    Cattle raids

    There is a quite good presentation of cattle raids, their customs and obligations and so forth in HQ The Coming Storm (vol. 2: Eleven Lights). But basically, yes, as said above, the rule is to ask the clan chief permission. Then, that's what crawlers do... 😉
  2. Funny too: I used Storm Tribe (and Thunder Rebels) to prepare this campaign, and for the rules, I'm running a mix between HW et HQ rules... In other words, you unmasked me!!!! 😋
  3. I'm running The Coming Storm HQ campaign, and one of my players chose the "full text writing creation" and created a valindir... Indeed, such a character isn't thought highly of in Red Cow Clan, and when the Great Winter will come, he certainly will have big problems (a lynch mob...). Then, his background is also certainly the most creative of all the party: he's some kind of a village idiot (a handsome and strong one, but yes, a village idiot) in Red Cow Fort, a stickpicker, and there was some really good prophecy dedicated to Valind in his background, with strong links with the clan and the
  4. And Ernalda procession (no wedding without her, and apparently without booze...) :
  5. Both (the wedding, and the feast) are from La privée des hommes aux temps des vikings (Private Life of Humans in Viking Ages), a great collection when I was a kid (1970s/1980s). The artist is Pierre Joubert.
  6. Just for illustration (add a bit of minoian culture...) :
  7. TOPIC SOLVED!!! Thanks to Chaosium team quick answer and advises! I'm probably going to make my order tomorrow... and wait for UK warehouse exclusive products to ship to France again... 😉
  8. Hi! Don't really know where to post this, and I'm not sure my mail worked on Chaosium's website... So, I wanted to make an order yesterday to take advantage of Chaosium's great promotions (Blood Tide, The Magic Book, In Search of the Trollslayer and several Cthulhu classic scenarios I don't have yet in my collection...). When I wanted to finalize and pay my order, I saw an alert saying "one or more articles of your cart can't be shipped to your current address (in France). Please register another address of destination". Not exactly the same words (and certainly in a much better english),
  9. Don't know much the Shadow (unfortunately never been published in France, we just know the movie), but for the Phantom (many french-translated comics...) I remember he mainly uses his two guns (maybe he shouldn't have any malus when using both of them at the same time? or allow him twice attacks/turn?). Can't remember seeing him with a sword, but frequently with "tribal" weapons (bow, spear...). And since he's been partly educated by the Bandars, I'm sure he knows something about poisons and darts...
  10. And what about sidekicks? Henry Jones for Indiana, bandar tribesmen (and Guran!)/Heroe/Satan for The Phantom, and so forth?...
  11. And heraldry also uses sirens, wolves, snakes, griffins, dragons... Specialists (dungeoneers?) are still looking for shields with painted kobolds, goblins and trolls.
  12. May the Stars be right!!!! Happy new years all of you. Just a french (frenglish?) joke: "Knock-knock! - Who's that? - Lapinou! - Lapinou who? - Lapinou year!" (in french, "lapinou" stands for "bunny"). Sorry. Wish you'll have better ones this year. Shouldn't be difficult.
  13. Sorry, but you're wrong. In ancient charts : West = Hic sunt monstrorum East = Hic sunt draconis South = Hic sunt leones (for Middle-Ages christians, lions were devil-creatures) North = no specific latin sentence. No need. No one would dare.
  14. Never played Superworld. But here in France, Nephilim is some kind of a cult-game. I played a long long campaign several years ago, and had very great time! Even the longer character creation ever seen (and still great!).
  15. I began mastering The Dark Eye for my 8 years-old son during the first containment here in France. We didn't stop... Now I'd like to run someting else for him, but with another player (his sister is only 3 years old). I'm tryng to pressure my wife, but her previous experiences (Conan RPG, C.O.P.S.) didn't convince her...
  16. Telmoris' instant favorite: hot blood from their agonizing victim. A must with such mugs!!!
  17. ...Looking back in the book, I see what I missed... 🙃
  18. I failed my library check! Need help! In Miskatonic University, p197: Then I can't find these "possible answers"!!! There are a few things about the Exhibit Museum the witch cult may be aware/afraid of (the mummy, Lucas Tetlow...), but nothing about the Orne Library. Or does this mean the witch cult is aware of Armitage Cabal? With its incredible powers, I don't think it frightens much the witch? I probably missed something, so if anyone has an answer or a clue?... Thanks!
  19. I'm realizing I never reported the 2nd session... 😳 SPOILER ALERT: As I said previously, this 2nd session was dedicated to a heroquest to renew the bond between Wandle and the Red Cow Clan... Even my RQ-vets players had never perform any heroquest before... I freely adapted In Troubled Waters (from River of Cradles). To put it in a few words, no one knows Wandle original name, and the party had to rename her again, as did the clan's founder. First, they had to free the river from an ancient taint: a priest of Pocharngo was polluting the river with gorps!!! (see River of Cradles). After re
  20. Hi Ian, Much love it! Unfortunately, we are back in containment here in France... After planning it with my party, we all agreed to run it IRL, not online... We are waiting the containment's ending to go back on the Coming Storm. Hope this will be wery soon!!! I size this opportunity to thank you for this great campaign. I enjoyed it on every stage: great reading (I'm a book-addict, reading basically 2 or 3 books a week...), great time to prepare it and great pleasure to run it!!! I'm a long-time HW player, and I had never take the plunge to tun HW/HQ before. The Coming Storm decided
  21. Thanks also Traquilitas Ordinis! Great ideas here...
  22. Thanks !! EDIT : can't find it in the Cult of Chaos Library ? Does one of you guys remember the link?...
  23. Hi all! Here (in France), we're still in containment (softer than the first, but my local gaming club won't reopen until january or february I'm afraid). So I suspended my Coming Storm campaign and ran a few CoC scenarios. Now I'm planning (my players asked for it!!) a MU student local campaign. They'll of course begin as 1st year students. Do you know any introductory scenario for 1st year students? Otherwise I thought about some non-mythos mystery for the first session (maybe just a maniac on the campus?...). Il precise I still own of course Arkham Unveiled and Miskatonic University, and sev
  24. Didn't know this one, thanks! I think I'll try it on the next explosive throwing, and so I'll keep my direction roll for success and failure, as required (I still like the possibility of smokescreen effect...). 😊
  25. Yeah, throwing anything is easy, but as for shooting, hitting the target is hard... 😊 Where the grenade is landing ? For this kind of situation, I have a 8-sided die with cardinal points (N, E, W, S, SW, SE, NE, NW) (bought it at my local RPG shop). Of course, I consider that even on a failure the thrower is unlikely to throw the grenade behind him, at the opposit of his target... So, let's say the target is north of the thrower: if it's rolling N, NW or NE, the grenade will land beyond the target (at the opposit of the thrower). No particular effect. if it's rolling E or W, i
