You can find a fan made one linked in the HQ links thread at the top of this sub-forum. :)

 

>Thank you!. I found it. It looks promising. I'll give it a shot.

Well, July's at its end now...

Any more news?

I've just got back from Zim. I  need to collate feedback, put out another version to reviewers etc. Progress but not there yet.

It's a good thing the world keeps me supplied in shinies while I wait, but just curious: any news of note?

 

We are working through the draft. We want to get a first version that everyone finds the clearest presentation of the system yet. Hopefully you will bear with us a little while longer while we do that.

Work is continuing on Ron Edward's Cosmic Zap. He has playtest videos and notes over at his Actual Play site. You can check it out there. We have learned a lot from that and we are ready to start turning those ideas into something more concrete.

We are negotiating about a couple more genre packs, and also starting to think about a new core book with some sample genre packs in it. Obviously we need to get the presentation of the rules cleared up first.

Progress is ongoing. We want to get it right though.

I'm extremely interested in both of these.

I hope to hear more.

Ian, any chance you can let slip the experience system in the new document?

Or even publish the SRD?

Just an FYI and may have been covered already.

@Ian Cooper pg 74 HQG, part 3, confused my from my first read until today, so a long time...

That section mentions 2 lasting consequences determined etc. I then tried to make sense of the bits that followed like parting shot, and thought I was so dumb that I could not match up the part 3 with parting shots and asymmetrical exchanges.  And now I know it was the publisher doing a poor job of cut and paste, thanks to HQ2. Please fix this and either marry the text up or put a page reference to page 82!

We are in layout, once we are happy with the way that final document looks, we will publish the SRD.

I thought about that but figured this SRD thinky is effectively HQ3.5

HW: RiG (2000): HQ0 (HW1)
HQ:RiG (2003): HQ1 (HW1.1)
HQ:CR (2009): HQ2 (HW2)
HQ:G (2015): HQ2.1 (HW2.1)
HQ SRD & OGL (2020...): HQ2.2 (HW2.2)

HW:RiG is to HQ:RiG what Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973)' Nationalökonomie: Theorie des Handelns & Wirtschaftens (1940) is to Human Action: A Treatise on Economics (1949): its edition zero! 😉

A man after my own heart.  Don't see much Mises or Austrian Economics mentioned anywhere on the net.

Me -silly me- I am waiting for the errata! When will it be released?!? I have been waiting since 2009... I have trouble understanding how an HQ SRD can be published before any corrected version of the last version of the rules. It just seems ass-backwards to me. How can one take seriously a publisher who doesn't believe in his product enough to ever put out an errata? Now -who knows? we might very well get an errata of the SRD once it is out before getting one for the core rules?!!

My HQG journey only started 18 months ago. That was also my introduction to Glorantha. Not really understanding the setting from HQG, especially the magic and creatures - powers of both. I thought I would have to delve into Runequest and along came the latest version. So I dived in and then started seeing masses of errata clarifications all over the place, so a few voices started calling for a official thread in one place and that was like pulling teeth. I don't understand a publisher who knows there is going to be errata, not starting an official thread day 2 after release, instead we all had to jump up and down begging. I gave up at this stage and realised I had pulled a clanger by buying into version 1 of the book and was never going to wrap my head (and time) around all the errata, let alone the rules. So in that time I must have spend close to $1000 buying current and old titles, I was loving what I was reading but the company that produces it... not so much. I have since given up on Runequest, the only thing I was half looking for was the discount code for the printed screen - I don't think its been sent, probably would not get it anyway unless I had spare cash. So I am generally a thumbs down with this publisher, not the fans though, deffinately the counter balance to my negative feelings.

Just my journey for those that might be interested in a newby's exposure to this place. They have my money, more fool me, diving in and not treading water for a bit to see if the temperture was ok. And yes I saw early on all the calls for an errata to HQ, but did not read the signs very well.
