Black Gate » Blog Archive » Pavis - Gateway to Adventure: The Classic RPG City is Back! (Part Two) | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Last week I began my review of Pavis - Gateway to Adventure, the new RPG supplement from Moon Design Publications for its HeroQuest roleplaying game in the fantasy world of Glorantha, with a bit of history of this greatest of RPG cities, and an overview of what this massive new book contains. This week, I’d like to look at the book’s content in far more detail, with a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of just what you get in its 416 pages.

Heracles by another name | Moon Design Publications | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

People tend to underestimate the extent to which cults "travel". In Glorantha, the god Orlanth can be found from Prax to the outskirts of Loskalm, and even on the southern continent of Pamaltela. In the forthcoming Guide to Glorantha, the cult is referred as that of "Orlanth" even if the locals call it something entirely different.

Timinits & Trolls: A Malki Fort in the Wilderness

Timinits & Trolls: A Malki Fort in the Wilderness | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Despite the demise of the Middle Sea Empire, the Malki cities of the Umathelan Coalition try to retain their grip on the land. Whilst this is quite true in eastern Umathela (Cerngoth is firmly under Malki rule), western Umathela is mostly in a state of feudal anarchy where each Malki city controls but a tiny stretch of arable land in its vicinity.

The Look of Gloranthan Cultures, part 3 | Moon Design Publications | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

One of the many things I am excited about regarding the forthcoming Guide to Glorantha is the art. We will be spending more on art and maps than on any previous Moon Design book, and Greg, Dan Barker, and I have spent a LOT of time pondering the look of various cultures for this book. We commissioned several superb fantasy artists to work on this book and I am pretty certain people will be very impressed by the results.

Timinits & Trolls: Art for Umathela (2) | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

I have already mentioned that I feel myself greatly inspired by (faux) Slavic mythological paintings for my Umathelan campaign.

Viktor Vasnetsov (Виктор Михайлович Васнецов) was a brilliant Russian painter who specialised in mythological subjects. Here are a few paintings, along with my own Gloranthised comments.

Review of Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes - RPGnet

Review of Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes - RPGnet | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Sartar Kingdom of Heroes is a book I waited a very long time to get, mainly because when I had the money I could not find it in the shops, and most of the time I never had the money! While Heroquest 2 is a generic system, where you can play any genre or setting at all, from Fantasy to Romance to Horror to Hospital Drama, or whatever else you and your players can come up with, it does have a short appendix on playing in Greg Stafford's fictional setting Glorantha, a beautifully detailed world of high myth and high adventure. My first two HQ2 games did not utilize these rules at all -- I ran a heist movie game, which showed how fun and inspiring the character generation system was, and then ran a short Bonnie & Clyde inspired Depression era game about a family of moonshiners and bank robbers, which was also a lot of fun.When I finally managed to get Sartar Kingdom of Heroes, I was tempted in to running my first Gloranthan game with the rules, and it has taught me an awful lot more about the strengths of the system. HQ2 is a great system - but with S:KoH it really sings, and purrs along.
