The Sea, The Sea – Gloranthan Ships for RQ6

Glorantha has inspired a largish variety of ships and maritime vessels over time. Most of the sources are out of print, out of date or incomplete. Some of them are not even canon anymore. I decided to gather all of the ships and maritime vessels that have been published and update them to the latest of the ship rules – the gem of a rulebook called Ships & Shieldwalls for RQ6.

Here are the ships The list contains also the physical size information about the ships that has been gathered from all the source material or extrapolated from other ships.

Sea and Chaos: These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Some of the more dangerous chaos things have still been missing in action for RQ Encounter Tool. Here is a gaggle – actually a Chaos Gaggle of them

They love a party so are usually always found together – to the detriment of characters who encounter them. These are based on Anaxial’s Annex version of them.

Here are some aquatic creatures for those who love adventures at sea.

In Kralorela there exist many kinds of Eastern Dragons – here is one variation of those

Aldryami forests are filled with creatures – here is one of the smallest of them

Lunar magicians can summon bodyguards – here is a relatively nasty variety of one of those that can be summoned
