Many people feel the same way about ducks, morokanths, and myriad other unique aspects of the setting, because, honestly, they’re pretty wacky. James Maliszewski July 15, at lae The DM is instructed to leave the room for awhile, while the players figure out where they hide the gem and their general plan.
Apple Lane (Publication)
Frank July 14, at Swordsman July 15, at 8: Whiteeye’s extinguish spell brought a near TPK that led to between-adventures drilling on lighting a torch in the dark “This is my torch! However, the buildings aren’t what make Apple Lane interesting; it’s the inhabitants of the place that give this rural locale its unique charm.
As to the “funny” races, we did have jokes about orange sauce and such, but in my more recent play, while there were still jokes, it really wasn’t all that bad though I’m not sure I’ve ever had a PC duck – we have had PC newtlings and baboons ,ane.
So much more interesting appple yet another generic orc. However, the Pawnshop offers a unique twist that makes me want to use it sometime: The first scenario, “Gringle’s Pawnshop,” is little more than an extended battle, defending the aforesaid pawnshop from an attack by baboons in alliance with a group of non-human outlaws led by a centaur.
A glance at the crude map of the town provided makes it clear that Apple Lane is a very small place, as there are only about a dozen buildings present runequet the whole place, in addition to the orchards and public grazing ground.
Of course, it’s precisely this specificity that some might find off-putting. It represents a applle different strand of old school play than is often discussed, one much more concerned with world building and coherence than was the case in many other corners of the hobby at the time. That was a problem with my early play. The scenario states outright that Gringle has “ritual obligations” that demand he be elsewhere.
They don’t exist solely to interact with the PCs who come into the town and have need of their goods and services. It’s an interesting thing. The episode in which the expert attacked a ballistics gel torso with a Roman gladius a simple shortsword and hacked off both arms with his first two whacks convinced me that it is entirely realistic.
Plus the setup of “I am too busy to deal with an attack on my own pawnshop.
THE GREAT GAME: RuneQuest – more from Apple Lane!
Whereas that looks like a plot lne to me. Every inhabitant of the place is given a name and all adult inhabitants are given full RuneQuest statistics. Only a member of this blog may post a comment. I was leery of the pawnshop defense scenario so we did an expanded set of “initiation games” then went directly to the Rainbow Mounds.
In my more recent play, I changed things up a bit such that limbs don’t fly nearly so often. Apole July 14, at That’s more than you get in The Keep rinequest the Borderlandsbut nowhere near what Jim Raggi presented us with. Indeed, given that Apple Lane is, at least in part, intended to introduce new players to Glorantha, I can’t help but think it was intentionally written this ,ane in order to spur interest in the “secret stuff” the Issaries cultists are up to that demands Gringle’s full attention.
The Rainbow Mounds were awesome. In a setting other than Glorantha, this would seem implausible, but I can totally buy that a Runelord of Issaries can’t forsake the demands of his cult to protect his material livelihood.
Among the townsfolk, there are a couple or three cult connections that would serve well as an introduction to the greater setting.
Anthony July 14, at 3: How do I say this without ruffling someone’s feathers somewhere: The whole experience was a bit surreal to say the least. My problem with the assaulting gang was the weird diversity: Brunomac July 15, at 3: People of Pembrooktonshire is better: I ran this in June, but I am sorry to report that everybody found the attack on Gringle’s Pawnshop to be a howler. Invincible Overlord July 14, at Who’d play Runequest if they weren’t using Glorantha?
Apple Lane was originally published in as “Scenario Pack 2” for RuneQuestbut was revised in for inclusion runequezt the aforementioned boxed set. There are many like it but this one is mine!
