  1. Raiders of R'lyeh!

    Good, then this thread can move into the Basic Roleplaying forum
  2. Raiders of R'lyeh!

    Cheers it's just a few folk have said its OQ based and I'd like it confirmed one way or another.
  3. Raiders of R'lyeh!

    Just to confirm is there an OGL with OQ mentioned? Or is it based purely off the MRQ SRD?
  4. Raiders of R'lyeh!

    Note I'm not a backer, there were too many factors that made it a 'nope' for me, but from a quick look at the preview if they have used the OpenQuest SRD they've built a much more complex game on top of it. Look at the character sheet for evidence of this. There's a split between Common and Special skills, there's Action Points, Special Abilities, and Hit Locations are back in. The character gen chapter is a whopping 44 pages (OQ is currently 17), most of which seems to be because they've gone back to full page professions. OQ is free form character generation, and the nearest equivalent to BRP style occupations is ready made concepts of which there is one page devoted to in OQ. In my opinion, they've added so much in, that there's probably very little of OQ left in the text.

    I've been very impressed by the improvements in DriveThru's colour offering recently and their black and white print is nice and crisp too. Lulu too is much better than when I first started using them almost ten years ago!
  6. Hi Just a quick note to say that OpenQuest Basics is back in print over at DriveThruRpg.com and D101games.com/store. This is the latest full-colour version. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/127007/OpenQuest-Basic-Edition

  8. OpenQuest Refreshed is now available

    It's more a bug fix + small update to the Combat chapter (to bring it in line with the work I did on OQ).
  9. Hearts in Glorantha issue 6 is going to have a bit of a Rq2 celebratory theme, seeing as it's now available again as RuneQuest Classic.People have fond memories of the game and I plan to have a page or two of them in HiG 2.So either drop me a line at newt@d101games.com or post you favourite Rq2 moment here As for HiG #6 eta, I'm busy putting articles into layout and commissioning art so I'm looking for a December release at present.
  10. OpenQuest Refreshed is now available

    I'm sorry you've got caught as I'm transitioned between print editions. I've sent you a pm to see if I can sort things out for you.
  11. OpenQuest Refreshed is now available

    Hi Stephan The DriveThru PODs are the only versions available since it doesn't make sense for me to do them any other way. I have dreams of doing an OpenQuest 10th Anniversary Special Edition which would be in hard back with a very limited print run, that would fund via Kickstarter and only be available to backers, but that's what they are for the moment River of Heaven is getting updated as we speak, so I'd hold off getting a print version until that's done. If you get the pdf now, it will be updated to the new version when it comes out.
  12. OpenQuest Refreshed is now available

    Hi Skarl No, you've not gone mad. I've just updated the version to 1.1, and as well as applying the hand full of fixes to the pdf version I've added them to print version. Which means they become unavailable on DriveThruRPG for a week or so. I'll be sending you the up to date version, so be aware that there will be a delay of about a week while I get new copies in.
  13. Official OpenQuest Errata

    OpenQuest has been updated to print 1.1. The full errata sheet can be downloaded from D101 Games' website in the download section. OpenQuest print 1.1. pdf As well as the changes themselves it gives details of how the errata is implemented in the pdf and print versions of the game. Please note 1.1. has been applied to both the pdf and the print version. Customers who bought the pdf from either DriveThruRPG.com or D101games.com, will need to redownload the pdf to get the updated version. The errata has also been applied to both OpenQuest and OpenQuest Basics. Here is the summary of changes. Print 1.1. September 5th, 2017 Page 17 Relationship skill mentioned in Skill Table. The Relationship skill was removed in OpenQuest Refreshed, and this entry was left in error. Deleted. Page 91 Call Spirit Missing text at the end of the description: “or possesses the caster if it is a Disease or Passion spirit.” Page 92 Counter Defence and Counter Attack Both these spells should have the spell trait Instant. Page 95 Fist of the Wind Spell updated to remove the confusion of when the spell is cast and when its effects take place. Fist of the Wind Instant Each point of Magnitude allows the caster to make one extra unarmed attack. These attacks happen in a blur of motion as soon as the spell fires, at the same INT rank that the spell is cast on instead of the normal DEX rank that the character's attacks happen on.
  14. Any idea when Khan of Khans gets delivered?

    Getting quite excited. Really looking forward to playing this with my kids
