    Anyway i'm actually interested in the orginal subject and aim of the thread ? What is Pavis going to be like in 1625 -27 Which cults hold power? Which families fared well, which have done badly ? Does the city feel lawless or civlized? Is Argarath a good or bad ruler? Is it meet the new boss same as the old boss?

  4. As a player I play in RQG games and campaigns, my campaigns run on ST:G as it suits my style better. As regards what I write im going to focus on RQG as that is what most people want. I may bring ST:G out for some conference play one offs at some point.
  5. A few bits and bobs published since I last updated this thread; http://www.backtobalazar.com/elmal-runequest-cult-write-up/ http://www.backtobalazar.com/moonlighters-inn-new-pavis-write-up/ http://www.backtobalazar.com/plastic-28mm-figures-in-runequest-manufacturer-reviews/ http://www.backtobalazar.com/gloranthan-bronze-age/ http://www.backtobalazar.com/pavis-1618-1621-rumors/ http://www.backtobalazar.com/the-art-of-being-a-better-runequest-player/ http://www.backtobalazar.com/pavis-npcs-for-runequest-glorantha-post-1/
  6. OK a few questions about the process of becoming a shaman and the ordeal in particular; So as I understand it The horned man has a power of 35, which translates to a spirit combat skill of 175% So anyone fighting him in spirit combat will be fighting at there skill -75% Which in most cases in a 20% or less skill for the want to be shaman vs 100% skill for horned man The ordeal goes on for 1 to 6 rounds which means, which means most shamans will get around 3 restrictions and the one usual ability. My questions are; Have I understood the process right? What happens on a tied round where both pass skill? If the shaman breaks off at the end of a round , does he fail becoming a shaman or just loose the opportunity to gain more shamanic abilities?
  7. Cheers Jeff, I had missed that nuance.
  8. I've no firm opinion on the main point. Apart from I think I had just got used to Elmal then he is back as Yelmalio. People don't like unexpected change. They really don't like having 10 - 20 years to get used to unexpected change and then have everything change back again. Any movement like that whatever the merit of the argument will create resistance. My observation from spending most of my adult life with religious people is that we are a little bit nuts and have the capacity not to see the obvious, loose greater truths in arguing about very minor points, and are so committed to our beliefs that the slightest deviations can be seen as a very major issue. The chances of these different groups of seeing their cults, Gods and practices as one and the same if they really are may possibly be quite limited. Anyway I may be being an idiot here, but I thought Kargzant was analogous with Yelm. Did I get this wrong or is yelm analogous with Yelmalio too?
  9. Not to detract from Martin's sterling work, you can also get a very Gloranthan feel by mixing and matching, parts from different models. I just created a very believable(but unmounted) Grazelander figure by combining late Roman infantry body, Scythian style head and Mongol bow and quiver.
