    Skyrealms of Jorune - other systems?

    Just curious. I have the 2nd and 3rd editions (of varying playability), and for a while, I eagerly sought out all the various translations to other mechanics. I haven't done this in a while and was curious as to the current state of Jorune. Are there any alternative-mechanic versions worth...

    [JORUNE] Using Sine Nomine Products for Jorune

    Playing in Jorune is something I think about from time to time. I've never liked the SRoJ system, but love the world. Over the years I've considered different options: BRP was a front-runner for a long time and more recently FUDGE and Savage Worlds. FATE would probably be great but I've never...

    Oh Wow- Skyrealms of Jorune

    So I finally read my copy of the 1992 Chessex version of Skyrealms of Jorune. And what a trip it is! The first striking thing about it is some of the incredible artwork by Miles Teves - and since he does nearly every picture, it's a really unified, detailed look and illustrates wonderfully the...

    [BOL/JotSS] Skyrealms of Jorune

    I'm on vacation this week, with no real plans, and was perusing my game collection when my eyes landed on my old Skyrealms of Jorune game books. After brushing off twenty years worth of dust, it dawned on me that this aging beauty is really a variation of the old Sword and Sorcery genre. So...

    [Skyrealms of Jorune] Why Drennship?

    This is a question/musing for those of you who are actually into Jorune's more-than-a-little quirky culture and background. I don't have my books in front of me, so I may be getting some of my terms mixed up. The basic conceit of the editions of Skyrealms of Jorune that I'm aware of is that...

    Skyrealms of Jorune: How to roll up non-humans?

    I've been looking at this game, and I was curious how one would roll up a group of non-human adventurers. Are there any changes that should be made? A party of those mantis dudes would be interesting

    Skyrealms of Jorune : a stronger motivation and a stronger ethos

    Skyrealms of Jorune : Lets fix it Just stumbled on this fascinating world. Having read various reviews and discussions about the game, mainly this excelent "Lets read.." by Grymbok, I feel the consensus is that the setting is great but lacks a central motivation, a sense of purpose by the...

    [Let's Read] Skyrealms of Jorune, 3rd Edition

    Introduction I've been fascinated by Jorune for over twenty years. I remember seeing the 2nd edition boxed set in the RPG section of a Virgin Megastore, and being intrigued by the back cover's call to "Leave your world behind". Later a chance encounter at a train station led to a conversation...

    Skyrealms of Jorune

    I've always been interested in getting into Skyrealms of Jorune, but I've never actually seen any of the books. Can anyone tell me what the game is about, and what the current edition is?

    [Skyrealms of Jorune] 4th Edition rumor?????

    Recently I've came across a semi-solid rumor about a 4th edition of Skyrealms of Jorune. According to this rumor the 4e version would first be published in German (!), before a translation into English would appear - sort of like the deal with FanPro and Shadowrun4e. However, FanPro doesn't...

    Jorune

    Really - who would be interested in a new version of the game? One with more simplified mechanics. I already know all about www.jorune.org and Joe Adams' j20 system, as well as his efforts to use POD to publish new fan based material. I am asking if anyone would want to see a completely new...

    Whatever happened to Skyrealms of Jorune?

    While a lot of lesser games from the same era are into their umpteenth edition, Jorune is dead as a dodo... Does anyone know why? It's one of the classic settings, if something of a niche thing, and I'm surprised that there hasn't been a d20 version, GURPS sourcebook, or something. TheShadow

    The Skyrealms of Jorune 3e Combat System Intrigues Me

    So I've been reading my Skyrealms of Jorune 3e book a bit each night, and last night got to the combat section. After reading through the section a bit, I have to say that I am intrigued. It's like no other combat mechanic I've ever seen. (Which is not to say that it's like no other combat...

    Skyrealms of Jorune gives me wood

    Seriously, this setting just pushes all my buttons. I recently purchased a copy of the 1992 reprint of Skyrealms of Jorune from eBay. It came in the mail today. I'd forgotten just how evocative the setting and the artwork are. It's like "Wayne Barlowe's Artwork, the RPG," and I could very...

    Sell/Tell me on Skyrealms of Jorune?

    Well, Skyrealms is one of those RPG's that sorta pre-date me. All I know about is a weird swamp adventure in a very old copy of White Wolf magazine. The art and some of the deisgn looks like it was done by someone dropping a whole lot of LSD while looking at upside down Escher sketches. But...
