  1. With Pavis and Big Rubble sets passing through the shop, I made a post today introducing these classic Runequest boxes to a wider D&D audience. They really are a pair, and I love that Chaosium graphically matched the sets. More photos over at my blog post. -Wayne PAVIS & BIG RUBBLE (1983): Basecamp and Vast City Ruins for Runequest RPG
  2. Wonderful article. Added a link to your page from my post.
  3. Thanks for the edition info! Didn't know about the hardcover.
  4. Following up on my earlier Runequest German edition post, today I've got the French edition of the RQ RPG. And she is a beauty. -Wayne Full post at my photoblog: RUNEQUEST: French language edition (late 80s)
  5. Fully-titled RuneQuest Collector’s Edition: Das Fantasy-Rollenspiel, I had a customer ask about the cover artist of this book. The photos that resulted, I just posted to my game blog. It's a German language edition of RQ3 (I believe), the Avalon Hill version. Full post: RUNEQUEST: German language edition (1991)
  6. Over at my blog, I've added a follow-up to my post on the classic Chaosium Ringworld RPG. The original RW set was packed, so full that material had to be removed for space reasons. And so the Ringworld Companion (1984) was published separately with all the missing information. Together, they represent one of the largest-scale RPG settings ever. Lots of art and data that would appeal to fans of the original scifi fiction series by Larry Niven. -Wayne
  7. Yes good point. I noted the measurements as 15½” x 23¼” (UK), vs. 20″ x 30″ (US), and - like the Game Workshop book - the GW maps is of a glossier paper stock.
  8. I recently edited a blog post from 2016 that I think would be of interest to readers here. I had both US and UK editions of Griffin Mountain in the shop at the time, so I took some side-by-side pics. They are mostly the same, but one edition is definitely better from a longevity standpoint. -Wayne Full post: Griffin Mountain (Runequest, 1981): US and UK editions
  9. Avalon Hill is a great edition too. I believe it has the same map as Elric 2e.
  10. One of those rare instances where I have multiple editions passing through the shop, so I took some side-by-side pics of the old school ELRIC Game, 1977 and 1981 editions. Made for some striking photos. -Wayne Full Post: Elric Board Game 1st & 2nd editions side-by-side (Chaosium: 1977 / 1981)
  11. Classic Runequest RPG books (ca 1980-3) that hit the shelves today! Thought y'all would enjoy some old school cover art. Also updated most of the photos over at my RQ RPG Reference site page this morning.
  12. I was curious how extensive were the changes RQ1 --> RQ2, and they seem substantial. I thought the update might just be shine andpolish.
  13. I just wanted to say I'm grateful for this thread. RQ1 was a bit of a mystery to me, and this helped answer some questions.
  14. I appreciate the behind-the-scenes info here and at the blog, Rick. Thank you.
