  1. Hey there, A few months ago I heard on the KARTAS podcast that Ken Hite's own custom hellenistic 13th Age campaign featured only "in character" maps, i.e. either the players draw their own maps based on the GM's description of their travels (or what NPCs tell them), or, if they want to see some cool hand-outs, they need to go find some cartographer who has maps to sell (or steal). I thought that this is pretty cool -- it's kind of a shame to hold off on maps, because frankly everybody loves maps, especially Gloranthan maps which are often super cool, but on the other hand, this also makes maps even more special since players have to do some work before the GM lets them see any. So of course I figured "what if did that for my upcoming RQG campaign?". But first I have some questions: 1. Did anybody do that? (even if it's for other games) Any feedback? 2. What is, even, the general availability of maps in Glorantha? I assume that you probably find maps for sale at any good Lhankor Mhy temple, but where else? How expensive would they be? How common would they be? (for instance, there are probably maps in Boldhome's palace, but what about, say, Queen Leika's residence? Or Apple Lane's thane's house?) 3. How detailed would Gloranthan maps be? How far would they cover? For instance, would Queen Leika's maps feature landmarks in other tribes' territories? Would they have a lot of information on, say, Lunar Tarsh or Esrolia? Is Prax even accurately mapped out, or would it be mostly vague maps that convey the general knowledge that "it's a couple days' ride South from Pimper's Block to the Devil's Marsh"? Etc... Thanks!
  2. Hey there! I'm still slowly figuring out my plans for an upcoming RQG campaign -- most likely something around the Red Cow/11L campaign books but with some slightly modified Broken Tower and/or Cattle Raid thrown in at the beginning. One of the main concerns I have is the default "seasonal adventures" mode that RQG is modeled around. I know that, based on my player's knack for getting in unnecessary additional trouble, there are always loose ends after an adventure, regardless of how simple and straightforward it was. When you combine that with my GMing style, where I absolutely love exploring the consequences of the characters' actions, you end up with a lot of follow up adventures that pile up one after the other. So I'm wondering: - How incompatible that is with the default "seasonal adventures" assumption in the rulebook? For instance, you run Broken Tower and there's some loose ends about whether any NPC escaped back to the Greydog clan and what they will say or do. How do people deal with that? Do they resolve it only the next season, making that next season's adventure about the consequences? Or do they combine it with the next season's adventure? (it's a new storyline, but it factors in where the Greydogs are based on last season's actions) Or do they resolve it all in a summary/non-played way, like "so here's what's happening during the rest of the season" (with maybe a couple of broad skill rolls to figure out how things go, but without playing it per se as an adventure) and then it's all (mostly) wrapped up? - If I was to go with pseudo-real-time gameplay, what kind of problem would encounter? For instance, say I play a few adventures per season... it's not totally real-time because I would definitely ellipse a few days here or a week there for traveling back, resting, praying, training, talking to clan elders and waiting for them to deliberate, etc... but we might pop back into adventure mode for when the players want or are ordered to go spy on the Greydogs, or when some Greydogs messengers come in with a blood feud declaration or asking for reparations for the death of their members, or whatever, and then that might kickstart a related adventure right away because the players want to play through that themselves. One of the first problem I can think of is the replenishing of Rune Points, since you have to wait for a holy day for that. This means that, compared to a group that sticks to seasonal adventures, a group that does pseudo-real-time adventures can use less Rune Magic per encounters... but on the other hand, that might be pretty cool since (just as in the KoDP game) the players might figure that they have to wait until after this or that holy day to do a raid because they need Orlanth's favours or something. Did anybody do that? Or did anybody tweak Rune Magic grants to make it less hard on the players? Anything else besides Rune Magic that might be a problem with a pseudo-real-time campaign? Thoughts? Feedback from experience? All will be appreciated!
  3. Version 1.1.0

    Previous Versions 0.2b Updated to include better rune affiliations, cults, rune points, skills (including some corrections). Tried to get as much practical information on the front page while keeping the same general layout as before. 0.3b Updated to include combat skills, addition of shield to combat silhouette, adjusted passions to allow better usage, and some minor rearrangement. It should be pretty function at this point though you might need reading glasses. 0.70b This is probably about the best I can manage short of the final game. Added all known skills in list, adjusted font sizes and styles for readability (if over 45 you may still need glasses), updated layout, many minor tweaks. Two versions of this one with a splash of color and one solely in black and white. Final version until the release of the full game barring any glaring errors. 0.75b One more with some minor fixes discovered while using during play. Fixed track skill percent which was incorrect and too high. Changed Point to HP on listed weapons to avoid confusion based on new players feedback. Everything else is the same. 0.76b Fixed the glaring error of wrong hit location number for chest on the homunculus. 0.78b Added an approximation of the new RuneQuest logo and did some minor layout fixes Previous versions can be found here: https://basicroleplaying.org/files/file/581-runequest-roleplaying-in-glorantha-character-sheet/ Current 1.0 Updated to released version of RuneQuest. Contains three varieties, black & white, color, and textured. This version supersedes the previous ones above.
  4. I´m playing a Kolati shaman in the eleven lights campaign in RQ Rolelaying in Glorantha (a Free Adaptation from my GM) and I want to take the Spirit Affinity to bargain better with the Air Elementals, so I don't know which is the correct category for that kind of spirits: Main category which gives me a 10% in command and -10% to others to control my spirit or the minor category, which gives 20% and -20%? Thanks for your answers.

    These are my edited first two pages of Chaosium's elf Character Sheet for RuneQuest: Glorantha (RQG). These two pages should be sufficient for players who prefer to write their own backgrounds/biographies. I kept the overall look of the original sheet while shuffling things around and adding some things I thought were missing: Removed weapon category skills (only kept "natural weapons"), moved equipment to the first page, moved Rune Affinities and Passions to 2nd page, added 8 rune affinities (Chaos, Plant, Law, etc.) added "Original", "Current", and "Species Max" characteristic lines, added armor type/ENC/SIZ per location lines, added a move speed line, added blank lines (at least one) to most skill categories, including weapons and Sorcerous Magic, divided the long lines in equipment and spells sections, moved Mount/Ally section to 2nd page (from 3rd), added a "Race" line (replacing "Ransom", which was removed), added race-specific color and pretty pictures to the frame, and probably other minor things I forgot about.

  15. By a series of interesting chances, I'm going to end up running HQG for three people new to Glorantha this coming Sunday. I've given them some background to read and such not, and everyone seems pretty excited. They want to do a clan based political game, so, looks like they want to be the Clan Ring itself. I'm basing them in Sartar, right as the Lunars invade from the north. So there'll be ominous signs and such not, and then blame, invaders stepping all over your tula. Anything I should worry about or do special? It'll be the first time for me running it, though I'm not to worried, just a shift a bit in my mind towards these rules, but I've been reading them for a while now, and like what I've been seeing. Anything to be wary of? How much fun are we gonna have?
  16. Hi. In RQ Roleplaying in Glorantha, shamans of certain cults (Daka Fal, Waha) acts as priests of the cult. Does it means they have the benefits and obligations of a priest, like easy chance to increase Pow, more oportunitties to increease it and to recover rune magic.? Or is it only a social role in the community? Since is easier to became a shaman than to became a priest I think the correct answer is the second but I want to ask another people. Thanks for your answers.

