  1. Wow. That is a really interesting idea, gents! Good work. Haven't looked at the numbers, but feel that Armour should be rolled into it somehow, to reduce maths even further.

  3. Sounds good. Meantime, should we hold off posts/mods to the wiki, to minimize your conversion job?
  4. Remove the Wiki? I've just been encouraging people to use it! It might be that it looks so good and 'official' that folks are a bit scared to put their stuff there. But if it were made clear we could & should, and perhaps made it a bit more prominent (particularly SharedWorld), then hopefully it would be used more. How do you think it should (have been) used? If it gets zapped, where will the content go?

  6. I have a bit of a problem here, in that I think I've gone off Glorantha a bit recently. Not more barbarian culture articles, please! I'd prefer a BRP fanzine. But if BRP stuff is allowed, it's probably worth supporting. (Rules for converting HeroQuest to BRP? >:-> No, I don't have the HQ knowledge to do any, just exploring the limits of heresy... )
  7. Yes - madness, meaning and the point of a campaign are supplied by the GM. GMs control use of the gates - so they could say 'never!' (and probably should say 'almost never'). The important part of the 'gates' idea is Authors collaboration on each others settings. If we publish some settings, hopefully one or a few will be interesting enough for other people to add contributions to them - and they will grow, faster than a lone author could make them.
  8. My view is people could publish their already-developed worlds/universes*, and others can contribute to them if inspired to do so. It would be up to the Author of that world/universe to accept any particular contribution or not. I'm hoping that some settings will get popular and they won't have to be developed just by the one individual author - although he/she would retain editorial control. * Yes, this might lead to some settings having to be in separate universes (for example, if their Authors have defined all galaxies or said their world is Earth, or said it's a cube floating in an infi
  9. Pardon my ignorance, what do you mean by the "culture wars"?
  10. Hi J. (In Triff's absence, welcome a-board!) Yes, bin that AD&D and go BRP! I had an AD&D campaign since the 70's, and wasted 20 years being dissatisfied and trying to fix the rules - before finally switching to a BRP/RQ-like system. And what a relief: It's great! It works! It feels so right! (And vampiric ducks are entirely optional). You'll love it, since you so like CoC... (oo-er, missus!)
  11. Depends on the system: From my brief experience of Traveller, chargen was the fun part...
