  1. If you missed Sandy Petersen's epic THE GODS WAR Kickstarter, jump on board now with a Late Backer pledge! http://bit.ly/2eOeXls
  2. The Gods War Kickstarter finally went live earlier today and funded within the hour! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/godswarks
  3. I've been working on updating my collector's checklist for RuneQuest/Hero Wars/HeroQuest/Glorantha. The list has grown to over 1600 entries. Any comments and/or corrections would be appreciated. Thanks to those that have helped so far. Major additions include French, Japanese, and Finnish language items and Sara Evans Art and Greydog Designs items. Also included (in red) are the reprints from the RuneQuest 2nd edition reprint Kickstarter. These items should appear throughout the year. This is the only case where I have added items to be released in the future. Arcana Glorantha
  4. If you're still on the fence to back Sandy's amazing new boardgame Kickstarter THE GODS WAR, maybe these Youtube videos will help you make up your mind... 2-hour complete playthrough by Munchkin Games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx7_sCD1Qro The Action Phase: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTaxQEiDm_I The Council Phase: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9BFGSX__O4 The Empire Sheet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4VE2WGlyW8 The Power Phase: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krtYRoqm93M The Great Compromise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3B1ZEoQGh1U The Chaos R
  5. I am returning to Glorantha after many years. Due to the lack of shelf space, I now get everything in pdf. I used to have (from a sketchy memory) Avalon Hill's rules, The City of Pavis softback book, Griffin Mountain softback book, Avalon Hill Gods Box (possibly two), Avalon Hill Trolls Box. I think I had elves and dwarves boxes too. I had a load of magazine publications, Apples Lane and Snake Pipe Hollow adventures. I had some mongoose pdfs about the age before my favourite age with the Lunar Empire. I want to get back into Glorantha, but am a bit bewildered at what I need to get. T
  6. We have a cover courtesy of Duckmeister Stewart Stansfield. I've got 60+ pages of content lined up: Lightbringers Quest a different take on a familiar tale by Matt Ryan, which allows players and narrators new to HeroQuest and Glorantha dive right in and see what is special about the rules and setting. God Forgot, by Barry Blatt gives his take on this Zzaburi State within the Holy Country.. Light and Death is a Lunar Adventure set in Dara Happa by Neil Smith. The Awakening is an adventure by Scott Crowder set within exactly 500 Years after the Dragon Kill in Dragon Pass, where t
  7. Sandy has produced a new 'print and play' version of The Gods War, so you can play it before the Kickstarter has even launched! Download here: http://tinyurl.com/j73vqm7
  8. A peer-reviewed academic paper about Glorantha! It's about what it means to be "Orlanthi", and is from the proceedings of the recent 1st Joint International Conference of Digital Games Research Association (DiGRA) and the Foundation of Digital Games (FDG). Interesting quote: "Learning to understand Orlanthi culture is as central in KoDP as learning to jump is in Super Mario Bros. (1985) or learning to shoot is in Call of Duty (2003). It is also one of the things that make the game a challenge: KoDP does not feature any kinaesthetic challenges, so the difficulty is determined by strat
  9. Hey all, a new RQ Design notes is now up at the Chaosium page: http://www.chaosium.com/blog/designing-the-new-runequest-part-10/ ------- Good news RuneQuest fans - the manuscript for the core rules of RuneQuest has now been passed over to Jason Durall for copy editing! Jason's been informally involved with the design team from the beginning as a sounding board, but now he's taking on a very active role (including correcting any of the many mistakes and errors that may have snuck in as I finalized the draft). He'll also be writing the rules examples based on the ongoing characte
  10. As we celebrate 50 years of Glorantha, this profile of Greg Stafford by Allen Varney from 2009 is well worth a look. Recently described as "the grand shaman of gaming" by Robin Laws, this article even has a fascinating postcript in which Varney asks Greg to give an inventory of his current tattoos (long ago, it was a standing joke at Chaosium that every employee had to have at least one tattoo). Greg does so, with great sincerity, outlining the mythic significance of his body art (with photo! - "I can fairly say it is nothing like anything The Escapist has ever published", says Varney.)
  11. Wow, check out the new figure teaser trailer for the forthcoming The Gods War - they look amazing, and there's still time to sign up to get the Arachne Solara figure free!
  12. At Gen Con we'll be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Glorantha at a special seminar on Friday at 7pm. That's right (as you all here would know), Greg Stafford's iconic gaming setting Glorantha is a half-century old, going back so far it even predates RPGs! Greg will be there, as will Sandy Petersen and the Moon Design team who won the Diana Jones Award last year for the monumental 2 volume Guide to Glorantha, along with many other writers and artists who've helped share and create Stafford's mythic universe over the decades. A feature of the event will be showcasing the new Chaosium e
  13. http://mentalfloss.com/uk/animals/31011/10-quacking-facts-about-ducks Hmmm, using the old RuneQuest Rumour Table key (Griffin Mountain), for Gloranthan Ducks, I would say: 1. R, 2. T, 3. B, 4. M, 5. T, 6. T, 7. F, 8. B, 9. R, 10. M
  14. Hi all, Any know of a computer program out there for creating weather data on a week or season basis based off the chart on page 5 of Griffin mountain? Thanks

