That would work. Actually Wraith Recon has some minor updates to how the rules work (e.g. Brawn skill) that really ought to be incorporated into TGFKARQII.

Yep, I agree completely. Many good ideas have arisen since the core rulebook was written.

Wayfarer <= RuneQuest 2.5 ;)

Check out my RuneQuest 6 blog!. It now has an adventure idea generator :)

Well I disappear for a few weeks and look what's happened! :roll: :lol:

Own up! Who broke it! :?

Much as I love RuneQuest maybe dropping the name could be an advantage. The old timers like me can still mutter smugly 'it's still RuneQuest' and the newbies may well be attracted by the fact it's a 'new' game. So hopefully, best of both worlds.

Having seen so many versions of RQ under so many publishers rise and fall over the years I'm beginning to think the name is cursed anyway!

So I shall watch and wait with interest... :)

I'd rather it were just "RuneQuest 2.01".

Economics of Enchanting

Verderer wrote:...One another thing about magic that might be problematic in a more generic setting is enchanted items (ie. Magic items) as described in Arms & Equipment. I seem to remember that you need to dedicate either POW or magic points to crete them? So this would seem a big sacrifice for the magic user, and how do you explain this mechanism in a setting, when +1 swords and rings of protection are common as mud? Have there have been hordes of magic item creating mages in times past, and they didn't mind handing these out like free candy, or what?
Actually yes, magic users do create them and hand them out.
"Artificer, my favourite knight is on a quest, see he is properly equipped."
"Yes your magisty."
Also, many fantasy worlds are ancient. If there are only 1000 item creators in a whole world that are making items in a 4000 year period that's a lot of +1 swords.
Another way to look at it is that many of the item creators will not be adventurers, after all time is a valuable thing to them. If you are a family man with a bit of magical talent, what better way to make an awesome living then to burn some POW every now and again. Also, if you consider that the artificer only ever needs to skill up on POW, enchanting skills and maybe a merchant skill, they can probably level those just by making progessively more challenging stuff.

RQ is a great game, a friend calls it the game of limb lopping.
I still miss the original unbalanced and broken sorcery rules :twisted:

I'm looking forwards to see what Mongoose Matt & co bring out into Wayfarer. Although they're "leaving the rules untouched", I'm hoping the charge rules will get a formal clarification..
