Thanks for telling us, but at least from my end, I can see no problems.

But then I am only administrator for content. Does the problem still exist, and has anybody else had that experience?

Yes, it is, but it's intermittent, yesterday I was able to listen the your Episode 3 podcast (which was great by the way), but immediately after that it stopped working and I couldn't connect and same again today. I would say it's a problem at my end, but it's the only website where I have this problem and have had since you started godlearners.com

I sent Martin a PM, we'll try to figure this out...

In other news, the Journal of Runic Studies #13 is out, with more commentary on the Battle of Queens in Chaosium's actual play, many "Jeff Notes", Thirsty Sword Vingans, French #RuneQuest, real-world Rainbow Mounds, cheating merchants, and more!

Should the "What cult should you join?" item in Journal #14 have a link to anything?

Yelorna...  also somehow.  Which I'm mostly happy with, except for the parts involving living in Prax, and the "My Little Pony" jibes.

There are many Yelornans in Prax. However, that does not mean all Yelornans live in Prax! 

Also, I think the unicorns aren't very ponyriffic. They're feral killers.

True I suppose, there's bound to be some sporadic worship in neighbouring cultures (like Sartar), and in mythically connected one (like Dara Happa).

Oh indeed, I wasn't thinking of gameworld taunts!  I don't see Prax as a great place for lighthearted ribbing at the best of time, and I were to start, it wouldn't be with a bunch of stabby hard-bitten gender-separatists.

I was thinking rather more of the at-the-table ones.  And I speak here as the traumatised former player of a noble celestial qilin sage in another game...

The Journal of Runic Studies #18 is out! Which means I forgot to post here last week 😄 (you can find #17 over here) Anyway, this week is a big one, with Chaosium Con, more Starter Set unboxing, LOTS of annotated Jeff Notes, a quick miniatures roundup, and a rant on the metric system in RPG rules!

Feel free to provide feedback (here or in private) about whether the notes and comments on Jeff's posts are useful or not. They are fun to write, but I can just keep them in my head if everybody skips them and goes read the posts for themselves. 😉

Unlike the King of Sartar version, there’s nothing about leaving someone in charge at the Storm Tribe stead, but there’s more about the early journey.

Yes, if only there was someone in the Storm Tribe who could guard the stead. Whatever happened to that guy?
