Bring Out Your Dead
In the honor of All Hallow’s Eve (long gone now) here are a few new and tuned Undead mostly for Glorantha. Here are some new or more strongly tuned enemies.
Zombie Bison Broo
The usual suspects are there – Skeletons, Mummies, Vampires, Zombies, Ghouls but there are also parties for Vivamort and Gark the Calm and a Hag or two but also some rare ones like the Skeleton of Than or even Firebrand the Flaming Skeleton. There are now Skeletons for Dream Dragons and Minotaurs but quite a few others. Careful with the Zombies as they mostly are of the variety that reproduces well.
On the party side there is also a Ghost ship, Ship of the Dead and Mummy and Zombie parties…
All of the undead can now be found with the keyword Undead on the Enemies or Parties filter.
In addition to the Undead there is also a Lamia looking for more company.December 16, 2014 at 9:52 pm #11865

RQ Encounter tool has a nifty new feature for selecting many of the professional skills. It also shows on the template page the number of times the template has been generated. The counting method has been changed so now all the different ways of generating the encounters count in the number of times starting today. Before today only the ones that were generated from the main search pages counted.December 27, 2014 at 11:19 pm #11944January 1, 2015 at 8:51 pm #13595

RQ Encounter is now returning to the roots by taking a trip thru memory lane to Snakepipe Hollow
Back in the very early days there was a wonderful scenario for Runequest called Snakepipe Hollow and then RQ Adventures did a return to the Snakepipe Hollow 20 years ago. For Runequest 6 one would surely need worthy opponents in Snakepipe Hollow. For nostalgia’s (and education’s sake) added the missing enemies. Many of the ones were already existing and created just a tag for them. Here are few – updated for RQ6 – some of them are somewhat deadlier than in the original.
Both Hands of Chaos are it again.
Clawed Hand (they are almost always encountered singly) and the Left Clawed Hand of Chaos is more often on the move
There is now a Malia Service with Broos and lots of Sickness Spirits. This caused a tuning of the sickness spirits so that they contain now all the information of the sickness spread with the spirit.
Chaos Snakes also have a party now and they have been updated.
Gorps, there are lots of Gorps and also Manlings, where those two exist – Pocharngo is not far behind so updated the Slithering Pocharngo party
Colossal Breeder Gorp
Glue Gorp and of course
Giant, 12 meter in Snakepipe Hollow
There are a few obscure ones that have not been seen in publications since Snakepipe Follow like
Chaos Pit Monster
Some existing parties have been updated and placed into Snakepipe Hollow. Use a filter with name “Nest of Chaos” in Party Encounters and press the “Do you Feel Lucky” button – you’ll see a party appropriate for the Heart of Chaos in Snakepipe Hollow. It will include among other parties
Broo Raiders and Broos on the Road for Ragnaglar and Thed.
Dark Troll Hunting Party and a war party
Dragonewt Ambassador, Expedition, Revenge Mission and Dragonewts on Warpath
Ogre Trading Caravan and an Ogre Hunting Party
Some desperate Sartarites with Sartar Earthshakers
Scorpionmen Raiding parties
Thanatari Headhunting Mission from nearby Engoli tribe
Tusk Rider party and Urain Foul Wind PartyJanuary 9, 2015 at 8:01 pm #13642

RQ Encounter goes to town to check out the taverns and bars
RQ Encounter tool has been enhanced with new tools for building taverns. We received a permission from Johnn Four of the fabulous RoleplayingTips.com to extend our taverns with the tables from his GM Mastery Book Three: Adventure Essentials: Inns & Taverns. He is offering 100% off the PDF version of Inns & Taverns
There is now Tavern Names – Ports and Tavern Names – Cities feature table to provide names for the bars. Room Quirks provide varying quirky rooms and Tavern Themes can be used to set a theme for the bar.
There are now also RQ6 rules for getting drunk in the taverns – this was based on Sebastian Jansson’s excellent suggestion at the design mechanism forum.
State of intoxication table has been added and you can see its effects on any of the drunk members in the bars.
Taverns and bars also have a drink menu automatically generated for various strengths of drink.
Tavern Names, Tavern Themes, Room Quirks and many of the added “Activities at bar” inspired by “GM Mastery: Inns & Taverns Essentials” and used with permission of Johnn Four of RolePlayingTips These have been tuned a bit to fit a RuneQuest/Glorantha context.
All of the current establishments (bar templates) have been updated with the above
List of new things
Drinking rules for Runequest 6
Greatly expanded activity at bar table
Tavern names for cities
Tavern names for ports
State of intoxication
Drinks menus provided and can be added to taverns
Drunkenness table for the patrons of the bar
Bars to visit tonight
Bar at a port city
Bar at Fonrit
Bar at Monster Island Settlement
Gimpy’s at Pavis on a Quiet Night
Loud Lilina’s at Pavis on a Rough Night
There is usually always the big guy to oppose you – the big barbarian in the corner, the bodyguard of the boss, the sergeant. He could be just the really big and strong one the big Wolf Pirate, the blacksmith, the strongest man in the tribe. Now there are templates for a few of these at various levels
Bison Nomad, Storm Bull worshipper – the strongest guy in the camp
Primitive Islander Veteran Warrior, Strong Man
Fonritian Slave Soldier Bodyguard – Initiate of Evukindu
He could be also the guy nobody likes to fight – the unstoppable one – the only undefeated champion in the history of gladiator fights – the Tigris of Gaul, he could be Onslaught, Conan the Cimmerian, Marv in the Sin City, Kull of Atlantis – basically a fighter at the top of his game – does not use much magic but just the physical skills.Here is a version of one such. The version might not fit the power level of your game so tune up accordingly if needed.
Elf, troll,dwarf, dragonewt and eastern weapons (non official versions) have been added to the selection of weapons. Have you wanted to roll a disorder keg down the corridor against the attacking trolls – here is your chance. Volley of blunderbuss fire to clear out the too far extended tunnels of the Sazdorf clan – fire away. Have you wished to bash in the skull of these pesky Mostali aberrations with your troll maul – your wish has come true. Have you wanted to draw your klanth and embed into the stealers of draconic secrets – that can be done now. Have your Vormaini pirates missed their katana, naginata and the long forgotten yari – now they are here. Yari-nage, Chokin, utuma – all exist now. You can select now two new categories in the templates – Gloranthan and Eastern weapons.
The weapon calculations now also take into account the size of the wielder.January 25, 2015 at 4:06 pm #13935
RQ6 Encounter Tool 101 – Finding and generating your enemies
Created a small visual guide to getting up to speed with RQ Encounter Tool. This first version is for finding and generating your enemies.February 1, 2015 at 7:18 pm #14072
RQ6 Encounter Tool 101 Part 2 – Creating NPC’s and Parties
Here is a visual guide how to create NPC’s with RQ Encounter Tool.
This second guide concentrates on how to create NPC’s and parties. It gives a stepwise example of creating both basic and stronger NPC’s for a barbarian campaign. The example is for Sartar and Orlanthi but would be widely applicable to most campaigns.
