    Tribal edit for RuneQuest Gamemaster Screen Pack

    pg 63, Brightflower's Rune Points are listed as dedicated to Issaries, but she's only a lay member and her Rune Spells match Ernalda, who she is an intiaite of, so I assume this is a mistake and her Rune Points are for Ernalda. The same is true of Gooseberry, on the next page. His spells match Eurmal, whom he is an Initiate of, though his Rune Points are listed as Issaries.

    GM Screen Pack coming in PDF on September 14

    Everything is beautiful and top-notch so far as I'm going through it, my only gripe is that the Dragon Pass map is hard to read. I wish it were in the same style as the South Peloria Map (which I think is the same as the Dragon Pass map in the Glorantha Sourcebook).

    Rules Clarification Question, Sleep, Attacks 100%+

    I think it is because the drop to 100% isn't considered a modifier.

    Characteristic Point Recovery

    Is there a natural rate of recovery for points of characteristics lost due to disease or attacks like the bloodbird's blood drain, or can these only be recovered via a Recover Health spell?

    RQG Glorantha Bestiary Corrections Thread

    The core book gives a general sense of whether each type of poison is usually slow or fast-acting, but it would really help if the poisonous creatures in the Bestiary specified for each creature whether their poison is fast or slow-acting. Also, giving the category it falls into would be helpful in terms of adjudicating antidotes quickly. As it is, all it says for each that it is a "systemic poison", which doesn't really need saying because all beast-delivered poisons are. What would be more useful for wyvern (page 129), instead of: "The sting injects a systemic poison of a POT equal to the CON of the wyvern." make it: "The sting injects fast-acting wyvern venom of a POT equal to the CON of the wyvern."

    On pg. 126, the end of the first paragraph ends with "they will obey only a virgin female." would read better as "they will only obey a virgin female."

    On page 115 in Triceratopses, "liveta in herds" should be "live in herds". Also, the Average for INT and POW are swapped (or the characteristics are swapped).

    RQG Glorantha Bestiary Corrections Thread

    There are several references to acid, giving it a POT, but I see nothing in the core rules or the bestiary speaking to how this is applied. Is it just done like poison, as a resistance roll using CON to determine if it is full or half damage?

    RQG Glorantha Bestiary Corrections Thread

    There are several references to "25 melee rounds" (pages 97, 106, 107). This is a "full turn", as defined in the core book, so I don't understand why that term wouldn't be used instead?

    On page 99, when describing Gorp attacks, it doesn't really make it clear if the entire victim is engulfed on a failed DEXx5 roll or just one hit location.

    The Zorak Zoran spell "Create Zombie" on page 82 should say "This spell creates a zombie (see page 129)" instead of "This spell creates a revenant (see page 123)".

    p.48 It says that Men-and-a-Half "needs no more than a liter of liquid water to survive" but doesn't indicate what the time span is. One liter a week? A lifetime?

    Fatleaf Hotpot

    Huh, "leaf fat" is the pork equivalent of suet. I wonder if that is what is being referred to?

    Fatleaf Hotpot

    I gotta ask, what is a "Fatleaf Hotpot" (under Food)?

    Sartar Question

    The table on p 64 (Friends, Allies, and Enemies) doesn't seem to work. For one thing, it doesn't account for War or Peace tribes. Second, it seems to be swapped, so war-like tribes have more friends and peaceful tribes have more enemies. Finally, the example Varmandi tribe (a War tribe with 15W War and no Peace rating) is said to have "1 friend, 2 allies, and 4 enemies", which on the table seems to be the result for 12 War and 12W Peace. Am I reading it wrong, or has a fixed version ever been presented?
