StarFleet: Traveller

I could have sworn that the ADB/Mongoose agreement included either ADB or Mongoose doing a Traveller version of Prime Directive (ADB's RPG).

Is that on the horizon from anybody?

Re: Missing Blood Magic

I would definitely pony up for Blood Magic II (or whatever it's called). Basically Matt you can't take money from me fast enough. :mrgreen:

Missing Blood Magic

So Blood Magic basically has these sections... Blood and Sacrifice (Historical introduction and types of sacrificial practices) Blood Miracles (Divine Magic) Blood Sorcery (Lots of cool S&S stuff in here) New Magic Skills (Concert, Enchantment, Summoning & Demon generation) Bloody Campaigns (Tips on...

Re: Legend - Core Rulebook Now Out + Open Content Info

So you can freely use any "... of Legend" material and if you use it or modify it, you can use the Legend Logo...and that's it?

Wow, that's pretty open even for Open Content. :D

Re: No Spirit Magic in Legend?

My guess is that hey decided that Spirit Magic as released in MRQII was not as desirable as what was in MRQII+S&P. So they probably want to take Spirit Magic, rewrite it with the S&P content included and publish it in the magic book. Understandable, yet extremely disappointing as not only does this ...

The "Nuclear Option" when it comes to Low-Magic Campaigns - all Common Magic and Sorcery Spells are their own skill. :twisted: Hey Matt...I know Magic of Legend will include Pete's Blood Magic options, but will it include all the cool spells from MRQI Runequest Magic?

Re: Success Probability Too High?

The OP does have a point. Good stats get you 30+, plus 10 for background plus 10 for profession plus 30 for free points and we're looking at 80+. Keep in mind this is still a character below 21 years of age. I know some cultures will produce an absolute badass by 21, but not everyone is a Cimmerian,...

Re: Running RQ: Game of Thrones

I would definitely pick up both Clockwork & Chivalry as well as Age of Treason. Both have new social classes, professions, and rules for Alchemy and a bunch of stuff that would be appropriate to a Game of Thrones campaign. Also grab Empires.

Re: So now that the Conan movie has flopped...

How did you find the experience of running a swords & sorcery game using Legend? Would you care to elaborate on your experiences? What worked well and what didn't? What would you change to make Legend handle the tropes of that genre better? Using Legend for sword and sorcery feels like a perfect fi...

Re: So now that the Conan movie has flopped...

Perhaps this has been discussed before, but I don't really understand this: surely the Conan stories are public domain now? In fact it seems they are considered such in several countries, e.g. Australia. There are a huge number of stories of Howard's set in Hyboria featuring Conan that are freely i...

Re: Is MRQ2/Legend suitable for campaigns set in MiddleEarth

The One Ring is a very good game, however, it's a very focused game. It is not an immersive game focused on emulating the world of Middle Earth like MERP was. It is really a narrative game focused on emulating the style of the adventures in The Hobbit. It's very abstracted, which is what you usually...

Re: So now that the Conan movie has flopped...

As I indicated before, I also believe that Legend is a better fit for the Hyborian Age than just about any other system that I know. I wasn't really into Runequest, MRQII sold me on the system, and I agree, parts of it (Sorcery based on knowledge of specific tomes, Priest abilities based on Pacts a...

Re: So now that the Conan movie has flopped...

I would be very surprised if Mongoose bought the license, seeing as how they let it go recently. Conan would be great for Legends but D20 is a more popular system and I can understand if Mongoose goes that way again. Bit of history there. Mongoose was going to move Conan over to RQII system as well...

Thanks for the response, Will. I was wondering, with the parchment and blue logo, were you (or maybe the artists) trying to evoke the feel of the WoW iconic character photos? http://img0.mmo.mmo4arab.com/news/2010/06/24/top5/top5_5.jpg http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/9/2006/06/gnome-icon...

constructive critism Fair enough. In order to be as constructive as possible, it helps to know what the concept and focus of the art direction was. It *seems* from the cover art, that Legend is being marketed to bring in a younger demographic, particularly a "post-MMO" gaming audience. Is that the ...

I think the best description of the cover I've heard was by Akrasia who called it "aggressively vapid".
