  1. Jonstown Jottings #1: Tales of the Sun County Militia: Sandheart Volume 1—A review of Jon Webb’s scenario for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha published by Chaosium, Inc. http://rlyehreviews.blogspot.com/2019/11/jonstown-jottings-1-tales-of-sun-county_29.html #reviewsfromrlyeh #rpgreview #rpgreviews #rpg #fantasy #Chaosium #RuneQuest #JonstownCompendium #JonstownJottings
  2. Jonathan Webb's third Sandheart scenario is out now in PDF from the Chaosium's Jonstown Compendium web store on DriveThruRPG: TRADITION. This book is lavishly illustrated, with artwork by Mark Baldwin, Kris Herbert, Jacob Webb, Ludovic Chabant and Beverley Webb, and cartography by Jonathan Webb, Diana Probst, Kris Herbert and Nick Brooke. I did the layout, because I loved reading the scenario so much when Jon sent it to me for feedback. My marketing spiel: "This scenario is just beautiful, it's pure Glorantha. You want a hero-questing dungeon-crawling police-procedural martial-arts siege situation, featuring weaponised bison, ninja raids, hot archival action and a hippy VW camper-rhino? Jon's got you covered.” Link: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/319251/Tradition-Sandheart-Volume-Three?affiliate_id=192945
  3.

Yours for the low, low price of 50 cents. Updated regularly. Link: Jonstown Compendium Scenarios & Sourcebooks

  5. Secrets of Dorastor is out and can be found at https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/318512/Secrets-of-Dorastor?affiliate_id=66807. A snip at $25.00 for 259 pages, it comes out as a Bargain on the Brooke Scale. There is a Table of Contents at http://www.soltakss.com/JC/StormSpearia-SecretsOfDorastor-TOC.pdf. From Nick's Scenarios: "Complexity: medium to high – a massive collection of material compiled from many years spent running RuneQuest games in Dorastor, including many self-consciously gross old-school elements – tips sadistic gamemasters can use to upset munchkin players, rules for “hyper-critical” hits, and a boyish enthusiasm for violated orifices, succubi and acid damage. The author writes with oblivious relish about this disturbing material." Secrets of Dorastor is a campaign pack set in the fabled land of Dorastor, in Greg Stafford's Glorantha. Inside you will find: A gazetteer of over one hundred places, with a map of Dorastor and nearby areas and maps of key places in Dorastor Descriptions of forty personalities, both of Dorastor and the surrounding Borderlands 25 types of Monster, of animal, vegetable and mineral types Write-ups of 9 Organizations RuneQuest write-ups of 8 Cults, including adapting the cult of Humakt to Dorastor New abilities for Illuminates and a description of Illumination and its various Schools 15 Magic Items Encounter Tables of all the important areas of Dorastor Sample Campaign and Scenario Hooks Extended RuneQuest rules for High Level Adventurers Tips for playing High Level Adventurers and NPCs Based on the write-up of our Dorastor Campaign, with a great deal of extra material, this covers the land and people of Dorastor and its Borderlands. WARNING: Dorastor is the most horrible part of Glorantha, a cursed land full of terrors. Secrets of Dorastor deals with extreme horror, with topics including violence, cannibalism, seduction, forced matings, ritual sacrifice and the liberal use of acid. Please do not purchase this if these themes might cause offense.
  6. TREASURES OF GLORANTHA VOLUME ONE — DRAGON PASS Treasures of Glorantha is an irregular series from Akhelas providing magic treasures, secrets, and gamemaster advice to enrich your game of RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. This inaugural volume lays eyes on the core game region of Dragon Pass. It describes thirty magic items found throughout Dragon Pass, curated to provide exciting play opportunities for players and gamemasters alike. In addition, this supplement has three articles delving into more detail relating to Gloranthan magic items: Treasure Among the Orlanthi discusses different ways players and gamemasters might handle receiving and distributing treasure in their game through the cultural lens of the Orlanthi of Dragon Pass. True Dragon's Blood explores the powers this exotic substance possesses—and the costs of wielding it. Finally, Medicine Bundles describes a plethora of magical options for shaman and assistant shaman adventurers—especially those from the Wastelands of Prax. You can get it here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/317421/Treasures-of-Glorantha-V1--Dragon-Pass?affiliate_id=546342 WHAT DO THE REVIEWS SAY? "Treasures of Glorantha: Volume One — Dragon Pass is a fantastic treatment of treasure in Dragon Pass, combining thoughtful and interesting essays on the subject with numerous relics to help the Game Master weave treasure into the fabric of her Glorantha campaign." — Matthew Pook, Reviews from R'lyeh
  7. Some folks have asked us to share notes from our playtest campaign for Valley of Plenty. If you were one of them, or even if you weren't, you can find Peggy's notes here: https://dscarpenter.wordpress.com/2020/06/11/valley-of-plenty-playtest-notes-1/ Enjoy!
  8. Valley of Plenty for sale! Click the link if you are so inclined. POD will be available as soon as we receive our proof copy. Valley of Plenty is a campaign source book for Glorantha written for the QuestWorlds rule-system. It is completely compatible with HeroQuest: Glorantha and easily adaptable for use with RuneQuest: Glorantha. The lovingly detailed presentation of the Dundealos tribe’s culture and community is system agnostic. Valley of Plenty is the first book of The Jaldonkillers Saga, a grand campaign that follows the careers of a band of player characters through the destruction of their tribe, its reconstitution in exile, and the effort to reclaim its lost lands and glory. The saga begins in 1602 and stretches to the Dragonrise and beyond. It is intended as a vehicle to support the development of characters from childhood to Herodom in a fluid but consistent setting, in which players can experience adventures ranging from slice-of-life challenges to world-changing conflicts. This book details the adventures of a closely-knit clique of youngsters, the Wildlings, from their early childhood through their adulthood rites. Along the way, GMs and players learn about the culture and community that produced the Wildlings in a natural, organic progression. Neither the GM or their players are forced to drink lore from a firehose. Valley of Plenty features: Detailed description of the Elmal worshipping Dundealos tribe and the Horse Orlanthi Learn the a Non-Orlanthi Sartarite culture by beginning play as a Dundealos child Alternate rules for creating child characters Organic development of PC community and family relationships Adventures with escalating risks based on character age Elmal-oriented adulthood rites of the Dundealos Cult descriptions for Elmal, Redalda, and Drogarsi from a non-Orlanthi perspective New shamanic tradition write-up, including spirit societies New cult: Andred Extensive player handouts based on character age 7 scenarios and 6 additional scenario seeds Buckets and buckets of frogs! Potential triggers in Valley of Plenty include: The interlude charts refer to the deaths of parents and/or siblings. If this is problematic, replace those results with ones of your own. The Manhunt episode revolves around a young boy who is kidnapped to be sold into slave labor. Player characters could face this threat as well. Note that the boy and PCs are in no danger of becoming slaves, but the threat is there.
  9. Available now from the Chaosium’s Jonstown Compendium webstore: the revised and expanded Rough Guide to Glamour. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/309765/A-Rough-Guide-to-Glamour?affiliate_id=392988 PRINT ON DEMAND version now available: premium colour hardcover, $29.95, comes bundled with the digital version.

