    I used to run a weekly open table OD&D game. I love Glorantha and am hoping to run either RQ or HQ soon depending on my players' preferences. One of these days I'll run Stormbringer.

    I am a player in my friend Scott's Two-Headed Serpent CoC game, and I am running a 5e D&D Tomb of Annihilation campaign. Soon to be a player in another D&D session. Trying to find the time to get a Glorantha game going as it's my favorite setting.

  1. Bottom of the PDF has Documenth in place of Document.
  2. I bought the book on the strength of the recommendations and mentions I had seen of it over the years as a good source for Lunar material. Unfortunately I did not check the forums first before buying it on DTRPG or I would have come across ALM's review. "If fun or games are not your thing" reads like a bit of a jerk thing to say. I mostly run lighthearted games with lots of humor; actually, the majority of my players are former members of a sketch comedy group. I just wasn't expecting it in this based on the contexts in which I had seen it mentioned. I've also said that my first impression
  3. Right. Jeff Richard citing it as one of the best sources on the Lunar Empire along with the Guide to Glorantha and the Glorantha Sourcebook led me to think it would resemble the latter two works in tone and content. I think this is a case where familiarity with the original means you know exactly what you're getting into, but if you only got into Glorantha since 2012 or so, your expectations might be frustrated.
  4. The description on DTRPG mentions its origins but bills it as a useful guidebook for the Lunar setting, not necessarily as a tongue-in-cheek 90s artifact. There are a lot of funny games out there I could run that don't require extensive player buy-in for the setting unlike RuneQuest Glorantha. YGWV, but if I have to make it Vary by a lot, I'm probably better off not buying a book and just doing the work myself. Again, I haven't finished reading it, so maybe more is useful than I'm getting initially, but if this Jonstown Compendium publication & its portrayal is all we're seeing fo
  5. That's fine but I don't get the impression that we're going to see a serious Lunar sourcebook. Unless Jeff or someone can correct me?
  6. Initial impressions leaving me disappointed. Not sure why the Lunar Empire gets such a jokey presentation when Sartar gets treated so seriously in the official material, especially given Jeff Richard says this is 95% official. But first impressions can be wrong, so hoping my opinion shifts as I read it.
  7. Is this still active? The link is expired.
  8. I am gutted by this news. My condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. Just awful.
  9. Given it says "the GM's book will also feature," the "also" implies it's the same book. It's called a pack, I imagine, because it includes a GM's screen.
  10. My local game store stocked the Coming Storm for some reason, which my wife impulse bought for me because of Glorantha and the cover art. I only play with friends and do not go to the local store. It seems geared more towards Pathfinder and Warhammer, and I'm not into either.
  11. I would be down to play a Lunar! I've only used Roll20 so I can't compare.
  12. I mean, I am also new to RQ. I'm 31, so I am too young to have been a RQ3 grognard (to bring it back to the thread topic a bit!). I was interested in older forms of D&D (I used to run an open table D&D session using the original 1974 rules--by the way, the Jack O'Bear is based on the original pumpkin-headed bugbear illustration from Supplement I: Greyhawk!), and I ran across a discussion about RuneQuest on one of the old school D&D forums. Classic had come out, so I bought that and got very into it but held off on running it because I knew the new edition was coming out. I also che
