  1. I think I remember, that it was mentioned as part of the Runequest Starter Set, but I may be completely wrong here ...
  2. Not (yet?) fixed on the Chaosium web site - at least not for my account ... 😢
  3. In the text the name of the hamlet is always Farfield, on all the maps it's Fairfield. What's the correct name? (I guess, it's Farfield, but I wanted to be sure ...)
  4. Thanks for the effort, David! Small remark: the keyboard displays on the page link show the same runes for lower and upper case ...
  5. Aaah, Gen Con ... sadly completely wrong continent 😟 So may you consider to do something similar for The Kraken in October? (Given the books are not yet available in print officially, which I do not expect currently ...)
  6. Harald (aka @jajagappa) runs his campaigns on the RPGGeek web site in the format of Play-by-Forum games these days (I'm a lucky participant in two of them 😍). So I guess, what you're looking for is his Nochet Campaign. In addition you can find the Nochet, City of Queens page on glorantha.com. I may be wrong, but I was under the impression, that the Nochet map on this page is from @jajagappa too ...
  7. I could imagine, that Donandar entertainers use their illusion magic to create effects similar to fireworks on our blue marble without any need for black powder ...
  8. There is an example adventure in HeroQuest - Roleplaying in Glorantha (aka HQ1), which has the title Chasing Kites. This adventure is about recovering a sacred kite, which has been stolen by a giant raven during a kite-fighting contest. Here the kites are used in the context of ancestor worship.
  9. Sources about the Temple of the Wooden Sword I know of: Wyrms Footprints - a whole 7 page article telling the story of the Temple of the Wooden Sword from its beginning until the end in 1615. Sartar Companion - several bits of information in the context of Clearwine Fort description, the Old Wind Temple description and the "Gifts of Stone" adventure, which is located in the Sazdorf troll clan area.
  10. Yes, this is a serious and valid question. But my main objection would be: player characters are not average characters. So with MGF in mind I would refrain from using these quantifiable differences in the character creation process. Unless the players want to do it, but I do not see, why they should ... So basically I do not see that as something missing in the rules. It's up to the players and the GM to decide, if they want to play it that way.

    Dragon Pass cuisine

    I know, that Claudia Loroff was working a Gloranthan cookbook (see question 6 in the referenced interview), but I have no information about the current state, and if it will ever happen for real (the blog entry is roughly one year old ...).
  12. I don't recall any notice to that regard. Nobody is nagging, but it would be nice to have. ... From the Stretch Goals list on the Guide to Glorantha Kickstarter campaign page: I guess, that's what's meant here. But I've never seen the Companion Gazetteer, so I can not tell, if this monograph has been included or not ...

    Me goes with the "bee" ... 😉
  14. 1. Using a flashlight has a visual effect 2. People on this Earth don't consider it cheating, especially if you use a flashlight for enhancing your sight during dusk or dawn. There is no difference between using a technical device and training your eyes to see better (especially during dusk or dawn). 3. So using a technical device, which has a visual effect, but there is no difference between using it or your own eyes only. Does that make sense?
  15. Another good story for getting an impression, what Glorantha is, is the web comic Prince of Sartar. Although it is not yet complete, it contains already six great chapters, which give a good introduction, how Glorantha and how a game in Glorantha could work ...
  16. Ah, I see, Adventurers are the Redshirts of Glorantha ... 😉
  17. Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't incompatible just mean, that it is not possible to cast both spells at the same time? I do not see, that you cannot learn both of them ...
  18. I wouldn't call it a victory, as the players do not get the prize, which was the ultimate goal of the contest. But yes, the defeat may not as deadly as it could be (depends on the Most Game Fun objective used by the player group).

    Robin's Book?

    I think this 'long and storied history' is one of the main reasons, why Chaosium these days is so reluctant in announcing official release dates for new products - which looking at the last releases makes a lot of sense, because now you know, if they say a release is coming, then it is really avaiable in a relatively short time frame ...

    1) I would say the length is including blade and hilt, i.e. overall (but I may be wrong here ...) 2) that's still a Broadsword. Or why do you think there should be a different name?
  21. While we are talking about the PDF section of the Gamemaster Screen Pack: Similar to the hard copy this section contains several map PDFs, especially and My question is about the South Peloria maps. Similar to the Dragon Pass maps there seem to be two versions of the South Peloria maps with different sizes. For the Dragon Pass maps the one with the smaller size is the map drawn by Darya Makarava, the other one is the more artistically map by Olivier Sanfilippo. So my expectation was, that the same is true for the two South Peloria maps. But in fact both links provide the same map - the map drawn by Darya Makarava (albeit in different compression - which is the reason for the different sizes). So the question here is: Is this, what was planned. Or was something different planned. I have never seen a South Peloria map in the same style as the Dragon Pass map by Olivier Sanfilippo, so my expectation was wishful thinking probably, but anyway these two links providing the same map is at least at bit confusing. So inquiring mind wants to know, if something is wrong here or not. Not sure, if this question should go to @Jason Durall, @Rick Meints or @Dustin O'Chaosium ...
