    As a GM I wouldn't want my players to build up a reserve of Rightness or to gain any advantage if they did. Always being one failure away from being shunned by society, and the invisible one, fits the vision of Malkioni society I've built up over the years. Getting a free pass to break a taboo because you're got a couple points stored wouldn't. Maybe if you violate a taboo you should go straight to zero no matter how righteous you are. Or maybe players shouldn't know, and have no way of guessing, what their Rightness score is. But lots of play testing will be required to iron out the det
  2. I can't believe in never did the math😕
  3. Horal (and Talar and Dronar) might not be dead.
  4. Western cultures have a long history of turning a blind eye to what the lower castes do, as long as they're not breaking any taboos and fulfilling their duties.
  5. Humor for Talor and Flamesword for Gerlant. I least I think so. Can't imagine who else they'd be for. I see your point about See Rune Magic. It's not like someone couldn't just create it if they thought it would come handy too.
  6. --SPOILER -- Its Arkati magic. Anyone that has access to that spell in an orthodox western church isn't likely to share that they know it. There are a couple rune spells in RBM that come from western heroes too. I figure western warriors, and maybe others, will have access to limited rune magic.
  7. I loved what I saw. Thanks for doing this, again! Looking forward to the products that are in progress. Some talk about the Malkioni was nice too.
  8. Well, the thing is, I could never equate the rationalist Gloranthan West with medieval Europe. So everything between Genertela: Crucible of the Hero Wars and the Guide, about the West, holds little interest for me. I've read a fair bit of it. I didn't see anything that inspired me.
  9. Good stuff, even though I'm partial to playing Malkioni. I do like the way RQG requires you to integrate into your local, Gloranthan, environment. And, yeah if you're players aren't into it they should do something else. It would be nice to see what else is going on in the rest of the world, and get to run some campaigns and characters, from the East, West & South, before Dragon Pass' history is spelled out in great detail to 1640. That and I want to see if my old Fronela campaign ends up being even a little close to whatever ends up being official.
  10. I've wondered if it would turn up too.
  11. On page 16 of the guide it says enchanted iron's magic dampening effect is ameliorated for a specific person that the item was enchanted for, and them alone. For an player of RQ2 and RQ3 that was quite a surprise, but I've seen no sign of that being applied in the RQG rules. What happened?
  12. Having to become, at least a little, chaotic to do it is the rub. It'll keep the players guessing.
  13. Dilis. That's exactly where he'd be. If you master the chaos rune you get a chaos taint: page 383 of Roleplaying in Glorantha. So if you can directly tap chaos you're already tainted. I want the chaos things he taps to die in some icky fashion too. He's an NPC so I can hand wave the actual mechanism of what he's doing when melts or turns a broo to dust. My guy would be a Borist too. I guess I have a darker view of them, YGMV.
  14. I'd like to hear people's ideas about using tap spells on chaotic things. Does the sorcerer become tainted if they steal air or tap the body of a chaos thing? Mostly I'm interested in what happens if a tainted sorcerer, that's mastered the chaos rune, taps chaos directly? Can they just consume a gorp, broo or whatever? Can they tap chaos sites? I'm pondering a potential NPC that characters might make a devils bargain with. How bad can he be, he eats chaos...