    This is the freeform two-hour 13th Age Glorantha demo we ran at GenCon 2018. It's designed to keep the game fresh for GMs by making every session different, using the player characters' stories and uniques to shape the action instead of having a set adventure. Six third level pre-gen characters included. Works for longer sessions also.
  18. Hey folks, is there a listed collection of source material (bibliography) for the Gloranthian topics "Seas" and "Seafaring"? The sources could be canonical or non-canonical. Quite interesting for all GMs who like to plot some adventures regarding the Gloranthian seas. Thanks in advance!
  19. Iconic, the 13th Age podcast, looks at one of the new 13th Age Glorantha character classes, the Berserker. Glorantha fans, you can play a Storm Bull or a Zorak Zorani in this class! https://iconicpodcast.com/2018/08/27/s2-e11 And review 13th Age Glorantha itself here, in earlier episodes: Part One: https://iconicpodcast.com/2018/06/04/s2-e05 Part Two: https://iconicpodcast.com/2018/06/18/s2e06/ And talk to 13th Age and 13th Age Glorantha creators Rob and Jonathan: https://iconicpodcast.com/2018/04/09/s2-e01
  20. I'm going to be running a game set in Sartar/Dragon Pass soon. The PCs are going to be the young adult children of members of the clan ring/prominent thanes who get tasked by the ring to be kind of problem solvers in an attempt to make a name for themselves and make them worthy of inheriting their parents prominence.The way I'm currently thinking about doing prep is taking the Dragon Pass board game map (available via google image search), noting where the PCs clan tula is, figuring out where the other clans/tribes are, stocking some hexes they are likely to go through using the Ruins & Relics tables from the old Judges Guild Wilderlands products (ignoring the ones that aren't very Glorantha), and putting 5-10 ruins/dungeons for them to explore because both my group and I like dungeons. Then I would use a random hook generator I have to make up what problem the ring needs dealing with (or what problems they can pick from) in a given session. Does anyone have any advice for this sort of game? What are some things that can be interpreted as dungeons that exist in Dragon Pass/Sartar? What are the best things I can read in a short time to get my head around that area of Glorantha? What would be a good way to introduce my players to being Orlanthi?If it matters I am using OpenQuest with some stuff borrowed from RQ 6.

  22. Hi Chaosium, I'd like to know who is the artist of each piece in the rulebook. I can only recognise Andrey Fetisov, Michelle Lockamy, Mignola and Kalin Kadiev. Failing that, I'd like to know who is the artist who has done the art in page 136, 177, etc.
  23. Link to the Roll20 Posting The River Runs Red It is the Year 1622. Last year, the Lunar Empire killed the gods Orlanth and Ernalda. The Red Emperor declared a year of celebration as, at last, they had triumphed over their immortal enemies. The Great Winter swept across the land, starving many and forcing many others to resort to new allies and create new enemies. At the same time, a cradle carrying a giant's babe was carried down the Zola Fel river. Despite gold spent and life lost, the Lunar forces sent there were unable to defeat its defenders and seize the cradle. This is not to happen again. You are a group of Lunar settlers, granted a piece of land along the Cradle of Rivers. For some of you this may be a reward, for others a punishment. Whether you've been ordered, whether you're a slave or whether you're a freeman looking for a piece of land to call your own, you have what seems to be a simple task ahead of you: Make the river run red. What is this? This is a RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha game utilising the new RuneQuest rules. The game is taking place from the perspective of the Lunars who are, by most souls on Glorantha, viewed as a pretty damn evil empire who cavorts with Chaotic beings and is seeking to end the worship of anyone else across the whole world. The game will be text-based and will likely run 6pm GMT Wednesdays. Info for Gloranthaphiles In this Glorantha, the Grantlands were never truly settled by Lunar occupants. Everything south of Sun County is wild countryside. The timeline for this is shifted back a few years from the default starting date just to allow the players time to ramp up while the Hero Wars does. P.S. Not sure this is the right place to post this but I couldn't find a LFG sub forum.
  24. With the release of RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha on PDF, this thread is to catch any typos or errors spotted. Please note them here, quoting the page number, the error, and the suggested correction. Many thanks.
  25. We've sent out our latest RQG Preview, featuring preliminary sketches of Andrey Fetisov's wonderful piece of the adventurers in Snakepipe Hollow. Plus the finished work. We've also reminded everyone that RuneQuest goes on sale tomorrow (June 1st)! The preview list is here, if you'd like to join it: http://eepurl.com/dtqE9T
