  1. Thanks so much. @JonHook really did a fantastic job with this one. You're gonna like it!
  2. These pieces are fantastic! Wow. Having participated in this project, I'm naturally biased, but I hadn't seen these illustrations 'til just now. Really nice work!
  3. I'm sure with a little finagling you could pull that off. I can see private investigators or investigative newspaper writers easily slotting into the scenarios. Chapter one includes enough "missing student" elements to include those roles. Might be more challenging using non-students in later chapters, but far from impossible. I can't remember if the authors included suggestions for other investigator characters; you might have to alter it yourself.
  4. Have you looked at A Time to Harvest, the free organized play campaign from a couple years back? https://www.chaosium.com/a-time-for-harvest/ We had a pretty good time with it. Bit-sized campaign chapters that don't require a ton of Keeper work, but provide all the essentials: clues, big cast of NPCs, maps and plans, and tons of terror-filled moments. Chapter 2, set in Miskatonic University, and chapter 5, which includes a spectacular other-worldly summoning, are especially enjoyable.

  10. Dimbyd - I was there something like five or six years ago. If I could find my old passport I'd know for sure. Ah well.
  11. Grand Tribunal? I've been there twice, both times hosted (and housed) by CJ. Have we met? matt
  12. It will be interesting to see how HeroQuest differentiates itself from the new RuneQuest. Two rule systems in the same setting? Three, if you count 13th Age in Glorantha (which you should count, and I'm very keen on getting those books). It's also interesting that the most recent HeroQuest release was Ian's very nitty-gritty, low-level play Coming Storm setting book.The detail is very fine, almost too fine for the rubbery, hand-waving HeroQuest game engine, I think. I wonder once the new RuneQuest finds its footing if we'll see RuneQuest stats for the huge list of NPCs in the Coming Storm.
  13. We ran a Petty Gods of Glorantha campaign in which the PCs were demi-gods volunteering for the Lightbringers Quest, re-writing Glorantha cannon with our sessions. The players loved it and wanted more, so we bopped around First Age Dragon Pass for awhile before heading east to Kralorela. I read through Revealed Mythologies a couple times to prepare for the campaign, but the group changed and I never picked it up again. Perhaps I should. Running a Demi-god-level game in Kralorela sounds fun. (I drew a couple maps that I could share if folks are interested.) For the survey, I opted for a setting off the beaten track. One of the things I don't like is that the future/history of Sartar and Prax are predetermined. I could set a game there, but it's really just mice running around waiting for the cats to come and play. I never got the sense that my players could do anything more than watch major events unfold. The Siege of Whitewall is difficult to play when we know it falls, and the threat of the Lunar Empire loses some of its zing when we know that the Red Moon falls in 1655. I know the nitty gritty of the Hero Wars in Dragon Pass, but I don't know what happens during the Hero Wars in Pamalta or Kralorela, and that sounds more fun to explore.
