Deus Vult

Postby geekoo » Mon Apr 26, 2010 8:44 am

hi ,
I am new to Runequest and I was intrigued by the setting Deus Vult...
Can someone give me information about the setting.
What kind of characters are playeable? do you have to play priest or monks? Or is everything available?

Is the setting containing a adventure or small campaign?
Can I find somewhere on the net a review of the game?


ps: in fact I am looking for a new setting and I always liked settings based on history (vampire dark ages, ars magica or even Fvlminata)
So if you could give me a few advices.
thanks

Wayland's Forge had sold out when I went to get a copy on Saturday, but I have high hopes for this Saturday coming.

I'll let you know then, if nobody else has responded.

I have the book and think it is great setting. Generally PCes are monks of the chatolic order with secret agenda and they fight with evil. The setting is 12 century europe with sorcery, spirits, demons and such things being real, but rather rare and hidden from normal folk. So magic is legendary but exists. PCes are monks but special ones, i would say that they are like spies rather then monks, some of them with divine powers. There much more to the setting and it is really dark one and i love it.

Would Moongoose plan to print any books to the line other then campaigns and scenarios ? Maybe some Demonologist book lik Necromancy for RQ2?

This setting is near to the historical setting from the video-assassin's creed. PC are special templar mix between warrior-monk and medieval secret agent. They fight to assure the influence of the Templar order and to fine legendary relic.
It's possible to play in many context like crusades, inquisition or plot inside the european medieval and feodal kingdom

PS : excuse me for my bad englsih, i'm french and i have written quick

Hi geeko

This Danse Macbre might be of interest if you want to mine it for information, background, spells, etc:

http://mythogames.150m.com/folder_01/danse_intro.htm

There are the main rules, black magic (sorcery / demonology), taint, corruption (I think sanity), green magic, white magic and about I think 5 - 6 adventures.

See what you think.
