  1. Hello all, I'm curently working on a scenario involving a lesser hydra and I can't find any explanation about how the acids work. Did I miss something? Thanks !
  2. This is NOT a post critical of the supplement. In most respects, I love it... a great world to plunder, the stunts system is genius and Voudou is a great magic system ripe for some rich roleplaying rather than the usual flash-bang effects. But as I run it for my group I am finding numerous issues, typos and stuff just plain missing from the rules. i.e. at a "rules on paper" level it is far from perfect! Some endemic "typo like" issues are in there which I can ignore: The author indicated that it was a mash up of 2 background - one magical, one historical and it shows periodically. S
  3. Can a cultist or other permanently insane character suffer from bouts of madness by seeing Mythos creatures? And what would happen if a PC cast Mindblast (which causes temporary insanity) at a cultist?
  4. Seth Skorkowsky, in one of his videos, clearly states that "killing a Mythos monster rewards sanity back at the same amount that it was lost". He gave the example of a ghoul, which according to him awards the investigators 1d6 sanity once killed. I checked the rules myself, and could not find any rule of the sort in the rulebook. At most I found this passage: However, there is nothing in the book stating that killing Mythos monsters always give sanity back at the same rate it is lost - in any case, such awards should be given only at the end of the adventure. For published adventur
  5. The spell Cause Blindness doesn't seem to have a range. Am I right to assume the range to be infinite?
  6. Good evening folks, just came back from a fun session of Runequest. I have a few rule questions for the collective: *The Sleep spell, does it affect vampires, or zombies for that matter? (Checking the Bestiary, we couldn't find evidence either way) *Attack skills over 100%, does Attacker they keep their critical and special percentages based on their skill that's over 100%? Example, if i have attack at 150%, even though i go down to 100% attack, then minus 50% from my opponents parry, does does my critical stay at 8% and special at 30%, which are based on my 150%? (The page
  7. The rules state, p. 190 : "The summoning must take place at least in Narrative time, and the creature will stay on the mundane plane for a period determined by normal Conflict rules." What do you mean ? How do the "normal Conflict rules" determine the period ?
  8. Hi all: First off, I want to say I hadn't played CoC since 4th edition and I've been so impressed with the quality of 7th edition products. Having said that, I have some questions. I'm looking at bringing new players into the game. As I look at the 7th edition rules, I see lots of places where I will need to be a 'rules apologist' during character creation. Or I see places where I will need to explain counter-intuitive or overly-complex items to the players. I think that starts the experience of playing CoC off on a sour note. So I'm asking these questions because I'm thinking of
  9. I'd like to develop some rules for Mass Combat and Battles. I love the RQ6/Mythras mechanics about this issue, but I rule a classic dungeon campaign with a lighter system (between BRP and the MRQ SRD) and I need some ideas. OpenQuest contains a few elegant rules, but they are in the opposite side, too simple for my campaign. Do you know a d100 mass combat system in the happy medium, lighter than Mythras but more complete than Openquest? I have read something about MRQII Empires, but I haven´t that book and I don't know if it could be bought nowdays, or if it could be worthy for this purpo
  10. The question may already have been addressed somewhere else, I'm sorry if it is the case. The rules for augments on page 2 are not the same as later for Runes and Passions, although it is said on page 2 that "Where appropriate, abilities—whether Runes, skills, or passions— may be combined to augment one another". Page 2: • Failure: Subtract –20% from the desired ability. • Fumble: Subtract –50% from the desired ability. Page 8 & 10 • Failure: Subtract –10% from all rolls using that Rune/passion etc. • Fumble: Immediately lose –1D10% from the Rune/passion etc.

  12. Please tell me if I understood well: Improving means augmenting the power attributes except duration, even if the attributes are not manipulate Extending means augmenting the effect duration If I want to only improve a power, I need to win a Conflict vs. value If I want to only extend a power, I just need to pre-activate it and multiply the cost (Life Points or whatever the system requires) by the Time Scale. When extending + improving, only a conflict (improvement with possible consequences) is required with the value multiplied by the time scale. No pre-activation is
  13. Some more clarifications on the magic systems. Divine magic: Only a single combat action (so movement and reaction are available) Text: "Divine Magic spells always take only a single combat Action to cast and takes place on the INT order of the character casting the spell." Why does divine magic say "single combat action" ? When can you have two combat actions ? Does it mean when a skill is >100% and you split it to 2+ attacks ? Also some Battle magic spells have the "ranged" trait. The description does not say anything that helps on range so the default range of
  14. Not that this would come up often, but how do most handle "critical" success odds for Renaissance and compatible rule systems? The rules (paraphrased) spell out that the critical chance is 10% of the character's skill. However, modifiers can alter a character's skill, taking the rules ultra-literally, a modifier would not affect the percentage for a critical. But as a matter of preference, do those who play/GM these rules calculate the chance of a critical based on the modified skills (regardless of whether the modifier is a penalty or bonus), or do you generally keep the critical od

    Powers with the Overcome Attribute: the caster must start a Conflict matching his WIL vs. characteristic as stated in the power description. - Can the target roll for effect ? - are other Traits usable for support beads ?
  16. Hi all, I'm reading through the Runequest Classic Edition rules with plans to run it at our new RPG club this fall. Overall, the rules are written quite clearly. However, I do have some questions about the first few chapters, mostly to do with parrying. 1) If the defender parries successfully and the attacker fails the attack roll, is the damage suffered by the attacker's weapon based on the attacker's damage roll? Or does the defender roll damage as if they struck? 2) The Two Weapon Use section says an adventurer using two weapons can make 2 attacks, 2 parries, or 1 attack and

    Strain (SN)

    So after some play testing, I decided to change Strain (SN) from a number like hit points, to something that you would roll against. It is still made up of CON + PER, but this is now averaged to get a SN number. Each character will have 4 small boxes next to the SN number, for x4, x3, x2, and x1. Certain spells, using a number of MP over a certain threshold, and being wounded cause Strain rolls. If you fail the x4, you must roll in each subsequent round AND OR each subsequent time a SN roll is called for at the x3... and if that is failed at x2 and finally x1. Once a x1 roll is failed, t
  18. I'm new to RuneQuest Classic and I have questions and or commentary regarding the rules. Question 1: Page 28 says that weapons takes damage when are used to parry a successful attack. This rule applies to successfull parry only, right? (In a failed parry the defender takes all damage) Queation 2: If you successfully parry a successful attack done with a short stabbing or Long-hafted weapon how you calculate how much damage is transferred to the defender? (Those type of weapons do not damage other weapons) Question 3: a critical with an impale weapon is both a critical a
  19. 1a. Are thrown weapons 1h or 2h or off hand? 1b. If 1h or 2h does that mean I would have to use 10ap to put away a sword and shield and then 5 to ready the thrown weapon (+3/sr to use) and then another 10 to re-quip a shield and sword 10,5,3,10 Or 1h main hand? 5,5,3,5 or am i not required to put away any weapons but just ready my throwning weapon 5,3 or are they considered to always be ready so it just cost me to put away and re-equip the other weapon? Or if they are off hand is it that i must choose between a shield or thrown weapon to have ready and pay ap when I choose to swap. O
  20. Over at d-Infinity.net I have written up the beginnings of Witchcraft and witches - a system of magic that is neither sorcery nor cultic in nature. Instead, witches make temporary pacts with eldritch entities such as spirit lords, Elemental Elders, even dragons, or demons, and gain magic from their pact of service or POWer. There are some ready advantages to having a witch PC in the group. Diverse magic, a charismatic face, and a constant source of quests (the witch's service) are among them. But there would also be a downside: Witchcraft probably threatens the fabric of Gloranthan cultur
  21. So I am getting pretty good with Magic World and have used it for a couple of genres now. However I am about to play a modern game and the question has come up about automatic weapons (M16, AK47, etc...). Does anyone have SIMPLE, EASY rules for firing guns that can shoot multiple shells per round? What do you guys recommend? I saw on the Internet that rules are apparently included in CoC but I don't have those books. Anybody? PS - The game we are about to play is styled after X-Files and uses the Alternity Dark Matter setting? Anyone here ever done an X-Files type game?
  22. What does Functionally Incapacitated mean exactly? How do i become no longer functionally incapacitated? I'm looking at page 20 in the rulebook, RQ Classic/RQ2, and it says i can no longer fight until healed, i'm in shock and i can heal myself. If i can heal myself what's the difference between casting a different spell than healing (maybe because i can't fight i cant attempt to overcome another's POW)? And how far do i need to be healed before i'm no longer functionally incapacitated? I'm curious to see what others do. I house rule the functionally incapacitated condition ends when
  23. Hi folks, I'm kind of back to the BRP familiy - I played a lot of Stormbringer and CoC back in the 80s/90s and kind of lost sight of the systems family ... I've been reading RQ/Mythras stuff for a while now to get back into it, but don't have the time (or the players) to really get into such an extensive rules set, so I thought I might give OpenQuest a spin. Did that a few days ago with the wonderful "Life & Death" setting and a one-shot adventure with the pregens it provides. The system worked pretty well for me, but one thing surprised me: Battle Magic seemed to be awfully powe
  24. Hi, I'm creating a new thread in order to not jeopardize the previous one with multiple questions. Let me know if I'm not following the forums rules and accept my apologies in advance. So I have a question about time to produce formula page 71 (hum, you can noticed I’m not able to progress very fast in my reading ): Time to produce = Object SIZ x TL / Manufactory output/hr First, I’m finding strange that the more the technology level is high, the more it will take time to produce. I would have expected the exact opposite. Mor over, if you consider also the Max productio
  25. Hi all, I have uploaded rules that tweak Deep Magic's spheres and glyphs and adds rules for specifying spell range, area of effect and duration as well as for affecting mass, affecting character condition and casting spells against multiple targets. For maximum benefit readers will want to purchase Chaosium's excellent Advanced Sorcery book. You can download the file at Please message me if you find typos or unclear rules.
