  1. I wasn't going to worry about purchasing the RQG Starter Set, but now it is a different story - I'll get it for the Adventure(s), the Strike Rank counter, and those maps alone !!! πŸ˜€
  2. Wow! Buying both the Magic World core book and the Advanced Sorcery book in pdf format for a total of $6 USD (approx $8 AUD) is a pretty good deal. But with limited promotion I don't think it's going to get too many new sales. Most of us who know of the game already have the pdfs. Unless there are advertisements on DrivethruRPG and various outher forums, then I don't think the sales are going to be all that high unfortunately. But I'll be spreading the word where I can
  3. Watching this with interest, as I really like the simplicity of OQ. This setting looks really good, not to mention great production values in regards to evocative artwork. I just pre-ordered the core book from OSPREY, and will probably do likewise when the campaign book is available!
  4. I think MW mainly failed because it fell short of contemporary production standards, and the fact that there was little to no support for it from Chaosium - one extra book is not enough. It needed to have example settings, adventures, all that kind of thing. Even if it had any of that, it also needed not to look like it was stuck with production values that were a generation out of date. I don't think it attracted many eyes in the bookshelves of game stores, and I never actually saw it in any game stores. Chaosium simply didn't have any wind in the sails of it's own boat. So tha
  5. Dumb Theory: The Red Emperor and the God-King were boyhood rivals, possibly even lovers
  6. hhhmm I'm on the FB Group but must of missed that post. Now that does sound promising!
  7. Sounds good to me, and may fill the gap until more canon is published. It has been 5 years of waiting so far, and another five years could easily be on the horizon for more official Malkioni content. It's entirely understandable, given the amount of content needed just to flesh out Dragon Pass, as I am just as eager for more publications on Sartar, Prax, Esrolia, and also the Lunars - at least Dara Happa and Peloria. So any official Malkioni publications may be some time away. However if it ends up being 2025 then its doubtful what troupe I will have to run it with by then
  8. Yeah I am toying with getting Men Of The West, it does look pretty good. However after changing the Malkioni depiction several times, I really would love to see some more official canon for the Malkioni. I never really get into the debates regarding magic and such, I don't really care if Malkioni use Sorcery or Rune Magic. The later would have been preferable, just to un-complicate matters, but that horse bolted several decades ago, so I just go with the flow. I am more interested in how these fantasy cultures are presented, and what historical civilisations can be considered
  9. Five years since we kicked off this thread speculating about the Malkioni in the current version of Glorantha. Wow time flies...😁
  10. Hmmm I just grabbed Pavis, Big Rubble, Borderlands, and Trollpak. Perhaps next month I might grab Griffin Mountain, Cults of Prax, Cults of Terror - that's my adolescent RQ fantasies covered! Can't wait for them to arrive!!!
  11. Hmm this looks good. Just ordered the pdf copy, and can't wait until I get a hardcover version!
  12. Cool, thanks for the above link! Interesting to see that Greg envisoned Big Sur for the Manirian Coast - I was not aware of that - however, it certainly makes sense It's pretty cool, as when I was last down on the Great Ocean Road (Victoria, Australia), I remember thinking that this could be what the New Coast of Maniria must be like, well in summer anyway, and it turns out that it fits Greg's vision reasonably well
  13. Yes I can't remember if I read that here or in the Glorantha FB group. Years ago I read that Greg Stafford initially received geographical inspiration for Dragon Pass and Prax from North American terrain, and this has been confirmed many times since. Not to say that Europe isn't a good analogy, the Alps, the Balkans etc. But I do like to keep the Americana flavour for Dragon Pass & Prax, as it makes it feel more unique when you add the ancient world-influenced cultures to it. So I am using the Sierra Nevada range and the American Rockies for alot of my geographical references fo
