  1. Mostali inventions/item ideas?

    dormant gremlins, cf the 1984 movie
  2. What was your favourite version of RQ to date and why?

    3, which I started with. Good worldbuilding support and a mostly tight design. I played enough of it to get into it but not enough to understand its problems. 2 looks like a joke, je ne sais quoi not withstanding, and 6, which I have played a fair bit of, is fine and has some good stuff like combat effects and aspects of its magic, but it's just a little sprawling.
  3. Do spirits require elemental runes

    ^ Yeah; I interpret it more as a HeroQuest Glorantha rule than an in-setting cosmological truth.
  4. Umathela vs Fonrit : orlanth vs Chaos?

    I think you'd want to decide whether and how these Heortling-Lunar elements apply to Umathela-Fonrit: * a definite concept of chaos and prominent myths about it * divinations about the red moon that clearly say it's evil * visible chaotic magic like the Crimson Bat
  5. What was Belintar up to?

    Belintar is the only one who could see the hexes.
  6. What was Belintar up to?

    He was trying to fill in a place on a map where Greg randomly wrote "The Holy Country" because he thought it sounded cool.
  7. Sieging a Heortling Hill-Fort

    Come to think of it, if we're talking Kerofinela, then you also have to decide how prevalent and effective Orlanthi flying and jumping magic are, in your Glorantha. Gnomes and flight are both potentially huge game changers for sieges, depending how you interpret them.
  8. Sieging a Heortling Hill-Fort

    You have to decide how prevalent and effective gnomes are in your Glorantha.
  9. Artmali ruins in Pamaltela

    There's a need for a science-fantasy feel because there's always a need for a science-fantasy feel. And because of the backwards thing, that's a good one.
  10. Cost of Iron

    Good stuff. Anyone want to take a stab at the size, weight, and value of oxhide ingots for the different metals? (edit: looks like around 30kg for an ingot typically, or in the 20-60 range (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxhide_ingot, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talent_(measurement). So using pachristian's prices maybe 5000L for a 30kg silver ingot and 600L for a bronze one. 30 of those per ton.)
  11. Glorantha: HQG or RQ Classic?

    No, it's not just advice. It's core and goes-hand-in-hand with the ability advancement rules to make an explicit treadmill.
  12. The Argan Argar Atlas shows Vithalash unmarked with any tree icons, in marked contrast to the islands around it. Maybe that was carelessness or a lack of time; maybe it was deliberate to show it as special, like by being in the Outer World. In-setting I'm sure it looks like the other islands, just more fantastical. Seems to me it would be a choice spot for elderly people to go, when they're ready to go. Maybe everyone in the East Isles goes there in the end if they can. Or maybe that's forbidden; maybe it separates your soul from your home island.
  13. New RuneQuest and gods' Runes.

    I think it'd be clearer to call him Yu-Kargzant.
  14. Prince of Sartar. Comic

    Or maybe that's what he means by chop them up.
  15. Theyalan Language

    ela = land Genertela = Genert's Land Peloria = Land of Oria* * no, I don't want to hear about your Pela and your Pelora
