The latest supplement for RuneQuest 6, Shores of Korantia, is available to pre-order. This setting and campaign book is based in the world of Thennla, first introduced in Age of Treason: the Iron Simulacrum. With completely new content designed specifically for RuneQuest 6th edition, Shores of Korantia focuses on the many city-states of the Korantine Empire and is a comprehensive, yet accessible, introduction to Thennla. It contains rules for character creation, social class, Korantine magic and cults, ships and sea combat, encounters for both land and ocean, and three scenarios that form a linked campaign.

Shores of Korantia is a must-have addition to the growing RuneQuest catalogue. 240 pages, fully bookmarked and indexed, and only $30 for the hardcover+PDF, or $15 for the PDF on its own. Visit our store at http://www.thedesign...110&id=36451441 to order your copy.

Delivery of the finished book will be (approx) 10th June 2014.

Ordered hardcover + pdf.

Waiting on hardcover, but after checking through the pdf I'm happy to say I really like what I see. Totally love the ancient world flavour, very 'classical', you can really get the bronze age feel for the setting. I would love to see this setting supported, it has great potential. I'm itching to see more of it, and also itching to see what Design Mechanism rolls out with Adventures in Glorantha. The two settings have similarities, and the ancient flavour really is the 'sweet spot' for RQ6.

By the way, does anyone have a release date for AiG? I'm hopefully expecting The Guide For Glorantha to be released via Kickstarter within the next few months, and I know that the HeroQuest Glorantha book will follow, so I'll be really hanging out for the RQ6 AiG version. Especially want to see a focus on various Malkioni cultures, considering they are much less medieval in portrayal now, so I want to get them right

Back to topic, 'Shores of Korantia' is an excellent ancient world setting, highly recommended, it really makes me want to ditch my ongoing Cthulhu campaign and run RQ6 quite soon...
