    Additional Sorcery Spells

    Much of this is a straight lift from the current Mythras sorcery rules.

    What online tabletop places support RQG?

    If you're only visiting Roll20 I'm not sure what its tracking, other than you're visiting Roll20.

    What online tabletop places support RQG?

    Wouldn't using a different browser do as much? Or if need be a new user account on your pc created just for roll20? Not difficult to create and once done extremely fast to switch to.

    Spirit Combat and Parrying

    The SEs is the point! Personally I've thought of doing this for general combat as well, it's how Call of Cthulhu runs combat. It would mean one side will always gain a SE as long as someone succeeds their roll. I would do it for speed, it's not realistic but it solves the "stand-off" problem when you have two skilled combatants attacking and parrying off each other with nothing happening.

    Spirit Combat and Parrying

    I have thought about making spirit combat use opposed rolls instead of differential, making a successful defence give a special effect.
  6. I'm looking for another player as a 4th spot, currently have 3 new players all late teens for the Mythic Britain adventure in the Waterlands supplement. Likely running every other Sunday, time around 5pm UTC. https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/6781457/runequest-mythras-looking-for-players-mythic-britain-the-great-mire
  7. "Arms and Equipment" for Mongoose RuneQuest II has a big section on ships including prices, the price scaling looks reasonably close to Mythras core.
  8. I have to echo Gryph and soltakss - I like this format for a supplement - it's building on an existing setting by presenting an unusual region in more detail, it's got region-specific encounters, natural and supernatural creatures, environmental hazards, colourful and important NPCs detailed, a short but varied adventure (travel, social interaction, a mystery, mayhem, the supernatural, an Old Man who may be Merlin or ... Tim) and enough additional adventure cameos to make a campaign of it. Another good 'un from Mark Shirley who also wrote Mythic Constantinople.

    Borderlands on Roll20 - Recruiting

    Despite not posting for quite a while I'm still running an irregular session of Mythras in Glorantha at 1700 UTC on Sundays. We're using an adapted version of the RQ2 Borderlands campaign. The group has recently lost a player so we have a potential spot for someone who is interested. No knowledge of Glorantha or of the system is required, just an interest. If you want an idea there is a campaign diary although now it's very much out of date: The Roll20 game: https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/101876/borderlands-rq6-slash-mythras-gloranthan-campaign
  10. It's not really set in The Fens, it's a bit further north around what is now the Humber river, (in 'fenlands') with York at the north. Now you would say it's the midlands and into the North of England around the Humber estuary, the campaign area does touch The Fens in the south but isn't actually set there. I'm reading through the supplement and love it so far, the only oddity to me is the description that the location is the east of England which I think of as East Anglia.

    How to Run Suppressing Fire

    In most circumstances any successful roll of your combat style using a firearm will also grant you a special effect, unless you are allowing the defender to Evade after the shot is taken, so that, yes, you would use Pin Down in this case. For your situation you might insist that the PC use full auto or at least Burst fire depending on how many bad guys there are, as it says they would have to make an Opposed Test against the combat style roll using their Willpower. As the rules say, they won't be able to fire back but can take any other action as long as they don't expose themselves.

    Does 'toon' mean rune?

    Borderlands on Roll20

    I don't have Beyond Pavis unfortunately, no idea where to get hold of it now, I do have most of the relevant Chaosium supplements and some of the Tradetalks. Mostly I am adapting existing material where I can so I have to invent as little as possible. I'll gladly accept your dungeon! ... and post here how it turns out...

    Borderlands on Roll20

    In the Tower's Tomb-trap... Things are looking down, Farangar stirs the graves of the undead, Chingua's swings into the group but goes badly wrong as he misses and lands prone, now he's on his back battling for his life. Farangar edges away, covered by his huge shield. Finally Bera, hanging on the end of a rope, shines a light into the tomb, so now they can at least see what a mess they're in. They do make it out and secure the tower. A few more days of travel takes them up the east side of the Zola Fel, up to the camp at the North Bog. Pharzeela's Red Pox disease gets treated by Varna's (the Duke's wife) personal physician.

    The sword on the Fenix Papers cover

    It's not really just the tip, it's a standard Sabre, Scimitar or Tulwar style sword. Mechanically I would use scimitar stats, no Impale. You would say these swords have an advantage to cause a bleed, but that's what having that combat effect means.
