  1. Perhaps if you divided the prices by 10 they could be of use in special cases. Like I houseruled the ability training prices to cost only 1/10 of the book prices. Some gym coach or potion maker shouldn't rival the Red Emperor in wealth.
  2. Yeah, agreed. I've houseruled that 'long spears' can be used one handed, so that they work like the historical spears.
  3. But having a pet dog is even worse!
  4. Yeah, agreed. If the world has greatswords, then what's stopping people from making a sword that's between great- and broadsword?
  5. Steppe pony isn't a breed, but if you mean Mongol horses, only the largest of galanas are that big. A typical galana is the size of a Shetland pony.
  6. Theirs are even smaller, that hulking brute i posted was the size of a massive western warhorse.
  7. The RQG pygmies are just slightly smaller than other humans (-2 to SIZ), and I calculated it in. RQ3 pygmies were somewhat smaller, but I have no idea where their stats were. And Gloranthan bisons aren't particularly large, and the biggest horse breed is the size of Icelandic horses, ie. quite small.
  8. Re: realism and Gloranthan mounts, I've found it simplest to think of them like the Gloranthan metals, ie. they only share a common name with Earth's equivalent. They are as fantastical beings as dragons. Eg. an impala warrior's mass is about 70% of impala's mass, while Earth's cavalry horses carried only about 25% of their mass, so impala cavalry is as realistic as a flying dragon. But since this is a fantasy game, you can just say that a wizard deity did it.
  9. In one Finnish translation, maybe a line in the Glorantha box, the sables were translated into that kind of sables.
  10. Thanks for finding and answering my question. I had completely forgotten about this 😄
  11. In RQ3 with its weekly POW increases it was quite common. And sometimes it was even done just for money to pay for training.
  12. When I ran that campaign in RQ3 my group had similar problems wrt. attending seasonal worship ceremonies. This is a big change for many campaigns.
  13. Thanks, this is a nice clarification. I didn't know that initiates could hold their own worship ceremonies.
  14. Because initiates need to worship on every holy day if they want to keep on being initiated. Eg. Ernaldans have to spend a day every week on worship ceremonies in their temple.
