these barriers but emd up in a different time period of european history if you do so. Only living matter may pass these barriers (that avoids the problem that would evolve if you were able to bring canons and granates from Mythic Constantinople to Mythic Britzain for instance), which allowes the adventurers/heroes/characters to travel across all the regions of europe, without mixing up to much of these settings.
