  • 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.

    GM Screen Pack coming in PDF on September 14

    Not trampled, supporting the rest. I'm guessing Gata, Primal Earth. (Appropriate that the GM screen is the Gods Wall, btw.)

    A Dry Run in Prax

    Claude Rains as the local Lunar watch commander, and Bogey as...hmm..Gimpy?

    About slavery

    Repair is the king. Farmers, craftsmen, housekeepers, pretty much everyone has uses for it. Heal would be second as it's generally useful but not needed as often. Others would tend to be more occupation-specific. Hunters, for instance, could use Mobility, Farsee, the missile spells, maybe Slow, etc. (And in Prax, of course, there's the Peaceful Cut, though that's more a skill than a spell.)

    Everyone Having Rune Magic

    In my game the characters usually had Detects focused or occasionally known by spirits, which circumvents free INT.

    GM Screen Pack coming in PDF on September 14

    I tend to agree. What little you can see of the hilt (the crossbar and the pommel) appears to be the same material as the blade, suggesting it's all of a piece.

    RQG print copy?

    Again, doubtful. The books are only a tiny portion of what is on even that particular ship, and foot-dragging would affect every company for which products it carries are routed. Also, tariffs are only on raw materials so far. More likely it can be ascribed to the usual delays in the system.
  7. Yeah, if I lived in Australia I'd be there in a heartbeat.

    Parry/Dodge Declaration

    I seem to recall Jeff answering this specifically (or maybe it was Jason), but not where, that declaration comes before any rolls. Makes sense, too.

    Charisma

    Excellent job of painting those.

    Chalanan Heroquest

    My thought in reading it was that it was very much in the vein of Amerind myth-tales (not a bad thing at all, as many Praxian HQ's tend to play out similarly). However, since CA is a Lightbringer, you might bring some more Heortling/Orlanthi concepts into it. Say, for instance, that one of the combatants of either side (or both sides) is killed before she gets there and can heal them, and there's the complication of weregeld added to the peace negotiations. Or perhaps there's some kind of tie-in with Hsunchen, with ancestors of the Telmori and/or Rathori involved. Maybe Eurmal shows up to throw a wrench into things.

    White Bear and Red Moon

    If you're interested, here's a variant from long ago that I wrote up and posted here that introduces the Aldryami as an Allied race: https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/5304-dragon-pass-revisited/?tab=comments#comment-77932
