  • RPG Biography
    Had some of my best RPG sessions in Glorantha several years ago.
    Always was fascinated by Glorantha since then.
    Did Fantasy role-playing over several years using a home-brew system heavily based on Runequest III and Hârnmaster.
  • Current games
    Just started to run my first HeroQuest campaign in Glorantha.
  • Location
    Munich, Germany
  • Blurb
    After more than 15 years of role-playing hiatus I'm back in a much more intense way than expected.
    Started to translate HeroQuest Glorantha into German language...

    Building Gringles

    This is ... awesome.
  2. Gee, forgot completely about that one ...
  3. One of the points, why Glorantha is so special to me, is the fact, that Glorantha is build completely on Myths and Legends, which are real not just stories. Most of these Myths and Legends happened in pre-historic times (i.e. before the Dawn of Time). And in a Heroquest you participate in one of these Myths or Legends, and in the best (or is it in the worst?) cases you will be able to change these Myths or Legends (and therefore changing Glorantha!). These changes can happen on different levels: personal, community/clan, tribe, kingdom/empire/nation or even world. And that's the power of Heroq
  4. By the way: 'The Cradle' is also in the Gloranthan Classic Pavis & Big Rubble, but as this is a compilation (with some minor additions) of the original books Pavis:Threshold to Danger and Big Rubble:The Deadly City, now again available in the Runequest Classic line, it should be identical.
  5. I think, there is a misunderstanding. The Sartar Book (Box?) will be a guide to Sartar only. The Sartar Campaign (which is kind of an equivalent to the Boy King/Great Pendragon Campaign for Pendragon) will be a completely different product. At least, that's how I understand, what I have read here so far. Could well be, that I'm wrong.
  6. I think (pure guessing from my side 😉 ), generally sell poorly means published books in Community Content Programs - not just the Jonstown Compendium, but all the Community Content Programs available on DriveThruRPG - and as far as I know there are several of them. I agree, that the quality of the published books in the Jonstown Compendium is very impressive. But that's the only Community Content Program, that I know. Even for Chaosium's other Community Content Program, The Miskatonic Repository, I have no idea, if the quality is as high as in the Jonstown Compendium, and if the number of
  7. And here is the official answer / explanation: So the links in the OP need to be adapted accordingly (which is not a small task ...)
  8. The Vault, which contained all the PDFs from Hero Wars and HeroQuest 1, has disappeared from the Chaosium online shop. Could well be, that this happened in the context of the 'Stay In and Game' Warehouse Clearance Sale, but as far as I can say, this has never been announced officially. (I do not assume, that "While stocks last!" applies to PDF only articles 😉). Or do I miss something?
  9. The whole Vault has disappeared (which contained PDF's of all the Hero Wars and HeroQuest 1 books). Not sure, if this is intentional or if it is a mistake ...
  10. Which has been integrated already into the Timeline of Third Age Dragon Pass at the Well of Daliath.
  11. Which exactly made me think about this question again, because I have no idea, what this should mean ...
  12. This may be quite obvious for native English speaker, but for me - being from Germany - I had my issues with the term Temple of the Reaching Moon right from the beginning. So far I see the following meaning of Reaching: achieving a goal arriving at a location gaining/winning an object outreaching something (a person? a location?) reaching out to grasp something joining up probing into something The first two are my current favourites, but all the others (or even a combination) could be correct too. So I would like to hear your opinion abo
  13. Could it be, that you think of Notes from Pavis (especially the Mythras Encounter Generator)?
  14. My first thought was: Aren't these more a Shaman's tools than the tools of a sorceress?
