Glorantha Games 2019!

On Saturday, March 30th, 2019, Darren Happens and Pookie will be hosting Glorantha Games 2019, a one-day roleplaying convention dedicated to the world of Glorantha. Games will include HeroQuest Glorantha, 13th Age Glorantha, and of course, RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, all set in the fantastical, myth-infused world created by Greg Stafford. Many of the games will be run by the RuneMasters, the team of Game masters who debuted at Continuum 2018.

Held at the Geek Retreat cafe in Birmingham city centre, less than ten minutes’ walk from each of Birmingham’s three train stations, the event starts at 10 am and finishes at 8:00 pm and will include two four-hour gaming sessions, a charity raffle with some great prizes, and good company.

Rereading Project Darklight and Loving It

I am preparing to run what I am calling a Chi-punk game using cobbled notes on Wordplay 2 and my own ideas. It is set in the near future where a corporation is cleaning up environmental damage. It does this using a type of smart matter that blends algae, crystal data substrates, and nanotech machines.

The PCs are former deniable assets used by the corporation to maintain its power and secrets. Now, they have discovered something that makes them try and stop this juggernaut from completing its true goal of global dominance.

I say all that to say that Project Darklight has been a great inspiration and resource for this endeavor. It's a great game and explains itself very well. I like the solutions it uses to make Wordplay fit the cyberpunk narrative and while my "wuxia meets cyber-preppie" idea has more optimism built in than normal cyberpunk, my preparation has been greatly informed by this great game.
