    A small bump to say that we are still very much looking for players, and looking for GMs even more. If you live around the Ealing area, get in touch and give us a try.

    Not sure if I am allowed to post links here, but anyone interested can find us with a search for Western Warlords if you want to know more about our group. We have a Meetup, a Discord server, and a couple of other places describing what we are about.

    Looking for a Citadel rhino-headed Broo miniature

    Friend of mine is searching for a Broo miniature made by Citadel as part of their licenced Runequest range. It's a Broo with a rhino head which is holding two weapons. (there is another rhino-headed Broo with a single weapon but that's not the one he is seeking). It's as shown in the picture...

    Why is it so difficult to get people to play anything besides D&D?

    5e has positioned itself extremely well. And the existence of DnD Beyond adds to the ease of introducing new players as it can generate and manage characters. All you need is a vague idea such as 'halfling thief'. It does most of the work for you, and then all you need is to ask what dice you...

    That's true. Few pulp characters seem to have made a profit from the treasures they sought.

    Why is it so difficult to get people to play anything besides D&D?

    I'm not sure how any of us can be definitively and absolutely certain about how and why the game changed. Too many complex factors at work. It's still a valid observation that finding treasure for least risk was the major goal of the game originally. Gygax's supposed roleplaying guidance was...

    Why is it so difficult to get people to play anything besides D&D?

    I think you are entirely right about the finding treasure aspect that D&D originally had. I suspect that the change was because D&D engendered several generations of computer games which had a shifted emphasis and placed a higher value on killing adversaries. And that in turn fed back in to...

    How many people in the UK playing 'Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha'?

    Just for clarification, I do have a (very very small) group playing RQ: Glorantha. I asked the question because I'm genuinely curious about how much Runequest gets played at all these days,. Considering that at one time it was in a strong second place to D&D, it has seriously lost most of the...

    Completely agree about sorcery! I use the same solution. You seem to be the nearest group to ours so far. .

    How many people in the UK playing 'Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha'?

    I ran it using RQ2 about six months or so back before converting to RQ: G. There is a scenario in the RQ: G GM's screen pack which revisits Apple Lane after the Dragonrise and Sartar's liberation. To late for Gringle though. The pawn shop is now a burnt out ruin. And Gringle fled from...
