    First game system was D&D3.5 in my teens, moved to Pathfinder instead of 4e. Been mostly playing Pathfinder and RuneQuest since.
  • Current games
    Currently GM an RQG game centered on New Pavis & the Rubble in 1625 starring a morokanth, troll sorcerers, and a Praxian herder in way over his head.

    Longest character was a mercenary Knight-Sorcerer in a game based on RQ3 but so heavily homebrewed & houseruled I barely recognize it anymore. It's set in Glorantha, mostly in Lunar territory.

  1. When I'm playing D&D/D20 stuff in my RQ games, I use a rule of thumb of Modifier ×5 equals skill percentage. So if an opponent has +12 to hit, that's 60%. It's not perfect, obviously, but it gets the point across and helps me fly by the seat of my pants from the book. Magic's a lot harder, because the approach to magic in D&D and in RQ/BRP is pretty different. The biggest difference is HP pools. This seems especially true in 5E, where basic scenario design seems to be about HP attrition and how players respond to it. Plus, depending on your edition, there may be a greater variety
  2. Well, a few of them have some clacks in their pocket, although none are especially wise about spending them...
  3. This month's issue of Monster of the Month is now available — Happy Halloween! Content Warning: This supplement contains themes of grisly horror and violence. Gamemasters are encouraged to confer with their players before bringing this material to their group's game. The Troupe of Terror presents a gang of six man-eating ogres with which the gamemaster can terrorize their players. Woken to Illumination by the magical performances of the Puppeteer Troupe, they represent the worst evils enabled by that mystical consciousness. Now, these ogres roam Dragon Pass in the guise of minstrels
  4. Woods of the Dead Play Aids This simple supplement provides all of the nonplayer characters published by Chaosium in the chapter “Gloomwillow’s Hollow,” from The Pegasus Plateau. Using the same printer-friendly non-player character format as used in Akhelas’s series Monster of the Month, this product ensures you’ll not feel the urge to scribble spell effects, limbs lost, or magic points spent on your nice, shiny, hardcover books. You need to own a copy of The Pegasus Plateau to make full use of this product. You'll probably also want a printer. You can get this product on t
  5. Thanks so much for listening to those of us asking for POD versions and making them available. I've been wanting a physical copy of Pavis for a while, and picked up Trollpak & Griffin Mountain while I was at it. Really appreciate it, and I hope making these turns out worth your time and energy.
  6. I'm very excited to share that Treasures of Glorantha Volume One has earned its Electrum bestseller medal! Many thanks to everyone who's picked it up thus far. If you'd like to see what the fuss is about, you can pick up a copy yourself in PDF or Print On Demand here. If you've already purchased Treasures, I'd love to hear what you think. Ratings are wonderful support, and reviews are a great way to give me feedback for the next one. Once again, thank you.
  7. You've clearly not seen the sketches I send my poor artists for JC stuff. This is a lovely sketch. Thanks for sharing!
  8. This month's #MOTM is now available on the Jonstown Compendium! Children of Melikaphkaz previews material from a forthcoming work for the Jonstown Compendium, Melikaphkaz: the O-God of Traps. Included in this issue is a short-form version of the cult of Melikaphkaz (like those in the core rulebook), as well as several monsters for his worshipers to summon, or for the gamemaster to use elsewhere in their Glorantha. MAY THE SHELTERING DARK PROTECT YOU ALL! About this Series: Monster of the Month is a series of new bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha
  9. Completely by accident. Was checking the Waha cult in Cults Compendium and fortuitously noticed that the Biturian sidebar was relevant to this conversation, so I figured I'd give the Guide a quick Ctrl-F as well.
  10. Not sure I would use our world's timeline take on discovery to have much weight here, but having been around the fora for a while I am sure I will get disagreement on this. My take is all you need (as best I understand it) is a herder watching his goats (I will admit this could be hard) getting frisky munching on berries on a hill. Coffee is available from the islands of Avaranboth (Guide 481), and Savaronabhumy (Guide 494). It's also mentioned in "The Travels of Biturian Varosh" (Cults Compendium 77). Ctrl-F is a good starting point with these sorts of wonderings.
  11. Hah, wow! I thought I was luckily on the early end for getting discount code before seeing official word . How's the dead Aldryami edition looking?
  12. Looking forward to these a lot. Thanks again, Rick, for making it happen. I've been wanting a physical copy of the GC Pavis & Big Rubble for a while, and it looks like these RQ2 reprints will be perfect for armchair reading. I hope the POD process proves to be financially satisfying, as well as making some fans happy. I've been wondering, as you share pictures of your collection - do you have a favorite item? Is it even possible for you to name just one? I imagine it's a little like asking a bibliophile what their favorite book is...
  13. (I'd meant myself as Dishonorable, since I'm not supposed to participate... )
  14. Ain't there supposed to be a time limit on this thing? I know I'm ineligible for neato prizes as a sponsor of the contest, but are y'all interested in entries for Dishonorable Mention? Popped in my head recently, and with the extended deadline, I'm considering muddling something together...
  15. Speaking as a Minnesotan, yep, accurate. My experience compared to when I lived on the east coast (and a few hundred miles further south) is that it's more that our summers are shorter, rather than more mild. Maybe by 5 or so degrees, but anything above 90 is still pretty beastly. And then add humidity... Ugh.