  16. MOB posted this to the Glorantha list, but this really should be here in the RuneQuest Gateway folder! Plenty of info here! ----------- In the spirit of bringing the band back together, Chaosium is delighted to announce that Steve Perrin is joining the design team for Chaosium’s new edition of RuneQuest. "We knew that Steve Perrin’s place at the table, as both the creator and lead author of the original groundbreaking ‘78 and ‘79 editions of game, was a natural fit that harkens back to the genius and originality of RuneQuest", said Rick Meints, President of Chaosium. In
  17. Here are two ideas for Glorantha: 1. "One man in a hundred achieves mastery" 2. "One master equals ten men" They can be taken abstractly, but I'll use concepts from HQ1 to describe them, and the second idea can be applied to game rules.

  19. To celebrate some work successes, my wife wishes to celebrate the occasion, by giving me some hobby funds -- with this money I was seriously contemplating picking up the six map pack, ideally to mount on the wall, as well as possibly the 24 map set of the entire Gloranthan world. I wanted to see what the opinions were of the maps, and there usefulness (primarily the 12x18 maps) in gaming, for those who have purchased them. I have searched online and haven't seen much talk of them. I ask as I know the PDF of the Atlas (which I own) are not vector based and using zoom doesn't net the best result
  20. Howdy I'm picking up on a Savage Worlds powered Glorantha game I've been running sporadically (well, twice) and am coming to the end of the old school tour of Duke Raus' lands. So far we've had Agimori, Morskanth, Tusk Riders, Newtlings, animal Nomads, sneering Lunars etc. and the obvious next step is more widespread cult activity and / or Chaos. Specifically Broos. There are Trolls in the Big Rubble and someone needs to rub a Dragonnewt up the wrong way (so to speak). Are there any other big-hitters to get introduced do you think? If you were introducing new people to the setting
  21. With the RQ2 Kickstarter going well, how are Loz and Pete coming along with RQ6 Glorantha ruleset? I don't see any news on the designmechanism website since the GenCon stuff, so hoping that they or Jeff or Rick can give us some idea of how it goes.
  22. The Dead of Glorantha One of the greatest magics in Glorantha is the living body of a person. There are magics to partake from this magic for other purposes – voluntary sacrifice of magical energy, blood, emotions, even pain and death, but also involuntary donations such as a wraith's or vampire's drain of life, a sorcerer's Tapping, or gruesome sacrifice to enemy demons or deities. But the dead still retain quite a bit of the magic that the life person had. Why else would there be head-hunters (besides the Thanatari) or reliquiars of ancestors or heroes? Even in societies that destroy the bod

    The King of Dykene, Skilfil Heartpiercer, has been informed that some of his people from the Blue Dog tribe in the Northern extremes of his land have gone missing. The normal scouting parties of the Blue Dog tribe have not been able to discover anything useful and the King has decided to hire some adventurers to discover what has happened... Return to Griffin Mountain can be played as a standalone module… However, to make the Games Masters job much easier you should also have the Gloranthan Classics Volume III - Griffin Mountain source book, available from Moon Design. This adventure ha
  24. As I've stated elsewhere, I'm fairly new to BRP. My aunt however, is not. She started playing RuneQuest in the 80's and with all my talk recently of BRP she is really starting to miss her adventures in Glorantha. I know that she would love to go back. ...and I would love to take her back. Yet, there are a few problems. First, I've been building a world in my mind and on paper ever since I started playing D&D and while it would be great to do some Gloranthan adventures - I prefer to use my own world. (The solution that I have come up with is to link them in some fashion.) Sec
  25. While impatiently waiting for the Guide to Glorantha to be finished, I need to go through all my accumulated material to satiate my hunger for more knowledge about the setting. I have decided to start reading HeroQuest – Roleplaying in Glorantha, that is HQ 1st edition (or Hero Wars 2nd ed. depending how you want to frame the issue.) HQ1 rather than HQ2 because the older edition is closely tied to the world of Glorantha and contains a lot of information about it. But I am also interested to learn more details about the system. The rather freeform narrativism does not really appeal to me ove
