  1. The setting is very much like the Hyborian Age, with fewer anachronisms, and more sand. Its been tied to various rulesets over the last 12 years or so (d20, Legend, Pathdinder 1e, D&D 5e, and others) so there are releases in all them, and some in multiple systems; The Spider God's Bride is in both d20 and Legend, for example. For d100, Mongoose Legend has at least 3 titles. https://xoth.net/publishing/index.htm has free players guides to download.
  2. I know Morten had talks with Chaosium about the possibilty of bringing the World of Xoth to the RQ ruleset. Alas, it was not to be, which is a great pity. But S&S is full of great pities. Very keen to see a new edition of this. And curious to know more about Xyserdon. Anything to share?
  3. Is it this? https://www.quotev.com/quiz/12386274/What-Gloranthan-Cult-should-you-join I got Irippi Ontor too.
  4. Definitely an interesting read. I will make sure to catch each issue. Well done!
  5. You are too modest, Mr. Hibbs. My group might never have got past character creation without those sheets. Now we use them as the default for creating and maintaining Adventurers, only adding an additional tally sheet for skill improvements from each adventure and season. Its now just a long and fiddly process, rather than a very long and very fiddly process. Cant quite get get values for Spirit Combat Damage though.
  6. And now I have "Its Raining Men" stuck in my head. Thanks a lot.
  7. That, Comarade, is a bourgeois indulgence that serves only to distract the proletariat from the truth; agrarian rent capitalism is baked into the RQG rules. "Nobles live by the work of others." And yet not a word in the mainstream media... You dont need an Orlanthi to know which way the wind blows. (Apologies to Jose Maria Sison and Bob Dylan)
  8. This is the question that shouldn't be asked ... The idea of forbidden knowledge is more of a Call of Cthulhu thing. On the Runequest forum you can ask anything you like, but be prepared for "It'll be out when its ready", or "YGMV", or "MGF".
  9. I was thinking the same thing about the missing check box for Mago's Customs (Heortling) skill.
  10. How is Sacred Time viewed in terms of being a season, in the context of experience rolls? Not the usual adventuring- and profession-derived checks. I mean checks based on the fact that a character makes skill rolls during Sacred Time, such as Worship and their occupation skill to determine yearly income. Would a succesful roll in these prompt a box-ticking experience roll? If so, would that take place at during Sacred Time, or would they carry over to Sea Season.
  11. Stygian Fox has a 7e license and has several modern-day offerings. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/2834/Stygian-Fox/subcategory/5060_32334/Call-of-Cthulhu-Modern-Era "The Things We Leave Behind" can be run as a campaign. "Fear's Sharp Little Needles" is worth a look too.
  12. I saw the guy at the counter at Milsims wearing a Runequest T shirt, and when I quized him about it he said he he bought it himself online. He was obviously motivated. Maybe they're still finding their feet after lockdown and just havent got roumd to updating everything on the website. I do miss the mail out catalogue they used to have.
  13. I'm in Melbourne. Ive bought quite a few items from the Chaosium website, getting the pdfs straight away and having the hard copies mailed. The warehouse is in Sydney I think (possibly Brisbane). The books always arrive with an impressive amount of packaging and within a few days. No complaints there. Milsims seems to be best bet for in-store RQ purchases locally. Havent been there since 2019 for obvious reasons, but they allways have had everything released in stock, including the quickstart, when I go. I believe Michael O'Brien "MOB" is local. Not the Liberal leader who looks like an aged Matthew Newton. The other one.
  14. Yes, that was the one. https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/9940-books-and-scrolls/?tab=comments#comment-147426 Accroding to Jeff, its from RQC, not the Starter Set. Still, it was nice to see today we got a glimpse of the Stater Set contents placed over a map of Jonstown.
  15. One reason our skald pc was so keen on improving the read/write skill was a post by (I think) Jeff talking about lore books at Jonstown that when successfully read would confer a % improvement to certain lore skills. I think this was to do with the Starter Set. A new but offical RAW method of adding to lore is most welcome, but a pc needs to be able to make a read check to do so.
