  1. We are all Arkat. Death to the deceiver, Gbaji!
  2. It struck me that I've seen this system evolve since HW first came out, and it still could use a serious editing pass and a much better explanation. Is this the only game system Robin designed that suffers this badly from being underdeveloped?
  3. While I think @soltakss is on the right track, I wonder if the problems are not just Hero Points? Would it work by just ditch them? You roll, learn to live with the results, or initiate a new contest after some action have been taken to change the situation?
  4. Arkat campaigned for years against Gbaji, and killed and dismembered his corpse. Let the Deceiver lie dead. "Canon" is the great Deceiver. All hail Arkat! ...just don't make such a fuss, it's just about having fun.
  5. Thanks both of you. I tried Wayback machine, and failed.
  6. Did anyone save this data before g+ went dark? https://www.glorantha.com/todays-sneak-peak-a-glimpse-at-safelster-this-is-one-of-the-most-urbanized-areas-of-glorantha-with/
  7. 😆 But, seriously, I think the long fallow time has not exactly helped the sales figures. It will be interesting to see what the generic edition can do for it.
  8. To make things worse for the line, I suspect less buyers will buy the book if it comes out so long after the last one. It's absurd to talk about "dead" game lines, but that's psychology for you...
  9. Thanks Richard. I'm in the very early stages, and for now just thinking out loud about what can be done. I have run a voice chat game of Forbidden Lands on discord, and it was surprisingly much like a table game, so that's what I'm aiming for. PbP is a bit too slow for me.
  10. Hi Anyone around here played HQ on Discord? Hints or suggestions for dice bots or suchlike?
  11. The little phrase ""What my mother's sister told me", the female viewpoint on Sun County life" made me very curious, as I find Sun County a very cool place to have adventures. Do you have that text around @Jane or do someone else?
  12. If you'd be inclined to share, it would be really interesting to see the one for Nochet/Esrolia.
  13. I *love* so see that if you manage to dig it up and feel like sharing. I'm so interested in that part of Glorantha, it's definitely my favourite place.
  14. By the way, removing that Windows 10 blocker might be a way to make this work, just saying.
  15. I want a linux version, or at least one that can be run on Steam Play for linux.
  16. I have now seen multiple mentions of a chained simple contest as a way to handle an extended conflict. Could any of you who use that method post an example of how that looks like? Thanks!
  17. I consider myself to be among the old dudes. I agree with the whole analysis, but I just hope sales keep up and bring in new people. It's always the recruitment thing that's key. But, whatever! We are here, HQ is here, RQ is here and it's game on!
  18. Horray! More HQ love. I also see why Chaosium focus on what makes money, and RQ is a traditional game that people can recognize. But, I am silently wondering how much of the sales are old people who never let go of RQ in the first place? When I started playing, it was the veneered ancestor that was so important for all new games, but it was showing its age and clunkyness. It sounded very strange to me to bring it back and I still have no interest at all in playing it, as I never did when I was young. But, what do I know of the market forces...

    Too many fans care way to much about canon. Those books have some great fun stuff. Take what you want and run with it. Ignore canon. It's a false god.
  20. Thanks @JonL I like that approach to Flaws. I now think I have gotten a better understanding of what it takes. We'll see if I get to try this out soon. Our wuxia campaign just ended, and we'll see what we play after that.
  21. I started to wonder whether the amount of keywords related to those additional points made some special sense, that is if 5 keywords was a special case, but know realized that with those additional points you can buy many new keywords, so keywords are nothing special in relation to other abilities and relationships, right? I'm beginning to see now how an adaption to Fading Suns might take shape.
