Thanks guys. I guess I can wait till January. I'm sure I can keep the players busy with some out-of-Lankhmar skulduggery till then. :D

Any chance of previewing some Runequest releases? I'd really like at least a taster of 'Lankmarian' material that will be coming out. :D

Release date for Lankhmar?

The title says it all really...

I've started a campaign and made it clear that I'd eventually like to move the characters to Lankhmar. How long till I can get my grubby mits on the source book? I'm reading The First Book of Lankhmar at the moment, but don't want to show my hand too early.

impaling weapons

When a weapon becomes impaled as a result of a critical hit, can the attackers attempt to pull it out 'for free' or must he wait until his next action?

Great - thanks for all the replies to the thread, guys. It's nice to get so many opinions on the subject. At this moment in time, I think I'll go with an average of two/three advancements per session, and give them out after each session. Maybe 'my lot' are an impatient bunch, but I really don't thi...

Advancement in RQ

I've just been reading through the rules - which look very good - but i'm a tad confused about advancement. Characters are awarded with an average of three improvement rolls for each 'story' which averages several sessions of play. That doesn't seem like much progress to me. Do players gain addition...

A shame that Age of Conan isn't out yet. According to the various threads floating around the forum, this seems to be a mass combat game set in Hyboria that Mongoose will be releasing next year. It would be perfect for you mass combat situation. :)

Will limbs still be lopped off?

I played a single campaign of Runequest back in the day (I emphasize that is not an attempt to sound gangsta), and my enduring memory is of severed limbs during battles. It was quite a lot of fun, in the way that the original Warhammer RPG used a deadly critical hit system. Will the new version feat...

A well-written battle report always makes for a good read. With the expanding range of armies available, this sort of article will become more and more interesting. I'd like to see how the skinnies handle themselves - my own games have so far all been MI vs. bugs. It's always going to be a big ask t...
