  1. I'm interested in helping out and have sent an email. I'm the content administrator for Project: Redcap so have experience with content creation and management.
  2. It's not the official Terra Map, but there's an image of the Théah continent in the virtual backgrounds download page.
  3. That's the way I understand how to roleplay villains from my read of the rules as written. I've not actually played 7th Sea (yet!), but I'd run it that way at first and see how it plays out. Then if it doesn't work well at the table using RAW then I'd make adjustments with house rules.
  4. This Kickstarter for Pig Orc miniatures isn't Gloranthan, but I like the old school look of the figures. It's how I've always envisioned Orcs. Maybe one day the company will consider doing a set of authentic Dog-Lizard Kobolds. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/boxturtlereb/28mm-old-school-pig-orcs-by-the-legendary-kev-adams
  5. @Sir_Godspeed Thanks for sharing the links to the Mierce Miniatures that could work for Glorantha species. I love the Scorpionman!
  6. MadKnight has launched a new Kickstarter project to fund additional Glorantha miniatures!
  7. @Dissolv Beautiful miniatures, as always. I love the Prax tribes on the march and especially the High Llamas! I picked up a couple of the High Llamas and have applied primer, but haven't had a chance to paint them yet. I've been busy with the day job for a few months and haven't devoted any time to painting miniatures. I plan to spend some time painting this weekend since we're expecting rain and it will be a good time to stay in and work on my Glorantha figures. On another note -- Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day from NASA features the Crimson Bat!
  8. My next step in "campaigning" RQG with my gaming group is to run The Broken Tower with interested players. I'll permit players to create characters, as I did with my family when I ran The Broken Tower (see my prior post in this discussion thread), or they can play one of the pre-generated characters. I originally scheduled to run The Broken Tower at this year's DragonCon convention, but since it's essentially canceled (there are some online events happening), I can focus my energy on my regular gaming group. My hope is that after experiencing RQG through this quick start adventure some of the
  9. @jajagappa Thank you for compiling and sharing these notes. I don't use FB so it's very much appreciated!
  10. I think it's great when family games together. This first session I GMed was with my sons. Did you run a published adventure, or create one of your own? How many players did you have? - - - - I'm not a experienced Runequest GM, but I started playing RPGs in the early 80s and have GMed a wide variety of games since then. I'm used to large groups of players. During the 90s I had a regular weekly gaming group which consisted of 7-9 consistent players, and on occasion when we one of us visitors from out of town we could go up one or two more players. I recall one session with a tot
  11. @Dissolv I'm glad you like the runes. They're not easy to do, and with my aging eyes I have to use a large magnifying lamp to assist with painting. I also use the Citadel painting handle which helps tremendously with steadying a figure and keeping hand muscles relaxed. I'm probably good for a few more years unless arthritis sets in.... My basing is not specific to the Big Rubble, but I am looking forward having the Runequest Glorantha game I just started with my sons to eventually go there. They're in the area around Clearwine Fort right now since I just ran them through the Broken Tower
  12. Here's my pic dump of recent completions. The first two are the front and back of the Lance and Laser Hero Wars figures for Lunar Warband #2, Yanafil Tarnils Warrior (note the red skin), and Lunar Officer. Pics 3 & 4 are the different sides of the Lance and Laser Hero Wars Babeester Gor Axe Maiden, Bad Squiddo Miniatures Hera Amazon Champion, and a Wizkids Unpainted miniature for a Female Human Sorcerer (IIRC) that I made into an Ernalda Earth Priestess complete with bodice allowing breasts to be exposed. Pic 5 has two Lance and Laser Hero Wars figures of Minaryth Purple
  13. Beautiful paint on your figures @Dissolv The white shields on the Sun Dome Templars do shine brightly. The werewolf, spirit wolf, and jack-o-bear are excellent! I like the Yanafil Tarnils incarnation. Both it and the large Orlanth one are nice figures and fit in quite well for Glorantha.
  14. We started the game and it was extremely fun. We made a few mistakes during combats, such as allowing more actions (mis-calculated strike ranks to reload a self bow, for instance) or allowing mixed actions (magical and melee attacks) in the same round, but we fixed it along the way. We're not new to RPGs, but just new to Runequest. We played through The Broken Tower quick start and made it last 4 game sessions! Mainly because we only played 1.5 to 2 hours each night, and also because I extended the encounter with Carthalo and interspersed bits of Glorantha mythology and the Runes during h
  15. I've looked at Victrix's "Warriors of Carthage" set at a FLGS and have considered purchasing it. I may at some point, but I have such a large backlog of figures to assemble and paint that it may be a while before I make that purchase. I do have Victrix's Macedonian Greek Successor Heavy Cavalry set and will eventually use the set for Glorantha figures. I just started a "quarantine-enforced" RQG game this week with two family members that is going very well. One day was for character creation. And we played through two sessions of The Broken Tower quick start. We're taking our time and add
