  1. Lol, that I know you A^2 resident. But it didn't make it's way East to the Metro Detroit area until last Wednesday! I just want to know when the Glorantha museum opens it doors there?
  2. My FLGS had it on order ahead of time and just received it on Wednesday. My copies are finally in hand. Local availability in Michigan.
  3. So to be clear on the 3rd bullet, if we bought a hard cover RGQ we will be able to get a slipcase set with all 3 books with a credit for the RQG hard cover and credit for any of the other 2 PDFs we purchased?
  4. We use minis and a battle map. If I don’t have an appropriate mini then I have round pieces I can write on with a dry erase marker for the enemy. But all the PCs have a painted mini, and I pretty much do all the painting as I like the hobby aspect of that. One I painted attached.
  5. Love to see the Rubble and New Pavis maps done up at some time!
  6. I thought the answer could be this. So if I want to see the content as it is released I have to either buy it all from you or purchase the PDF from you and then the printed version from the FLGS and spend more on it. Was hoping someone had solved the problem of handling this with the various retailers and companies involved. I'll just have to make my decision based on need of the product and whether I can wait for the printed version at the FLGS. My guess is "core" material I'd want sooner, but adventure packs and items I won't use immediately I can wait on.
  7. So I want to support my local gaming store. They are a bits and mortar shop. But I also want to get my hands on the PDF version as you release those well before print. So is there a way to get the PDF when released somehow and then buy the printed version at my local store and get the discount? I want to foster sales of the new Runequest line locally and get more people excited.
  8. They are in the PDF of the adventure book available now.
  9. No priests yet to bring up the 1 point DI rune spell. But then again in the past they never really took this anyhow preferring other rune magic. They always tended to avoid one-use Rune Magic and wasting POW earned. I also don't see how removing the roll to cast changes the spell or strike rule? You still follow that. Just that at the end of casting your spell, it works automatically. You are still limited in what you can do in your round and with available strike ranks. And the spells still do take many strike ranks to cast.
  10. So I've GMed 3 sessions with my long time gaming group. 5 of 6 of them are old school RQ2 players going back to the 80s. So we've been playing together awhile. The one thing that they all universally don't like in the rules is having to make a roll to cast their Spirit and Rune magic. They truly get very frustrated spending the time trying to cast a healing spell or combat enhancement and wasting all of that time in combat. They are of course not used to this as we played RQ2 until the RQG was released recently. I of course let them know they need to remember to augment their rolls as they can, but there really is a limit on how much this can be done. I also point out it works both ways. So the question is does anyone else get complaints about this from old school players? Have you modified the rules in any way to make casting easier, especially when you are outside of a stressful situation? How do you handle this when it comes up? Would removing this rule change combat much in your mind?
  11. She is active online. You could ask her and she would answer I am sure.
  12. Ask in the Rules Clarification thread?
  13. It looks to me if both rolls are a critical, then you resolve it all as a normal damage roll and armor counts (as well as the parrying item). They kinda cancel each other out. Which is what I am seeing on the table at 199. Same thing if they are both specials.

    Someone (and I don't remember who) once told me that this name came about when Greg was asked if he had a name for this city. And his response was a very quick "Not Yet" which sounded very much like "Nochet" and it stuck. Anyone able to confirm if this piece of lore is true or not?
