Picked up this from the rpg.net forum: "I don't have the link anymore, but I saw an alternative CT task resolution system that seemed to handle this well. It used difficulties of 1-15 vs. 2D6 + Skill: fairly standard so far. The clever part was a +1 bonus if your stat was equal to or greater than th...

The best Elric/Stormbringer campaign I ever played in was in the late 1980s. It was a tragedy in the classical sense of the word. The storyline was epic, yet character driven. The crunch was that all the characters were flawed in someway, on a personal level, and those flaws led them, ultimately to ...

More 'Realistic' isn't really the right word - more logical and internally consistant is more accurate.

Well, I'm one casual RQ player that would be interested in a deluxe edition. But will it include the (necessary) rules updates?

I think anybody who gets hit with a sword should have to count to ten.

Y'know an Amber or a Planescape style fantasy would be cool. And Modern action would, I'm sure, work really well.

But really, I'd like a Napoleonic game.

Face it guys, if you are complaining about losing a total hit point total you're really just reacting to the change. If we give the game a chance to show how the designers felt they could do it better, it may end up being an inspired decision. Or not. I dunno, but I think people should still give it...

It may have been mentioned before. However.... One of the basic advantages of RuneQuest's system and presentation of data, is that all species outlined in the creatures section of the book are playable. You simply apply the stats as presented. Seeing as ducks will be listed in the core book this mea...

Actually, I knda feel that the Rennaissance has been done already in other games. I'd rather see something done for the Enlightenment period.

Or, more specifically the Napoleonic era....

Or maybe like the Three Muskateers.

There was a really good White Dwarf article, including humorous cartoons, about Runequest demon summoning way back in the early 1980's.

I dunno really how demons are defined, as such, in RQ, but it did seem to be similar to Stormbringer in many ways.

I blame bloody Harry Potter! Anyway, in my opinion Dune is not just a good sci-fi novel, it's an archetypal sci-fi novel, in the same way that Lord of the Rings is archetypal of the fantasy genre, or maybe the Illuminatus trilogy is archetypal to the conspiracy genre. That is to say, that most stori...

Monkey Magic RuneQuest setting and others?

We could have fun for a while speculating on different settings that could be done with the ruleset. This setting seems to be one of the perenially discussed topics on the 'What Should Mongoose do next' thread. It'd work very well too, as the setting is simply an Eastern version of Glorantha in many...

Dune would definitely be the ideal sci-fi setting to go with the RuneQuest rules.

The only problem is that, by all accounts, it appears to be one of the trickiest licences to nail down.

N'yar, but is there a BRP-based book for Hyboria though?

The great thing about having a new Runequest game, is that it allows conversion of Mythos entities without much difficulty.

Do you mean, kinda like Cthulhu magic?

I'm just asking 'cos I'm still looking for an avenue to introduce the Mythos (secretly) into a fantasy background. I'm not sure Glorantha is the right fit, really - it's got it's own style.

I'm wondering if Lankhmar could work?
