  • RPG Biography
    I've been interested in rpg's ever since I saw the cover of "Different Worlds" issue #9 on a bookstore display stand (way back when....). I've played, and to a lesser extent GM'd, a number of rpgs, including D&D, GURPS Autoduel, Twilight 2000, Paranoia, etc. Took a break from gaming for over a decade and am now trying to make up for lost time, while introducing my kids to role-playing. I finally picked up Runequest, with the latest edition.

  1. I absolutely love this. And I may inflict this upon some poor PCs in the very near future. If you were interested in creating a circumstance in which the PCs get captured or completely robbed (or everything except for their loincloths), but without using a combat-style encounter, just use a bunch of mana flies. The adventurers get knocked out, only to come to once everything's been stolen or they're disarmed and in the middle of being tied up. Wacky hijinx ensue....
  2. Any chance we'll see an official write-up of the Cult of the Tiger? This was first introduced in the Aug/September 1980 issue of Different Worlds magazine for those who don't know. That issue was my first intro to rpg's and has a really evocative piece of cover art (in my opinion.)
  3. Any thoughts on what and how strong Delecti's response would be? I'm imagining that taking on one or a couple of trees and/or uprooting a few boundary rods would lead to several dancers in the dark eventually showing up (along with a contingent of zombies and skeletons) to reestablish their preferred boundary. But at what point (if ever) does Delecti decide to cut his losses for a few yards of land? And at what point do adventurers provoke retaliation against entire communities near where they're operating? This is definite encouragement!
  4. Actually, I haven't read that. I did go over (quickly, admittedly) the article about the Upland Marsh in Wyrm's Footnotes #15.
  5. I've been considering drawing up an RQG adventure/string of adventures that would involve trying to rollback the Upland Marsh, if only by a few inches. Do you all even think that this is even theoretically possible (if sticking to current Glorantha canon)? In my newbie RQG GM vision, this effort would entail trying to kill a black thorn tree (or several) and then destroying the magic rods that Delecti's servants had buried in the ground to act as markers of a marsh's new borders. All as part of an effort to begin a reclamation of parts of the marsh. Or, perhaps, the PCs are hired/convinced to try this, in order (unbeknownst to them) to draw Delecti's attention to the adventurers and away from some group making an attempt to infiltrate deep into the marsh for something. Thoughts?
  6. What about the durulz? I can imagine them enjoying all sorts of vegetable/fruit/grain-based dishes, but not all that much meat. Maybe fish (esp. stews) and escargot/snail dishes? Plus, one can imagine some Sartarite combining the formal observance of hospitality with insult, by serving a visiting duck waterfowl for dinner. Duck for a duck, anyone?
  7. Thanks for the input everyone. I got distracted by "real life," so forgot to check up on responses to my question. Again, I personally like hit locations and for a variety of reasons. But some of the people I'd like to introduce to RQG may not be so thrilled "too much bookkeeping," asif constantly revising your bag o' hit points current hp isn't a fair amount of bookkeeping.) I mentioned GURPS, since the way that combat system is set up you could have individual players using random hit locations, targeted shots, or just going with a default location all in the same combat if'n you want to. I was simply wondering if there might be a RQG equivalent.
  8. Let me start by saying that I'm a big fan of hit locations in an rpg combat system, especially since it makes targeted attacks and piecemeal armor feasible parts of a game. But not everyone (who I convince to try RQG) might be so thrilled. So, for players who don't really want to deal with random hit locations, does anyone think it would it be feasible to have a default target location with the RQG system? I'm thinking here of how in GURPS, if you don't want to deal with hit locations, you just assume that all attacks are to the torso. Has anyone done something similar in their RQ games? If so, how did you make it work?
  9. Hey all, Out of curiosity, have any of you run "Alone Against the Dark" utilizing just the rules from the starter set or does it absolutely require the full rule set? I ask since I was considering purchasing the starter set for one of my kids (and since I don't want to send the money on the full rules yet.) Thanks in advance for any input!
  10. Hope this won't be too much of a financial hit for Chaosium.
  11. Well, I'm not too upset at the chance of getting a free/discounted 2nd core rulebook. My kids already damaged the binding of the hardcopy I bought when they were first available. Now I'll either have two for use at home or I can pass a rulebook along to one of my friends (and maybe recruit another player!)
  12. Will all variant names (e.g. Uralda for Eiritha) be listed for each deity?
