Game Update #12 sequence (file #71)
From Rocky: [Re: Actions]
Rocky speaks up "Only thing I
have for trade is a couple good
From Varo: [Re: Actions]
[OOC: I vote for 6th edition
rules re: healing kitâs magic. I was kinda in
hopes the ointments in it would have healing or
anti-infective properties, anyway. Even ancient
poultices from our history were & are effective,
due to medicine men & womens' studies of herbs. I
also think easier healing would be good for everyone.]
Varo had already owned 50â of
rope before she did her last-minute supply run
before the group had set out on this adventure.
Since her new Adventurerâs Pack included
another 30 meters of rope (probably about 92-4'),
she decides to trade the original 50â rope to
the hunters. She considers asking as a fair price
a few of their pelts and furs (if they offer),
although sheâs happy to accept the large rabbit
for the group, if thatâs all the hunters are
willing to trade & no one in her group has anything else to trade.
After all, the hunters lost
their shelter & even 50â of rope will do no
more than aid them to tie up a frame of branches
& boughs for a shelter, or help make a tepee
structure by tying the tops of large saplings
together at the top. Their time to get home will
not be comfortable & they may need their furs to
keep themselves warm. She offers a silent prayer
of thanks to Ernalda,the Earth Queen, that none
of the hunters were hurt by the bear as she makes
the decided-upon trade. [final offer to be made
by the GM, which might just be the rabbit anything else is a bonus]
GM: Ack. Thanks for vote. Yeah RQ2
was so early in rpg terms that a lot of details
like healing was not determined. :) You can find
a secluded spot to wash nude and I'm sure the
guys would not interfere. Its clear the leader
has his eye on you so best not to mess with that.
From Juno: [Re: Actions[
Ooc: [Happy Festive December a
long Xmas morning post stocking gift to all LOL.
Thanks for all your posts this winter season. My
view On Healing: Using rq 6 healing rules may
open up more role playing? Since everyone being
I. This campaign being magical healers by the
gods it may be more rpg to heal with out spells a
more natraul feat? And agree with Varo as
well. No use making up rules but hybrid thought
is there a healing skill so failure uses the rq2
basic healing rule and success uses rq6 advanced healing rules?
When the two men ask for help
Juno stares intently at both looking for
suspicious activity and then says âone moment let me checkâ?.
GM: Ack. Thanks for vote seems your
for rq6 healing if not let me know. Yeah the
basic first aid rq2 implies its for bleeding and
would cleaning very civil war era basic stuff but
rq6 used star wars bacta tank tech. :) So figured
I'd ask the group. Good post I love the role
playing than just 1 liners. Good stuff you and
Varo are doing. I deleted the if/thens from above
cause I had trouble with cut/paste. But I kept
it for below the final results.
[Wildday, Death week, Storm Season,
1625, Dragon Pass, Genertela, Glorantha]
[Time: Afternoon North of Demark]
[Time: 9:22 pm]
[Once at new stream and torches used to clean by...]
Varo brings her horse to warn if any
danger nearby as she is more secluded.
Closer to her personal feelings as
the lone female in this group of men, she is now
extremely glad her new Adventurers Pack included
a clean set of peasant clothing. She will remove
her boots & leather armor beside the stream, then
retreat behind a large bush & change into the
cloth or woolen peasant clothes, even though it's
men's clothing (which she chose for its
practicality), after which she will proceed to
clean her gear & her original traders clothing as
recommended by their guide, pulling out her soap
bar & preparing to scrub, sending a general smile
toward her fellow group members & politely turns
away from them as they all commence to scrub
their gear. She admits to herself she is a little
tempted to peek; they would feel the same, after
all. She quietly chuckles to herself as she
settles along the stream with all her gear that
needs cleaning, within easy sight of the others,
but separate from them. She first checks that all
her water containers are filled with fresh, clean
water, and that her mare has drunk recently.
Juno fills his water for himself and
his horses before cleaning his clothes in the
river as instructed. He mutters a silent prayer
to his god that he is grateful we are alive after
such a bizarre episode including exploding
animals and bloody naked people cleaning clothes
at stream. He wonders as he is cleaning his
clothes looking down do the gods laugh at us especially the luck gods.

[Time: 1:12 pm]
Rocky speaks up "Only thing I have
for trade is a couple good pelts. Might help ta
keep ya warm, but not much good fer keepin ya dry".
Varo digs in her bags for the
rope. Being a merchant she is happy to trade
though hunters are not her typical
customers. She finds the rope and pulls it out to show them and presents it.
The hunters dismount with hands out to show signs of no violence.
