Ehnval Tallspear

Monster of the Month — Volume 2, Issue 5 — May 2021

For the last two Rune Masters of this six-issue MOTM run, our attention turns to the Elder Races of Glorantha. This supplement presents Ehnval Tallspear, a stern Wood Lord of Aldrya. Found near his native woods north of Esrolia, his description includes advice and adventure seeds for the gamemaster for use as either friend or foe.

In addition to describing Ehnval, this issue includes:

  • Treasures galore, from a collection of minor Elvish Trinkets to a description of the Living Copper cultivated in dryad groves and rarely seen by humankind.
  • A cast of peculiar side characters—Andovar, a lovelorn Yelmalion elf, the irascible Ancient Runner, and the talking bear Borulgus.

This supplement is designed to be useful for RuneQuest players who only have the core rulebook. It is recommended that the gamemaster also have the Glorantha Bestiary. Familiarity of the Aldryami section of that work will enrich your experience with Ehnval Tallspear.

About this Series: Monster of the Month is a series of bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. In addition to statblocks and behavior, most issues include supplemental detail and advice for gamemasters and/or new adventurer options for players.

How does one rate something that's never been rated before? I'd like to give this 5 stars but I can't figure out how to do so!

First, thank you for the compliment! I really appreciate it.

Using the "Reviews" tab above this discussion section, you should be able to leave ratings or reviews. If that doesn't work, I think you can do so as well from the "All titles awaiting review" option, in "My Library" on your Account page. That page should also give options both for leaving a quick rating, or for leaving a review.

Hope that helps, and once again - thank you!!

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
