Re: Familiars

Familiars last appeared in Chaosism RQ III as did Allied Spirits for Divine cults.

They would be fairly easy to reintroduce, but some of the powers would be best toned down. I would make it some kind of pact with a small amount of dedicated POW.

Re: Power crystals in old times (Chaosium etc) RQ and MRQII

I agree with the above. I allow them in my game but I restrict them to 1-6 points. I also make them MP holding, thus needing recharging, rather than power crystals, which regenerate their own power. You can also restrict the number of crystals a player can attune as well.

Re: Spirit Magic for Legend

Well presumably Mongoose could easily make them OGL if they wished by extracting them as a PDF and adding the OGL on the end. It's probably more likely that at some point there'll be a product which goes into more depth - Spirits of Legend perhaps. You can't make someone else's material OGL without...

Now I have more time to post I've found the S&P rules I was on about. They are in S&P 61 page 37 onwards. They handle sanity in a very convincing way that allows for mild to major phobias and the like. Very easy to use and easy to roleplay. I use it in conjunction with the fear rules in Necromantic ...

There was an article on sanity in S&P for RQI that worked brilliantly, it would be easy to adapt to RQII.

Thanks Matt. I admire your openness and honesty on the subject. :D As this is on Mongooses forum I shall keep my comments Mongoose-centric, as I have commented elsewhere on Pete and Loz in a similar positive vein. So, as a committed follower of RQ for 25+ years, I will be avidly following both syste...

Oh, if they are Dara Happans then that's OK :) Dara Happan hospitality is not the same as the Orlanthi version. Social rank is more important than being a host. If the PCs are nobles then they can pretty much do as they please to commoners. But, there could still be consequences. If they killed Orl...

Totally agree that Glorantha can be a harsh, dangerous, brutal world but my take on Pavis is that it is a more modern liberal oasis...thanks , Man Rune! I agree!

I allow anyone in a shieldwall to have automatic cover to their chest, left arm and either their head or abdomen when defending from missiles. If they are purely defending then the right arm can be covered as well.

I tend to give out 3-5 IR's at any natural break in a scenario or campaign. So if the PC's get a rest for a day or two at an inn or on a ships journey I award them then. This tends to be every 3 or 4 game sessions on practice, so probably once or twice per scenario. I also award one extra 'social' I...

The bit about publishing any tweaks separately and the assurance that RQII will still be compatible/is-the-same-game is excellent news.
