Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

Some of the other modern d100-based games just sort of overwhelmed me when I started looking at them. And I've no interest at all in Glorantha, so I didn't even bother looking at the new edition of RQ. Have you checked out Newt Newport's OpenQuest? I like how slim and modular Legend looks. Just the...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

You should look at Merrie England:Robyn Hode, it's for Revolution D100, but can be used with Legend really easily. Herne the Hunter is a guardian being that can be accessed. However, I am biased, as I wrote it. For those of us at a certain age, it's impossible to read the Merry England: Robyn Hode ...

It looks like the SSL / TLS certificate for the Mongoose forums expired back expired back on 4/18/2019. This is a potential security risk since usernames and passwords are being transmitted in cleartext. Fortunately, this is a different certificate to the one used by the web store (which expires on ...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

It's sad to hear you lost such a talented staff member. Hopefully, this won't dent the production schedule too badly. And maybe we'll see some more Legend stuff one day... :)

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

The news that things are moving forward is good. Hopefully we'll see at least one or two new releases for Legend in late 2019!

Re: INT and POW of Animals

It's worth pointing out that the concept of Fixed INT has a very long history in D100 games. I'm pretty sure it goes right back to RQI in the late 1970s, but I don't have the book in front of me.

Re: How would it work?

This is not a model that ancient or medieval societies adopted as it is a recipe for perpetual political instability. When a new ruler ascends to the throne, they are not going to want surviving siblings around who have a legal basis to challenge their legitimacy through rebellion. The closest paral...

Re: Armour Enchantment

The MRQ II version is at the bottom of the first column on p101 of the Arms and Equipment Guide. It is very similar to the text in the Arms of Legend sourcebook. This is cut down slightly from the version of the Armourblessing Enchantment on p40 of the MRQI Companion. Personally, I'd be tempted to a...

Re: Armour Enchantment

I'd possibly re-write the rules for Armouring Enchantment to clarify these points. Here's a rough draft of a new version: This enchantment increases the armour points of an object. Each Magic Point invested in the enchantment bestows one AP upon the object. If used on a living creature, it increases...

Re: What levels would you suggest?

The dynamics of combat in Legend / Mythras are different to those of D&D. Not in a bad way, but the differences can trip you up if you aren't prepared for them. For one thing, a large number of low-powered bad guys can easily overwhelm a powerful character by sheer weight of numbers. This can be a n...

Re: State of Legend

There is a market for a universal D100 system now that Chaosium has discontinued the BRP product line. Mythras may end up filling that gap, but at the moment it is vacant.

Re: State of Legend

I was looking at doing 'Portuguese conquestador' style games. Is the renaissance version worth looking at or shall I just wing it with the legend rules? I'm well up on the historical and arms for the period, just looking for extra 'flavour' really. Renaissance would be good, but Pirates of Legend h...

Re: State of Legend

Personally, I don't expect Mongoose to support this system. If they do, fine, if not, that's OK too. The entire system is SRD now, so I don't NEED Mongoose. I can publish my own stuff and keep the system alive that way. While I agree with what you are saying, it would be nice to see Mongoose produc...

Re: State of Legend

Yeah, I think anyone who is looking for new material will have to convert Mythras (RQ6) material that is being published. Legend and Mythras (RQ 6) are such close cousins that this is trivial to do during play - you can use Legend material in your Mythras game too. This is a good thing for both sys...

Re: Spells of Legend

Yeah, I hear you on this, but I think that if you don't make stuff explicit in the spell, it leave it open to interpretation which leads to argument which leads to rules lawyering which leads to me banging my head on the table. :) In my own personal Legend variant, I have made it explicit.
