    Balancing combat encounters

    [moderator hat] comment in this thread removed because the poster was advocating piracy. Please don't, even flippantly.

  8. Waiting for the new RQG in hardback to drop at midnight? Fill the time reading Andrew Logan Montgomery's comprehensive review of the RUNEQUEST GAMEMASTER SCREEN PACK. As he says: "If I have a chief complaint with the new RuneQuest GameMaster Screen Pack, it's that it is a very badly named product. Yes, there is a gorgeous gamemaster screen in there, 20 pages of handy reference sheets, sumptuous character sheets, tons of maps, and even a calendar... but what the team have really given us here is a living, breathing culture. The component they humbly refer to as a "booklet" is in fact a 128-page book detailing the lands and peoples of the Colymar tribe. It easily could have been sold separately from the "Screen Pack," but Chaosium has never been big on half measures." The rest of his review here: https://andrewloganmontgomery.blogspot.com/2018/09/more-than-screen-people-without.html
  9. Coupons have now all gone out*. If you didn't receive yours, check your spam/junk folder in case it ended up there. Otherwise, drop Dustin a line at customerservice@chaosium.com. *If we release the coupons too early, way before the product is available, some people invariably will try to use them and get confused/vexed/even angry when they can't. Then we spend valuable time that could be better spent on other things explaining over and over to impatient people that they have to wait. Even though the coupon states you have to wait, such has already happened several times today, with just a few hours between sending out the coupons and the release. The closer to the product being ready that the coupons go out the better, we have found.
  10. RUNEQUEST - ROLEPLAYING IN GLORANTHA in full-color hardback will be ready to purchase from Chaosium.com at Midnight, EDT on Sept 21 - in just a few hours! —Hardback (inc. PDF): USD$54.95 —Special Leatherette Edition (+PDF): USD$100.00. We have stocks of both in our US, UK and Australian warehouses. People who have already purchased the PDF from Chaosium.com have been emailed a coupon. This gives you the FULL PRICE of the PDF off the cost of the physical book. (Check your junk/spam folders if you can't find it; otherwise, drop Dustin a line at: customerservice@chaosium.com)
  11. The print files include all corrections outstanding at the time it went to press.

    The Interior Art Needs to Change

    The original poster has said the person at their workplace who complained has a "long history of making similar complaints" about "things that are offensive to his culture". That the workplace came to an official conclusion that the artwork in the RQG book is "borderline" pornographic sounds like pandering to that person and a massive overreaction, for whatever reason. The art is nothing of the sort. Stridently titling this thread "The interior art needs to change" is acting a bit like the vexatious person who took offence and caused you so much grief though, isn't it? Here's an alternative that would get more sympathy and understanding: "You'll be gobsmacked to learn what happened to me after innocuously reading RQG on my lunch-break at work today." The art doesn't need to change. The art is not going to change. The book is coming out in print on Friday.
  13. Intrigue and Horror in the Pearl of the Orient! This is a just-launched Call of Cthulhu Kickstarter by new licensees, the Sons of the Singularity. The 'Sassoon Files' is set in historical 1920s Shanghai; an international city of intrigue, espionage, style and violence. The campaign has already funded on Day One, and well worth checking out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1918458549/the-sassoon-files

    The Interior Art Needs to Change

    This is apparently one of the pieces identified as "borderline" pornography: As I said in my earlier comment, while it's a shame the original poster had to go through an ordeal at work after being accused of reading "inappropriate" content, taking umbrage at innocuous images such as these is way out of step with mainstream community standards in Australia (and I suspect pretty much anywhere RQG is freely available).
