  1. After one and a half years of study I'm starting my RQ:G campaign. I was thinking to create the PC with the players ... but then I discovered RQ Starter Set is coming out. I think it will be better to use one of the pregenerated characters, to avoid to overwhelm the players with the complexity of the (beautiful) character creation process. When will it be published approximately? Will it have a pdf version too? Thanks.
  2. I often asked myself a thing that like most other in Gloranta, is for me very fascinating and confusing. What is the connection (that seems very "dynamic" depending the time) betweek the poor Elmal loyal thane horse's and Yelmalio. Now they seem to be the same thing and the cult of Elmal has almost disappeared as "Elmal" and survivies only under Yelmalio. But I am among these who discovered Glorantha through KoDP, and betweeen early sartarites it appeared to be an important deity. I wondered very much to discovered it was wiped away. Now I see that the KoDP repreentation is considered a
  3. Reading RQG I have not well understood how many adults are Initiates or only lay members to gods, it seems that almost everyone is Initiate to some God ..how much Lay members between adults, especially in Dragon Pass Area? Thank you.
  4. Yes, now that I looked to the Guide I have seen there are a lot of deities using runes non existing in RQG ...
  5. The fact is that runes does not seem a game mechanics element but an essential Glorantha world element, like to say that Orlanth exists only in RQG and not in HQG.
  6. One is trade, movement, trade, the other is harmony, movement. And trade rune is missing from RQG, as some other do. And perhaps there are more "glorantha" differences between the two systems, apart the game system. And this make me ask another question: are the Glorantha depicted by RQG and the Glorantha depicted by HQG really the same? Thanks
  7. Why Discord and not Zoom to chat (or vice versa) ? Discord to write and zoom to talk? Thanks.
  8. I'd like to use some virtual tabletop to starting play RQ:G. What do you use? RollD20? Are there around some resources? I have seen there is a very good character set for RQ:G but I can't find it. Sorry but I'm newbie to RollD20 (and to RQ:G too, being expert on Glorantha will be much more difficult I thnk) Thank you very much.

    What is canon?

    I have not well understood this. Writing them in HQG to use them in RQG?

    What is canon?

    I think that when I feel ready I'll use standard RQG setting, Dragon Pass. I have read HQG, RQG and I'm approaching the wonderful Glorantha Sourcebook, RQ monster and RQ GM pack. I'll stick to the RQ system, but I liked much the HQ material I have read.

    What is canon?

    Che reason I asked what is canon was only to narrow the huge amount of published materials to study/obtain. It is obvious that YGWV and that any real campaign not run by Jeff is "not canon".
  12. I'm newbie to Glorantha, having only about one and a half year of occasional study of this wonderful world. I have a question arised since the start of Runequest Glorantha reading. In RQG you can play a Sartarite, a Tarshite, a Lunar, a Praxian etc, different cultures in and around Dragon Pass and Prax. But players from Hendrikland / Heortland have been left out. They are culturally very similar to Sartarite, and are dwelling between Sartar and Prax. In what they differ from Sartarite culture? And why they have been left out? Thanks
  13. Is one year since I started to study Glorantha. There is so much material, even from older RQ editions. I have seen somewhere that some RQ3 materiale is "not canon". Glorantha is so huge that I'd like to stick to canon material. I'm curious to know what is considered canon and what not, Thanks.
  14. I can foresee the great quality of the Glorantha world from the quality of the Glorantha forum contributors.
  15. To tell you the truth I never played narrative based RPG like RQ, and it is possible I like them, I don't know. When I quitted gaming they were at the very start. Maybe it will be a pleasant discovery.
  16. Yes but now I'm more interested in the world from a literary / scholar point of view, I don't know if I will ever be able to set up a table, but I love well detailed, realistic and original fantasy worlds.
  17. Are you trying to scare me? ;)
  18. So no RQG to start? What is 13th age Glorantha? The various RQ have the same or different geographic/age settings? And the various HQ? Does have any sense to study the older RQ or HQ manuals? Thanks
  19. I do not know if I will able to start to master a Glorantha game, I quitted mastering about 20 years ago and the ex-players are on real life issues. But I encountered the game Dragon Pass some years ago, and discovered Glorantha. I do not know it well yet but have the strong impression that is perhaps one of the more beatiful and realistic fantasy world ever created. And, more important for me, it is a work of love. So I'd like to start to study it. I'm starting to obtain the material, so I ask you: where to start? Runequest Roleplaying in Glorantha? Heroquest Glorantha? Glorantha
