  1. The weather was strange even by Dorastor standards. During this dark Sacred Time night, purple lightning balls were falling from the sky and bouncing on the ground before exploding. The rain falling from the sky was a foul smelling oily puss. The Riskland settlers were hold up in their stead praying to Orlanth Adventurous for protection. The door of the farmstead explodes inward in a shower of sparks, smoke and electricity. Coalescing within this mayhem, a spinning fiery golden disc-like creature stops spinning and a face forms out of the side of wheel. A musical feminine voice begs the adventurers to aid her in saving Tobros. “He was poisoned by Bagog and will die if I don’t cleanse him of the Chaos spawn.” If the adventurers help, she leads them to a cave opening recently revealed by a rockslide. The party proceeds down the long cave, warm moist air rhythmically blowing through cave. [Insert special effects here as adventurers enter Heroquest] The mission is to enter Tobros’s body and hunt down Chaos creatures trying to kill him from within. Sort of like the game Snit’s Revenge.
  2. I always thought Londril would make a fun pc cult to role play. Sort of like the uncouth peasant-type who can blend in both the solar and storm cultures. He wouldn’t stick out too much running with a bunch of Storm types like a Yelmalio would. I haven’t seen his RQG cult write up, but if his Lodril rune spell list carries over, he should be able to hold his own in a fight with firespear, enhance gustbran, salamanders and shield (via Yelm).
  3. Will this just be digital or will a print version be available?
  4. I don’t have my source material with me. What is the source and age of the crab shell at Crabtown at Skyfall Lake?
  5. I found the seminar on YouTube. It contained quite a few interesting tidbits I have never heard of before or since.
  6. Sandy Petersen spoke at Kraken a few years back and described various Gloranthan events. Are these canon? I was particularly interested in two troll actions in the Dragon Pass region that take place during the Hero Wars. The first is flooding the DP region with a hoard of gold, thereby crashing the economy. The second was expelling all the trollkin from troll lands to overrun the human settlements.
  7. My order status says “Awaiting shipment “. How soon after order is placed is your book shipped? I ordered on 21st.
  8. By all means let your players add visual or auditory effects to their spells. A disrupt spell could look like a spectral fanged snake striking a victim when cast by an earth cultist, or a spectral claw striking when cast by a beast worshipping cultist.
  9. Your fetch protecting your body while you discorporate does get the benefit of spirit armor. Yes?
  10. If a shaman has a spirit armor tattoo and goes discorporite, do they still get the benefit of the enchantment? I’m guessing not.
  11. What would be the target of the spirit armor enchantment? Could it be an object like a ring, necklace or cloak, or can it be cast on the body itself(tattoo)? The rune spell says “the enchantment imbues the object with the equivalent of 1D3 points of spiritual armor.” Is it common to attack an object with a sprit attack, or does a person holding the item get the protection?
  12. Looking through the book, which chapter does it mention “Rune Point caps”? For CHA it says it limits how much Rune magic can potentially cast.
  13. Never played a shaman in RQ2/3, but the new addition of Shamanic abilities really add a lot. The process of adding abilities seems a lot like self tapping.
  14. Question may have already been asked, but can I use the pdf discount with my local game retailer?
  15. @Sunwolfe, I am new to this forum, I am looking for Gloranthan background to support a RQG campaign. What I love about this addition is that the game system and world are the same. If there is a more appropriate forum, please let me know.
