    RQG: Reviews Thread

    "The RuneQuest: Glorantha Bestiary opens up the world of Glorantha and Dragon Pass... Its combination of background and stats, friends and foes, supports Game Master and player alike and together serve to make (it) an essential companion to RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha."—Reviews from R’lyeh. https://rlyehreviews.blogspot.com/2019/05/gloranthan-friends-and-foes.html
  3. Our friends at TYPE 40 have forged a sword - a RuneQuest sword, inspired by the weapon being wielded on the cover of the RuneQuest Quickstart. We hope to have this wonderful weapon on display at Gen Con.
  4. RQ Companion now also available at DriveThruRPG: http://bit.ly/2YAgDFd
  5. 1983's RUNEQUEST COMPANION is now back in PDF, fully remastered and true to the original printing:https://www.chaosium.com/runequest-companion-pdf
  6. Escalation, the 13th Age fanzine, has a new special issue dedicated to 13th Age Glorantha. It features a scenario for 13G, "Under Pressure" by Ulf Bengtsson, and comes with five pregen characters. Download load it for free at the link: https://escalationfanzine.blogspot.com/2019/05/escalation-special-under-pressure.html
  7. We did a cheerful Starter Set swap with Wizards of the Coast's Mike Mearls. The package from WotC has arrived just in time for #DnDLive2019 - but which one to start with???
  8. As befits its antiquity, Sun County (Prax) has very powerful wyters - the four Guardians of the different directions. (There was also once as "Guardian of Above" and a "Guardian of Below", both of which make a reappearance in the post 1621 time-frame). Under RQG, I think the Sun County regalia would hold pools of Yelmalio rune points that the listed rune spells could be cast with.
  9. "Greg Stafford, who had already given us Glorantha, wrote his love letter to Sir Thomas Malory and 15th century Arthurian Romance. If Call of Cthulhu was Chaosium's greatest commercial success, this game was their greatest artistic one... If you like your games literary, thoughtful, and thrilling, Pendragon needs to be on your shelf."—Andrew Logan Montgomery reviews the 5.2 edition of Greg Stafford's self-avowed 'masterpiece'. https://andrewloganmontgomery.blogspot.com/2019/05/king-arthur-pendragon-52.html
