  1. A few? So many interesting ideas there. Thank you for writing all that down! We had another session last week, things progressed quite slowly, but they have now heard a bunch of rumors and have learned about people attending the festival and now there has even been a murder... The merchant put up a stall for selling stuff and witnessed a young and stupid assistant of a Lunar merchant trying to put a red cloak on a Yelmalio Templar, which ended badly. The merchant tried to calm things down and now knows about a business opportunity, we'll see if she can do something about it. At least I was able to sneak in some details about Yelmalio losing the power over fire and the taboo of red color, which I was happy about. I have not been GMing for many, many years before this group and while I it is fun, I constantly feel I'm not doing very good job and I'm really stressed before every session. I just hope my players are having fun and it gets easier for me over time. 😥
  2. Good point, illuminating the communication aspect of Issaries. I'll need to keep this in mind.
  3. @Joerg Lots of good ideas and stuff to think about, thank you! I forgot to mention, that the player has specified that her character specialises in wool and cloth products made of wool, including those made of wool of exotic animals. The Proximity of Prax of course presents opportunities with the nomads and their herds.
  4. Good point, the Apples already played a small part in the previous session, but I don't think the players are aware how special they are. I'll keep this in mind.
  5. Hello, everyone! Our group with me as their GM have started going through the harvest festival related (trying to avoid any spoilers here) scenario from the old RQ Sun County book using HQ rules, as described in this thread: There are three players, all Orlanthi characters, two of which are taking part to the festival activities. The third one, a female Issaries merchant, can not participate, but has been asked by a local town leader to investigate some Lunar activities in the town. However, the player also clearly was interested in doing some merchant business, too, which makes total sense and is something I absolutely want to encourage. Unfortunately there was a lot going on during the first session and I came up short with providing her some trading related leads for her to follow and I would like to do better next time. However, I'm drawing a bit blank here. I would like to tell her that "oh, you also notice there is this and that going on" without too much forward planning and see where it goes, so that she would have something small but interesting going on during the festivities (lasting a week). Also, if possible, I would like it to be something, that teaches the players something about Glorantha, which they are not very familiar with. Any ideas, oh you wise people? Garhound is not a very big city, only less than 1000 people, but it is the time of the most important event of the year, so there are lots of people visiting the town, including those trying to make some business there, legally or maybe planning something shadier. Governor Sor-Eel from Pavis and Count Solanthos from Sun Dome are both also present, with their delegations and soldiers, and things may be heating up...

    Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    No, I don't. I have the old Glorantha: Genertela, Crucible of the Hero Wars box, which describes Genertela quite well, but Pamaltela is a big unknown for me.

    Well, I ended up purchasing this one. It's a big book. Like really big. o_0

    Making Characters

    Thank you for this, this really helped me after I got very confused with the different methods represented in these books. I did not realize that SKoH is kind of based on HQ2 instead of HQG. Shouldn't that be 12 instead of 9? And if I understood correctly, according to the as-you-go method as presented in HQG during the sessions you still have 5 abilities and another 12 points to assign. Is that correct? Or are you only getting 12 points once and you can spend some of them during character creation and some while playing?

    Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    Thanks for the tip! Although now I'm afraid that if I purchase the Pavis book I might want to run those scenarios, too, and then I'm all torn to different directions and I can't make decisions...

    Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    Thank you so much for this detailed example of character conversion. This is just what I was hoping to do and this example will surely help me if and when some of my players might prefer a ready made character. That Pavis book looks like quite a hefty book and I feel like I'm already a little exhausted with S:KoH, but on the other hand the PDF version is not very expensive... And I'll surely take a look at your play-by-forum game, thanks for the link!

    As I'm not familiar with HQ1 rules, I was slightly confused for a while. Thank you for pointing this out.

    Sun County (RQ) with HeroQuest Glorantha rules

    Thank you guys, you're great! I'll get back to this after work (I live in Finland) but this is just the kind of advice I was looking for!
  13. Hello, everyone! I have a bunch of old RuneQuest books and I would like run them for my players but I don't feel like using the RQ rules. All those very detailed rules were cool when I was younger, but now, after getting to know HeroQuest: Glorantha and already with two sessions of GMing that under my belt I feel that is more to my liking at the moment. Has anyone tried redoing any of the old RQ classics with HQ:G rules? I would like to start with Sun County (this one: https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/classic/rev_6784.phtml ) scenarios. Some of my players might want to create new characters, some might want to have ready made characters. In Sun County book there are 8 ready made characters, but of course I/we would have to "convert" (probably more or less loosely) those characters from RQ stats to HQ:G ones. Any tips for that? Also, one thing I feel like struggling are the local Yelmalio worshipping characters. For example, which runes might be common for Sun County men and women? I'm sure I'm going to have more questions later, but here are my main worries at the moment. Please, share your thoughts!
