  • 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...

  1. While being a player in @jajagappa's PbF game I've never had an issue with using them as personality trait as well as a magical base. And this makes sense with respect to, how Glorantha is defined: Everything is based on the Runes. Runes are for Glorantha, what atoms are for our world. So they influence everything, regardless if it is magic or a personality trait.
  2. A Rune Master was not a Rune Master since his Initiation into the respective cult. So he has learned the respective spirit spell sometime on his way to becoming a Rune Master from another Rune Master - maybe at a different temple, and maybe even after he has become a Rune Master. That a Rune Master was not available over all this time is quite improbable. And if it was the case indeed, than he was not able to learn that spell, and therefore he is not able to teach it.
  3. Patience is a virtue - and it seems to be the most important geas for all Runequest addicts ...
  4. Yes, these are the text passages, that I was referencing to. So the only remaining open question is still, if this concept is used officially in Runequest:Roleplaying in Glorantha. But if we do not get an official answer (hi, @Jeff😉) here in this thread, it could well be possible, that the answer could be found in the upcoming Starter Set (which, as far as I know, will include a guide to Jonstown and therefore a description of the Jonstown library, I guess).
  5. That triggers another question: for some reason I was under the impression, that the Alien Combination Machine is *not a unique* tool - very rare, yes, but not unique. Not sure, if I have read that somewhere, or if this is just my own imagination. According to the Sartar Companion, there is on in the Jonstown Library. According to Pavis:Gateway to Adventure there is another one in the Lhankor Mhy temple in Pavis. So if there has been another one in the Holy Country, that would be three already. But I may be wrong here ... Anyway once again I would like to know, what the official, can
  6. I interpret this, that I should read these two books again (I really liked them, when I did it several years ago) for getting some hints regarding our current campaign ... 😉
  7. One of the concepts, that I really like in Heroquest:Glorantha, is the Alien Combination Machine, which made it possible to give the Orlanthi access to Sorcery, which normally is seen as corrupted and dangerous, and therefore has to be avoided. I think it would be a great explanation, why Lhankor Mhy sages in Runequest:Roleplaying in Glorantha are now able to use Sorcery, but so far this Alien Combination Machine has not been mentioned in any of the new Runequest books. It's clear, that I could use it in my Runequest games exactly for this, but I would like to know, what the official
  8. So that means Sacred Time between 1626 and 1627, right? Or does it mean Sacred Time between 1627 and 1628?
  9. Wait, the Cinder Pits are an entry to hell? Which one? Or just an entry to the underworld.? Anyway, is this canon? Can you provide any source for this information?
  10. On Facebook @Jeffhas been asked, if episode 29 has been the campaign finale, and the answer was a clear 'nope' . Also the Twitch schedule shows a session entry for next Saturday. Both points are clear hints, that we have a break currently, but we still can expect more ...
  11. Done at last! Thanks to a current break in the session sequence of this campaign, I was able to catch up a bit sooner than expected. From now on I will add new entries for every new episode as soon as possible after they are available at YouTube.
  12. I had pictures of Captain America using his shield in defence as well as for attacking in my head immediately ...
  13. Session 4 of the White Bull Campaign (Chaosium's current Runequest House Campaign) on YouTube has Cwim in the battle between the Lunar Army and Argrath's army of Praxian nomads.
  14. Just realized, that the Spring Equinox is marked on two days in the Gloranthan Calendar, which is part of the Gamemaster Screen Pack for Runequest:Roleplaying in Glorantha: on day 30 (Waterday/Stasis Week) of Earth Season as well as on day 9 (Waterday/Fate Week) in Sacred Time. My understanding is, that the latter is correct. The former should be the Autumn Equinox, as far as I know. This error appears in the printed version of the calendar as well as in the latest version (1.01) of the PDF.
