What about Continuum, UK? Seeing as I'm just about to send off my registration form....

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?

Two questions: Are there still places left for Continuum, as it looks like it'll be the replacement for GenCon (UK) for me this year? Second question: I'm really not that familiar with the Lankhmar setting beyond a few references to Grey Mouser, etc. Would anybody care to give me a good lowdown on w...

If you think about it, it is a lot more practical to have rulebooks in black and white - to aid things like photocopying character sheets and the like. Setting books, OTOH, need a bit of colour to give the setting a bit of richness in the pictures etc. By the way, I wonder when we'll see the charact...

The thing that makes me flick the switch about 'gaming theory' is that it's just a gaming fad, that seems to reflect an unhealthy obsession. I'd bracket in the same way that there was an obsession with 'dark 'n' deep' games in the early 1990s or, indeed the rules heavy 'simulationist' games of the 1...

I don't know, anyway, what's wrong with revisionism, being a valid and legitimate proccess. It can be used to rpgs, too, if so you wish. And it can be used to evolve, a needed proccess for everything, including rpgs. I think you are misinterpreting what I mean by 'revisionist'. What I mean is 'maki...

To rebut this rather strict argument, I'd like to make some history of rpgs. When D&D first got out, Greg Stafford was already creating his Glorantha (remember, your Glorantha can differ, but Glorantha is as Stafford's as Middle-Earth is Tolkien's). He wanted to create a true narrative RPG, differi...

Christ, having a go at Teachers whilst I am trying to relax on my half-term break....thanks! Honestly, if the people who criticise education were actually forced to try and teach a class about a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g, I'm fairly certain they'd be less glib in their views about making the world a better place.

I think it's now 120 pages because they have deliberately chosen to add 20 pages worth of Creatures at the back, which is just as well. It means you will be able to play Ducks, Broo and Trolls from the offset, for example. The magic system is interesting though - have they integrated all of the old ...

It probably ought to be noted that the new RQ combat system was stated as being modelled on Star Wars fight scenes, by Mongoose Matt. That is, there will lots of movement involved.

What you missed is the d20 version of the game, that makes no real concessions to 'cinematic' roleplay and is a fairly generic fantasy rules-set.

Hang on, actually, you didn't miss much.... :wink:
