  1. If you’re in Birmingham on Friday 1st June in the evening, feel free to come along to a Runequest session that I’m GM’ing. I’m adapting a scenario from the Eleven Lights Heroquest book, written by Ian Cooper for Runequest. Caught between the Lunar Empire and the Telmori (werewolves), you must fight for your Clan's survival in the Hero Wars. Adapting an adventure from Ian Cooper's Heroquest campaign, this Runequest adventure is suitable for old hands and newcomers alike to both Runequest and the world of Glorantha. 5 players max http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=RPG3953 Andrew
  2. Added to the UK Games Expo this very evening, Heroquest line editor Ian Cooper is running a new scenario set in Pamaltela- “The Noose” Bodies have been turning up strangled across Garguna, the largest city in Pamaltela. Notes scribbled on the walls, using the hieroglyphics of the sacred Garangrapha, by one or many murderers calling themselves ’The Noose' points to some apocalyptic cult stalking the streets. Whilst it was just the kadaam that were dying, few cared, but now a masarin has died and the city is on the edge. Everyone blames the Vadeli, and some have been beaten to death by angry mobsMasarin Abena has been tasked with stopping the murders by the jann of Garguna himself. As her household bodyguard, it falls to you to carry out her will: find and stop ‘The Noose’ before its too late!Now it is a race against time, find and stop the killers, before the city topples into violence. For 5 players max. http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=RPG3950 Andrew
  3. I will be running "Temple Heist" at the UK's biggest gaming convention UK Games Expo in Birmingham on Saturday 2 June in the afternoon. Description: You have been hired by a member of the Tarsh Exiles to rob the new Lunar Temple the night before before it opens. What could possibly go wrong?Newcomers to Glorantha or Heroquest (or both) are very welcome.System: Heroquest GloranthaFor 4 players max Book online at: http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=RPG3908 Heroquest line editor Ian Cooper is also running a Heroquest session, "the Night Watch" Once the Jonstown Night Watch was a noble institution--the good burghers of the town mustering to do their military service; the Night Watch protected their kith and kin against fire, theft, brigandry, and mayhem. To be called 'constable' was an honor, and watchmen took their office seriously.No longer.Since the Empire came, the Watch does little more than put on parades. The disinterested burghers of the town mostly pay a proxy to take their place; the proxies, a notorious bunch of drunks, fornicators and gamblers use their constabulary powers to shake down the local merchants, that is when they are not carousing the taverns.You are members of the Night Watch, the gods forbid your city ever actually needs you... http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=RPG3793 There is one space available for that game More Gloranthan games are possible for UK Games Expo but have not been announced yet.

  4. Kickstarter backer Fucklebutte Q Shitlord 's name is misspelt.
  5. Next Saturday, I'm looking to run a "work in progress" scenario for Heroquest at Spaghetti Conjunction, a small friendly convention held in Geek Retreat, Birmingham (details on G+, Facebook communities or at https://spaghetticonjunction.wordpress.com/2018/01/02/spaghetti-conjunction-2a/ ) Title: Temple Heist Description: You have been hired by a member of the Tarsh Exiles to rob the new Lunar Temple the night before before it opens. What could possibly go wrong? Newcomers to Glorantha or Heroquest (or both) are very welcome. System: Heroquest Glorantha For 4 players max Afternoon session
  6. Dragonrise Aftermath in Sartar

    Another source of ideas could be this Robin D Laws video from the Kraken- dream dragons get a mention...
  7. It’s a guess, so let’s not get too het up about timings until things are announced.
  8. 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,
  9. 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.
  10. 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

  12. Not a clue- it'll be run on Roll20 or Google Hangouts.
  13. 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.

  14. 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
  15. 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
