  1. Sorry, an Heroquest is needed here so you will have to wait for the rules to be published...
  2. The Ambassador will Brooke no disloyalty to the JC! Congrats!!
  3. In countries were land ownership is a thing, considering how underpopulated most areas are, it should be pretty easy to do it as long as you want to clear new lands. Buying already well-developed land is another matter. Most probably you will have something akin to emphyteutic leases from some powerful institution (temple, aristocratic family); so in the end something not so different from the Sartarite situation.
  4. I am not sure that it will help but in the Early Middle Ages, in the East, one considered that the owner of a land would make an annual profit of 4.16% of the value of the land (net profit all things paid). This is for land they did not cultivate themselves but rented. So a good parallel for thane's land given to cottars for instance. I could check for small land-holders cultivating the land directly. So, yes, if a typical hide of land produces 80L/year, then its ideal cost would be ca. 1900 L, or 24 years of revenue. Since the exemple comes from the Eastern Roman Empire, it could help for the
  5. Hi, In a merry green vale is slowly amassing sales like a sacred beetle and I was wondering if anyone saw some important topic I did not address in the book, something that as a game master would be useful for you. If anyone spots such a blind spot, let me know, I will write the necessary complement and update the current version.
  6. @coffeemancer Sorry, I did not understand! In fact, I realized doing the book that working on the iconography was extremely fun, especially when my wife joined in, that I did not ask any professional help (well, the results would have been better obviously, but the "Maximum Game Fun rule" also apply when working on this kind of project!). So, honestly, I think I will do the same thing for the LSD. But I will be delighted to benefit from your drawings! And I am ready to add one scenario just for the Zorak Zorani Moomin Troll!
  7. @Scorus Thanks for sharing all that! That's both very concise and rich! Very useful to me as "my" Lysangs are neighbours! I especially liked the wyter's powers, well done! I hope you will post some after-play reports!
  8. @coffeemancer That's extremely generous of you! Of course, it would be very nice. The best place would be the Lysang Scenario Deck (I changed from scenario pack as I prefer the resultant acronym) as the layout of the sourcebook is done. I am not sure what is the professional-tier stuff you mention, but thanks nonetheless!
  9. Thanks!! That's actually a great feeling! In my job, I have published thousands of pages but curiously I never felt so excited! I have translated around one-fourth of the scenario pack, so hopefully, by mid-November. And yesterday, the Orthodox metropolitan bishop of Saint-Petersburg "liked" the book on Facebook: Glorantha is reaching ever weirder circles!!😝
  10. I would have them fight wyvern riders. The important point is for them to live an epic fight, changing the tide of the battle is probably beyond the means of a group of PCs considering the heavy weights involved in the event. They could also serve as "Valkyries", swooping to fetch back dead heroes' bodies in order to allow for their later resurrection. This is a very important task, I think.
  11. Hi, thanks to a sleep-deprived but still incredibly efficient Nick Brooke, the Lysang clan/Arfritha Vale Sourcebook, In a Merry Green Vale is now available on DriveThruRPG as a JC product. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/330010/In-a-Merry-Green-Vale?src=newest_community I hope you will enjoy it! Best,
  12. @David Scott I am sure you are right, just saying that I am always confused about who is who and completely lost in the many names of the same gods. BUT I am not complaining about it. I enjoy the ride.
  13. Always thought it was one of Glorantha's best paradox that the Fire pantheon is the most obscure of all.
  14. @blackyinkin Fantastic! That's a real pleasure both to see the map and to know that things are better for you now! Tarsh in Flames is such a fantastic book! So, yes, I fully endorse your profile's blurb!
  15. Ah ok, I thought it was larger than that. But I confess I don't follow you on the easy access part, or were you talking about Two Ridges being easily accessed from east and west sides?
  16. Yelmalio is Pole Star's son? Gods, I knew I was no grognard, but I realize now I am a Marie-Louise... @Jeff So when he swore allegiance to Orlanth (TBoHM, p. 76), he did not joined Orlanth's tribe? Same source p. 159 says "He was one of many warriors who joined the Storm Tribe, happy to have his actions prove his value rather than his blood or parentage". That is interesting to me in relation to the discussion in another thread about how you join another tribe as it could offer a mythic paradigm. So you swore allegiance to the king, join his tribe, but nonetheless you don't b
  17. @Jeff Isn't the Stasis, and even Light runes a bit strange for Rigsdal, a member of the Storm Tribe ? Or are Polaris/Pole Star and Rigsdal considered two different gods in the forthcoming GoG? No problem with that, just curiosity. Thanks
  18. Thanks Jeff! So something more akin to Masada (see below)? In a greener setting and with a different architectural style, obviously. Personally, because of the Two Ridges I had envisioned it more like Constantine in Algeria (see old map, cutting out the modern extension but extending the settled area to the Lazaret and hospital beyond the huge chasm).
  19. So more along those lines? Still no farms and pastures, but I don't think we will find a strict equivalent, or maybe something akin to the Avar's ring, but I don't know any archaeological reconstruction.
  20. Thanks a lot!! I had the same problem with Famous Bell which is on the West bank in TCS and on the East bank on the GM Screen Pack maps. A pity for my sourcebook, where the Frithan are still on the East bank, but it is a very minor issue. @David Scott I actually used Pen y Bannau hill fort the blue-print for Famous Bell!
  21. Sorry, my English is missing a nuance here. The "getting" is linked to "it" or to "the map in TCS"? Without comma after TCS I would go for the second solution but punctuation rule differ in French and English. No irony or whatever, I just want to be sure. Thanks!
  22. That's a beautiful map! I like a lot the balance between the graphic "simplicity" and the quantity of information it conveys. I notice a small point that bothers me slightly as my own Arfritha Vale sourcebook is now 99% ready to hit the JC: I gathered from previous publications, for instance TCS, that the Frithan territory was on the East (or right) bank of the Boranini, while this map put their main settlement on the West (or left) bank. Obviously, YGMV and all that kind of thing and TCS is not canonical for RQG, but I would like to know if, beyond that, this point mirrors an in-game, histori
  23. @jajagappa That's a brilliant text! I guess you spent time on this fellow, but still! Impressive! chapeau bas, as we say!
  24. Ah, Jajagappa is also a favourite of mine!!! @jajagappa I use a slightly more benign version: Jajagappa tears the soul from the dead flesh, but then, keeping it in its maw, he runs to the Courts of Silence, effectively protecting the souls from interception attempts by all sorts of demons along the way. A little bit like a hunting dog bringing back dead fowl to the hunter.
