Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha (GM4)
Are there any *must* buys in order to play this game? ...Assuming I'm totally unfamiliar with the rules.

Or better yet, free resources that mimic the rules...if, at least, to get me going.

Thank-you!

I'm based in Singapore, so my posting times may be a little offset

Since I don't really know the differences, I'm voting "Don't Care".

I'm sure either (and both) are fun.

Just dropping in to say g'day. I will be around tomorrow European time. I voted Pavis, but in the event of a tie will go Dragon Pass.

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha (GM4)
I too voted that I don't mind. (I do care, but I don't mind.) If basically Orlanthi, I'd actually pop for Ralios 'cause then we could get chariots - how cool is that?


WTND - I think we should be siblings, but both Humakti so we have to pretend we don't really know eachother so well. Or not.

We could play in and around Griffin Mountain, members of one of the clans there.

@Sam. If I remember rightly in the last HQ game you married my girlfriend....

I'd prefer to start in Dragon Pass and then be chased out by Lunars to Pavis. It's less easy (but far from impossible) to find reasons to do it the other way around.

I'm happy with this.

How about we play members of a clan of the Dundealos either before or in and around the 1618 revolt? My favourite Tribe and it would give us the option of becoming Pol Joni and/or heading off to Pavis.

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha (GM4)
Seeing that I might be the only 'merican in the game, just wanted to give everyone a heads up...This is a long holiday weekend for us and for me. I'll be traveling and away from home/work on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So my posts will be limited* to what I do on my smartphone and any posts that require lots of html-type formatting is a pain in the rear!

I'll try to have a character idea in place for next week (and post it on Monday from work).

*My father-in-law is doing a pig roast, AWESOME!, and I'm bringing my newborn around to my family. So the days are going to be quite full with social interactions. cry

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha SARTAR 1612 (GM4)
So Robert what type of game are you envisaging? Old school adventuring and daring do, causing trouble for the Lunars with feet on the ground, or more community based as respected individuals, moving and grooving within the upper echelons of society?

Just mulling over ideas in my head for characters etc (early days yet).

Re the clan questionnaire

I'd like to change my answer to "What deity did your clan help awaken? if any:" Llankor Mhy.

I meant to choose it and forgot to change after picking Which of Sartar's deeds do you most admire?
He sponsored temples and libraries.

I geared some of my other answers towards playing Dundealos folk.

Perhaps it would help if we decided first what Tribe we came from as this might mean getting a few more ticks on the same boxes.

It allowed me to change the ones i wanted to change. I moved a few inline with who ever else voted, though not ones I felt strongly about.

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha SARTAR 1612 (GM4)
As I have some time this evening I thought I'd throw out in to the (Clan) ring that I'd like to play a Llankhor Mhy character, who has been away for a while and is now back in Tula.

When can we start doing our characters?

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha SARTAR 1612 (GM4)
Actually, I had already had a thought that it might be neat to link us quite strongly to Lhankor Mhy. That is, we are linked to a temple, or, if we are firmly clan-based, our clan has a prominent shrine, and we tend to be involved in LM activities.

I think this could give a nice theme.

WTND, my last character was a Humakti, but there was something like that yes, can't remember the details.

As for Dundealos, know nothing about them. personally I like the Far Place, but I don't mind really.

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha SARTAR 1612 (GM4)
I thought that was you who had voted, you always have excellent ideas in the clan generation. As there might be a chance we go to Pavis I thought having a Llankor Mhy shrine would be handy.

The Dundealos live right on the Verge so we'd start with good anti Praxian magic. It was why i picked certain Horse ancestors and anti lunar.
They have connections with the Pol Joni too.

I've added my votes to the clan questionnaire except for the tribe. I'll follow the group consensus on that...

BTW, I wrote the code for the online version of the clan questionnaire...

If we're starting in Dragon Pass I'd prefer to chase the Lunars out of Sartar

Re: [OOC] Heroquest - Glorantha SARTAR 1612 (GM4)
My vote is that we are a clan in the Dundealos Tribe. (It's not a deal breaker with me, anywhere will do).

One of the clans the Blue Jay, famed for their anti Praxian magic, has a temple to Orlanth and a hero of Finovan, and another clan the Ulandrings, has a shrine to Ulanin the rider, a sub cult of Orlanth Adventurous.

Or we make up our own.

Once we've decided who our clan is, I'll start thinking of some possible Wyter powers etc.

My playstyle is a bit of a powergamer and a storyteller. I'd love to see the game work on community issues (clan/tribe/kingdom), including the political and mythic.

I'm hoping that the GM and the other players will also write a short note about their wishes so we can understand what each wants from the game and this will help us choose our directions, most immediately on the clan questionnaire.

This sounds good to me, though I'd also like to deal with some more personal issues to do with just us mob and getting up to mischief of one kind or the other.

I'm not really sure I understand what you mean by powergamer in this instance.
