Glorantha and Forged in the Dark


Recommended Posts

Namaste folks:
After several years away from Glorantha, I can feel another exploration calling to me.   However, I find myself in a predictament.   While I respect the newest version of RuneQuest, it's just not my thing.   My last three or so forays into Glorantha have been done using HeroQuest, which while has yielded some great stories, hasn't really scratched my gamist urges.

I've been playing a bit of Forged in the Dark games lately, and have fallen in love with the system.   Before I spent a ton of time hacking it to make it work for Glorantha, I figured I would ask around to see if anyone else has attempted such a thing.

The campaign that is current occupying my imagination is about the Lunars and the Kalikos Icebreaker expeditions, and how things get complicated.   (It may or may not be a parable about present the climate change situation we find ourselves in.)

"We Are All Us!"

I don’t see why it shouldn’t work. There’s so many examples of systems working with Glorantha. 

What Andrew said.  Also, a quick search with Google suggests this isn't a unique concept!

You might ask 'round the bitd/fitd/*itd communities, see if any of them have Glorantha-specific advice.  Come at the issue from both sides!

I played the Road to Skydagger keep (Band of Blades), and really enjoyed playing this game, especially the multiple characters. I'd be interested to hear how you get on. I myself am looking at Ironsworn to create cooperative Glorantha games.
