    All about Tricksters

    I think the same list can be found the Eurmal cult writ-up in Sartar Companion. I think I can guess what sprites, and gremlins but gobblers? Do they eat everything they see or something? -- Turns out I remembered wrong. I looked up the cult write-up in the Sartar Companion and noticed that Tricksters do get examples for rune powers. It's the subcults that are one per shrine (although they're treated a bit differently than other cult's subcults, I think I remember other cults only allowing one sub-cult per person, tricksters don't have that limit). It's Devotees that are realy different. There I found Killer Boy, Dead Eye, Downboy and Hisfault. (For some reason tricksters don't have Hero Forms just prescribed roles?) I feel a bit silly now. Oops.
  2. Something like than would be really useful and greatly open up the possibilities of playing as something more than the Orlanthi. I think the really time consuming and difficult part would be creating the actual questionnaires themselves though, not the online pages (not that I'd know, my ability at programming is pretty pathetic, that is to say nonexistent.) Yeah, that too, Secret Society questionnaires and the like are also a great idea. No need to limit yourself to clans and families.

    Yeah, we have diverged from the thread tittle a bit much. Several of the resent posts, while interesting, would belong better under an 'All abot Runes' thread. So , in order to bring us back to topic. You've mentioed to varations on tricksters (as well as other trickstercults beside Eurmal). Killer Boy the Destroyer Eurmal Friend of Men As for cults ( I might have forgotten one or two, I don't have the time to check currently): Raven Hyena and Eurmal himself What other variations of tricksters and what other cults exist. Also, creating a killer boy sounds dangerous and like it would use up your trickster. Isn't that a really drastic step to take? Furthermore, we've only talked about Human (and Broo) tricksters. Don't the Elder Races have any? edit: I almost forgot, what is it a trickster can do? Is it really anything goes? The only concrete examples I can think of that i know of is: (incorrect I got it messed up in my memory.) Transforming into a more perfect horse than is possible (even though you're just wearing a cheap disguice like the one in King of Dragon Pass). Eating things larger than yourself (potentially out-eating a troll). Pushing yourself through a tiny hole one (literally) disconected finger, nose and other body part at a time.

    So runes work differently depending on how they're used, only most runescan only be used in one way? Mind explaining the differences between an Elemental, Condition, Form and Power Runes and how they work differently? Actually, while we're still talking about runes and not about tricksters (maybe chaos cultis stricksters to at least stay close to topic) mind telling me if you can have the Magic or Infinity Rune as a rune and what ou ccan do with them?

    Hunger/Undeath? I though it was only called the Undeath Rune. Actually, could someone explain the Chaos and Hunger Undeath/Runes, being born with them and initiated into them? Are any of those counted as elemental runes? (Because if they are I suddenly have the urge to someday use a trickster with the Chaos Rune as an elemental rune.) I think the problem stem from Sedenya's conflict with Orlanth (and the Orlanthi's conflict with the Lunar Empire). What was the Dragon Dream? I've heard it referenced a few times but have (almost) no idea what it actually was or did. That sounds ... dangerous, and worrisome. I remeber that the Moon Rune can be converted into the Chaos Rune. Also, how isthe Moon Rune associated with being more magical? What about the Magic Rune?
  6. Ooh, most of that I didn't expect. I figured that it could be used to resit harm or being moved, and possibly to keep a society stable (kind of like a low grade harmony rune) but of the ones above I would only have thought of preserving things. Thanks.
  7. Actually, one rune that seem to be associated rather closely with the Sun/Sky Rune is the Stasis Rune but what can you actually do with it? Since it is a rune that is apparently non-existent among the Orlanthi (and there defenitely aren't any Orlanthi gods with the Stasis Rune that I know of) tyhe HeroQuest Glorantha book is also completely uninterested in that particular rune. Something that poses a problem due to the systems buld-it-yourself nature when it comes to magic.

