    [RQG] Increasing chance of success with magic

    No problems, I could have been a bit clearer. But it seems to me that meditate is almost always a bad choice unless you want to use it for ritual-like spells that aren't rituals. Detect spells maybe? Augment can be good if you have high augment skill and can afford to spend two turns augmenting before casting. Not being able to dodge or parry in one or two rounds is really dangerous in a fight.

    [RQG] Increasing chance of success with magic

    Because when the chance of success is high, rolling twice is better than a +5% bonus and rolling once. You have to spend one round meditating to get the bonus while not being able to parry or dodge. Instead you can just ignore the meditate and cast the spell again. If you have very low POW rolling twice gets worse than the +5% bonus.

    Do you use figures in RQ Poll

    I find it interesting that so many use miniatures, I wouldn't have thought it was so popular.

    The Open Seas ritual was a success...

    Is it using oars to travel?

    That Charming Sword...

    I think it's mostly because it is so well known. What makes it easier is the compartmentalisation of the player into a class with limited rules for that class. But spell casters are on the other hand more difficult in 5E because of the huge range of spells, at least if the player is somewhat indecisive or unfamiliar with the game. 13th Age makes that latter part easier, because it has compartmentalised the spells to each class too, which in my opinion is a much better choice. I regard 13th Age as much better than 5E.

    Robin Laws to pen two RuneQuest Books

    I wish for RQG books about Notchet, Esrolia and Holy Country.

    Robin Laws to pen two RuneQuest Books

    Sounds good. I do own the other books and as 7Tigers said above, the HQ Pavis book is great. Maybe Pavis is for Runequest what Masks of Nyarlathotep is for Call of Chthulhu.

    RQG print copy?

    Is this for both RQG and Glorantha Sourcebook?

    RuneQuest Dice from Q-Workshop

    I think they will be good to order when Q Workshop put up the variant set on the site again. The standard set is fine of course, but I wanted to order both sets, so I'll wait until then.

    Cargo ship classed "Hazard A (Major)". It's those dangerous roleplaying books!

    Robin Laws to pen two RuneQuest Books

    Don't take this to negatively - I'm happy for all books that get done for RQG. But I'm a bit disappointed to get another "Pavis" book. The last one for Heroquest was done 6 years ago is it? I'm very much for "do new stuff" instead.

    In my Glorantha with the Lunars on their heels from 1625 and on, there is going to be a lot more chaos instead. And for human adversaries, old feuds and wars might blossom again. I don't follow a canon storyline, I mostly make my own stuff up to suit my player group. Source books are useful anyway for me, even if I cannot use all adventures in them.

    Sarostip is a real nice and charming fellow.

    RuneQuest High Resolution Map PDFs

    I think I said it in another topic, but I really like when they offered the Sartar maps in really high resolution in a separate file. It did cost a few dollars, but for me it was totally worth it. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/68926/Sartar-Campaign-Pack

    RQG Release Party in Berlin!

    I saw MOB posted a few pics on the G+ site. Cool for the German (and other) fans that where there!

    Adventure PDF Release Timeframe

    Most material is locally centered, and little to none is connected with Prax/Pavis. But each period begins with a summary of the hero wars and things that affect the clan and tribe. And several episodes are centered around the big events, like Orlanth's death for example. In the adventure book Eleven LIght's there is a short piece on how to keep the story canon if you want to change things. I think that is a summary of events that will affect the clan. I typed it below. Spoiler (select to show) (s 1619 The Bat Comes to Sartar 1621-1622, Orlanth is Dead 1622 The Three New Stars 1622-1623 The Rising of the Culbrea 1624 The Eleven Lights 1625 The Liberation of Jonstown 1625 The Battle of Dangerford

    Adventure PDF Release Timeframe

    Yes, correct. I'd throw money on a RQG addon for those books. Edit: Another issue with older material is the different time setting in RQG, which is a few years forward. Coming Storm and Eleven Lights cover 1618-1625, whereas RQG is 1625+

    Adventure PDF Release Timeframe

    It is fairly easy to use older material, even from Heroquest. What will take time is creating enemy stats suited for RQG. But with the bestiary and rulebook it is doable. Can even use the Mythras enemy generator with some modding afterwards. In my opinion the two Red Cow books for Heroquest are the best material produced for Glorantha. They are fantastic.

    RuneQuest Dice from Q-Workshop

    I saw they had removed them from their shop for now. Now those misprinted dice will become collector items! Or maybe not. Perhaps they can be used for Broo with one extra large leg mutation. Will wait for them to put up the fixed set.
