    Being interested and playiing a lot of Rpgs since 1990....in no particular order (mixing old and new stuff): Tunnels & Trolls, D&D (mainly red box, AD&D 32 and 3.5), Conan (d20, 2d20), Pendragon (5th ed.), Vampire, Cyberpunk 2020, Ars Magica, L5R, CallOfCthulhu, One Ring, Eclipse Phase (1st ed.), Shadowrun (2nd and 3rd edition), Blood&Honor (by JohnWick), etc...and many many others I do not remember!
    I've been helping Riotminds with very, very small contributions to the amazing Trudvang Chronicles and Lex Occultum.

  1. Given this text...."This ritual must be undergone whenever a cultist sacrifices for the spell of Proteus". If "sacrifice" means "pay POW to learn a spell", does it mean that Proteus should be learned again (each time paying 1 POW) for each form acquired through Meld Form?
  2. Sorry if I resurrect an old thread, but it made sense to keep this doubt of mine in the same discussion. My doubt regards the relationship between Meld Form and Proteus spells. Once I performed "Meld Form" to obtain a shape, how many times can I use that specific shape with Proteus spell? Once or many times? Is each use of "Meld Form" connected to a single use of "Proteus"? Or can I collect many shapes through "meld form" and use them all in different times, maybe even multiple times? Sorry, I'm not very expert in RQG things, and my confusion derives from the fact that "Meld Form" is an enchantment (so I supposed it was kind of permenent thing) and the first line in its description is very confusing. "This ritual must be undergone whenever a cultist sacrifices for the spell of Proteus"..... the reference to "sacrifices" does not make sense to me. Thank you in advance!
  3. As a further note, I feel that Book II should explain what happens to Melee Distances after a charge. If somebody mounted with a lance charges and hits a sword wielder they will possibly start next round still at Long melee distance. If he fails and the swordman wins they'll possibly be at Normal melee distance. Nevertheless, considering how the physicality of a charging horse works it seems odd to me that the mounted attacker remains in Normal melee range in both cases.
  4. Book II, the Fabled Realm, p.19, Table 3.1. A failure triggers a Passion Crisis roll. A fumble lowers the passion by one point but no Passion Crisis roll is mentioned. This clearly contradicts page 20 "....a failed or FUMBLED roll on Table 3.1: Unopposed Passion Roll Results is one way to trigger a Passion Crisis." It is obvious that the fumble entry should be read as "Passion Crisis, Lose 1 point from the Passion". The same problem is also present on the quickstart p.4, table 1.1.
  5. and the other thing that this stuff, from a graphic point of view, is still in an "draft form". No images, no layout, just text. It really looks like an (incredibly good) homebrew material written by a deeply devoted pendragon lover. I had no idea it was an officially commissioned book.
  6. Thank you! I had no idea that it was a pirate pdf of an officially commissioned work... I'm sorry about it. This pdf was in an old hard disk and I frankly do not remember how I got it or who gave it to me, since it's something it was in an at least-decade old folder. I really hope the 6th edition of this will come up, sooner or later, as this is definitively something that I would buy.
  7. Hello, among my old files I found the pdf "lands of Tristram" by Jeff Erwin. I maybe downloaded it so many years ago and I forgot about it. I guess it's all homebrew material....but it looks very good, especially given that I need to send my players to Cornwall!. Does anybody knows if there was an attached map anywhere? Thanks a lot!
  8. OK! It seems like the whole situation is messy enough in terms of published events that I can change what I dislike as much as I want without conflicting with anything in the GPC (at least with this version of the GPC....only God know what the future 4-volumes GPC will tell about it). I just hope next KAP edition will have some form of better Gazeteer or Atlas for each time-period (maybe one per each of the 4 GPC volumes).
  9. @Morien thanks a lot for the information. That's some good material for being inspired to create a story.
  10. As per title, does anybody knows what happens to the "Marche" after the Uther period? Do we have any published names for Heirs and/or Sons of the Duke?
  11. Listen, I'll stop using whatever word you feel it's offensive but, please, I never accused anybody of "moaning" and "whining" only because they have different opinions.
  12. If the word "she-knight" is insulting I beg your pardon. I'll stop using it. As a non-native English speaker (and maybe also as a non-English/non-American, living in a different context, where these issues are felt in a way more relaxed way) I did not realize the amount of sexist offense that word implies for you. From now onwards I'll call them "female knights" but, frankly, I do not feel I'll speak again about it soon,, since tones here have been over-exagerated on that topic. It is not really worth discussing it anymore. On the other hand, if you really think that my different opinion was just "moaning", please, check the number and length of my posts above. I was the first person raising the problem, but I just stopped replying when I've seen there was no point in speaking about it. I just accepted that my opinion on the matter will not change anything for anybody in Chaosium. And now again: I'm eager to see KAP 6, I'll just ignore what I dislike and enjoy the rest.
  13. That would be awesome. I agree with so many of Atgxtg's arguments on female knights, but I also accept as a matter of fact that my opinion will not change that part of KAP 6. And KAP6, from the few other details thus far revealed, really seem to be an interesting book to have (I'll just keep on ignoring those odd she-knights at my table). Therefore, let try to focus on other details! And, in that sense, I really hope that the game will give more opportunities for "traditional" Ladies to be played in canonical female roles, but also having more options than just that Industry skill. In this sense, some new Court/Social mechanics would be really welcome, and not just about ladies, but also about knights. And also, maybe, new systems for so many other details of nobles, ladies & knights' lives (Music? Trobadours? Medieval fashion? Chess and other games? Some decent Falconry rules?).
  14. Thanks a lot! Any news about the Book of Castles?? ( Maybe @sirlarkins ??) I've been waiting for that book since forever!!
