Name list for RuneQuest


Alfred the snake has no business here.

An article at the Gnome Stew advocates the use of name lists to facilitate coming up with good character names that sit well inside a setting, both for GM's naming NPC's and new players generating characters.  I went out looking for some good Celtic, Norse and Germanic names for both boys and girls!  That's over 500 of them!

MRQ2 / Glorantha 3rd age Demo PC's

Here are the four characters I prepared for the demo game Friday night at the club house.  I painted them over the last week, they need a bit of touching up here and there, but look allright nevertheless.
The first one is Adaken of the Hiording, a Scholar from the Angarorl household, acolyte of the Lhankor Mhy guild, looking for the egg of a scorpion man.  He's an experienced magician with some healing skill.
This ginger lass is Grimhildir, the daughter of a Hiording Huscarl and champion of the Colymar.  She's a tough fighter and Acolyte of Vinga, with some potent healing spells.  She is trained to fight in pairs.
Grimolf is the son of hunters from the Jarnolf bloodline.  He is a good fighter, with excellent survival skills, and a good tactician.  He is a young barbarian, aged 25.
Eyildir is another Vinga maiden, age 21, initiate to the cult, and a professioinal mercenary who used to work as a bodyguard to a Tarsh trader.  She has seen most of Dragon Pass.  She has been trained in fighting as a pair and has some notion of tactics.

A lot of work remains to be done: cleaning walls and floor, painting walls and floor, setting up the cabinets…

Entry for the Pendraken 10 mm compo

Pendraken has organized a 10 mm sculpting contest.  Subject is a dungeon monster.  I started with the armature of a little monster that will haunt the dungeondwellers during their sleep.  It will have a elephantlike snout for sucking brains out of unsuspecting sleepers – or wounded adventurers, for that matter.  THe top wire will become a large fang, not unlike the rhino beetle.

Here is step 2: using procreate I sculpted on the basic body shape.  It’ll be on high legs, fast and stealthy, and a decent climber.
