Im not sure what kind of guidelines you are after. Only you know what your player characters are capable of, and what sort of adventure the critter will feature in. The guidance of "if you have a fighter, a magic user etc of exactly level 4, with 3.8 magic items each, and this is the 3rd encounter o...

Cant keep up, argh

So, from the books I've seen so far, I've pretty much decided that MRQ will be one of the two games that I pretty much buy everything for (the other being Warhammer roleplay) But keeping up isnt easy :) So far I have the rulebook, legendary heroes, companion and Glorantha 2nd age. I know Im lacking ...

\ Another reason we merged First Aid and Healing is the ubiquity of magic. With magic healing so readily available in the community, we thought surgery would'nt be that common, as magic woudl replace most (not all) of it's function. DD That makes a lot of sense, IF magic is readily available. In a ...

Using a weapon gives you more reach I s'pose.

I'd definately use str+dex for natural weapons, though. A bear is a lot better equipped to inflict harm than a human is

I'd love to see a 3rd age glorantha book, covering the lunars, with boatloads of stuff on the hero wars, the fall of the 2nd age and whatnot

I play GURPS, I dont mind bad art :)

The RQ art has been improving though. Legendary heroes and Glorantha 2nd age are both very nice looking.


Is this the actual cover though, or is it just a placeholder kind of thing ?

The online game Im running is classic third age Glorantha. For my upcoming tabletop game, it'll either be 2nd age, or a mythic north viking game


Or an eternal champion one... damn

I dont find a real issue with the rules as presented. A guy with high strength and low size is just a tough, wiry guy who knows exactly how to apply his tenacious force. Any rpg will have odd results. Its no worse than a D&D character with INT 3 and WIS 18, or a Vampire character with Charisma 5, Ma...

Honestly, I dont see why you cant use the combat charts as written. If the idea is that defenses are declared after the attack roll, the defender with a very high skill may well want to risk putting himself in harms way, to get the overextended / riposte results.

Stormbringer handles high level skills very simply. Just change criticals to 20% of skill rather than 10%, and rule that a crit beats a regular success.

An Xcom line of miniatures would sell like cupcakes to older geeks. I'd rather see a mini's game really, than an RPG

EDIT: That is not to say that I wouldnt buy "runequest XCOM" in a heartbeat

Using 3D6 (drop lowest) +6 for size was pretty dumb.
I use the standard 2D6+6 for humans, instead. Tempted to do the same for INT, or alternatively just make it 4D6, drop, instead

As far as actions, just give everyone 2 actions, and make it a legendary skill to take more than that

Sorcery, as written, is only available in-game. You cant begin play with it. As an idea, take a career that currently receives runecasting, and just replace it with a sorcery spell of choice. As far as divine magic, the priest can replace his normal theology skill with a specific theology, which, pr...

I agree. Stormbringer / Elric combat is one of the best things ever. Particularly for sword n sorcery style games. Combined with MRQ's skills and character creation, and its a winner :)

Not sure yet which XP system. The old BRP system is deeply rooted in me :)

We use it that the defender can elect to still defend, if the attacker blows it. Lets us use the chart, as written, with no problem at all.
