Thanks, Ian. That answers my question. I'll probably give HQ a look when it comes out just because I love Glorantha so much, but I suspect it'll be the same. I actually have a group that I play with on rare occassion, but it is rare and they are more into crunchy systems as well. Drama and story take a back seat to detailed action. In any event, thanks for the info!
