  • RPG Biography
    Heh...basically, if it was an RPG in print before 1984, I played it...D&D and AD&D to begin, RQ2, the weird TSR variant RPG's, every BRP game, Champions, V&V, T&T, Amber (later), MMO's of many descriptions from EQ on, boardgames (Dragon Pass is still and always my favorite), puter games, anything and everything. I've actually been published in the Dragon (in '81, ooh ahh).
  • Current games
    Boardgames and ESO occasionally, would like to get some Glorantha action going, preferably RQ2 or the new one once it's available.

    Gods help me, I've been a gamer geek for decades...

    Now get your hands off my counters! :)

  1. Deities of Beer and Wine

    Which I find silly, as ridiculous as the concept of a bunch of submicroscopic runes as elementary particles. There is, of course, RW precedent; many (if not all) cultures used myth to explain the unknown. Doesn't mean they were right.
  2. You just threw her in to get my attention.
  3. Deities of Beer and Wine

    Odd, that. Personally I bristle at the idea that alll cause-and-effect processes must be magic-based, that there's no such thing as nature except as it's related to some god(dess).
  4. whip as melee weapon

    And then, of course, there's the Indiana Jones solution. Just make sure your holster is filled...
  5. New licensing partner for RuneQuest Miniatures

    Interesting...they even have the menhir.
  6. Gloranthan themed birthday party.

    Perhaps a Waertagi boarding action or Lunar vs. Sartarite or Pavic attack? It'd be a bit easier for the kids new to it to get into, although it'd probably involve a bit more preparation. (Cute kids, btw. I like your son trying to look hard. )
  7. Masters of Luck & Death Wargame

    Love it! I'm sure I recognize some of those from the AH Dragon Pass game...the Shadowland troll is the one that immediately jumps out at me.
  8. Tripolis should be singular, if it follows the Greek. (It's a single unit comprised of three cities/polities.)
  9. Prince of Sartar. Comic

    I meant absolutely new births, not rebirths. First-time, crested dragonewts. And who knows what goes on inside the protected environs of the Dragon's Eye?
  10. Prince of Sartar. Comic

    I don't buy a couple of things that that implies: first, that there aren't or have never been any new births in the Dragon's Eye, and second, that every Dragonewt who falls short of spiritual balance is a coward, cheat, or thief. Eh, the first is possible, I guess...it's been a while since there were any true dragons around (roughly 500 years), so far as outsiders know, aside from a couple of devourings.
  11. Prince of Sartar. Comic

    That doesn't really get at their motivation, though. Maybe the Giants stole some draconic magick? (Unlikely to apply to Gods Age myth, but vaguely possible.)
  12. Prince of Sartar. Comic

    Perhaps some form of magical 'tech' that the humans somehow don't know about and that the Dragonewts want to keep out of their hands, or simply to learn it themselves? Or even to protect the Giant baby? I can't think of any particular enmity between the Dragonewts and Giants, or friendship with the Lunars. That doesn't really address why they'd be involved in unconnected actions, either, unless one extrapolates that it was all eventually oriented toward assaulting the Cradle.
  13. New RuneQuest Combat rule question and suggestion

    I just had one of those slap-your-forehead realizations re: the failed attack vs. successful parry thing. So obvious once you think of it. It'd be a strong limiting factor against splitting attacks, especially when fighting more experienced opponents. (After some thought on the matter, usually in the shower when my mind wanders, I think I'd HR that particular rule to a max of 4 points damage to the weapon. One point really isn't enough; there'd end up being very little breakage at all. And possible full damage is excessive to my mind.)
  14. Masters of Luck & Death Wargame

    I wish I'd've seen the Convulsion event. I'll bet it was interesting and occasionally inventive.
  15. Runic associations

    The [Unknown] looks like Moon to me.
