    I'm not in any FTF games, one of our longstanding players died a while ago, and we haven't felt like RPGing in their absence, though we meet for other things. I'm in an online RQ2 game and a RGQ one.

  1. Giant tortoise? No, no. Something faster, a Hyena. Its not quite a Praxian beast like the Baboons not quite a Praxian person (In that neither are in Waha's covenant, but both live in Prax and the Wastes
  2. There's an inset on P29 of the Bestiary about Baboon adventurers. For the Praxian Background skills, personally, I would substitute Animal Lore for Ride (Herdbeast) and Track for Herd. I can't really see a baboon gaining loyalty to some place called Sartar because his grandad got himself killed in some foreign war, Honour's fair enough and hating bad people.

    The last sentence "This spell may only be cast on wildday, and can only be cast on an Initiate or Rune Master of the god" appears in the RQG book but not in the RQG Bestiary (Telmor) or the RBoM

    Switch Places is mentioned under Donandar in the Runequest Classics - Cult Compendium (if I ever knew, I'd forgotten). There it says - So maybe it doesn't matter if other people can or can't see the illusory sight, and the caster can switch places with an illusory sight produced by Hallucinate (giving 12 points worth of illusions perceptible only by the caster)

    Switch Places looks cool at first sight, but relies on having produced an Illusory Sight of the caster. Illusory Sight covers a volume of SIZ 3, so a typical adventurer of SIZ 12 would need to know Illusory Sight 4 before they could Switch Places. I suppose one could reduce the SIZ required by placing the illusory sight behind an obstruction of some sort? Or would that be cheating? Since illusion magic is essentially cheating to begin with, manipulating to the utmost it is probably OK.
  7. On my mac the font runes are wrong when viewed in Preview, iBooks, Chrome and Safari They are right when viewed in Adobe Elements (which is not an easy way to read a book)
  8. I begin to understand why Jeff was finding the topic boring, (though as a paid up Chalana Arroy, I'm certain that Argrath is first amongst Assholes).
  9. I guess the rune font used in the PDF is not the rune font intended in the drafts, and the mapping of rune characters is different. Fire/sky appears as Moon, and Chaos appears as Fate throughout as well

  11. Where Glorious Reascent of Yelm mentions the Good Sister and Bad Sister (Injerina and Bosjerina) it says something like 'we all know the tales about them' is anybody familiar with a particular terrestrial or gloranthan folklore tradition that this might refer to?
  12. Yeah OK, I guess I'm substantially wrong above. It's certainly a passion, and it's something personal in that you carry it with you, I don't think characters generate their own concepts of honour from first principles though. They buy into a code that is largely predetermined by their warrior culture. If one was brought up to believe that it's OK to work to death enemies who surrendered, one can do it without one's honour suffering. If one was brought up to respect a code governing parole, ransom and surrender then one can't. There's probably a bit of room for an individual to say "I accept t
  13. I would say it's definitely in the personal sense. Social honor would fall more along the lines of a specific type of reputation imo. I'd say the opposite (in the grand tradition of YGWV) a character's Honour rating to my mind measures their coupling into the society's honour culture. Things that people get very uptight about royalty, or footballers doing, they don't turn a hair about musicians and actors doing, some are expected to observe honour restrictions others are not.
  14. It is just Mob of Australia. Is this the time to confess I've been spelling it Mo Bastura for twenty five years?
