    RuneQuest Core Rules Questions

    Based on these rules: p. 197 - "An adventurer may attack and parry with the same weapon in the same melee round." "Using a prepared weapon or shield, an adventurer can attempt to parry an attack on any strike rank of the melee round during which the parrying weapon is prepared (in hand and ready for use)." p. 217 - "A shield may not be ready for use when the adventurer is using a two-handed weapon. Two-handed weapons include all bows and crossbows." p. 219 - "It is possible to attack with a shield, giving up the chance of parrying that round." p. 224 - "The following conditions apply when an adventurer wishes to wield a separate weapon in each hand, other than a weapon and shield (...) Any adventurer using a weapon in each hand may use them for two attacks or attacking with one and parrying with the other, as desired." I read this way: 1. As a general rule, ad adventurer actually can attack AND parry with the same weapon in the same melee round. 2. In order to parry with a shield, it must be prepared. This means a) not be using simultaneously 2H weapons and b) not declare an attack with the shield. 3. When bearing two weapons different from weapon & shield, an adventurer can attack with both of them OR attack with one of them and parry with the other. Is this interpretation right? And another question: Q1. Can you bear a shield with, let's say, a Great Axe or a Bow, although you can not parry, in order to get some kind of "passive defense" against missiles, or, otherwise, what is the meaning of the expression "A shield may not be ready for use when the adventurer is using a two-handed weapon" in p. 219 Thank you.

    Best Rules for Comparing Successful Rolls

    I am very confused. Exactly, how works the RQG system, as writen in the Core Book? P. 142 "If both participants succeed, the winer is whoever achieved the best result". But, p. 143 "Tie: (where both participants achieve the same type of success but roll the same number)". What these means? And p. 230. Vasana rolls 74 in Air Rune (90%) vs. 41 in Harmony Rune (50%), so "Air overcomes Harmony". Why? Isn't it contradictory with the rule in p.142? Which is exactly the "vanilla system" when a tie is not an option?
  6. I ordered on 20th (Spain) and still awaiting shipment... Can we expect for shipping on nearby dates or are we supposed to wait for weeks?
  7. So, have you decided what exact time (GMT) will be available? I do not mind waiting until 3 o'clock in the morning to buy a leathered copy, if I am sure it will be available at that time.
  8. Maybe I haven't ask the question clearly: can I buy the leather-bound edition on the 21st?
  9. Ok, but will available on September 21st the leatherette cover version, or only the normal?

    Rulebook final update?

    I wonder if the current rulebook pdf is the FINAL version or it will be updated before the printed version is presented in the GenCon...
