OK, so people are now digesting the Cults books, the scale of the launch, and just how beautiful these books are going to be. One of my goals on these is that they allow you to really expand the setting and your options – within are pretty much everything Greg or I knew that was pertinent about those all cults, presented in a game-friendly manner.
The Prosopaedia and Mythology books are particularly special to me. The Prosopaedia is my go-to reference book for any cult. When Jason asks – “hey Jeff who is Bakan the Boar?”, I go to the Prosopaedia. Think of it as the Guide to Gods and Heroes.
Once these are all out, you will have more access to more information and material than all the old of print material put together. Want to play a Ygg cultist? Easy peasy! Want to play a Aleshmara cultist? That’s there as well. Want to really understand how all those Lightbringer cults fit together? Now you can.
There’s just so fricking much coming it blows my mind! So sit back, and enjoy. And remember, we might have some surprises at Chaosium Con as well!
What is a Prosopaedia ? An encyclopedia of gods, heroes, and demons.
Will mention of Rune Priests or Rune Lords for cults that no longer have both be preserved, or will we still need Cults of Prax for some of those details? Not all cults have Rune Priests AND Rune Lords. Most do not. You are welcome to do what you want, but Greg long ago decided that relatively few cults have both (Orlanth, Yelm, Yelmalio, Kyger Litor, Waha, and a few others). In that regard RQ2 is superseded. Most cults only have Rune Priests, a few only have Rune Lords. Almost purely martial cults like Babeester Gor, Humakt or Storm Bull rarely have Rune Priests. They don’t really do a ton of ceremonial interaction, but are there to be the gods in the world.
