Re: Magic of Legend

Sample Houserules Magic System - Each Spell/Power is a separate skill - Base Spell Power is Magnitude (MAG) 1 and uses 1 MP. - The typical effect a MAG 1 Spell/Power in game mechanics is either a a:+/- 10%, b: +/- 2, or c: +/- d6. Typically 'a' pertains to skill chances, 'b' pertains to attributes ...

Re: New to runequest/legend - few questions

I'm not sure if I saw a response to your Wealth mechanic query in all the posts, so I apologise if someone has already touched on this. BRP rules have an optional Status skill that gives you a percentile range based on social class (eg: Destitute 10%, Poor 30%, Commoner 55% etc etc). In my BRP fanta...

Re: Age of Treason: The Iron Companion

As I said on brpcentral, this setting looks absolutely great! I hope this line gets plenty of support (and please please make supplements hard covers! :wink:)

I think 'Talents' are a great idea, perhaps used as prerequisites for Heroic Abilities. Other systems have them, such as Shadowrun, D&D, GURPS, and Savage Worlds. Perhaps GURPS went a little overboard with them, but essientially I think they're a great idea for fleshing out a character, and provide ...

No! Well, that's a "No!' to a standard set 'Cleric List'. What I'ld prefer is a variation of that. A large list of Generic Powers, aka Savage Worlds, MAGE, etc. Then these can be tweaked and twisted according to Magic Backgrounds and Approaches, and have individual trappings applied down to the tee....

You're right, of course. Just airing my thoughts without logic backing it up. I am concerned though, that having too many cooks concocting similar recipes won't be good for buisness. I just feel Mongoose's strengths will lay in its settings and source material, given the fact that they'll have stron...

I for one think that Mongoose is better off shelving Legend as a system, and buying licenses to support Design Mechanism's RQ6. After all, Lawrence Whitaker and Pete Nash were the main writers for MRQ2 which is a great system, so why work against them? If I were Mongoose I'ld create supplements to g...

Well this is all tough news to wake up to! I was blown away with the idea that Mongoose was dropping RQ2, considering how I've only recently started purchasing it. I felt ripped off for some reason, but getting over that now. After thinking about it all however, I think that the 'Wayfarer' generic f...

Yep, 'Elder Secrets of Glorantha' had a great listing of Gloranthan metals and their diffierent properties when Enchanted. It's a shame it hasn't been included in a Gloranthan supplement, as it really adds alot of flavour to the setting. The 'Arms & Equipment' Book would have been a good place to in...

Typically I aim for 1 to 3 fights per session (about 4 hrs). It's often good to start with some light action, nothing too crunchy, but something that wakes the players up and also provides a plot twist. Usually unarmed combat works well here, or escaping villains, etc. Then a small combat scene mid-...

Not having seen the stats in C&C yet, but I suspect that black powder weapons wouldn't unbalance things too much if you are using Magic in your setting. However if you don't have magic commonly available in your setting, then logically black powder weapons should unbalance things, just as they did h...

Ahh yes, I should have previewed my own post before I sent it out... that was a typo!

I'm glad you knew what I was talking about, and glad that you clarified my concern about any differences with the rules.

MRQ2 Cover Rune

Just a quick query - my edition of MRQ2 Core Rulebook has the Gloranthan Luck Rune on it's cover, whereas the product pictures of the Rulebook that are available on this site and also on Amazon.com show clearly the cover as having the Gloranthan Luck Rune embossed on it instead. Is there any differe...

D20 Conan as a product is great - except for the D20 OGL system. Granted its much better than D&D, and is on a par with True20, but unfortunately its still D20 OGL. Mongoose's Hyborian content has been great though, and is the only reason I buy their products. My favourite systems are BRP and Savage...

I agree that Magic needs to be tidied up to fit in with Greg Stafford's vision of Glorantha (its his world, after all). Myths need to be more prominent, as portrayed in HeroQuest. Totally agree with opponents being 'Goons/Mooks" unless they are central to the drama and action. Combat can be more cin...
