Looking for a game set in Glorantha?
Glorantha is one of those settings that always just appealed to me, even if my outright exposure to it is limited. I love the rich combination of mythic feel and ancient world grit. I'dlove a chance to game in that setting if anyone is interested in running one.

I know there are a few different systems for running games set in Glorantha, which is why I didn't specify one - it's the setting that's my draw. I do own the HeroQuest rules which look flavourful amd fun, though I have never actually played them and I'm a bit familiar with RuneQuest even if I'm no veteran. On the other hand I'd be fairly happy with some other rule system if it seemed a good fit.

Anyway, any interested GMs/players?

Oh dear you just tweaked my Chaosium nerve. Would also be interested in playing RuneQuest.

Definitely interested, esp RuneQuest. Last time I played I got so immersed in characters with allegiance to actual places and communities who can't always just do whatever they feel like. Also got a kick out of Passions.

Well that's player interest anyway! :D

I admit I was sort of wanting to try the HeroQuest system but if a RuneQuest GM is more likely I can go with that. So... any GM interested?

I'm more familiar with HeroQuest than the new RuneQuest, but have played enough other Chaosium games that I could probably manage to run something. I'd need to come up with a method to abbreviate RQ's detailed combat so fights don't take forever to resolve, however. I own pretty much everything for HeroQuest and Hero Wars, and also have the recent Classic RuneQuest and Gloranthan Classics reprints, so we won't lack for campaign material. I also have a good chunk of the Second Age series from Mongoose, much of the Basic Role Playing line, and most things Mythras, OpenQuest, and Revolution. So we have options... scads and scads of options. Maybe too many options. Thoughts? Opinions?

You might remember me from one of your long-running Traveller games of years past, by the way. I played a retired Imperial Marine turned mercenary who took a stripped-down G-Carrier as 'repatriation' when a ticket went south, before joining the crew of The Laughing Prince. My uncle played our Vargr arms dealer and legal beagle (pun very much intentional).

Definitely interested in playing too, especially the shiny new Runequest.

Thank Alyse!

I might need some help creating a character for RuneQuest - it's crunchier than my usual tastes, which was part of what made HeroQuest much more interesting to me. Still I'd be willing to try (though we'd need to decide on a rules system.)

(Rulewise I have HeroQuest: Glorantha, Kingdom of Sartar and RuneQuest 6/Mythras.)

RQG is no more crunchy than Mythras, Call Of Cthulhu, or Basic Role Playing when it comes to character creation. There are additional die rolls because of the family history detail, but that's really about it. Still, you started this thread and I'd be just as happy to run HeroQuest.

HeroQuest would be my first call. I've never actually played it so I have to admit I'm not sure how it runs in practice but I like the feel it gives off and it seems like it would be easier to adapt RuneQuest material than vice-versa.

I do realise many more people know RuneQuest though so it would certainly be easier to get players for that and even if I find it a bit intimidating I certainly don't dislike the system. The one caveat there is that I only have RuneQuest 6  (ie. Mythras.)

OMG, a game set in Glorantha would be so incredible. There are some here, but the one that I RTJ was too fast for me.
If you intend to run with 1post/day I could manage.
Also have quite a heap of material though it's been a long time since I delved in that realm.
I'd be fine with any time and any system nur agree that RQ6/Mythras combat would likely kill everybody"s attention span.
Am at UTC+2 btw

Is HeroQuest a dealbreaker for anyone? If so, chime in now before I set things up.
