    Pavis in 1626

    Have been? Does that mean, the books are done basically? Or does it mean, work is on hold, because other projects became more important?
  2. Ok, so there is no 'canonical' explanation, just the usual speculation ... 😉
  3. Just never understood, why Minaryth Purple has not been resurrected afterwards - or was he, and I have missed something here?
  4. I've seen 10,000 B.C. just these days, which contains a very impressive part, in which the hero helps a (much bigger) smilodon, which is trapped under some fallen tree trunks. And shortly after that the smilodon helps the hero, when he is encircled by a whole initially hostile tribe. But communicating with the smilodon gets him the favour of this tribe. I could very well imagine, how this could happen in Glorantha, and how this could lead to relation between the hero and the big predator ...
  5. As far as I know Red Strings of Fate is not at all related to Glorantha ...
  6. I was able to give it try during *last year's" Eternal Con at Castle Stahleck. It was fun and did not take too much time.
  7. For this kind of setting I was recently tempted to have a look at 'Liminal' ...
  8. Could be this one: http://www.soltakss.com/pavis01.html#Timeline
  9. Ah, why does this create the image of a parrot in my mind, not of a sleeping earth priestess/goddess ... (Sorry for the digression, but couldn't resist ... 😉)
  10. And there was no auto-correcting software, when the first edition of King of Sartar was released in 1992. Or at least it was not as usual as it is now ...
  11. p.26: Section Aftermath, second paragraph The placeholder @ should be replaced with the real page number (which is p.24).
  12. That's in fact p.31 (PDF p.34)
  13. Please enlighten the ignorant: What is TTS?
  14. https://www.ebay.de/itm/SIGNED-Greg-Stafford-BRAND-NEW-The-Dara-Happan-Book-of-Emperors-1994-glorantha/114210378412?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3D937f7c95d51240df894cca8e17dbe59c%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D12%26rkt%3D30%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D114209051522%26itm%3D114210378412%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2386202%26algv%3DDefault&_trksid=p2386202.c100677.m4598 As you can see, this document is from 1994, so I think, @soltakss is right: The Fortunate Succession is the better choice, because the "Dara Happan Book of Emperors" is just an older version of the same document.
  15. Tried to use the above link, but all I've got was a PAGE NOT FOUND ...
  16. I select the passage to quote. Then a pop-up appears saying "Quote selection". I click on that pop-up and voila, the above quote appears in my input area. Or I use the Quote link at the bottom of every post, which creates a quote with the whole post in my input area, which I may or may not edit afterwards ...
  17. Did you see the Hillspeech entry? If you follow the link, it says among other things, that Hillspeech is know as Tarshite also ...
  18. Not sure, if you are aware of that, but just for completeness: While recently doing a research similar to this here about Ash Anvari: @Jeff himself confirmed @jajagappa's assumption from above, that Smithers is the same but incorrectly named village as Man Vill. He even provided an excerpt from his master maps regarding this area. In addition I've realised, that Man Vill is already on the Upland Marsh map in Wyrms Footnotes #15 and in Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes, p.321, which both stem from Tales of the Reaching Moon #19 ... With Tales of the Reaching Moon #19 from (I think) the year 2000 and the Dragon Pass Gazetteer map from 2003, it seems to be obvious, where the mistake was made ...

    Ash Anvari?

    Thanks for this excerpt of the master maps. By the way: just realized that Man Vill is already on the Upland Marsh map in Wyrms Footnotes #15 and in Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes, p.321, which both stem from Tales of the Reaching Moon #19 ... So nothing really new, but first time with a description (in Smoking Ruins) ...

    Ash Anvari?

    This is related to an older thread about Man Vill: I have a similar issue now with Ash Anvari. This village is mentioned in the adventure Law Staff Quest, which has been published in the Sartar Companion. In this adventure the village is described as a "public town" in the Beast Valley north of the Ghost Hills. There is even a map, but without putting the name on it. The map just show the way, the adventurers use to reach Arrowmound. So seems to be located south of Duck Point and South-West-West of Duck Ferry. So it could well be, that this again is the same place as Man Vill / Smithers. What do you think? Maybe @Jeff could enlight us here ...

    Terms for Rulers

    And that's quite obvious, as a goose is *not* a duck ...
  22. Yes, works now as expected. 👍
  23. Started with trying to download the SRD ... but all GitHub on questworls.chaosium.com related links fail with a 404 (Page not found) error currently ... Download from https://www.chaosium.com/questworlds-system-reference-document/ without any issue ...
  24. I do not think so: (Runequest - Roleplaying in Glorantha, p.144, bottom of right column) So per session you can: augment a specific ability once only using an ability for augmenting a task once only
