  1. Chaosium dragon logo flopped on BIG RUBBLE - any reason?

    Now if you have an intact copy of Griffin Mountain, I'll be really impressed (reversed wyrm or not). I've never seen any other books disintegrate quite so spectacularly.
  2. RQ - "one of the Great Games, a defining thing for our hobby"

    I don't think any system in which the best spell is "Take that, You Fiend" is classy :-) Or did you mean that it uses character classes?
  3. Tribal Edit Thread for Glorantha Sourcebook

    You would be shocked at how many native speakers with advanced degrees still get that wrong. I salute the French educational system.
  4. Pentan religion

    Arkat was a troll. The other theories are just human lies.
  5. Status of Eleven Lights?

    I missed that; thanks.
  6. Status of Eleven Lights?

    Hi! Are there any updates on the status of the dead tree edition of Eleven Lights? IIRC, it was due in December. Thanks, David.
  7. Aldryami vs uz

    I believe that there is actually a discussion of this in one of the Pavis supplements for RQ2 (?). While I don't remember the whole thing, I believe that the elf runelord, when asked how they would fight off ten times their number of trolls, explained that each of the elves would simply shoot ten arrows.
  8. Bits of Glorantha you ignore

    But "while gold by itself will not gain you good soldiers, good soldiers may readily get you gold."
  9. Setting Narrative Difficulty

    Thanks for the link. Out of curiosity, why is the "Mother of Monsters' adventure the only one not available in pdf? Or am I misreading it?
  10. 1652 Great Flood

    FWIW, I think that the trolls are saving the world (as usual). The firebergs are returning someday, and a nice big glacier would be the ideal way to stop them. The flooding is just collateral damage.
  11. Guide to Glorantha Group Read Week 10 - Deep Discussion

    One of the more interesting ideas from an interview with Sandy Petersen is that there was one superhero in all of time who embodied each rune. Harrek is death/destruction/conflict.
  12. Yelm Eclipsed

    Could there also be moments when, as the Blue Moon falls into Magasta's pool, it momentarily blocks the Sun (at least from certain angles)?
  13. What edition of Heroquest are you using?

    I had never realized that the phrase was part of a longer proverb. I feel a need to roll for illumination.
  14. Quickstart Rune Magic & Spirit Magic

    They are judged on more than just their trueness to Middle Earth. The are factors of fun and playability to consider as well. As far as "trueness to Middle Earth" actually goes, it's not all that cut and dried. There is a lot of gray areas where we don't know exactly how things "really" work in Middle Earth where various game designers try to fill things in as best they can. For example, are there only five Istari? Is Glorfindel really the same Glorfindel who died fighting a Balrog in an earlier age? We don't know for certain. Tolkien did change his mind on some things, and didn't explain or reveal other things. I don't think that this is something that fans will ever agree on. But my two clacks - when considering this, I always remember Professor M.A.R. Barker, creator of Tekumel. He (at least according to the people who played in his games) considered the "real" Tekumel to be a very gritty, low magic world. But when he GMed adventures, they were always high-magic, spectacular affairs. So if the creator of the world is willing to sacrifice "reality" in favor of fun, I think that it's fine to go for it. Thanks, David.
  15. Upcoming HQ publications?

    Cool. I'm looking forward to it.
