  1. All your questions & more have been gloriously answered long ago in part 48 of the (Argrath the) Gwandor Saga!
  2. Yeah, just like "fighting fire with fire!"
  3. Klosters! (Sorry, couldn't resist... )
  4. ... yeah, Maboder annihilation ! Apparently, 1602 (Fall of Sartar)-1655 (Moonfall) with a lot of details -season by season- between 1625-1628, less between 1629-1655 (yearly basis) & even less for the recent past, 1602-1624, but still more than we've ever had!?! Quite a tantalizing program... wait & see.
  5. ... he was murdered by Humakti assassins in 1624 shortly before the Dragonrise.
  6. You got that right, @Steve! @Newt Newport's Glorantha Aventures: New Beginnings, Issue 1 (2001) is indeed a scenario for HQ:CR (2009) & as we all know & as Newt repeats on p. 7: NPCs do not have any stats in HQ2 (HQ:CR/ HQ:G)! But the indomitable @soltakss also has an answer for this one!
  7. The Chaosium's own John Wick has some very nice things to say about game balance as well, but the short of it is: "In a roleplaying game, game balance does not matter. Let me say that again: In a roleplaying game, game balance does not matter. What matters is spotlight. Making sure each player feels their character had a significant role in the story. They had their moment in the spotlight. Or, they helped someone else have their significant moment in the spotlight."
  8. We've known for some time now that YGWV also means Your Game Will Vary, but I guess it also means Your Gini (coefficient) Will Vary!
  9. I thought just like you, but now @Jeff has released a sketch of Jonstown for a forthcoming product & it includes a temple to Yelmalio. He has also hinted that each major city of Sartar has got one.
  10. There is no better canonical source. We will have to wait until the release of the Grand RuneQuest Campaign to know more, I guess. In the mean time, you can see how the Battle of Queens played in Martin Laurie's magnificent Hero Wars/ HeroQuest Gwandor Saga's episode 55 here.
  11. Oooooh, I like it! I will have to Google Cult as I am dimly aware of it. Else, Blades in the Dark... of the Moon!?! Lovely but no, no, no: 1625! Think Red Army units stranded in Sartar after the Dragonrise! Escape from, say, Apple Lane: in his last dying breath Tatius the Not-So-Bright-Anymore asked Etyries, messenger to the Goddess to send in the clear to all units the following cryptic message: "“Good Luck. You’re on your own now.”
  12. A short time ago on Facebook @Ian Cooper wrote something that might be worth preserving & commenting here as well (also for those who are not on FB): I don't know how & when YGMV came up, but I always detested it. I don't remember it coming from Greg himself, by the way. For me, it was always WILL & not MAY... as in Your Glorantha Will Inevitably Vary & Cannot Do Otherwise (YGWIVACDO)! Anyway, Ian really nails it & says it very, very, very nicely.
  13. Sadly we can't ask the Arkati-Shaman-Trickster himself anymore. 😥
  14. By all means, yes! Rubble Runners & Ravines, as well!?!? Moonbusters! Price of Freedom: Roleplaying in Occupied Dragon Pass! Empire: The Masquerade! Ars Runica! Man, Myth & Magic: Glorantha! King Argrath Dragonlord (KAD) RPG! Prince Argrath: The Storytelling Game! Elf, Troll, Dwarf & DragonewtQuest! RunePunk: 1620! Shadowrune! Middle Air Role Playing (MARP)! The One Rune!
