  • 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. So....

    @Rick Meints I misunderstood, then. I thought that the intention was to release a Runequest publication one per month following release of the main rules.
  2. So....

    @styopa Pretty sure that the date prior to the quick start was gen con 2017.
  3. So....

    Wasn't it also supposed to be released at Gencon 2017? It kinda makes me doubt the one release a month schedule that was touted a while back. Sadly the date seems to be as elusive as that for 13th Age. I had hoped the switch to Chaosium would improve the scheduling issues. Inshallah.
  4. The Eleven Lights artwork

    Keep in mind that what artwork there is in the book comes almost entirely from King of Dragon Pass, which was released something like twenty years ago.
  5. Weapon Damages

    GURPS Low Tech has a supplement that contains all the math and tables you need to build whatever custom bow your mind could possibly imagine. Certainly one must tailor one's expectations to the content at hand.
  6. My map of Volsaxiland

    That's pretty damn incredible.
  7. Bits of Glorantha you ignore

    I ignore the gonzo stuff, because while I detest the overly self important attitude taken by some, I also prefer to run my games with a serious tone (which admittedly sounds self important...) Other than that, I try to stay close to Glorantha as written because I like the challenge and novelty of portraying different cultures. I do tend to elide stuff like "Loko Moko", which just makes players laugh and robs the moment of any gravity.
  8. Really great piece of art. Can't wait to see what the rest of the book looks like.
  9. Status update?

    Sure. Who's talking about the new game? Who's excited about RuneQuest: Glorantha? For a game that was supposed to be coming out at the end of this year, there's not much talk. The only reviewers of the Quickstart that I saw were people who are already Glorantha devotees. Look, I'm not trying to be a prophet of doom, and I'm sure RQG will sell just fine, but let's not walk down the primrose path.
  10. @g33k It's a cash grab in that his conversion to the Flat Earth belief is a blatantly calculated move to generate funds for his pet project.
  11. @g33k It's almost embarrassing how blatant of a cash grab it is. From what I remember, he failed to get funding for this a few years ago, before his "conversion" to the truth of the Flat Earth. He then re-branded his space program to be an exploration of the atmosflat, and tried again -- successfully. I suppose I can admire his dedication, if nothing else. Perhaps he makes up in a certain sort of animal cunning what he lacks in common sense.
  12. Status update?

    I don't really think there is a flame to keep burning, as I certainly don't see people taking about this game online except to comment on the silly name debate or to dig into the kerfuffle between Chaosium and The Design Mechanism.
  13. Status update?

    I've got to say it's a little concerning that the top Google result for Runequest Glorantha is a Chaosium blog post from April 7th of this year. I could certainly be wrong, but it doesn't seem like people are talking about this game anywhere other than here. I'm going to buy it, people on this forum are going to buy it, but for those people who don't already know about it... how are they being brought into the fold?
  14. What was Belintar up to?

    Isn't he like Sedenya in that way: though he changes form, he is always Belintar -- and isn't that a kind of Stasis? Though Sedenya has many names and many shapes through Her lives, She is always One.
