    Hello, gmt 6 works for me.
    As a kid and teenager I played alot if Dungeons and Dragons into the 90's. In the mid to late 90's I stopped playing, but I had asked a cousin of mine who was going to MIT if he ever played D&D anymore and he told me he was playing a game called Nephilim and told me a bit about it and I found it very curious so I bought the core rule book and over the next few years bought all of the rest of the books but could never find anyone to play and could find no information on it as it was over a decade old by then. I was quite fascinated by the mythology though and read all the books and really liked the concept. I never did play that game (although I would like to someday.) about 25 years after I quit D&D a friend randomly asked me if I wanted to play, and I did (5e) and I really enjoyed it. That was about 4 years ago, and a couple of years ago I looked up, "Mythological Tabletop Roleplaying Games" and Runquest was the first thing that came up and I realized, Chaosium was the perfect company to cater to my tastes and love of mythology.

    Flash forward until 2017, Dungeons and Dragons kind of feel back into my life in an unexpected and very welcome way as it was a great social outlet and set my imagination soaring, but I also wanted to incorporate mythological concepts and experimental ideas as well as terrain crafting and design, and wanted to Branch out and learn about other RPG's and only last well recommended my copy of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, and I am floored. It appears to be exactly what I have been searching for. Something more deeply archetypal and Mythological so I can really take things to Epic proportions. I am only just beginning and am so grateful to Chaosium, because even though I haven't even played any of the games yet, I find although I grew up with Dungeons and Dragons, Chaosium is what I have been searching for all these years that came really take things to the next level (assuming I might find people to play.)

  1. Guess I don't know how to erase a post.
  2. I actually got invited into a Runequest game already and should have erased my OP. Thank you for the offer though.
  3. Good point: Mountain Daylight Time Wednesday, July 14, 2021, 11:53 PM
  4. Perfect! Thanks Bill the Barbarian. If you want, I'm sure I could find some other players if you can't find anybody. Just for a heads up, I have games on Friday and Sunday nights, other than that, I'm very flexible.

    Please disregard this post, I found a game. Thank you.
  6. I really dropped the ball in this thread and didn't realize I got so many replies, and Then I was overwhelmed and not sure how to respond to them all. You guys definitely have allot of compelling ideas & thoughts and I'll try to respond to some of them individually. Thank you and sorry for not following up alot sooner.

  8. I know in another post the moderators confirmed that they were having trouble getting Runequest up on Roll20, something about the Roll20 staff being really busy and haven't been able to do it yet, or something along those lines. What I'm wondering is with the starter set coming out is there any plans to get it up on Roll20? It would certainly help boost it's promotion and sale. Just wondering, thank you. The Starter Set looks beautiful.
  9. Apologies for never responding to anybody's comments. I wasn't expecting this post to explode like it did, and I am grateful, there was just so much to respond to I told myself I would, "Get to it later" and didn't, until now. I am not going to respond to all the comments but I do want to say that there is a ton of thought provoking stuff for me to work through and I will try to address some individual comments sometime. What I am really excited to announce, is that I have finally got a gaming group together to play my Chaosium games (starting off with Runequest.) The thing is, I have been wanting to get a group like this together for a long time, I just had to find the right people, and none of us have ever played any Chaosium games, but last week we had our first session with, "The Broken Tower" so we all still have alot of rules to figure out, but when we do we will go on to Call of Cthulhu, and others from there, and when I feel confident in my ability, and loosely putting together a campaign, I am finally going to play Nephilim, and when I do I will update you on how it goes. Anyway, just wanted to thank you all for your responses, and criticisms too as perhaps it will help me avoid some pitfalls. Cheers! Zulfikar Zaban
  10. I'm not looking to buy them, but I would like to see the covers and the years released. Kind of a retrospective catalog. I know it's perhaps superfluous, but I am just curious of the history.
  11. To whom it may concern, I was just searching around the Chaosium website, looking for old, out of print Chaosium games. I know there are several titles like Ringworld, Elfquest, Stormbringer. I just wish there was some kind of record on there, for posterity, and for my undying curiosity. Anyway, just a recommendation. Thank you Chaosium, I love what you do, Zulfikar Zaban
  12. Hello friends, I am just curious, Call of Cthulhu has packages on Roll20, will Runequest be doing any of their modules on Roll20?
