    OpenQuest what would you change?

    OQ 3 would be a great addition to the stable. I’d like to see something that shows the other clever ways the system can be used. I’ve run OQ for god only knows how many genres, used the battle magic to represent feats, psychic talents, natural abilities and computer programs. It’s always been a clean and very adaptable system, which is quick to learn. I think that’s it’s strength over all the other BRP games.

    Do you use figures in RQ Poll

    The climactic battle at the end of our epic 10 player RQ scenario. Note the players running away. Below are some of my minis, including my conversions.

    Ducking the issue

    My new players, all young, hip and never having encountered Glorantha before gladly lapped up Glorantha, Ducks and Baboons after playing one session of RuneQuest. They’re no different to my Gnome Arcane Trickster, our Tiefling Monster-Hunter, our Goliath Barbarian, Half-Orc Paladin or all matter of other gaming weirdness. Hell I once was involved in a game where Dan Barker played Bruce Campbell’s Chin!

    My map of Volsaxiland

    Hi guys, if you’re looking for the Bray Map of Heortland, just say hi. I think I can get hind of the map. I may still have the original art files. I have got several of the original maps and copies of them in my studio. We did Heortland, Imther, Pavis County, Tarsh, Dagori Inkarth, The Wastes, Esrolia, Mirins Cross and Pamaltela in total. Oh and of course the Lunar Empire. I still have a few of these available. Ask me if you’re interested. Simon Bray

    Tribal Edit Thread for Glorantha Sourcebook

    Has anyone else tried to print off the pdf? I have and have had repeated issues, several pages throughout the text halt the printing process or cause printer corruptions. I’ve checked my printer (Ricoh Aticio MP c2050) with other PDFs over similar complexity and size with no problems. I’ve so far been unable to print beyond page 140. Pages 8, 28, 44 and 141 have caused the problems with the last one causing a massive print error. I struggle to read on computers and iPads and hate their use at the gaming table, plus you can’t show off a pdf to your Mum as well as you can a book. please can anyone help?

    RULES CLARIFICATION

    The shamanism rules were written to try and convey the way characters in RuneQuest 1&2 were able to capture spirits, while at the time giving you the ability to have shamans operate as a more powerful entity. The Shaman gains more powerful abilities to capture spirits, you can try binding a spirit as a non-shaman but good luck to you! The shamaism rules were written at quite short notice there are things I would have done a little better, however they remain relatively robust and maintain the feel of older BRP games. I expanded shamanism for my OQ Glorantha campaign, allowing fir more complex shamanism such as Hsunchen Animal Totem shamanism, Praxian Shamanism and Troll Magics. They were fun fast and playable...I may remove the Glorantha from them and post them here (then again I might just put them up as they stand).

    Crucible of the Dragons.

    lol I've actually run Crucible of Dragons using D&D5e it works, all the tropes are there Knights of Theron (Fighters / Paladins), Demonologists (Warlocks), Azura Cultists (Monks), Cache Collectors (Barbarians / Thieves), Followers of the gods (Clerics)...need I go on? Pherae is an island you can stick anywhere...

    Crucible of the Dragons.

    Would people be interested if I uploaded some of the pregens that were written for this setting? I could upload them to this site.

    Crucible of the Dragons.

    Hi, I also wrote and ran a freeform based in Pherae, the game greatly expanded the setting, and the portrayal of the Dragon Queen by the tiny and beautiful Franziska, as she gaily skipped through the lives of the other characters was a wonder to behold. It was hilarious when they suddenly realised that she could change into a colossal dragon. There was a part where she got wind that several players were plotting against her, so she got three loyal servants to lift her so she could "fly" around them as they cowered beneath a table, then she lifted the roof (aka the GMs moved the table) so that she could interrogate them herself. They soon towed the line and became upstanding citizens.

    Crucible of the Dragons.

    We have an elf character in daughter's game, she is from far off lands and has been called to the island by "The Cries of Ora" and is trying to locate the source of pain. As the campaign rolled on other Elves have also come to the island and yet more have begun to awake in the forests. My elves are heavily nature orientated creatures. Ducks could be another kind of beast man that dwells in the marshes or civilised visitors from further shores. I designed an entire world beyond Pherae but it may never see the light for OQ...

    Of course if your desert has Sand Yachts and your sailing campaign has dolphin riders....