    No special mention for the Moon Rune? I remember the Orlanthi beeing especialy hostile to that one (and then of course there's the Chaos Rune). Actually speaking of unusual or weid runic ties (for the Orlanthi) what if a child was born to an Orlanthi family with really strong ties to the Fire/Sky Rune, the Stasis Rune and the Mastery Rune and was brought to the family by Solar spirits or lesser gods or somethoing equivalent? (Yes, I assume this would be quitre absurd but absurd senarios tickle my interest sometimes.) Anyway, speaking of tricksters. I don't consider tricksters to be pranksters (thats just silly) but I also don't consider trickstes to be some kind of completely insane humanoid natural disasters (be the scale large or miniscule) totally lacking in impulse control (thats equally silly). The're rules breakers, yes, but they're not required to be selfish or fail to understand the consequenses of their actions. Sometimes they're a bit too clever for their pown good and get a bit to fixated on that great joke or trick they've come up with and sometimes they just want to give all those dried up crummudgeons (read: everyone else that's not a tickster) smf good shake but that doesn't meanthey have to be predisposed to be nasty or untrustyworthy. In a way they're more true rebels than the Orlanthi. Or even have to cause trouble with their antics (unless they mean to). Its more like they have discovered that the world is one huge joke that no one else has got yet and feel less inclined to take it as seriously as everyone else. That said, sure, some may have a bit of impulse controll problem, thats fine. But it shouldn't be an obligatory part of their core character.

    That begs the question. What bird has the strongest Sky connection (and what would happen if one inexplicably carried a newborn to an Orlanthi family)? Also, why must a trickster lack controll of themselves? I find that more than a little wierd.

    Wouldn't an Orlanthi getting a child from a bird have reason to consider the child cursed?

    Just now I'm imagining a Shovel Broo bursting out of someones shovel, while the're using it. Now there's a cause for a heart attack.

    Could you explain that? Yes, I think I would. It's just that I can't help but feel like that temple is a plot hook wating to happen. A (potentially, I still prefer a more positive slant on tricksters) very volatile one at that. Actually, mentioning this. Who does that actually happen. I get the impression those raids aren't like normal HeroQests. Interesting times, obviously. Let's go do it (you go first). I have to ask. How? ( I mean, I undertstand why. If nandan couldn't bear children the cult of Ernalda and similar ciults would have a really obvious glass cieling for every nandan alive so that's not my question. Just, how does it work?) Now I have to as what the Mad Sultanate is. A broo trickster must be someome who doesn't impregnate animals or spread disease. They probably impregnate objects instead and cure people from diseases while having them remain carriers of said disease. They (sometime) probably look like normal people too.
  13. Now I have to ask what thos 'heart and eyes' is?

    That does sound like something enough tricksters should be able to acomplish. Although I assume this was far more than mere trickster magic. Kill as in captital k kill? Is Amuron something similar to the Horned Man, who I belive os strongly conected to the Spirit rune? And who many of those claim that its everyone else that's insane? Can you (or anyone) expand on that? All this makes it seem like Pamaltela is much less tumultous place. Am I wrong? Also, could someone tell me more about Nandan? The HeroQuest books basically only say 'oh yeah Nandan exist, lets talk more about Vinga'. Not that I mind in particular that they explain Vinga but the information on Nandan is ... scarce to say the least. Wait. The Trickster Temple is still there? So they basically managed to make every trickster more powerful? Why do trickster have the whole may only learn spells at hrines and only one spell per shrine thing? Is there anyone else who can bind any kind of trickster like that (and what does it exactly mean, it sound like more than just a formality)? I see. Yes, Akat's whole cult changing shenanigan is a bit a lot wierd but he doesn't feel like your typical trickster.
  15. Ouch. One way way to get over all the problems in the questionares would be to see if there's more people that tried to creat clan questionares (or why limit yourself to clans, I doupt all cultures organize themselves in clans the same way, or at all. In the end you'd probably end up with something resembling clan/family/house creation questionares). That sounds like a massive undertanking if you want to be throughout and would probably benefit greatly from getting more people involved. (Of course, it also sounds time consuming, I know I don't have the time or knowledge nessecary for that or I would have tred at home already.)
