    I'm having some trouble keeping straight in my head, all the different ways Runes interact with a character's personality. For example, on page 229 the 'Casual Use of Runes', it explains the roll, and this is practically the same as that written under 'Personality Disputes' on page 231. The only difference is you roll once for 'Casual' rolling but twice in the latter.

    Very interesting, thanks both I have participated in a wargame which took part via snail mail. It only lasted a few weeks but it was really cool. Different requirements though as a wargame seems to be more structured.

    Always been intrigued by pbp. How well does it work, what are the differences?

    I believe it is "play by post"

    Thanks for clarifying The rules (page 229) say you can only use inspiration via a Rune once per session. Do you think that's a bit restrictive? I was considering letting players use it once per game day.

    Page 224-225: Two weapon use "Training or experience in using a weapon left-handed does not help the right-handed attack or parry with the same weapon, except that the half effectiveness rule applies. For example, use of a dagger left-handed, allows the adventurer to use it right-handed at half the left-handed ability." Not sure I remember reading about a half effectiveness rule. Can someone give me an example of the above rule using some numbers? Also... "An adventurer using two weapons at 100% or more with each weapon skill may attack one foe twice at full skill rating (once with each weapon). An adventurer may attack two foes twice at 1/2 normal skill rating (each being attacked once with each weapon). Or they may attack one at 1/2 skill rating with one weapon and the other at 1/2 skill rating with that weapon and with the full skill rating using the other weapon." The red part is not clear to me. Which exactly is 'that' weapon and the 'other' weapon?

    Page 221: Attacking a Person on a Chariot "Damage taken by the chariot for more points than the chariot can absorb in one blow is taken on the hit location rolled in the attack. The armor on the location, if any, absorbs the excess points. The chariot then loses 1 hit point." I find parsing the above rule a bit difficult. Is it saying, on a successful attack, roll for location and roll damage, and if damage is left after applying armour, reduce armour by one? EDIT: Chariot fighting? How cool is that!

    Is there an 'in-game' rationale for underground complexes that need relieving of monsters and treasure in Glorantha? Earthdawn calls them kaers

    Not sure what's being said. Should the second part be ignored?

    Page 219: Second Column "If the adventurer using the lance has had no training in its use, they can use it at 1/2 their normal attack chance with a one-handed spear, unless their Ride skill is below that." Ok got that. Then... "It can also be used as a one-handed spear if the adventurer has the necessary STR and DEX to use a long spear one-handed." Not sure what the second part means. If the adventurer doesn't have the necessary STR and DEX they can use the lance at 1/2 normal skill as detailed above - anyway. What's the difference?

    That does make sense. Thanks all.

    Scores over 100% Just to confirm, if your skill is reduced from 130% to 100%, you calculate special/critical success chances on the 100%? Just seems a little odd that the more skilled competitor also suffers a little from this rule.

    I mean there are a good few variations on a similar theme when attacking/parrying.
