  2. Well in business terms you cannot set a release date until you have your ducks in a row.

    RQG PC's Preview - Spirit Magic

    The Rules explain 1/MR. However, the Composite Bow SR looks like an unspotted typo: it should be 1

    Heroes to Superheroes

    Probably not 'official' but (IIRC) Sandy suggested that each SuperHero was the embodiment of a particular Rune (Harrek with Death, Jar-Eel with Harmony etc.), but I guess they would have to Master the Infinity Rune too? So it might be the other way round, a Hero has multiple Runes they are very good at and then they Master one particular one? And probably also involved is their base of support from Worshipers, as well as their mythic restrictions and obligations (the latter from Andrew Jones' recent scoop on Google+). I'm looking forward the RuneQuest GamesMaster's Book when hopefully all will be revealed!

    That Chaosium seminar from Chimériades

    You should be.
  6. Misspelling it mean you obviously have not read the Kyger Litor cult enough times! (Although we talk about KL, Orlanth also had multiple re-writes too.) Joking aside, it is a new edition for RQ and, as great as it is to have access to old RQ2 supplements, the game needs a comprehensive update of previously published cults. This way the cults match up with the new rules, GtG (and other revelations), and the current era we now find Glorantha entering. The never fully presented cults should be enough to make it worthwhile getting for the old hand.
  7. Mongoose used the title of "Cults of Glorantha", so there is no new, clean way of doing it. But I concur, it sounds it will be an amazing book.

    Downloaded and all is good. Thanks

    Tribal Edit Thread for Glorantha Sourcebook

    Ditto. Does this mean the Backerkit version "CHA4033 GSB revised again" is not the latest version, and there is a fourth and yet-to-distributed version?

    RQG - Where we are. And the new cover.

    The "really really exciting news that we should be announcing soon" was the odd bit in the blog. How do they expect to top was has just been announced? Must be one hell of a franchise in the pipeline?

    RQG - Where we are. And the new cover.

    I guess this is aimed to appeal to newcomers. The hardcore fans are like us are going to buy it anyway, so there isn't any sense in going after them. The Gen Con copy shows the new game is gritty, but there is the promise of the game being playable up to the heroic level. In which case the cover makes much more sense. However, I think that the scenarios that follow will set the tone of the game, after all that's what really made RQ2 great. Let us all pray for no cattle raiding ones.

    RQG - Where we are. And the new cover.

    Looks very promising. The 'Designing the New RuneQuest' was very informative. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to give us a taste of great things to come.
  14. Why "Roleplaying in Glorantha" when the game's name is RuneQuest: Glorantha? Would it not make things simpler and easier to just have one name for the game?
