Have done a blog post of an RQ2 version of Jakaleel the Witch cult, if that is of any use to anyone. Turned out rather long, so here's a link to a google doc as well.

So its been a while since I posted anything new on the blog. Part of the reason for that has been that I have been painting a lot of miniatures as part of a 6mm/10mm sci-fi gaming project. The miniatures are all Dystopian Wars figures from various…

Does anyone know of a better quality image of the map on page 297 of the Guide? The one in the PDF version is too lo-res to read the details

One of the more important aspects of Guild Ball is determining how many hits you can expect to get based on the number of dice, TN and Armour. I took a few minutes to put together some tables that determined the average number of hits and then factored in…

I put together some stat cards for the four fleets that we will be using for the Faire Winds and Foule Tides participation event tomorrow. Every fleet except for the Dwarves has a Mage and I am using the Hydromancer and the Mindbender so that we can test…

After much debating (with myself oddly) I decided to take the plunge and pick up a team for Guild Ball. I originally wanted to play the Fisherman’s Guild but the sculpt for the Captain is really oddly posed and it killed the idea of playing them for me.…

Has anyone had any experience running the 5e Starter with younger children (around 8)? I have some FAE games that I was going to use but they seem a touch abstract and was wondering if a more direct game like 5e was easier for kids to grasp?

We've played Hero Kids but I think they need something a bit more robust to play

TIA

I ran my daughter and a friend through it (they were 8) and they grasped it well enough. Seeing D&D again through their eyes actually rekindled it for me. I let them just tell me what was going on and then layered it into the rules.

Anyone have any suggestions for good RPG podcasts? Not looking for anything game specific but podcasts that discuss RPGs, GMing and look at new games coming out

Are the AAA maps any more legible in the PDF version?

Using Glorantha in RPGs  - 
 
So I am going to be picking up the Masters of Luck and Death PDF as it is referenced in Gloranthan Adventures 1 New Beginnings. Are the Lunar Handbooks still a useful addition to a library?

Ignoring the whole canon thing, the molad is full of NPCs that you can very easily use in your games. Ignore the stats, magic, rune stuff, the descriptions and motivations are very useful. Need a healer, there's a load of them. It's also got one of the lunar groups that act in the battle of Iceland. I used them as antagonists in my game. Although not one of the best Issaries era products, I still use it for the scenario hooks in each section and the people described.

As for the two ILH books, they've been superseded by the lunar structure in Pavis and HeroQuest Glorantha. But if you are interested I wouldn't stop you reading:-)

Today was the Guild Ball Game Day at The Sentry Box. We managed to have three tables running with eight people playing games and about the same number watching, asking questions and checking the game out. I had my Engineer team (Ballista, Ratchet, Salvo,…

So I finally finished the final fleet for the Fayre Winds & Foul Tides demo game. These are a mix of first and second generation Shroud Mage vessels from the Uncharted Seas range from Spartan Games. The difference between the sculpts is really shocking.…
