Re: Age of Treason - Updated Preview and map for download

Those nice chaps at Mongoose found time to put a new preview of Age of Treason on the site, with all new pages taken from the Legend-badged final version - and revealing one of the lovely full page illustrations by Mark Stacey. A high res version of the main setting map by Jared Blando is also ther...

if you would print the name and glyph in some sort of metallic look. Maybe gold? Would also look good on some sort of faux-leather printing, I suppose... I think it makes sense to have a design that hearkens back to the RQII covers, signifying the continuity of the game/ruleset. I for one really li...

Yeah, whoever did the AoT artwork did a really great job. I'd probably impulse-buy it right of the shelf even if I didn't know the system.

I do not know if it would really be worth my while though, as my players tend to prefer rather classic fantasy settings. Does Age of Treason also support the standad magic systems of RQII? Same applies to the Clockwork & Chivalry setting mentioned above, which also seems to contain a large alchemy ...

Should there be a "Normal" experience level which gives 250 points? Also, is there some sort of "clear all" button so I can start a character with an empty sheet? Thanks for the work, this will be very useful for us.

Other than trying to keep up with the name changes to the system - which of course means going back in to the files and making edits - we are still on track, subject to the 'goose, for August release. But not in the new smaller format. Thanks Simulacrum. Afe of Treason is much anticipated 'round he...

Right on! This is all very optimistic for my favourite game line. "Legend" works really well. Thanks to all involved for the positive direction this is heading in. How is it going for Age of Treason?

Put the Chapter name on every page. Yes please. Also, having the even page numbers at the bottom left while the odd page numbers are at the top right isn't a good idea, especially when reading the pdf - pick one or the other. Layout/Design/Typography isn't always a good place to be "innovative" as ...

Are there any issues i should know about these pdf files? I wish they were properly layered so I could turn off any background images. As I'll be printing things out, the borders waste ink and look bad. For example, at the top and bottom of the Elric Cults book, there is a black border which when p...

I'm told that even though there's loads of errors (There IS an Errata though) in "Arms & Equipment", it's still pretty good and details magic items and stuff like that in addition to lots of mundane equipment AND it's on offer for £10 ATM. If you get the Arms & Equipment PDF (even cheaper), it's ea...

Will Mongoose still be allowed to sell out-of-print RuneQuest books once the license has expired? Or will all those RQ books have to be pulled from Mongoose's on-line shop? They will be pulled - repeat, the RQ range will _not_ be moved into the OOP section of the web site. Thanks, that is good to k...

To me, restricting Sun God spells to fire and light is as bad as restricting them to runic spells. The point was that for those who want to, you can replace "Rune" with "God" (or whatever) and it's only the flavour that changes, the magic systems themselves are pretty much completely divorced from ...

It is the magic system I am not so sure about. The current system offers an interesting mix, but I wonder if this is too Runequest and rune centred for generic use? I'm not sure what the issue is. I don't see how the basic mechanics of casting a spell require any knowledge about Glorantha. I rememb...

So of the core books all that I don't have is "Vikings" which I might not bother with, since I have MRQ2 primarily for the Elric RPG. I think Vikings is the best historical supplement period. I am using the magic systems in Vikings for a completely non-historic campaign. Just buy it :) You won't re...

1. We won't be touching the core system, so new writers will be free to pursue their own directions but will be confined to new settings and supplements. The game itself won't change. 2. Some will be - we will do a re-release of Monster and A&E, for example. Likely Empires too, though a little late...
