Character creation will begin asap. I first have to get the pregenerated characters posted.

In reply to Harmast (msg # 3):

Totally with you on that.  Was schooled in Chaosium RuneQuest, so am a little bewildered by the differences that the two forms have.  Still it is RuneQuest with Battle Magic, Rune Magic and leg hits that have people hopping to a different beat so often:)

I wish I had a pregen as I am new to the rules. But I will soldier on with the character creation.

I love that expression 'schooled' :D
Red Box here, plus some RQ and Traveller and Rolemaster, too.
Hardly any Glorantha though:(. The RQ setting I played in had been mostly alternative Europe. And even then not much, my group could not cope with the deadliness of the system.
I only really jumped in with Mongoose. Different age, though, so not much use for current Glorantha-Lore.

As is, I am somewhat overwhelmed by the power level of the characters ^^

Hello!

I played in a much older version, probably 1st or 2nd edition. Random character generation is always fascinating to me when done right. Really liking the family tree stuff, even though it's super-easy to wind up an orphan (then again, the early editions were quite deadly...).

Please bear with me during this horrendous character creation process. I actually like it a lot, but it takes time to do with players who do not have access to the rules.

Hope you'll be patient until we can get the game started. I'm really glad to have you here!

Might have been some maintenance downtime or something, should be back now.

Everyone: please write down (or copy-paste) your family background as a story. It should go into your character sheets.

For the pregens it's already there, of course, but still:

Re: OOC discussions
Out of curiosity, is this Background Generation part of RQG or is that something from ... I don't know... Moon Design, Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes or King of Sartar (Chaosium or Moon Design) or whatever else is out there

Re: OOC discussions
It's from RQ:G. Character creation is about sixty pages in the rulebook...

Re: OOC discussions
Hmm, I think I have a misunderstanding there.
Actually my own background only mentions that I fought at Battle at Pennel Ford and saw the crowning of the Prince of Sartar.

So actually I will roll for my family's history, too, unless you'd rather I don't, since my family is the clan's chieftain ?

Amazing tool, btw
