OK because i am a sado and have nothing better to do on a Friday night :).

I've made some changes to the blog.

  • The first is i've started to list synopsis of the posts rather than the full posts on the main page and categories.
  • The second is that when they area  series of posts i've order them in the order they  should be read in not the reverse order of how they were written.

The aim of both is to ease reading and browsing.

The question is before i go do all 100 posts, does it work and does it make things easier ?

I like this set.  Very reminiscent of the encounters in original GM.  

The Lost Child reminds of an old scenario starter I wrote years ago for some RQ/Glorantha contest (titled "What Child is This?").

I like the runners high in the Giant Redwood.  The petrified hunter is probably my favorite.  The Mammoth Corpse has a nice air of mystery - why were its bones not picked clean by scavengers, whether birds or trollkin?

Hopefully alot leave questions which are loose threads, which when pulled on give a ref plot and story easily.

My favourite is the abandoned campsite, and it leaves all of these questions open.

  • Who was the missing lunar?
  • Why was he in Balazar on his won?
  • Who was the Newtlings tail for?
  • What did for him?
  • Had he not heard that newtlings tail is not be taken literally?

Yep, plenty of mystery there.  Being able to plug them in to varied settings and storylines is a definite plus.

I like your last line there: "The owner of the tail and pack will never return."

An interesting group of NPC's which you have created as the companions to Yalaring of Trilus. Well done, sir. Your Balazaring Renaissance is progressing well. Congratulations on breathing new life into this classic setting.

Cheers.
