    Here is a link to a stopgap measure that I created to support my own campaign in Glorantha until AiG is out. It might be useful for others as well. These are my interpretations and in no way official.

    Created a draft one page summary of skills, folk magic and theist miracles for common Gloranthan cults.

    For each cult or spirit society source is mentioned for the spell,miracle or skill that is not found in current RQ6 rules. Criteria for initiate, acolyte and rune status is mentioned as well.

    For the spells and the description of the cults you will need to dive into Cult Compendium, Gods of Glorantha and Strangers in Prax – at least.

    All of this will be superseded by the official rules once AiG is out.

    Cults available are

    Aranea
    Argan Argar
    Asrelia
    Atyar
    Babeester Gor
    Bagog
    Blackfang
    Cacodemon
    Caladra & Aurelion
    Chalana Arroy

    Gloranthan Cult One-pagers for Runequest 6

    A bit bigger update. Revised again the draft one page summary of skills, folk magic and theist miracles for common Gloranthan cults – list now contains approximately 130 cults or major sub cults (7 Mothers, Aldrya) with their own one pager.

    The one pagers are now grouped by pantheon folders. If cult belongs to multiple pantheons it is in multiple folders.

    Tweaked some of the skills and spells for the cults.

    Added some new information on all of the cults (for example more info on locations) – tunings for some of the cults. Major fix for Yelm. New cults or major tunings for a cult marked with italics. Added source info for all of the non RAW spells into the source links.

    For each cult or spirit society source is mentioned for the spell,miracle or skill that is not found in current RQ6 rules. Criteria for initiate, acolyte and rune status is mentioned as well.

    For the spells and the description of the cults you will need to dive into Cult Compendium, Gods of Glorantha and Shadows in the Borderlands – at least.

    The links to sources of the spells is on the tools directory.

    Major tunings to at least Gloomshark. Added the Wolf Pirate cult of Ygg of Threestep and Dorasta the Earth goddess of Dorastor.

    The links to original books are mentioned for the cults, you will need those books for detailed description of the cult, skills and spells. Many of the books and magazines are out of print but Moon Design Publications has a few and some others you may find thru drivethrurpg.com, Amazon or eBay.

    All of this will be superseded by the official rules once AiG is out.

    Cults available are grouped in the link underneath roughly by ‘pantheon’

    All of the above will likely change during my campaign and has gone thru just initial tuning.

    For spell conversions take a look at gloranthaphiles more detailed conversion.

    AiG = Adventures in Glorantha. Runequest 6 supplement in preparation by the Design Mechanism (Lawrence Whitaker and Pete Nash & friends) to provide ways of playing RQ6 in Glorantha officially. There are many unofficial ways but this will be the official supplement. Will likely come in sometime mid/late next year. More info on thedesignmechanism forums..

    Well, heh, that’s what I *thought* it meant, but… I appreciate you answering my question. I’m an old RQ player who just got back into the hobby. Do most Glorantha players use RQ or HeroWars these days?

    Do not know about “most” – we are pretty iconoclastic bunch – some are still using Rq2. I am using RQ6 as my players did not like HeroWars but there are many who seem to like HW – do not think there is one true way – whatever floats your boat.

    …and I happen to like RQ6 – a lot.

    Hannu, I just received the PDF, so I’m going to take a look tonight. I mainly played RQ3 for years — with Sandy’s Sorcery changes, of course. Then Hero Wars (Quest) came out and it left me cold. I mean, I Know Greg and his emphasis on storytelling (I played a couple times in his Pendragon group and I don’t think we rolled a die in either session, fun though it was) and I could see how HeroQuest was the next evolution, but…

    And then RQ 4 came out — Mongoose, right? — and I flipped through it but…

    Can you tell me why you like RQ 6 so much?
