  1. Ralzakark does indeed. The most noteable is a female broo called White.
  2. OK, so at BurritoCon in Fanboy3 in Manchester on Saturday, I had the pleasure of playing in Ian Cooper's new HeroQuest Glorantha scenario Wyrmghost Tower. This was my first time playing HQG, and to be honest, who better to run my first game for me than Professor Cooper? I found the mechanic startlingly easy once you get your head around it, and felt it was reminiscent in some ways to Gumshoe with the idea assumed proficiency. The scenario itself was really well realised and offers more in the way of lore for Glorantha. Line of the day: Player: So, these rabbbit people... are we talking Bugs Bunny here? Prof. Cooper: No, more like Donny Darko to be honest.
  3. I am so glad I got a refund on this when ASG was actually responding to questions. I think he can essentially say goodbye to being able to KS anything for a while.
  4. Yes, completely. This was a collaborative thing - I narrated the actual text of his review from back in 2016. I assume he used the word "pirate" due to it being a ship at sea. He published the text of my review on his blog. Why would he be promoting it if he thought I had stolen his words?
  5. Not sure what you mean.
  6. It looks fantastic. Two issues though. 1) It ain't cheap! 2) It's for a scenario that is not currently available for 7th Edition (not really a proper issue I know, and hopefully it will be revisited)
  7. I can live with that! Them just being available again would be a bonus.
  8. Well of course he didn't. He wore Gbaji's hollowed out feet.
  9. Wait. So I can't get into the fine details about the colour of Arkat's boots in these threads? Dayyum! I fully support this though. Some of the threads just devolve into "well actualy..." and for new people it must be REALLY intimidating.
  10. My only real "please do this" would be to make sure the slipcase Btmom set had the sew on expedition patch (or maybe six for your party).
  11. I am currently reviewing it chapter-by-chapter for my Patrons and it is absolutely top-draw fantastic. If it doesn't win, I will be amazed.
  12. - Shadows of Yog-Sothoth - Slipcase Beyond the Mountains of Madness - Revised and expanded Slipcase of Spawn of Azathoth - Revised and expanded Fungi from Yuggoth (not Day of the Beast)
  13. Are you treating Nysalor/Gbaji as one and the same?
  14. 40?! Care to throw us some tasty morsels as to what we can look forward to? Personally, I am hoping for a slipcase sets of Beyond the Mountains of Madness, Spawn of Azathoth and Shadows of Yog-Sothoth - reworked and expanded for 7E with pulp rules.
  15. It's not exactly the same, but it kind of mirrors the Lightbringers Quest.
  16. As Chaosium said really early on that they were producing a slipcase set, I have waited and will be buying just that.
  17. I really hope they don't reprint it. It's beautiful as it is and it cost an arm and a leg.
  18. I mean, they essentially mirrored the Lightbringers quest when stitching together the Red Goddess, although not in a way that would call an exact copy. Sounds like you've been drinking some of Eurmal's "special stuff" and listening to God Learner tracts.
  19. Any good will that Scott Glancy had must surely have evaporated by now. I would be amazed if anybody backed anything he ever did again.
  20. I am currently reviewing it chapter by chapter for my Patrons. Firstly, the production values are just glorious. The handouts are amazing (though not as amazing as the HPLHS set - those are out of this world), and the books have great art throughout. The intro chapter really sets the scene, doing a great job of encapsulating the entire campaign and the prologue in Peru does a good job of introducing Jackson Elias in a manner that makes him a person rather than a bit of a gaming meme. He never becomes the focal point, and gives good reasons as to why the investigators eventually consider him a good friend. As per every edition since the Complete version, the Australian chapter is part of the canon storyline and is included. It's also worth mentioning that Pulp Cthulhu gets proper treatment here - not just two pages at the end - it is throughout the book whenever appropriate. My hope going forward is that nothing more is added to it. I could envisage it becoming a bit of a bloated woman of a campaign if they extended it further. I think it would be great if Chaosium basically said "right - that's it. Masks will not be changed any more than this. This is 100% the definitive edition" as a kind of tribute to the late Larry DiTillio.
