    Six Ages is out on iOS

    Well I had the impression that it was taking place during history, so after creation of Time and the Storm Age...but then I checked the "Dating the God Time" insert from GTG1 p125, and "the Ice covers Dara Happa" event is dated 109,201 YS, before the dawn, so you may well be right. The next entry says "The World is Destroyed" so...it bodes well

    Six Ages is out on iOS

    Loving it so far! But it's also a testament of my lack of knowledge of anything non-Orlanthi and non 3rd age! I am actually still trying to figure out when it is taking place ^^

    New RQ Design Note #18 - New Logo

    I would agree this is less critical nowadays, and in the grand scheme of things far less important than the content. But it's one component of the brand, amongst others, that will be used to communicate/promote the game. As we (I at least) are not yet aware of the other elements that will be used (launch event/video? cover and interior art? video series on the rules, the setting, actual plays...) that's the one we are commenting about

    New RQ Design Note #18 - New Logo

    I don't think the discussion around the logo is an old school/new school thing. The way I see it, and why I care, is because I hope Chaosium will be successful in attracting more and more people in the fold. A good branding and good communication around RQ and Glorantha can mean more success, which lead to more revenue that can turn into more and better RQ and Glorantha content. And ultimately I assume that's what most of us are hoping for.

    13th Age in Glorantha Update

    Beautiful! Looking forward to this other take on Glorantha!

    New RQ Design Note #18 - New Logo

    Yep I would agree here - the QuickStart logo is great and impactful, while this one feels more 'dated' in terms of design. The emboss effect on the stony background, feels like a bad 3D clipart...yurk, It wont derail me from buying it (been buying Glorantha since the 80s), but a good cover and logo are important for a first good impression and capturing the vibe of the game.Then maybe I'm too old and this is what would attract more of a new generation, in which case Go for it!

    What edition of Heroquest are you using?

    Ian - thanks for the welcome, and I just got my copies of both The Coming Storm and Eleven Lights yesterday, look great! Oracle - thanks for the links, yes it does count, and after looking quickly at them I can see how they can help better get the system. However to be honest I was really just pointing out my interest (or craving maybe) for some video actual plays for RQ/HQ/Glorantha. I learned a lot about many games and also about new/different role-playing approaches through actual plays videos - and to tell the truth they also did an amazing promotional job on me. I'm trying to get back in the hobby after a very long hiatus and I bought a ton of great games and supplements in the past months because/thanks to them. I guess I'm just a little sad to not find enough RQ/HQ/Glorantha material. Anyways, enough of me hijacking this thread and thanks again for the links.

    First post after lurking the forum for what feels forever...an online actual play would be such a great tool to both teach and advertise HQ (and Glorantha). my 2 cows
