  1. Usually I would say Uleria because The Harp, songs and Emotions really fit the goddess of Love (You can use Ernalda profile in RQG since she is not listed) and in a second hand the curse way make me think about the First Harp Myth and Harana Illor. Harana Illor may still have a tiny cult even if the goddess is no more (the same) and As she hold the Harmony Rune using harmonisation magic (groups trance) really fit her. There could be some second hand gods like Hyraos, Dara Happan God of the Harp and we don't know much about (Good to improvise a new cult, and create a myth where the god lik
  2. 1/ yes, Chaos is Bad, Very Bad, Wrong and Scary .... 2/ Nope, as sword is not bad, nor is any power, nor is Illumination... just badly use; very-very badly use PS : I've got some thoughts to share about Chaos / Entropy and why they are so much badly understood... but I'll live it for another time. Perfectly agree, And I will say even more.... Arkati Mode On 😈 (To stay in the illumination thread theme) As an Arkati, I'm a tiny bit Illuminated because I understand the universe from an outside point of view (First step of Illumination) When Orlanth refuse to recognize the meri
  3. Pro- "Zzabur savior of the World"' Mode ON 🧐 The greatest lie of Chaos : making believe you need it and that everything come from chaos... Remember : Adamant is The materialisation of Law which destroy chaos by it simple contact. Chaotic will tell you that Chaos create law which perfectly destroy chaos... yes primal chaos is pretty stupid and no chaos is not a component of Glorantha. The Runes are element of Glorantha, there is no Chaos Rune, no chaos Nexus in the Spell plane, no Chaos domain in the Rune Plane nor any Chaotic Majestic Spirit ... Dragons are the only strang
  4. I envision a Great Trolling Moment when the horned man (with Eurmal advice) give you your fist Taboo : "You cannot discorporate unless for doing a taboo pilgrimate". MUAHAHAHAH 🤣
  5. Why only one ... ability extension for 10 AP extension cost 10POW with 9 taboo. I have rolls the taboo, I just have all pilgrimages to do, never use an axe (what for ? I'm shaman not zombie-hunter), and I must cast my spell with spirit-speech in singing (which will torture my enemies eardrums). It lessen the cost and give a real Shaman Vibe to your PC ... Balance + Rule ........... I'm the guy your looking for 🧐 because it's pretty much easy for me who do rules tuning as much as I breath Enchantment by a French Sadistic Sorcerer 😉 -Power effect : 1POW for each Intensity, the sp
  6. Yes, you had to enchant each localisation separately but there was a loophole : You can create an enchantment to cast the spell which affect the whole body (Spell matrix : 1POW => 1PA full body) and the armor / strengthening matrix was per location but with a generous +1D6 Pt (1POW : 1D6 PA per location). The spell matrix was as much over-powerfull as the actual "inscribing spell" but the armor matrix is still a big three times stronger than a spell in terms of cost/effectiveness : -An Enchanted shield with 4POW get an average +12 PA (~24 total AP), rendering most attack ineffective.
  7. I hope they do ! Yep, I absolutely totally agree with this estimation... I had done some rough estimation (last week) about them and clearly its too strong because losing 1POW for 1AP cost you 7MP per week but a Sorcerer spell cost around 15-20MP per week to have a chainmail-like armor (depending on rq3/rqg rules), a Runelord need to block at least 10 RP to create shield-spell-with-one-year-duration for equalling the 1POW for 1AP ratio. In terms of POW cost, it was too much advantaging to create a permanent 1AP for 1POW only; For a RQ3 fan, I always hated the POW economy
  8. What is canon ? Easy : The Legendary ever-changing color T-shirt of Greg the Great The Vegan Carnivorous read as herbivorous Moro-Tapir And Any Thruth like "There is less gods in Glorantha" followed by "But we can't tell you the details, it will spoils the mysteries". You don't understand @Beorne ? Neither do any of us ! In doubt between two book, take the Biggest and Heaviest books* with the most reference about Danold the Duck and you'll hold the Truth. Duck are the Canon or 🤨 Duck are in the Canon !!? *Usually Glorantha encyclopedia : "The Guide to Glorantha
  9. I VOTE for this one : rules for grognards and lawyers 👍 Some will said your are a simulationnist, I will just said you have some rare around here ... some common sense. Yes, a human being don't suffer any brain damage after stop breathing about 2 minutes at least; I don't think gloranthan's humans are weaker than earth's human so I also consider at least 10 rd in dying state before treating a Character as dead. To add a little drama or manage the suspense, when reviving a dying man, a healer need to use a spell or a skills to -Get the dying man HP from negative to 0pt -Then
  10. Pro Arkati Mode ON 😈 First rule when dealing with lunars : Do you know when a lunar lie to you ? Their lips move ! Zorak Zoran rule when dealing with Chaotic : Do you know when a chaotic lie to you ? They still exist ! Lunars use the power of Rune of Moon and state of Illumination to hide their chaotic face and show off their untainted one. Like the moon, the try to hide their nature but we all know they still are chaotic. Lunars and Chaotic tell you that Glorantha is a bubble of order in an Ocean of Chaos, can you really trust them ? Illuminate know why you don't have to fear c
  11. As Harst you may have to go on a Quest like Harst when he try to get the hand of Yudam-aryam's daughter, The core of the quest should be a successive exchange of good/powers with friends to provide something for the Clan of the father-in-law. A good Adventure seed to create some relation and families ties. As Garzeen, you might follow the Genert Quest as Garzeen hae the duty to Re-assemble all missing piece of the old god because Garzeen try to seduce Fenela, Daughter of Froalar; She is now out of the god reach but as he promised to fullfill her request to reassemble the body of the Genert,

    The Thanatari It remind me of Warhammer 40K mechanical religion ... 🤣 Thanks to magic, most Gloranthan quest doesn't need aeons of research. There is a lot way to reconstruct such mechanism, the most classic way will be to ask a Lankhor's priest to "read" the history of the objet or convince him to decipher ancient grimoire with his gods disks. There is a lot lankhor of simple magic which could kill any investigation-plot or solve your "how do we use this ?" magical items/potions ! Another way, my favourite is to find an "old engineer" like "Leonardo the Scientist" who is know to be

    Has zistorite are a Gods-Learners creation, all their artefact and cult was destroy with the fall of Jrustela and every peoples linked to Zistor or any god learner creation meet the inquisition. Which usually mean if there is anything, it's well hidden, forgotten or very dangerous. Some Orlanthi who had plunder Zistor itself may have some creations as part of their regalia (like Lankhor MHY runes disks used for decipher grimoires) I will take the exemple of the "The Antikythera mechanism" : It's remnant was discover around 2 thousand year after the boat among wreckage retrieved from a shi
  14. Others Alternatives could be the Old "Borderlands" / "Shadows on the borderland" and the old Sand Box area "Griffin Mountain"... low fantasy, small area oriented scenario/campaign. If you're not afraid of PDF version, you got them on chaosium https://www.chaosium.com/runequest-classic-pdfs/.
  15. Great found Crel, I can envision how Ernalda, the courtesan, seduce Orlanth the dumb !!! Spell may be costly but I can clearly see a Game-of-Throne plot start : -Samastina, Ernalda Courtesan : Oh my lord, would you promise to love me faithfully for this year -RuneLord Garrath (not so in love) : Yes I promise !!! -Samastina, Ernalda Courtesan : One the name of Ernalda... -RuneLord Garrath (not so in love) : Yes, for the love of Ernalda (And your wealth) -Samastina, Ernalda Courtesan cast Arouse passion 5 (Love (Samastina) +100%) + Extension 5 (Duration 1 year) -RuneLord Garrath / If
