  1. I use this in Roll 20 - it seems to help remind the players (and me!). Rune Inspiration.pdf
  2. I ran it with a mix of old and new players and it was one of the best RPG experiences I have had - cannot recommend high enough.
  3. Because the 'Dragon Community' is so important in this, I have started creating a 'character sheet' for it. This is what I have so far - any suggestions for improvements gratefully received
  4. Running Six Seasons in Sartar has been one of the best RPG experiences I have had - thanks to the Andrew and great players. Company of the Dragon looks like it is going to continue that trend. The content is excellent and just as Six Seasons plotted a path from adulthood to... well no spoilers here, this book has a similar engaging arc. I really like the ‘episodes’ model for scenarios - it gives me, as a GM, guidance so I don’t have to be continually inventing new stuff each week - but the flexibility to individualise each encounter to suit our play. They sit somewhere between scenario hooks and full blown adventures. In Six Seasons we used all the suggested episodes from the back of that book and will be using all the new ones from this. In Six Seasons we did not use the community rules, our focus was more on the development of the young characters but it makes perfect sense to use them to develop the Dragon warband in this book. Andrew’s ability to incorporate mythos into interesting and engaging situations to role play is excellent and there are several included that will help introduce great ‘Glorantha feel’ to your game. I am not steeped in all things Glorantha and find this practical help invaluable and has given me the confidence to write my own HeroQuests and religious ceremonies and events. As in the previous story arc - this one builds into something that will live long in the GM and players’ memory.
  5. I think boxed sets are great - however I only really buy pdf these days.
  6. Purchased - been looking forward to this.
  7. Thanks for the response - I guess we will have to wait and see :)
  8. So are there any recommendation about any publications where I might find out about the relationship? Regards
  9. Hi everyone, I notice that in the Cult Compatibility chart (page 311) it shows Odayla is 'friendly' to Eurmal (only Odayla and Yinkin seem to be). What's the story behind that?
  10. I am as impatient as the next role-player but the team working on Runequest is small - so patience is the key...
  11. I am interested in shaman - do they generally follow the traditions of their cults and marry and raise children or does this vary between different spirit cults?
  12. I am really behind in typing this up... This instalment we have a birth, the adventurers coming to terms with their actions at Thunder Tower and the problem of Ungbar's Bite being low on provisions... Link to Google Drive document
  13. I agree this doesn’t need codifying (although everyone is free to do what they want – it is a game after all). I am increasingly coming around to allowing characters the opportunity to expend a magic point for a petty/folk magic effect. This is below the level that has a mechanical effect but does enhance the narrative. Say for instance Drenharl wants to impress Helet, a woman in the village he likes. He might pick a bunch of flowers for her and cast a ‘folk’ spell to make their scent sweeter. This would have no game effect but could add something to a narrative…
