  1. I was hoping to find a convenient document that listed what each official (old and New) adventure was by name and what themes they included. Since there isn't one that already exists I started a Spreadsheet. Please add to it if you have read or run any of the adventures. Thanks. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DX7MRPvISwrrcOkzSbmK3oHqouMmZA1rcFCcyj-FhqA/edit?usp=sharing
  2. Ya, I was thinking about doing the same. Its one of the suggests in the adventure, actually.
  3. Thanks you for the suggestions. Much appreciated!
  4. I've been thinking about converting the of Avalon hill shadows on the borderland adventure, Gaumata's Vision, over to Runequest: role-playing in Glorantha. One aspect of this conversation would be moving out to an area in the region near apply lane. Any suggests or tips? I haven't tried converting any of the older stuff before. Plus, I'm sure everyone on here who had run it before have all kinds of advice and suggests.
  5. Refine Medicine Can we get more clarity with the Spell. pg 71 First the Spell description says that it can be cast to alter either the potency or usefulness of a plant on the “Other” category of the healing plants list. But then the example on pg 72 as part of the Healing Plant list, shows Muricane Ninefinger using it on a plant part that is outside of the Other Catagory previously spoken of. Then there is the question of whether or not any plant that is not of the "Other" group, like seeds, stem, flowers, etc can still be used to heal people without the need of a Rune spell lik
  6. Now if you want to continue with that idea as a story aspect of your own game - that's fine. I don't mind that. I think that it can create something very actionable for the PCs to do. I just wouldn't suggest that it was something actually true for the hamlet in general. I like the idea that Apple Lane has lost a lot of the wealth it once had prier to the Lunar occupancy. Maybe the Lunars corrupted the water in the region or corrupted the source of the water in the region and now its no longer sustaining the orchards. This gives the PC something they can tackle and change for the betterment
  7. The Orchards are not on the map either neither are any of the underground water sources that might be feeding the well. Personally, in any game system/setting - I general use common sense instead of expecting every answer to be on the map or in the book. I think you're worrying about nothing. It would be one thing if any of sources said that it was a Dry region with very little water, but as far as I know none of them state this. Apple Lane, iirc, was quite wealthy before the Lunar occupation because of these apple orchards. So, to suggest that they don't have nearby water sources, seems to ki
  8. Actually, you are correct. There is a well on the map.
  9. I didn't see anything that would suggest that there wasn't a stream or natural reservoir of ground water in the area -especially with there being 200-300 acres of Orchards. That many ares of trees would suggest that there is an ample supply of water in the area - otherwise you would have issue growing some many apple trees. Iirc, Apple Trees require a lot of water. Though The temple of Uleria could be built on a natural hot spring - that would be a good idea and one I think I'll be including into my game for sure.
  10. Just wanted to update everyone who might find this post helpful or is following this thread. Here is some of the stuff that I have added to the Apple Lane setting. The Rotroot family is one of the Tenant farmers who manage one of the hides of land owned by the Thane of Apple Lane. I see them as Conniving hillbilly types. But I have them taking a portion of their share of the Harvest and turning them into Picked, fermented Apple Slice. Which are stored in sealed Earthenware jars and placed in a root cellar. I gave Aileena the Manage Household skill since she needs to be able to man
  11. Thats fun. Current, Gooseberry is the character my party is interacting with at the moment. They hard a rumor from him that Lunars were spotted robbing a Grave Mound and the party is using him as a guide to find that location. So I am seeding these characters in slowly for sure. They only had some minor interactions so far with Brightflowwer and Aleenia and the Horsemaster - whose name I can't think of at the moment. As a side note: I see Gooseberrry Sprig as being played by Steve Buscemi
  12. I never heard of Drama System, I'll have to take a look at it. I haven't watched many shows that are about village life, but I can see what you are talking about. I'll probably pull some reference from Lark Rise to Candleford. But I think some of what you are saying is helpful. Its possible I might spread myself to thin with them interacting with too many villagers at first. Thanks for the advice!
  13. Being new to Runequest, I decided to start my group off in Apple Lane and I am nearing then end of the first three main adventures that take place in the Gamemaster's Adventure book. One of the unique aspect of Runequest: Glorantha is that the players are not free booting adventurers, exploring the world and collecting money and enemies as they go. Instead they are members of an active community and this is where I run into some trouble at times. I have very little experience as a player or Gamemaster in this type of roleplaying game. So my question here comes in two parts.
  14. Excellent, thank you for your help.
