    Greg Stafford Condolence Thread

    I only met Greg Stafford, and learned who he even was, two years ago at Gen Con 2016. He liked me and appreciated the work I was doing for Chaosium that weekend, and that felt very good. When I researched him it became clearer to me that he wasn't just the Glorantha Guy. He was someone whose influence on RPGs spread throughout its entire history. The more I learned, the clearer it became to me that I'd known him my entire gaming life. He treated me as an equal at Gen Con 2016 and 2017 and I'm sad I didn't get to say hi one last time in 2018. Knowing him even as briefly as I did, I still feel comfortable calling him friend. He was just that kind of person - magnetic and humble despite his astronomical metaphorical power. He was a good man, and opened my eyes to a lot of new things. I feel as though there will never be another one like him, and that's fine. He never seemed the kind who would want there to be another one "like" him. He never seemed, to me, like the kind who took his fame and influence too seriously, like somebody who'd want anything resembling a Grandfather Clause. He didn't seem to want to be the best or the original or anything other than someone who does new things so that others can do new things. Other game designers think they're rock stars. He knew better, and I loved him for it. We Are All Us.

    RQG: No NPCs???

    Well, yeah, HUMAN non-player characters, but I assume there aren't a whole ton of monsters who grew up in an Orlanthi cults, worshipping the Storm Bull, and having the same stats as a human. Thanks anyway!

    RQG: No NPCs???

    Alright, y'all. I have scanned this book up and down and come to a brutal conclusion: I don't think there are any NPCs, guidelines for making NPCs, or even the word "NPC" in the entire book. I Ctrl+F'd for "NPC", "Monster", "Lunar" and other NPC-adjacent phrases and found nothing. Is there really nothing for making opposition? If so, that seems like a rather vicious oversight. Am I missing something??

    RQG: No NPCs???

    Thank you for bringing that to my attention! That actually 100% addresses my concern (well, not disappointment that it's not IN the corebook, but inability to actually make my own creature and know general Gloranthan creatures). Thanks again!!

    RQG: No NPCs???

    Plus there's no monster stats. This game doesn't quite seem ready to run out of the box :s

  10. I am proud to present, after entirely too long (my fault!), the launch of my first officially licensed Call of Cthulhu product: Jasper St. Jones Got the Pretties Bones: A Shortcut of Supernaturalism. Want a scenario but don't have the time or energy for a full thirty-to-sixty page writeup? Need a standalone scenario, a jumping off point for a new campaign, or an adventure to fit into your current campaign? Just looking for inspiration? The Shortcuts of Supernaturalism have you covered! An entire scenario in less than 3,000 words, complete with stats, and all at an affordable price! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/229466/Shortcut-of-Supernaturalism-Jasper-St-Jones-Got-The-Prettiest-Bones
  11. Ahh-ooh? I guess it'd be for the better if the scenario was cut, I mean the main villain isn't that evil. He's just an excitable boy.

    New Glorantha Fan - Where to start?

    Hey all. I'm a long-time Call of Cthulhu fan, a slightly shorter-time BASIC fan, and a brand new Glorantha/RQ fan! I am like a little baby to you, and I defer to your wisdom. Where should I start to really grok Glorantha, as a setting, a franchise, and more? Where should I begin in my quest to grasp the intricacies and history of the world? Obviously the Glorantha corebook coming later this year will be a great starting point, but that's not out yet! So what should I read in the meanwhile? Thanks, TK Nyarlathotep

    Cosmic horror (really) adventures?

    Seconding the scenarios which you'll have to concert from The Final Revelation by Graham Walmsley, for Trail of Cthulhu. Doors to Darkness has at least one good cosmic horror scenario, and I believe the two scenarios in the GM screen booklet are more cosmic than pulp as well.

    How to Contribute Free Content?

    I'm not sure I'm familiar - what is the Chaosium fan-policy? I'd like to be able to release some CoC Stuff online and I AM a part of the Cult of Chaos, but I don't want to step on any toes by posting free material online.
