    Boyish charm, winning smile. I'm beginning to find the odd grey hair....but hopefully in a 'George Cloony from ten years ago stylie'... i'm thinking that I should get my wife to write this.

  1. Thanks, Mike M That reassures me. I love the changes in 7e btw and i'm enjoying getting back into a game I love and haven't run for many years
  2. First of all, apologies if this is an old subject. CoC had a new edition, on average, every 3-4 years up until 6th edition. Then 10 years until 7e. I'm about to spend on a suite of 7th edition books, which has been out for 6 years. I understand that Chaosium has been under new management for a few years now and that their edition updates will be different from those of 1e to 6e. But we are now at roughly half way between the two. That is an average of 3-4 years and 10 years. Whilst reassurances are for the birds and you are unlikely to announce a new edition too soon and so affect the sales of the present edition. But are we not getting to a point where people will begin to get nervous about buying. I certainly am. It feels like an uncertain time to commit to what is an expensive endeavour. Are there any indications of the periods between edition releases?
  3. Actually, whilst we're on the subject. I quite like the idea that Cthulhu 7 has implemented and that's making everything percentile (stats). I'm supposing that adopting this for BRP wouldn't be too much of an issue.
  4. Thanks, Andre. just checking before throwing myself and my campaign into it.
  5. I’ve looked through a few pages, but couldn’t see if this had already been answered, so apologies if it has. Are there plans to release an updated version of BRP?
  6. Version 1.0.0


    It occurred to me that someone might want these without numbers.
  7. Boy. Good luck to Chaosium keeping up with those expectations. We do veraciously devour this stuff. I think if they produced a book a week, we would still be saying 'yeah, but where are the rules for .....' Still, better to have that level of enthusiasm and engagement than not. As for Heroquesting rules, they've been on the list for forty years or so. I suspect Jeff will have to do a Heroquest to retrieve this mythic guide. It's probably hidden in some magical form of the British library in the Gods Time.
  8. Version 1.0.0


    These are Glorantha counters I use for my game. They are 25mm sq. (or larger) on an A4 sheet. Print them. Glue them to an A4 piece of card. Cut them out. Use a scalpel and a metal ruler for the best (and safer) results. This is just a selection. Let me know if you want anything in particular. Lawrence
  9. As an aside. For my RQ game , I have produced a set of battlemap counters. These are essentially small, very simple colour illustrations, 25mm x 25mm. (larger for bigger creatures) Print them. Mount them on card and cut them out. I thought I might put a couple of sheets (A4 high res) up for people to use if they wish. Where's the best place?
  10. Indeed. It's nice to mix and match the runes in this way to shape the character. It's almost like an advanced form of D&D alignments (did I say that out loud).
  11. So throwing in a little more disorder (to sit alongside the Man rune) seems to be the correct chemistry. Thanks. I know YGMV. But it's still nice to be guided by the confines as detailed in the game.
  12. My other runes are pretty set at this point (being Fire and Darkness). The game is heading towards a 'Thieves World' type of game. The other character is a Lanbril worshipper. So Harmony, whilst well presented by Shiningbrow, would probably put my character at such odds with the other character (90% Disorder) as to be unplayable. It's a meta thing, I know, but we also have to play together. I suppose why i'm asking is define any criminal tendency in light of his Man rune. If Man has a deep relationship with the notions of civilisation and crime is something that can potentially undermine social cohesion. Is it incompatible?
  13. Are you saying that what I've described insofar as society is concerned, is best exemplified by Harmony and not Man?
  14. I'm playing a character whose main Rune is Man. Through a series of events too long to recount here, he is without a cult (except lay membership with Yinkin, having failed to become an initiate as his Beast Rune is greatly lessened). Originally born in Pavis, but forced to grow up in Sartar, he is now returning to Pavis. The obvious route is to become a Pavis Initiate (a distinct possibility). Although there is also Daka Fal and Flesh Man. My sense is that the Man rune, among other things, is about civilisation. That natural propensity of man to bind together and build societies. Not only that, but an acceptance of all that society is, including it's underbelly.
