  1. Basically what I am getting from this is a Gloranthan NO (which as we come to understand covers 80% of the cases). I would say the intent and action (raising the child and performing the rituals) would count for a lot. Thank you everyone. This was informative.
  2. Ok, what about if one finds a (magical) egg and hatches it by donating Magic Points and POW?
  3. Requirements for Ernalda priestess: Rune Priestess Standard, plus a candidate must have given birth to a healthy child. What is if the candidate in question belongs to a species which does not give birth as a human? Is it possible to become a priestess if for example one lays eggs?
  4. How about Shapechange Troll to Carrot? Can they then kill it and eat it?
  5. Glorantha has multiple types of life forms animal, plant based, fungal, stone, fish, spirit, undead (anti-life). What makes plant based life different for CAs from fish or animal? Are they allowed to eat fungus? It seems the standard is arbitrary and only makes sense form Real Life point of view. That is why I was saying that the defining factor should be intelligence.
  6. Sure, but that is specific case due to the hate between Mostali and the Aldryami. There are myths for that.
  7. Its more than just elves, there are other intelligent plant and fungus life forms in Glorantha, and what about animated lifeforms, and Mostali? "Vegetarianism" just does not fit in a fantasy type setting, including Glorantha, especially as a dietary restriction.
  8. Fine, since you are basing the structure on myth what is the myth which allows CA to kill/eat plants?
  9. And I am saying that there is no reason that CA are specifically allowed to kill (even with Food Song) plant based life and are not allowed to kill insects, fish, reptiles, or mammals. Sentience should be the determining factor with all life.
  10. Sentience was not a defining factor in your statement (it is in mine) and why are we limiting ourselves to humans? What prevents a Chalana Arroy Troll or an Elf? When talking plants then sap is equal to blood. Life is life in a fantasy setting. There is no difference between a mammal and vegetable both generate spirits for example. Real life vegetarianism should apply.
  11. Nonsense. You are saying that killing an elf is ok, but a rabbit is not?
  12. Money equals power in these games. Give them what you think the should have. If you give too little, then up it next time, if you give too much, then give less. Only you know what is the right amount for your game.
  13. Since everyone is chiming in here is my 2 cents worth: 1. CA can kill Chaos and Undead even if they are intelligent. 2. Anyone (not Chaos or Undead) are under CA's protection if they have been incapacitated by the CA (such as wit a Befuddle or Sleep spell) 3. CA is allowed to hunt for food. 4. There are restrictions on the spells CA is allowed to learn and other, friendly cults would not teach them to the CA even if asked. 5. CA would not be taught weapon skills, same as #4, but can be taught Shield skill. If they use it to attack, the consequences are on their heads. 6. Only Chaos, Undead, and possibly ZZ worshippers would attack a CA as the consequences are drastic on them and their communities.
  14. I think she can, but she will never advance beyond an Initiate in Ernalda and may not be able to advance above God Talker in BG.
  15. Its all a matter of where you want your game to be. I give all the checks and we do them weekly as long as the PCs are in place where they can rest.
  16. Its much batter than that:
  17. The cult was left open for the gamers to develop.
  18. If you cast both Multispell and Soul Fire, it is basically a 2 point Rune spell. As long as you do not allow a 4d3 stacking I think Soul Fire as 2D3 is good. Basically let it add +1D3 to a Disrupt and most people will start casting 2 x 2D3 spells or 3D3, with each additional Multispell giving another 1D3 of stacking or another 2D3 spell. Personally, I think it may be a better result than the 4D3+4 that soltakss suggests.
  19. In RQ3 I believe it made Disrupts do 2D3.
  20. Any particular spells or all of them?
  21. Too bad it does not work on players.
  22. What Rune magic are you giving her under RQG rules?
  23. I would suggest redoing those as JC products. Couple of hindered copies there would be worth it. I am sure there would be people willing to work on that. If you can't find one, message me.
  24. That is an issue with play-by-post, but it can be dealt with by asking for multiple rolls from players with statement of intent.
