Nomad Gods PDF


Steve

Recommended Posts

I just received the Nomad Gods PDF via the Khan of Khans Kickstarter (I assume this will be available later on for purchase from the Chaosium website).

Love it, especially the old-school (e.g. typewriter) presentation. But of course lots of great Praxian info in there.

Now don't forget to get your copy of VASSAL!

Because you now have the Nomad Gods rules set - you can now play the game!

There are VASSAL two modules of interest to Glorantha fans:
http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Nomad_Gods

You'll need the software as well as the module:

What is Vassal?
Vassal is a game engine for building and playing online adaptations of board games and card games. Play live on the Internet or by email. Vassal runs on all platforms, and is free, open-source software.

Don't forget, with VASSAL you can look at the other Gloranthan board game, sadly no rules rerelease yet.

JRE ftw... or the loss, as the case may be.

I'm currently limited to ChromeOS, which afaik has no JRE available.

It seems it's possible, but I've never had to do it for any of my clients. It's worth it to play around with the game parts. Good luck. Perhaps you might want to post your success if you manage it here to inspire others.

The 72 page rulebook for Nomad Gods is now available in PDF from the Chaosium website.

I see that this is just the text; is there any plan to release the map & counters (possibly also as PDF's, or possibly pre-printed on materials akin to the originals, so that the "entire" game is back in print?

Years ago Nick Brooke produced a hex map to replace the sadly off-grid hex map of Dieux Nomades:

The counters would have to be DIY.

Telling how it is excessive verbis

Personally, I'd recommend the BBG image - login for the hi res version

It's good enough to copy out. It's also possible to print the VASSAL counters out if you are of a technical bent:

We are looking at possibilities for having the map and counters also available to download.
