  1. Thanks both, I’m going through the Esrolia: The Land of Ten Thousand Goddesses now.
  2. Hi Tribe, Any suggestions for a sacred time heroquest suitable for an Esrolian House? Something designed to strengthen the House would be the best, where protectors and husbands, such as Babeester Gor and Orlanth, either defend Ernalda/Esrola or quest for one of the goddesses. It could be linked to an item the House already has. I’m getting my thinking cap of Lhankor Mhy on too! Cheers, Jim
  3. My google foo shows the Kheldon http://glorantha.temppeli.org/digest/gd6/1999.06/5355.html. That’ll do! Thanks again.
  4. Does anyone know which Sartarite clan Orlaront was born to? Thanks, Jim
  5. Thanks Joerg, interesting thoughts
  6. I thought I had seen a reference somewhere to Mostal imprisoning a Dragon. Did I make this up in my illuminated mind or can anyone point me to the source of this? (To any of my players reading this thread - there are now strange machines made of iron and cogs despatched from Dwarf Run and heading to you now) I had originally posted this in the Runequest forum, as was pointed out I should have used this one. In my world there was a group of dwarves that attempted to emulate Mostal’s actions by imprisoning a Dream Dragon, using arcane machines and sorcery to draw off the energy of the true Dragon.
  7. Good point, i’ll Move this to the correct forum.

  9. I’m seeking clarification that my Search (Forum) 5% skill has not found so far... Regarding a successful parry on P.198 of RQG it states “... or referring to the Hield Hit Location table (page 219). In most cases, a hit to a shield damages the arm wielding it” while P..218 in Notes on Shield Use it is stated “Any damage taken by the shield above what the shield can absorb in one blow is inflicted on the hit location originally rolled in the attack”. Unless I’m missing some context or an example I’ve not found so far, I’m not sure which to apply regarding melee. I could probably argue is both ways depending on the phase of the moon or amount of ale consumed, but what I’m after is any official clarification so far rather than starting a long discussion thread on which option is more “real”.
  10. Ooops. They track down puddings as well as hyena skin!
  11. Indeed! I guess the mitigation is: + Help from a Dessert Tracker + Protection money + Enough guards from one of the big 5 tribes, perhaps even changing through the journey + Gifting + Trading with the locals for goods they cannot get in the wastes Having such a large caravan means smaller groups of tribal raiders might avoid you, or there are irritating small raids at night that the GM can abstract in some way to avoid tedium. There could be a few big encounters that might be standoffs or outright battles, I suspect these are the scenes that would involve the PCs.
  12. On one of the Facebook groups related to Runequest someone asked for a calendar. I'm sure this wheel has been re-invented many times, but I commented I could put one here, hence the post. The attached Excel workbook uses the rune font (http://www.glorantha.com/docs/glorantha-core-rune-font/), there is also a sheet where I started adding some holy days. Hope that helps someone. Calendar.xlsx
  13. No doubt with the The Frog Chorus method of worship as practised by their Gorrakiki worshipping friends, The Beetles. Sorry could not resist. Thanks again, Jim
  14. I didn't see the name Frog Island in the Atlas and Guide. Then I looked hard again at the diagram you kindly put together and it looked like you added this on (possible from the Companion?). There is a Frog Island in London, I can see a messy industrial, polluting Zistor reclamation yard. Junk shipped over from places like the Clanking Ruins and other sites in God Forgot for reclamation, perhaps building some machines. Conflict with the local newtlings, possibly Triolini and the plot of the latest Spiderman film have just merged in my mind. Controlled by a Red Earth alliance minor house that has gone too far to the dark side. And I'm off...
