  • RPG Biography
    I started off as a wargamer and slowly was drawn into RPGs, which now almost exclusively comprise my gaming activities. I started by playing Dark Heresy and then moved to other games such as Hollow Earth, Space: 1889, Deadlands, Renegade Legion, The Morrow Project, Shadowrun, GURPS, Anima, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Nights Black Agents, Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, Runequest 6, and Feng Shui 2.

    Once I got started I felt like I wanted to try my hand at being the gamemaster rather than a player. I ran a short campaign in Robin Crossby's Harnworld using the Harnmaster rules before discovering Glorantha and running The Colymar Campaign in Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes. I have also run other short Gloranthan campaigns of my own creation using both Heroquest and Runequest 6.

  1. People buy things because they look pretty. Later tonight on local news, we have John with a breaking report that the sky is blue and that water is wet.
  2. Sometimes you just aren't good enough -- adventurers should be made to remember that. As Rick said in the other thread... "it is the doom of men that they forget."
  3. I find it a vulgar term, but to each his own. That being said, @styopa is very right in saying that there is a wellspring of inspiration in video games -- or really any medium involving storytelling. It would be foolish to ignore it out of some misguided sense of genre purity. Great artists steal, after all.
  4. I would be very interested in a line of paper minis for Glorantha.
  5. The use of the word "demigod" is going to determine whether you buy Runequest? I admire your conviction, if not your arrogance. I've got to say, this thread is living proof that there is nothing too trivial for a group of old men (or Glorantha fans) to argue over.
  6. I thought I had heard that a second quickstart was in the works. Maybe that was for next year.
  7. @Richard S.Could be. I know that the draconic corruption was localized in the blue tiles that faced the walls. Perhaps that was all that was added by the EWF?
  8. Never disputed that Clearwine is older than the EWF, but I thought it was pretty clearly stated that the walls were constructed by the dragonfriends. After all, it was Chief Colymar who purified them of their draconic taint.
  9. The walls of Clearwine were built by the EWF, after all, so I don't think the style indicates anything particularly Orlanthi, except insofar as the Orlanthi may have copied it after the resettlement.
  10. The Dara Happans number the years in the tens of thousands. Their calendar stretches back to 100,000 years before the Dawn. Whether you believe that or not, Gloranthan "history" does stretch back to the time before Time. In many ways, Glorantha is a post-apocalyptic world, with the magical and wondrous civilizations of the God Time being cast down and shattered by the destruction of the Gods War.
  11. @styopa I agree. Seems like it might be more likely that such material would be included in any forthcoming region books.
  12. @Roko Joko Have we really reached a point where wooden swords are too frightening?
  13. I can't really say I agree with any of those statements, but if you feel that strongly about it, I'm not going to try and dissuade you.
