Re: Fantasy Grounds (Unity)

Yeah, but that's just it. Mongoose don't own or even license the Runequest trademark anymore. Or Hawkmoon or Elric. So how can they be offering these? They don't have Conan or Lone Wolf anymore either. The BRP ruleset is Chaosium's so what's Mongoose's involvement here? The link to that Unity post i...

Re: Fantasy Grounds (Unity)

I would reckon that the Runequest thing on Fantasy Grounds is the Chaosium Runequest. It's their trademark and I can't see why they'd include Legend on it. Legend would need to be its own thing. I don't know how the OGL would work on it though.

Re: State of Mongoose 2019 & 2020: Legend

He doesn't think that the OGL will stand up to a serious legal challenge in the courts, as non-D20 implementations are outside the scope, from what I have seen. Does the OGL say that its only intended for D20 systems? or WOTC systems? Having said that, I don't think Chaosium is interested in such a...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019 & 2020: Legend

I believe the term for it is called "vague booking" or something. Making unsubstantiated statements in the hope that enough people will believe you to have the desired effect. Given the almost universal pushback (and the fact that out of the entire RPG industry only one company keeps taking this st...

They have clarified that the Legend OGL is perfectly valid.
So what does Jeff of Chaosium mean when he said on 28 march on the BRP SRD thread: "If you think the Legend OGL is "cast-iron", then you are fooling yourself. Heck, on the face of it, the very license used is invalid."?

Re: State of Mongoose 2019 & 2020: Legend

Given the unintentional publicity the Legend OGL has been getting this week, it would certainly seem to be a good time to get some books out there. Being watching the Chaosium SRD discussion at the BRP site and astounded at how evasive and dismissive the staffers there have been to simple, polite, ...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

Legend Every year we talk about Legend, and every year we lack the resources to do it justice. I regret to say that 2020 will be no different in this regard – we simply have too much going on to give it anything more than a cursory glance. No surprises there. There are further issues too… There hav...

Re: Legend OGL

I saw mention of it on the Chaosium forum. https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/9809 ... rq-or-coc/ I asked what the view was on the Legend OGL and someone said that Legend wasn't listed as OGL anymore. Very glad to hear it still is.

Re: How to handle A Campaign based on A Film?

Difficult to give you ideas for Legend because you describe everything in D&D terms, which I don't play.

What is it your wanting ideas for?

Re: How to justify it and what freebies to hand out?

Someone I know's started A RPG that uses Legend Versions of The unofficial 1st edition ADAD Rules for Social Class and Birth. The problem being 1 Player rolled A 100 for Social Status, A 70 for Homeland then A 3 followed by A 40 on Birth. Which means that he/The Character, is the child of The Reign...

Re: State of Legend

Why not run with it? Wouldn't it be nice if Legend was revived with d100 Traveller material?! Would that be possible, even?
Already done with M space.

Re: Spells of Legend

Without the OGL release of MRQI and later Legend, we wouldn't have OpenQuest, Rennaissance, Revolution D100, or the latest edition of Delta Green. Mongoose hasn't known what to do with their version of the game system and have struggled to position it in the marketplace. I was talking only about Le...

It is a term applied to Common Magic spells that possess military applications. Spells classified as “Battle Magic” are not freely available. They are “trade secrets” c...

An earlier draft had a comment stating that it did not stack with other weapon enhancement spells such as Bladesharp, Bludgeon, or Fireblade. But I took it out as I was n't sure if it was necessary.

Re: Spells of Legend

For the Battle Cry spell, I wanted this to be something used in close combat rather than ranged combat as it fits genre expectations better. The point about changing weapons is a good one - more clarification required! Also, is this spell stackable with Bladesharp? because if so I can see it being ...

Re: Spells of Legend

If I let a Silence spell with a greater Magnitude automatically end the Cacophony would it make sense to allow a Silence spell with a lower Magnitude end the Cacophony if the caster wins an opposed skill test? Or is this too potent? Yes I think you hit the nail on the head. Silence is a 1 point mag...
