  1. Cost of Iron

    Another source of iron is salvage from the twisted wreckage of Zistorite war machines, buried in the sands or submerged in the shallow waters of the God Forgot archipelago. Although potentially lucrative, retrieving this metal is a very dangerous enterprise, for a variety of reasons (giant cranes, swarming were-crabs, one-armed bandits, let alone the traps and surprises the Zistorites left behind). It is rumored that this metal, predating the cataclysmic end of the so-called "Iron Wars", has special properties, making it different to Iron sourced in the Third Age.
  2. Stats for NPCS: Starbrow, Fazzur, Argrath, etc

    Sounds like it was more a case of quality and incompleteness than copyright, though that may have reared its head in due course if things had proceeded. The full story (from Greg's perspective at least - Dave Hargrave having passed away in 1988) is here: https://www.acaeum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?cache=1&p=58553#p58553
  3. EN World is actively encouraging guest columnists! Although EN World might be best known for its DnD coverage they are actively trying to broaden their reach across the RPG sphere, and we are happy to support them in this worthy aim. They've covered RuneQuest quite a bit recently (frex, see here: http://bit.ly/2hHue9Z) and Glorantha often gets a mention (http://bit.ly/2ieWsNn). Chris Helton of EN World says, "the program is always looking for people who love #RPG games of all sorts and can communicate effectively", so if that's you why not have a go?

  7. Frank Menzter's Empyrea

    The new rules.
  8. Jason Thompson is the artist who created those cool Dungeon Walkthrough Maps you might have seen. And he's now created one for the most iconic Call of Cthulhu adventure of them all, "The Haunting". It's part of this new Kickstarter comic anthology, Advanced Death Saves, celebrating tabletop gaming and the beloved characters who get killed off during play. Kickstarter runs for another 29 days and is off to a good start.
  9. Frank Menzter's Empyrea

    Our friend, the gaming legend Frank Mentzer recently launched a Kickstarter for his Empyrea fantasy setting - this is an ambitious project opening up one of the classic RPG fantasy settings to many different game systems (including RuneQuest, Pathfinder, and plenty of others). Frank has assembled an illustrious team of guest authors and artists to work on this project, which has been 40 years in the making. We encourage you to take a look at this - and as always, if you like what you see, please support it!
  10. New Kickstarter - THE DARE from Sentinel HIll Press

    Just a day to go for "The Dare" Kickstarter from our friends at Sentinel Hill Press - back it while you can! It's shot through a swag of stretch goals already and is closing on the next one, which offers up Kevin Ross's original notes for the scenario: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/562089942/the-dare-a-call-of-cthulhu-1-shot-revised-for-7th
  11. <20 hours to go in the Kickstarter!
  12. Just under 20 hours to go for the licensed RuneQuest Quickstarter Miniatures Kickstarter, by our friends Infinity Engine. There are backer levels from cardboard stand-ups right through to fully-painted sets where you can customise the colors! And with all the original stretch goals blitzed through, Richard has unlocked plenty more with a Great Troll, a Dragonewt, a Rubble Runner, a Morokanth, a Rock Dwarf, a Jack-o-Bear, a Broo and a Duck with crossbow on offer. Check it out while you can! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/infinity-engine/runequest-quickstarter-miniatures
  13. Any news on the launch of the new RQ?

    Excellent idea!
