    Currently having my own RPG renassaisance. Games I grew up with included Runequest 2, RuneQuest 3, Tunnels & Trolls, D&D, and Warhammer 1ed.

    The Grognard files (podcast) Is largely responsible for getting me back into RPG's. I highly recommend listening to their excellent podcasts:

    My first game back was Traveller on roll20 playing through the Traveller Adventure with the Grognard files posse. We've also played some short one off's with StormBringer, and Judge Dredd. Currently playing through D&D 5ed Storm Kings Thunder.

    RuneQuest was always my favourite game back in the day. Very excited at the prospect of the new edition. Every thing after RQ3 passed me by. I backed the RuneQuest Classic kickstarter, and proudly took part in the Free RPG day playing through the RQG quickstart game with GM @dimbyd

    Picked up the excellent Cthulhu 7ed and hope to play it someday.

    RQG Preview - more of the Bestiary

    Ah My bad...and this post by Dimbyd:
  2. Looking through the blog entries I was reminded of the rather wonderful looking RQG character sheet. Not in the new core book, what happened to it? https://www.chaosium.com/blog/designing-the-new-runequest-part-21/

    I'm really liking the integration of the Runes in the new Runequest. It succinctly brings conceptual aspects to the fore right into the mechanics of the game. For instance the appearance of Aldryami. I imagine the stronger the man rune the more manlike the appearance. Particular helpful when dealing with outsiders.

    *Screeches back into the forums from 2047 in his Delorean time machine , with his crazed enthused scientist appearance* Guys you're not going to believe this! Its RuneQuest, theres' new adventures and everything! Its Awesome! D&D have licensed the RQ OGL to produce their own game in an attempt to stay popular!

    Marvellous - building a wealth of inspiring Gloranthan art. Nice to see justice done to the plant people. The drawings are really nice too. More!! *Jumps in time machine to tell younger self with newly purchased Elder Secrets, not to worry everything is going to be ok*
  10. The RQ Bestiary, which will be available very soon, has the information required to play a variety of different races.There's a 16 page preview available from the RQG product page, and we'll be sharing another big chunk of the Bestiary in the next pre-release list mail-out. Looking forward to the bestiary. The sample creatures are great. The drawings are really nice. You have an illustrator who can really describe the sense form and texture characteristic of a plantness in the “Runner”. Looking forward to seeing the elves. Nice realisation of the duck. It’s all top notch stuff. Bring on the bestiary!

    RuneQuest roleplaying in Glorantha yes or no?

    Thanks for the explanation, that’s really helpful

    RuneQuest roleplaying in Glorantha yes or no?

    I’ve never quite understood what this is in game terms? Is this refering to how RQ3 gets more specific with movement in SR’s?

    RQG: how much RQ3 still in it?

    Good point I can't see any rule for disarm attempts in RQG, apart from as an outcome from the fumble table.

    RQG: how much RQ3 still in it?

    Still need proper time on the excellent new RQG, but i'm really liking the possibilities and greater immersion and variety in character generation, love how its opening up Esrolia and other areas. Little modifiers to characterise different backgrounds are giving real flavour. The Bison riders are pretty cool. That being said and to keep this thread on track, I noticed that how damage is taken in the hit locations is more RQ3 aligned then RQ2. IIRC RQ2 had a flat 6pts in excess of hit points to sever or maime a limb, no matter the size/scale of the creature. In RQ3 and RQG it scales with the actual hit points in the location, needing in excess of triple location hit points. So I guess thats a nod to the scalability that RQ3 introduced in this regards.
  15. I love baboons and their monkey myths. One of the first RQ2 characters my older brother made me play.
