  • RPG Biography
    The first game I played was Gamma World in 1978 followed shortly by D&D. In 1979 a friend of mine showed up with a copy of RuneQuest and the rest, as they, is history. While I played many other games during the intervening decades I always returned to RuneQuest, Call of Cthulhu and the Basic Roleplaying System.

  1. Yes, it's still being worked on but it's already usable! https://basicroleplaying.net/adversaries/ All creatures from the Bestiary have been added except for unique monsters and spirits which I'm still thinking about how to handle. And NPCs which require a bit more depth. I'm currently working on both of NPCs and Spirits. I've created a couple of more output formats which should be out in the next release. I'm also adding a feature to allow you to save the existing data and re-apply it with a different format as well as download a plain text version. Currently you can use print and Save as PDF to export.
  2. What, you mean like Avalon Hill or Mongoose?
  3. I was looking at these back before Gen Con and noticed the contents. Was happy to see.
  4. I personally prefer this. I was actually disappointed that the final rules didn't do it this way as I was talking this up as a selling point to folks. To make it easier to get started I told the players that picking spells was just to have something to focus on using but that they could use any of their cult rune spells along with common rune spells. By the third session everyone had a chance to look at their cults in a bit more detail and pick spells they liked. I also created summary sheets similar to what was in the Quickstart for all the rune spells so they could quickly scan for them or copy just their cult spells into a concise list. I see where you're going with this Joerg and it certainly has some RP advantages for the players but in the current rules incarnation the characters don't sacrifice to gain rune spells do they? They sacrifice power to gain rune point that can be used to cast common and cult rune spells.

    Travelling Shelter

    That sounds like the sort of ideas I was looking for. Thanks, I'll check out Vae Victus (if I can find it).

    Travelling Shelter

    What about an exiled clan or a large group of folks travelling for religious reason? I'm thinking 300, 500, 700 people here. What would the default shelter be? What if they needed to travel as far as Pavis or Balazar?

    Travelling Shelter

    Ha! I'm sure the innkeepers love it when the army comes to town or some religious sect passes by. 😉

    Travelling Shelter

    My thoughts about Praxians is that they use a variety of temporary shelters ranging from big tents down to something like tipis and yurts possibly depending on the tribe. Aside from large fighting groups presumably clans move about occasionally, people may go to religious, tribal, and national events (declaring someone the Prince of Sartar for example). I would also guess that during Lunar occupation the may well have been large groups of exiles moving about and/or specifically to certain places. I could see Sartarites using everything from a lean-to/tarps to large tents depending on the situation and again this might vary from tribe to tribe.
  9. What sorts of shelter are used when travelling in large groups in Sartar? What about Prax and Lunar Empire? I feel like most of the time we just assume tents but are there particular types that are prevalent in different regions?
  10. Is that full shamans or also assistant shamans as most players start out?
  11. Can this include character sheets that do autocalulations? I'm not sure if that counts as software or not, I mean I'd say not since you need to have Acrobat (or functional equivalent) for it to work. Also what about maps? I'd guess those could be considered handouts?

  13. Oh, I thought you might mean he was a collector of victories. Collector of Nikes? No one really know, but probably not. Collector or RuneQuest and Gloranthania? Definitely not, but possibly the most prolific.
