After a long-ish hiatus from the Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha duet, we jumped right to it when we started session 12 last weekend. And goddamn did we jump into the deep end. I’m going to relate the fictional events of play, then reflect on some questions of prep that the session raised.
You are here
Whew! Another 3 sessions of the Runequest, Roleplaying in Glorantha duet under our belts. Though we’ve had some delays between sessions, we’ve internalized enough of the systems and setting that we’re able to get right to it when we start playing. In that spirit, I’m going to dive into this report. Some seriously consequential events occurred in session 12, and I am quite excited to relate them later this week.
Parallel to Noah's presentation of his game in progress in Actual Play and also to his discussion with Tommi (see Characteristics vs. Skills), he and I talked about our experiences with the RuneQuest resolution methods, old and new.
This afternoon my duet buddy and I will be playing another session of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, and before we do I wanted to update my actual play record with two of the three sessions we’ve played since I posted last.
Session 8: The Ambush
I wanted to post up some probabilities for Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. After I asked on Discord, Tommi generously crunched the numbers for me. You can view the spreadsheet he built (and lots of other game-related stuff) at his blog.
My duet buddy and I have played another two sessions of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. We agree that last session constituted a huge step forward in our game.
Another two sessions of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, and things are getting bloody and wild.
Our third proper session was yesterday, and my and my duet buddy's Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha game is starting to heat up.
Backdrop and Situation
I'm contemplating a game of Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. The core book alone is vast, a whole geography of world and system, and I have never played in Glorantha before.