The first hunter inspects the rope, strong yes! We'll take this.
Second hunter turns to Rocky, we are
pelt heavy sorry. Tell you what. He digs in his
pouch. He pulls a item out. We found this on a
river bank. Its some kind of metal that looks to
be fools gold but is silver in color. Our
village has little use of it. We'll include this to you.
When the two men ask for help Juno
stares intently at both looking for suspicious
activity and then says, "one moment let me check."
He walks over to his horse and acts
like he is looking at his supplies but fire takes
off his spear leans it against the horse pets
horse to calm it secretly tires to cast detect
enemies (1) if possible secretly as he can from behind his horse.
Juno detects no enemy or hidden
folks. Jaren and Marusk had already scanned the
forest but had not spotted anyone else as well.
He thinks to himself, 'He had heard
of exploding runes they mention a bear and we
just almost got killed by an exploding bear his
years in militia he seen men do nefarious things.
Why he is cautious could be unrelated but then again....'?
Still holding his spear and thinking
to himself that he really needs his stuff so he
says, "I don't have any thing of use that I can
spare I am traveling light. Unless you want to
make a makeshift shelter using those precious
pelts and some rope Varo has and my crap clothes.
He looks and gives a nod to Varo and thus a
proverbial prop to her higher power.
Juno asks, "Do you have blankets. Can
you light your fire? We are here to help you."
Juno says, "?From our hearts comes
love from our heads simple ideas for you. We give
these gifts as advice with love and kindness. May
our higher power bless us all."
First hunter turns to Juno, we need
blankets or at least one. Our camping gear is
fine though thanks. Your kindness warms my heart.
Jaren steps away and grabs a blanket
from his horse he uses for his own horse. Its
for the horse but you are free to take it.
Thank you sir. Second hunter says.
Marusk also digs in his bag and pulls
out a large green cloth. Then presents it to the
hunters. This is a hunters tarp. The hunters
nod as they know of such. It is enough material
to hang from a 7-8 foot limb and use as a make
shift tent. It will give you the shelter you need.
The first hunter smiles, do you need this yourself?
No. I have a smaller tarp I can
use. Plus my own tent.' Marusk hands it to the tarp to the hunter.
The First hunter grabs the rabbit and
hands it to Marusk. The metal is given to
Rocky. The second hunter also brings out some
tanned pelts that were made in the form of a arm
band two of them gray colored and hands them
to Varo. They are stylish and some may like to buy them.
Second hunter mounts up. The First
hunter digs in his own pouch and brings a item to
Juno. May your god guide you to your
destination safely. We found this. A small
piece of green colored jade that is trapezoid
shape about 2 inches in length and 2 wide. We
would have no use for this as well. But maybe it
can be made for your use. He implies it as a
possible religious token or such but doesn't say it directly.
The hunter mounts. Varen, safe travel.
The hunters smile and nod, same to you.
The rabbit is enough to feed the entire group that night.
That night at camp the wounds are naturally healed.
Two full days pass without event of
anything important. Party has gone about 95 miles north of Demark by now.
[Waterday, Fertility week, Storm Season, 1625, Genertela, Glorantha]
[Time: 4:36 am]
A new week in the Season Fertility
and its the Water Day in the Orlanth calender.
Rocky is on outer perimeter watch as
Varo is on patrol near the main camp.
The sound of the night's insects and
snoring is broken up by a whimper. Mournath has
no tent and sleeps on a simple bedroll near the
fire pit. Suddenly he is awaken by something
near his leg. Rocky is now about 60 feet to the
west in the deep woods. Varo is about 15 feet
north of Mournath to the slight north east.
Mournath feels something move around
his leg. He bends up his head and down without
sitting up. He sees a small black snake moving
up his left pants leg moving toward his most
private region as its already moved past the knee.
Varo is not looking for snakes as a
general rule cause most threats are large like a
wolf not a moving stick. But she notices
Mournath bends to look at his leg. He lifted the
blanket but she only sees blanket not the
leg. Varo wonders if he is having one of those
dreams and figures maybe best to move along and
let him be. Juno spell worked but detected no
enemy. Gilbert you'd have weapon sat hand nearby can grab.
GM: Actions? Comments?
GM: All are healed. All are healed
magically Pow wise. Only Rocky and Varo are
weapon/armored up. Mournath may be wearing
leathers to warm up but probably not his leg
armor. It is up to him to decide what to
do. Thursday will be a busy day so depending on
how Mournath reacts will resolve this fast or slow and move on.
Healing Votes : RQ6 Varo, Juno
