  • RPG Biography
    I started in 1985 with red box D&D, then AD&D1 and since 1989 BRP in its many forms who has become my preferred system. Among the various BRP games I have a soft spot for Stormbringer (any and all editions) with which I run incredibly fun campaigns in the 1990s and early 2000s.
  • Current games
    BRP homebrewed Lankhmar-ish setting (with bits of the Classic Fantasy mono)
  • Location
    Southern Switzerland

    In real life I am an academic. A linguist by training. I am married with 3 children.

  1. So, the Esrolian is going to be a male noble, a discreet guy used to play the role of trusted back-up of the matriarchs (this is how the player describes him) I still have to talk to the fourth guy... (As you can see I'm not really in a hurry, given that I have several games going on in parallel righ now... ðŸĪŠ)
  2. I've noticed that RQ:G rules become much clearer when I actually read them. ðŸĪĢ Rather than half-reading them, half-remembering a mix of rules from RQ2, RQ3 and the BGB. Jokes aside. There are a few passages that could be clearer but nothing dramatic. Actually, I think this issue has been blown way out of proportion, especially on another well known rpg forum on the net, where some users have created a sort of mythology around that. I like compact expositions of the rules and I look forward to the forthcoming Starter Set for having my go-to booklet to use at the table for reference on
  3. Thanks Diana! That's helpful. And yes, the scenario does contain a lot of advice. The party will comprise 4 newly generated characters. They include: A Humakti Duck (I think this PC must know Deveval or even be a relative...) A Lankhor Mhy Sage from Sartar (so I guess he will be interested in investigating the nature and history of the ghostly phenomenon) An Esrolian of still undecided gender and profession - possibly a merchantess or Earth priestess A fourth character yet to decide...
  4. Actually, we did a session 0 of character generation. Great fun, but we have not started the scenario yet. So, the request for advice is still valid.
  5. What the title says. My players stay away from thread, please. I'm running it as a (kinda) one shot on roll20.
  6. Or you can make a baboon Yelmalio templar and use the character history in Sandheart. 🙈🙉🙊ðŸĩ
  7. Longer report to follow. The player characters snatched victory from the dragon-jaws of defeat. For now I will only say it involved Saran Sheik rolling a 01 in his Arioch pact/elan, calling the god, and Arioch himself appearing to converse with the characters. The outcome of the conversation was decisive... (In the attached picture chaotic melee in the Arioch temple a few minutes before)
  8. This. Trollpak is gold. Sadly 5e authors seem saddled with lots of constraints.
  9. Our latest Stormbringer session was a HUGE lot of fun. Lots of talking with crazy Melniboneans, with Marlissa disguised as Melnibonean thanks to the Dharzi scarab contraption. We are close to the BIG SHOWDOWN! Some VTT pictures below. AS ALWAYS SPOILER ALERT! Yes, there was this Melnibonean gal asleep within the summoning pentacle! While her pal was illuminating a grimoire. Beware of the stone slab with the dragon fossile skeleton! Saran Sheik, the Black Abbot, is basking in the rosy light of the Hearth of Arioch, just a second before the final denouement is set
  10. Melnibonean Guardian Drake. Conversion from Nephilim (Gamemaster's Companion). The spirit of an ancient dragon infused into an elemental body and bound to a place. This one is based on an earth elemental, bound into a Melnibonean stone tower. STR 3d6+6 (Damage bonus based on STRx2) SIZ Everywhere in the binding place, coils sift through stone and normally appear immaterial. CON 3d6+6 (HP = CON) DEX 2d6+6 POW 4D6+18 - Attack: Bite 50% 1d6+db (drake is physical for the whole round) - Coil: 40% db (an auto constriction damage each round, if remains phy
  11. What do we know about the planned Starter Set? I am really looking forward to it. The CoC starter set was great and I have high expectations for the RQ box. And I love boxed sets... And the Italian edition of RQ is on hold until the starter set is available (so I've been told). Will it contain new adventures or updated classic scenarios? Will it contain (simplified?) character generation rules or just premade characters? Will it feature a mini-setting / homebase? Apple Lane? Somewhere else?
  12. In Elric! they're on page 109 "Non-humans". Revised (nerfed) rules for Melnibonean characters can be also found in Stormbringer 5th edition (It's one of the very few differences between Elric! and Stormbringer 5th).
  13. And waitaminute... what's the "The Red Book of Magic"?
  14. Yes, that was the idea. There were convenient piles of wood around that could be used to reinforce the gate. But it went down in a single round instead...
