Exigers of Pamaltela in RQ6 – on the trail of Jeff Okamoto Campaign Log

I have long been fascinated by Jeff Okamoto’s campaign log of the epic Sandy Petersen campaign ranging from Pavis to Pamaltela. Years and years ago the original manuscript was on sale at Convulsion (somewhere in the 90’s) and even while fiercely trying with a friend of mine (hi Nigel) we could not get enough money together in the auction to purchase it. Luckily few years ago the manuscript became publicly available.

One of the highlights of the log was the exiger campaign. Now with some new information unearthed by Guide to Glorantha and the wonderful community at Google+ Glorantha forum I put together the exigers for Runequest 6 Encounter Generator.

Exigers are a group of fierce mountain clans in Mari Mountains in Pamaltela ruling over their Menial slaves who farm and live in the valleys while exigers trade with outsiders.

First exigers depicted here are Humakt worshippers. Very few of them actually ride horses – usually there are not enough horses to equip the men at arms. Some  tribes have ‘tamed’ mountain trolls – they gray giants in the Okamoto log.

All exiger at initiate level and higher are usually the original exigers each commanding half a dozen men at arms who usually have been flocking together to the fortresses of the exigers. Sometimes the exigers have a sorcerer with them.

Guide to Glorantha has a picture of an exiger at page 588.

Menials are slaves of the exigers who have been forbidden to use arms. They have been using staves and unarmed combat to defend themselves. Menials know of friendly shamans in the mountains – of whom the exigers are wary of.

Added also Doraddi Hair color and Appearance – Doraddi Skin to the additional feature tables and Exiger Tribes to party additional feature tables.

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
