  1. It’s a guess, so let’s not get too het up about timings until things are announced.
  2. I don’t know when the second quickstart will be releases. Chaosium are talking about a Q2 release for the core RQ books in print. They would be looking for physical copies by the summer convention cycle. Possibly free RPG day? But that’s my speculation,
  3. I’ve been running a playtest version of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha at conventions since early summer, and if you liked playing the Quickstart, then its difficult to see how you won’t enjoy the released version of the game. A second quickstart will be produced to reflect feedback from the original quickstart with some rule changes. So even if you haven’t had a game under the full pre-release rules- and quite a few people have a copy and are running games, you have a good preview to assess the upcoming edition.
  4. Runequest at Dragonmeet 2017

    Just a heads up that I’ll be running an all duck Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha session at Dragonmeet on 2 December 3-7 pm. Dragonmeet isn’t allowing pre-booking of any RPG that isn’t called Pathfinder, so you’ll need to book on the day. More details at https://www.dragonmeet.co.uk/gaming.html It appears its the only Glorantha game at the con- anybody else interested in offering a morning or evening game? Andrew

  6. Not a clue- it'll be run on Roll20 or Google Hangouts.
  7. Aethercon- an online gaming convention has spaces available for a Runequest game- "the Dreaming Ruin" GM'ed by RQ line editor Jason Durall. 12 November 9AM EST to 2PM EST More details at: http://aethercon.com/ACEventMan/Tickets/index.asp More details of the convention and other events at: http://www.aethercon.com/news.asp I have no idea if this scenario will form part of the 2nd Runequest quickstart or not.

  8. Gianni Vacca has written up his Kraken experience, with contributions from others including me. Well worth a read with some news on upcoming Glorantha products. https://2ndage.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/the-kraken-2017-report.html?showComment=1509149725332#c5119860106138333359 Andrew
  9. RPGs are a bit of an afterthought, although the new home is better- So I understand, ironically I was in London for the day and couldn’t make it. Last year, everybody playing that I saw were adults, or at least older teenagers. I suspect the group were hungry and were not signed up to any social contract- like respecting the work put in by the GM or the other player. The GMs are mainly from the same Newport gaming group, so doing the con as an extended club night isn’t really the point. One sad thing, the Cardiff University Gaming Society had its first event of the year on the same day, rather than taking part in a wider gaming community. Students, eh? Finally, John the GM did a playtest of a Mythic Britain homebrew scenario last night- he will likely run the session at Spaghetti Conjunction. First melee combat- a fumble by the attacker vs a critical by the defender (100% v 01%). Joyous. Andrew
  10. I understand it was a bit of frustrating affair, after an hour 4 of the players decided to walk out on the other player & GM- both of whom I know. Shabby behaviour to a fine GM. If folks are going to Spaghetti Conjunction later this month in Birmingham, John will be running a homebrew Mythic Britain scenario, which I helped playtest this evening. Well worth your time. Andrew
  11. This coming Saturday- 30th November, the Newport Centre is hosting Dragondaze, a convention celebrating gaming, comics and other bits of geek culture for local charities. My friend John, a fine GM, is running the "Caves of Circind" Mythic Britain scenario. The convention runs from 10-5 and the session will run from 1 to 5 . So, if you're in the area, feel free to join the game. Andrew
  12. Lovely art. My one concern is that the movement rune armband could be misinterpreted for a debased Earth symbol.

  14. Free RPG Day at Rules of Play, Cardiff

    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.
  15. Free RPG Day at Rules of Play, Cardiff

    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...
