  1. In our campaign, the PCs had to go down to the Boat Planet and release the anchor. It was trapped between life and death and those at the harbor were singing the song of life, while forces from the deep were trying to pull it down.
  2. I wasn't posting a puzzle, I would appreciate the answer. A friend wants to roll up his first character and he wanted an artist who could cast that spell. I am at a loss for what god that would be.
  3. I love this spell and am wondering about ways it could become more like the magic Lalo the Limner performs in the book series Thieve's World. But danged if I can guess what god gives this spell out. It's not Issaries, though whoever casts it would most likely be a crafter who would worship the god of trade, it's an illusion spell. It's not Donandar, though it's art, it is crafter's art, not entertainer's art. so what god is this and where is he/she found?
  4. per Hermes Trimagistus, all that is real is in motion, even the rock. All that is not in motion is an illusion. Hence, Stasis is an Illusion. From this it is evident that the concept that Stasis was the first rune can be shown to be false. For it contradicts the basic rule that all that is stasis is illusion and all that is movement is real. Therefore, the Movement rune was the first rune. change.
  5. You want to lower lethality for newbies, give them two characters. Their primary, who they roleplay and want to play and their secondary, who wears a red shirt and has a name like N Sin.
  6. If, by "experienced monsters" you mean Humakti.
  7. yeah, I'll make sure that the walktapus, the giant and Cwim all have dismiss magic, just because the developers fumbled their game design roll with a 00 (Blow it badly, roll twice more) then they created Sword Trance and combined it with the over 100% rule.
  8. Yes, if you read further up, it's right there. Malia. But my contention was she was a perfect candidate for a Thed avatar and so that's what she was in my Glorantha. That's all. Not arguing about canon or anything. Think about it. She's a female.human who leads broos. That's unusual. And she'd been treated unjustly by the villagers, just as Thed was by Orlanth.
  9. Except Thed IS a female, like it or not, and Muriah thus is perfect as her avatar. She was the perfect embodiment of Thed in my glorantha. :Muriah was vengeful and tragic, like Thed.
  10. Yes, they floated barges downriver. I can't remember where I read this, but it was integral not only in the building of Corflu, but the fleet as well.
  11. But she makes more sense if she's a Thed priestess. Given her backstory, she makes a great avatar of Thed.
  12. Pretty sure the red sword is in the west. I remember finding it in a temple in the Guide. Think it was Fronela, but not home to look it up.
  13. This is kinda morbid to talk about, but having seen a lot of death, it's not quick. Not even quick deaths are actually that quick. I - like everyone else on this thread apparently - give the PCs till the end of the next round to prevent someone from dying. They should fix that rule because no one uses it as written.
  14. Yup. There's a good reference that came out recently called A History of Violence about how the police in the U.S. were created to beat down the working class from protesting and uniting. A GM might want to consider that the same tactics might be employed upon uprisings in the Lunar Empire as well. All part of the Evil Emperor stuff.
  15. See what I'm saying? Brithini hatred. That poor Constantine fellow probably didn't even HAVE leprosi. As false as Brithini lies about the Followers of Vadel.
  16. We Vadeli are a misunderstood people. Everything you've read about us (above) are vile Brithini propaganda. Vadel was a great explorer and his discoveries of different cultures challenged and threatened the strict conservative traditionalists. Zzaburr skinned Vadel and bound his soul into a book. The murderer of Malkion is the truly vile, opportunistic sociopath, not the Vadeli. We simply acknowledge that all creation requires destruction and accept that chaos is the Creator's tool to create. Brithini grudgingly accept our logic is unassailable but their prejudices and fe
  17. If you play Drinax they give you your starship. It spells out the repair costs, upgrade costs, etc. You don't owe anything. It's not a merchant ship. It's a pirate ship.
  18. If you're playing Drinax the ship descriptions give maintenace costs in Traveller economy. So much of the campaign is in Traveller economy that you'd be better off not converting the money system.
  19. Ahem, Sheng Seleris would like a word with you.
  20. You can buy it at DTRPG https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/311970/MSPACE-Companion?affiliate_id=272323
  21. I always like the idea that unlike Keets, the Ducks of Dragon Pass were Orlanthi who became ducks to avoid the Dragonkill. Delecti had something to do with it no doubt.
