So many responses to a person who's just trolling and has no familiarity with the setting at all.

Don't feed the troll.

I was at Convulsion many years back (the predecessor to this con). I was maybe 25, and my beloved Suvi 22. We were at least a decade younger than the next youngest ppl. :)

We need younger people finding Glorantha again.

(it's obvious that the art and layout has been done in colour, then converted to gray-scale). They aren't! They are all done as b/w! Ok, my apologies then. I'm confused though, it surely looks like the art is in colour and then converted to grayscale. The backgrounds also look like the parchment co...

It's not the main thing, but it really does bug me. I was prepared to (and did) pay for mongoose's hard cover books since they had high production values. Nice glossy colour pages, and all that. When the printers went B&W my personal sense of value scale tipped the wrong way. I handled some of the b...

Oh man :(

The art & layout look like they were created in colour. Why not publish them in PDF form so that we can enjoy them on the computer screen even if not in hardbound print?

I can't imagine it being cheaper to publish B&W PDF's.

I'm afraid this will probably put me off buying them now.

Are even the PDFs black&white now?!? :(

I just looked at preview .pdf's of Dara Happa Stirs and the Dragonewt book.

I've been happily buying the mongoose books in pdf format, as I don't want to buy the ugly black and white paper versions. The new previews look like they are in black and white too!

Somebody enlighten me please.

The reimagining of the Cthulhu mythos in the book is brilliant. The writing is good, and the books is gorgeous. There are a few pages where the red text looks out-of-focus, but it's rare enough that it doesn't really bother me. My only real beef it the redicuous "hybrid damage" rule. If a rocket lau...

I had decided to let Cthulhutech pass me by. I noticed a copy at my local store (Turku, Finland) and leafed though it a bit. The glossy full cover hardback book was so gorgeous and professional looking, that I forked over the 50 euro's then and there, and feel I have gotten good value for my money. ...

When does the Dragonewt book go .pdf?

I thought I'd download the dragonewt book as an early christmas present for myself, but apparently it's not yet awailable.

Any idea when this will change?

I like competent characters. I've done the farmboys from village X beginning too many times to really find it interesting. In our games we usually have a character creating system that ties skill levels to the character's age. Basically we create a character (consept and story), and then put numbers...

My favourite such spell is Face Chaos, or whatever it's called now. Cast it on your companion when you are running from a gang of broos or a chaos demon, it can't be resisted and makes them stop and fight, or stop and die. That should buy enough time to regroup and counterattack or just escape. Whe...

Mostal only knows what Dwarfs eat, and I think even they don't like it. Dwarfs eat processed food that comes in tins. Nobody except the Quicksilver alchemists knows what goes into the tins. However, dwarfs who develop a fault in their operation, or reach the end of their operating lifespan, are usu...

I picked d100 since I did play a lot of RQ3 back in the day (and Hârnmaster later), but I think 3d6 (GURPS) would have been the right box for me.

It's ok. You guys win.

RQ didn't need Advantages / Disadvantages in 1978 and it doesn't need them now. People who like them should stick to other systems.

Happy?
