  1. The new edition of RuneQuest will be formally known as RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, or 'RQG' for short. Rather than try to give the new RuneQuest edition a number, calling it 'RQG' neatly avoids any confusion... RQG is due out for Christmas 2017 (and it won't be Kickstarted).

    This is a Character Training worksheet in excel, although I call it a training minigame because it's damn fun. (OK maybe not damn fun. But more fun than calculating training.) A few comments: Sadly, it does NOT run in Google docs, and I don't know GD's feature set well enough to know if it ever could. Costs are generally based on the estimable Kim Englund's excellent training costs table- listed on the 3rd tab. 2nd tab explains the various matrices used to generate the results. Having made too much training time available to my players early on, and them having lots of cash to blow, I spent a lot of time thinking about the cost/benefits of training. I couldn't argue much with the costs in Kim's table (far better than canon), I thought about "what are the other possible drawbacks of training hard constantly?" Injury: the consequence of training is, of course, the omnipresent chance of injury - strains, sprains, or worse. So I built this sheet based on risk levels for various skills. The odds of being injured are lower with a MUCH better skilled trainer, or training slowly. Of course, trying to train hastily, or self-train (for skills where that's possible) increase the risk of mishap. (Self training significantly reduces but doesn't eliminate the costs as well.) The second consequence is uncertainty: in real life, you never know of course when you're going to "get better"...just that you eventually, probably will. Thus this table. Select the skill to be trained (there are also generic categories like "Other, risky, cheap" for skills not listed) and enter your current skill, relevant skill category bonus, INT (makes training easier if you're smart), APP (makes training cheaper if you're pretty). It will tell you if you can train it by yourself, and you decide if you will do so, as well as if you are taking it slow & careful, normal, or hasty. It then tells you the risk level as a result. Yes, training high levels of climb all alone is damned risky. Finally, I didn't like the determinism and predictability of the RQ canonical method of "ok I have 40 hours to train, so I can train that for 37.8 hours and get a check, woo." Thus, this table turns the mechanism on its head. A player recognizes that "oh, I have some free time, I'd like to train" and tells their DM what they'd like to train in - the DM fills in the details, and gets a result like "After 16.5 hours, and a cost of 45p, you get a skill check." The DM has to tell them "ok after about a half week, you get a check." or "you've trained for a couple of days but haven't gotten a check when the Fire Nation attacks..." It also gives the result, if the DM wants to use it. The sheet will give a result based on the final risk level, and the consequences of a fumbled check. (Screenshot above.) These can be severe...my suggestion is that when training highly dangerous things, serious thought be given to training slowly. Ultimately, the player has to make realistic decisions, recognizing if they're extremely skilled in something, it can take WEEKS of training to get a check. Will they really have weeks to spend? Only their DM knows... Let me know if you have questions.
  3. BROCH GRODDATH A Mythras adventure by Matthew Eager The adventurers are hired to find an unusual object that is believed to be among the collections of a strange, disgraced family, in a great home that is shunned. The item is indeed there, as are clues about the family and its fall...and worse things... BROCH GRODDATH is a “haunted house” scenario, with its own defining twists. Its key features are creepy atmosphere, disorientation, and horror. It touches on several genres and themes, including Low Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, Cosmic Horror, and Dungeon Crawling. A fantasy milieu is assumed, but with moderate changes it could be played in a modern Lovecraftian setting. This is intended as a one-shot adventure, to be dropped into an existing campaign, without larger implications (unless desired). Probably two sessions are needed to play it out. The scenario is written for four adventurers, but three or five should be fine. Four sample characters are included, for an instant start to a weekend’s fun. Mechanical details have been constructed using the Mythras game system from The Design Mechanism. The write-up should translate well to other d100-style rules (and still other systems, with more work). There are plenty of points for adaptation, to make this adventure unique to your game. What will your BROCH GRODDATH be like? Download the FREE TASTER and start plotting… http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/193 ... s_id=10499
  4. Anyone here planning on going to DunDraCon? http://www.dundracon.com/ Anyone planning on running (especially RQ ( most especially a playtester/demo-monkey running RQ:Next ) ) at DunDraCon? I see the good folk at DDC already have a special "Basic Game" track (adhering to a strict format) for CoC7 (also FAE & D&D5) ... http://www.dundracon.com/Submit_Game.php?Type=COC7 N.B. much-less-strict format can be had in the general game, but I believe those games are expected to run about 8 hours, instead of 4. For those who've never been to a 'Con -- it's really worth going! If you live in/near the SF Bay Area, or can arrange a visit over "Presidents Day Weekend" (17-20 Feb) -- I urge you to do so! My own reaction, driving home after the first time I attended, was "That was great! Let's go again next weekend!" Alas for annual events...

    Humanoid Character Sheet from House game revamp
  6. Hi all, I have been reading through the Chaosium Runequest 2nd edition book and D100 II Srd and I am having a hard time with strike ranks. I understand strike rank depends on Dex/Siz/Weaponn Length/POW and is like initiative order of combat, however I am having trouble understanding how there is also strike rank for actions. Strike ranks for actions which is the most confusing for me because it sounds like you spend points to do attacks looking at the weapons tables. Could someone clear this up for me or even possibly include an example with strike ranks and strike rank expenditure if the way I am thinking is correct. Looking forward to your help!
