Gloranthan cults for RQ6 with AiG

Recommended Posts

Adventures in Glorantha Take 3: Gloranthan Cult Onepagers Come for AiG
Adventures in Glorantha Preview finally brings us official RQ6 versions of multitude of Runespells in Glorantha. So far we have 35+ years of history of different versions of spells in various versions of Runequest and magazines.  AiG gives us an unified view of the spells.

Cults have not been released yet for AiG - they will come later on in Chaosium Runequest but that is still far away in time. For the time being I have created as a fan contribution my view of the cults in one pager format.

This is how I view them to be now that we know what the spells will be and how the general structure will look like. I have crawled thru the original one pagers and all the supplements that I could get my hands on and created my view of the cults based on the view given by AiG. This is a first cut and contains 140+ cults in the one pager format. This should help those few who have the preview but also any others as most of the spells are available in other material. There are many spells that are from older versions of RQ and supplements - you can see the descriptions of the spells there or from Gloranthaphiles conversion. If a spell is missing from AiG - it is missing on purpose. The common spells are different.

Format is now somewhat different as we do not have acolytes anymore in AiG.  There is now information about spells given by allied and subservient cults. All the spells that are cult specific should now have rune signs in front of them. Progressive folk magic spells have been marked as such.  There are still a few spells there that are either fan created or directly from RAW Runequest 6.

The original one-pagers will still be available in their location. The new ones will be in Aig directory and have in small print on upper right corner "Aig Preview version". I expect I need to tune these still - so I added print date and time info on bottom of the page.

There are now couple of previously missing cults available : Ancestor Worship and Tokaz Varaz - the trollkin cult.

This of course meant that I need to change later on the stats in RQ6 Encounter Generator as the cult members there have been so far my interpretation of RQ6 Glorantha without Aig. The cults that have been changed are still my interpretations of the AiG as they are based on the Preview and the rules are not fully complete yet. Like noted in my first look at Adventures in Glorantha elder races are not yet described in AiG Preview.  I remain in gratitude that I got permission at GenCon to do this upgrade to the Gloranthan Cult One-pagers under the normal Fan Policy.

Feedback is welcome.

I will likely not be updating the original one pagers but will be working on this AIG preview version until Chaosium Runequest comes out - I will likely update the one pagers at that time for it as well.

So we have the Glorantha One Pagers for AiG in rough pantheon format

Adventures in Glorantha Take 4: Spirit Societies

Adventures in Glorantha Preview brings us rich variety of spirits for shamans.

Full list of spirit Societies have not been released yet for AiG - they will come later on in Chaosium Runequest but that is still far away in time. For the time being I have created as a fan contribution my view of the spirit societies in one pager format.

Here are now 26 spirit societies made from Runes usually associated with those. This is how I view them. This is a first cut. This should help those few who have the preview but also any others as most of the spirits are available in RQ6. Only some neutral spirits are mentioned here. None of the spirit magic is mentioned on this round.

Format is now somewhat different as we do not have acolytes anymore in AiG.

The original one-pagers will still be available in their location. The new ones will be in Aig directory and have in small print on upper right corner "Aig Preview version". I expect I need to tune these still - so I added print date and time info on bottom of the page.

This of course meant that I need to change later on the stats in RQ6 Encounter Generator as the spirit society members there have been so far my interpretation of RQ6 Glorantha without Aig. The spirit societies that have been changed are still my interpretations of the AiG as they are based on the Preview and the rules are not fully complete yet. Like noted in my first look at Adventures in Glorantha elder races are not yet described in AiG Preview.  I remain in gratitude that I got permission at GenCon to do this upgrade to the Gloranthan Cult One-pagers under the normal Fan Policy.

I will likely not be updating the original one pagers but will be working on this AIG preview version until Chaosium Runequest comes out - I will likely update the one pagers at that time for it as well.

So we have the Glorantha One Pagers for Spirit Societies in AiG 

Spirit societies that exist now are

-Aldrya
-Bagog
-Blackfang
-Daka Fal
-Dark Eater
-Eiritha
-Foundchild
-Golden Bow
-Horned Man
-Hungry Ghosts
-Jokotu
-Kolating
-Kyger Litor
-Mallia
-Oakfed
-Odayla
-Pamalt
-Rasout
-Stormbull
-Thed
-Waha
-Zola Fel
-Zong

Hsunchen societies here are

-Telmor
-Pujaleg
-Basmol

The Hsunchen, Pamalt and the hunter gods (Ragout, Odayla, Zong, Foundchild) still have their theistic side as well. At least for Hsunchen it should fade away in the future - so for these cults it would be good to use only the spirit society side. Others would probably stay as a mix of theistic (rune magic) and animistic cults & spirit societies.
