  1. Thanks! I can't think of a better way to mark the occasion than to throw dice in Greg's honour.
  2. Delighted to see Pendragon coming home and to hear the plans for it and others hinted. Great days ahead - congrats all.
  3. The other key correction was the inclusion of the sample glory awards table that accidentally got dropped from KAP 5
  4. The King has set sail over the lake to Avalon. I got to know Greg through Pendragon. I'd just got back into gaming after a break of too many years, and discovering Pendragon, lapped it up. Greg emailed the Yahoo Pendragon group saying he was looking for someone to help him put together a website. No one else offered and so I found myself tentatively saying I knew a little bit of html and could give it ago if no one else came forward. And so it was that I found myself working with my gaming hero for many years on his original weareallus.com website and then gspendragon.com along with the original Round Table forum before it moved across to its current home with Nocturnal. Through this, I also got to work on a few projects with him, which was a privilege, wonderful watching this creative genius at work. Greg also supported a group of us who set out to run Pendragon scenarios at Continuum and a few other cons, 'The Pendragon Eschille', and regularly dropped in for a Skype chat, battling mightily with the many tech issues we encountered on the way. It was great getting to know him - he was always generous, patient and passionate. Although good 'virtual friends' we only met once, at the last Continuum he came over for. He had long promised to run a game for me if our paths crossed, and so I seized the opportunity. A group of us rolled up characters. Mine was Sir Dafyd. We rode out on a quest from the GPC. The quest opened with a quick encounter. Dice were rolled. Possibly the first were by Greg against Sir Dafyd. In full view, as is traditional in Pendragon. Rolled up, dismounted, unconscious, out of the game, all within five minutes. Still, I got the pleasure of watching the rest of the game unfold, the only standard game I've ever played in rather than run. A treasured memory, along with my copies of KAP & the GPC, which he signed afterwards. Thanks Greg, proud to have been one of your household knights!
  5. Sounds fun - I'd looked for Gloranthan games but was too late to get in on Andrew's. If I make it there on time and there are still spaces, I'd love to join in.
  6. Hey thanks Iskallor, I'll take a look! It would be great to game with you again. What's the posting rate? I'm good for a post most week days but weekend are a little dodgy.
  7. Sorry, I'm afraid not, I fear its English only for me.
  8. My usual gaming group have been playing a RQ game set in Glorantha recently and its got me wanting more. Anyone know of any play by mail or forum games that I could join (my work/family commitments make 'live' online gaming difficult) to try and satisfy the itch? Don't mind what system is used.
