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...

Re: Spells of Legend

In my own games, I draw a distinction between between Common Magic and Battle Magic. Battle Magic is not a discrete form of magic. 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...

Re: Spells of Legend

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. But I take your point. Yeah, it should go back in, because with something like Bladesharp you're alr...

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...

Re: Spells of Legend

I have some questions on these! :) Assay Instant, Magnitude 1, Touch This spell determines the composition of any liquid or solid. It determines the constituent ingredients and the relative amounts of each. It does not provide exact measurements but approximate ratios. The spell only works on mundan...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

One problem Mongoose faces is that the d100 market is more crowded than it was when MRQ II was the only kid on the block. We have BRP, Call of Cthulhu, OpenQuest, Mythras, Revolution d100, Delta Green, Renaissance, the Sabre System, and Raiders of R'yleh. Plus there is new edition of RuneQuest on t...

Re: Quick Starts and other adventure conversion query!

I have got it but not run it yet. It is not much different to old Chaosium Runequest and has different mechanics to Legend but it would not be difficult to run the adventure with Legend or Mythras instead of these new rules. Some skills are different and weapons damages are different but nothing tha...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

Is there news on any of this? We are now in June, so its 6 months. Alex Green and Solatask had Legend books with Mongoose so is there news on what is happening with them?

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

I wouldn't hold your breath. The "State of the Mongoose" is all about Traveller and Paranoia, no mention of Legend. Yes, no mention of anything but Traveler and Paranoia. I think unless this changes and Mongoose publishes new books soon, then Legend is going to be moribund like Runequest was in the...

Re: Does Mongoose have any plans for Legend?

I suspect you are right Damonjynx, and it is simply not cost effective for Mongoose to devote time to Legend titles. This is obvious and understandable. But my grumble is that Matt did not say so in the State of Nation address, which is a bit hard on the patient Legend fans. Yet when I asked the que...

Re: Does Mongoose have any plans for Legend?

Matt has said there is a lot he wants to do with Legend, but there are too many other priorities, like Traveler and Paranoia, to make any plans right now. It is something I suppose, but it is a shame it was not made mention of in the State of the Nation address. I think it is a shame that there are ...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2016

Legend books are indeed in the queue - as soon as we have some free time, we'll slot them in and get them out to you chaps! Which is good news, but the same news you said in October on the Legend forum. Why did you not give more detail in the State of the Nation? What is the Legend plan? How will t...

Re: Does Mongoose have any plans for Legend?

There is no mention at all of Legend in the Mongoose State of the Nation from Matt. I have asked if there is a plan, what the plan is over on the General Discussion part and I hope Matt will tell us what's going to happen with the books that are meant to be in a queue to be published. There is a lot...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2016

Without being too contentious, I think that much of Legend's fanbase has gravitated over with The Design Mechanism's Mythras Yes, I have some of the Mythras books myself. It has been said on the Legend board though that there are several Legend books in the works. It puzzles me and saddens me that ...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2016

Why no mentioned of Legend? Lots of Traveler, lots of Paranoia but no mentions of Legend. You have said there are Legend books in the works but curious there isn't mention of them in the State of the Nation address. Have the plans changed?

Re: Mythology in Legend

Hi everybody, I was just wondering myself if any add-on (official or not) exists to add or adapt classic human mythologies in Legend (Greek, roman, egyptian, ...), or any game-system compatible with it. Do you know something I could use ? Theres a Roman book for Mithras (which is like Legend by the...
