  2. With the exception of my friend John running 7th Sea, I have no idea what other tables were running. My mind was elsewhere..... I had a good day, the adventure was simple enough as an introduction and distinct enough to give a feeling of the Gloranthan difference.
  3. Fun was had- only one PC death at the very end. Another player had a critical hit, but against an area of the enemy that was covered by another PC. Oh how we all laughed...
  4. My table is not fully booked up, so you're welcome. And there's another table running.
  5. Venue has been confirmed as the Angel Hotel- end of Westgate Street in the centre of Cardiff. Officially the event begins at 11am, expect my game to start closer to 11:30. See some of you there.
  6. Next Saturday- 17th June, Tony Parry and I will be running two tables of the Runequest quickstart, hosted by Cardiff's FLGS Rules of Play. So we'll be able to accommodate up to 10 players. Details on time and venue will follow, as it won't be held at the store itself- there's a card event going on which brings in "real money". So the Runequest loving owner is looking for a suitable venue to hire. Once we have that, I'll let you know the arrangements. I know we have a fair few people who'd love to try to new edition out in South Wales, hopefully we'll see you on the day. Andrew
  7. There are some slight spoilers, but there's nothing I can't alter when I run the session again- remember it's not the quickstart adventure. Much of what Chris focussed on was things I used to to expand the scenario.
  8. Playtest report from the Runequest Roleplaying in Glorantha session at UK Expo: https://armchairadventurerblog.com/2017/06/05/1-d-6-runequest-glorantha-play-test/ Eternal Con notes: http://2ndage.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/back-from-bacharach.html?m=1
  9. Lhankor Mhy have a wider role than an equivalent to CoC's librarian or even Indiana Jones. They can be librarians or historians or archelogists or war poets/ artists or tactical advisors for war or spies or documentarians in world of limited literacy or mystical oracles - see the HQ feat for the cult (very Lightbringerish). You can also see them as the Law and law maker or the squalid thief. They could be obsessed with dragonewts and the EWF or with the undead (and end up as an necromancer?). They're closer to Timbuktu 's libraries than your local libraries... Oh, how I long to play a Wild Sage again.....
  10. Folks will wish to note that the Simon Phipp is running two sessions of Robyn Hode at UK Expo: Friday afternoon: The Morris Miners http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=RPG3143 Saturday afternoon: Going A-Rescuing http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=RPG3144 There's spaces available, so if you're in the area and free in those slots, come and game.
  11. Cult of Chaos members will get access to the PDF a week beforehand. I'm sure the precise hows and whens will be circulated in due course.
  12. I've offered to run the quickstart at my local FLGS Rules of Play in Cardiff- I'm awaiting their response.
  13. And the Runequest game is now sold out. Thanks all. Work continues on the scenario itself.
  14. Good news folks! There are now three Heroquest Glorantha games being offered at UK Expo- 2 of which have places to spare on Saturday afternoon. UK Expo is the UK's largest gaming event and is held at the Birmingham NEC/ NEC Hilton on 2-4 June. The sessions with spare spaces are: Highwall Inn- GM Ian Cooper A Dragon Pass scenario- GM Mark Adri-Soejoko Booking details at: http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/bookevents.php?category=rpg See you there?
  15. Quick reminder- there's still two tickets left for "Into the Upland Marsh", a playtest of the new edition of Runequest. Friday 2nd June, 8pm til late, UK Expo, Birmingham http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/bookevents.php?category=rpg I look forward to seeing you there. Andrew
