  1. Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    That would be great. But what I think the HQ version of Glorantha needs is a better char gen for total novices to the setting. As mentioned in my previous, something that helps pick those keywords and other abilities, with fun tables or choices. Coming cold to the setting and rules, it is a bit of a step to pick the words if you dont know. Probably not to hard if you have some Fate experience, but build it as if none. I dont really care where this could be done, it would be great if something like this could be done for the Red Cow campaign. I can just see my players scratching there heads, unsure what to do and that is not the sort of start you want. MYZ quickstart had a simple system. Atlantis had a lot more involved one, but the rolls indicated what sort of experience/skill to pick. I know HQ is using a totally different approach, but that is the point. I think the veterans need to look at the ease for noobs to get into the game.
  2. Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    MOB, my wish would be a pdf HQ version of the book or even printed. Done as an easy introduction to the setting and rules, but still with a mini campaign. Step by step char gen with some random rolled aspects like a life path that ties in with keywords and other aspects of char gen. Atlantis and Conan 2d20 have this and undoubtedly others. I recently ran the Mutant Year Zero intro game and that has a good char gen for a quickstart instead of just giving a finished charater sheet. Plenty of player and gm snippets to fill in the setting. Wishing...
  3. A Magical Economy

    Sort of related, I remember reading that MAR Barker had different versions of Tekumel, the game, the books and pure. Each supported that setting version, if that makes sense
  4. Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    Chiming in, that this is exactly the book I was going/hoping to cut my teeth into the rules and setting. Maybe this year.
  5. Sun County by Avalon Hill

    Are, links, thanks. And thanks to everyone who replied
  6. Sun County by Avalon Hill

    Hi, how canon is this product? I understand I can play my own version, but just interested. If I use info from it will I have a problem later. I am looking to use it as a possible soft opening for our first foray into Glorantha. Namely starting the pc as a member of Garhound and running the contest. Moving Rabbit Hat Farm to near Garhound and conected to that clan. Is Hazia a canon drug and the Krarsht cultist? Where do I find out more about it and them? I have not read all the book, so maybe more info is in it. Thanks
  7. Upcoming Glorantha publications

    Any news on the HQ Big Rubble book?
  8. Robin's Book?

    In Tradetalk 8, it mentions on page 3, that Robin was signed to right a book for the Hero Wars. Was this done and if so where can it be found? Allan
  9. Fets i prets: a HQ + FATE + FU hack

    Thanks for sharing. How hard would it be to translate more of the system, or is that most of it? Allan
  10. Using magic repeatedly

    But RQ is not better than Harn, which has the same pedigree in my opinion
  11. My only little quibble

    Thanks all, sorry I was out of contact camping in the bush next to a billabong and rolled it to a long weekend with Anzac Day.
  12. My only little quibble

    Hi My little problem with the rules, is having to look at the chart. It's easy to work out the individual success levels, but then having to cross reference on a chart for a further success level seems to spoil the immersion. I suppose you would get used to it, but could there be some simple saying, or easy way to remember. Allan

    Yep, that sounds good. I have about 1 month before the dry kicks in, so this year I am looking to go prep light. The HQ system is looking good. Quick question; I notice a slight difference between the HQ/G char generation and Sartar Kingdom book. Assuming the Sartar was for HQ2 not G, or is it a setting specific refinement from the main rules G rules?

    Thanks I was leaning to the Coming Storm setting but without volume 2 coming out in the next few weeks, I will probably go to the other. I was just looking for a more low key entry to the setting, so thought CS.