This is a thoroughly revised and expanded edition of the original Rough Guide to Glamour, written by Chris Gidlow, Mike Hagen, Nick Brooke, Michael O’Brien, Jeff Richard, Greg Stafford and friends, lavishly illustrated by Dario Corallo, Simon Bray, Julie Hudson and other artists. Foreword by Jeff Richard, Chair and Creative Director of Chaosium Inc. A Rough Guide to Glamour was first published as a players’ background book supporting Reaching Moon Megacorp’s Life of Moonson, a 50-player live-action role-playing game that debuted in 1997 and ran in the United States, Europe and Australia.
  10. HEORTLINGS OF SARTAR This month's installment of Monster of the Month is now live! Monster of the Month is a series of new bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. In addition to statblocks and behavior, most entries include supplemental detail and advice for gamemasters and/or new adventurer options for players. Heortlings of Sartar is a collection of game aids for gamemasters of RuneQuest. Included in this supplement are 23 generic non-player characters, provided in a printer-friendly format for use at the game table. They range in importance from minor Rune Masters and clan elders, to humble bandits, stickpickers and thralls. You can find it here on DriveThruRPG. (Disclaimer: this is an affiliate link. If you buy anything over on DTRPG after clicking, I'll get a small percentage, which inevitably dribbles back into my art budget.)
  11. Six Seasons in Sartar, a coming-of-age RuneQuest campaign by Andrew Logan Montgomery, is available now from the Jonstown Compendium (144 pages, $19.95). And it’s brilliant. If you are at all interested in RuneQuest or Glorantha, buy this book. It’s an introductory campaign to get new players into RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, extensively playtested and beautifully presented. It contains episodes and scenarios that can be plugged into any game set in Sartar: you don’t have to be children of the Haraborn clan to use this book. It contains background on and fully worked examples of heroquesting, one of the more confusing aspects of Gloranthan games, fully integrated into the life of the Haraborn clan - which is presented in cult writeup format, because cult is culture, don’cha know? (Genius idea) It has neat tricks for presenting NPCs, inc. a Rune-rating based personality notation schtick I will shamelessly steal for my own future works, and is framed within a wonderful metafictional conceit that has liberated me to think the previously unthinkable. tl/dr: Buy this book. Thank me later. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/313871/Six-Seasons-in-Sartar?affiliate_id=392988

  13. OK, I’ve just uploaded my new short RuneQuest scenario to the Jonstown Compendium: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/307504/The-Duel-at-Dangerford?affiliate_id=392988 It's called The Duel at Dangerford. The scenario itself is a couple of dozen pages long, and since only gamemasters and confirmed non-combatants are ever likely to pick it up, I thought it’d be a good place to share some colourful ideas I came up with for The Smoking Ruin and The Dragon of Thunder Hills as appendices. Rated the "Hottest Community Content" on DriveThruRPG! "This is wonderful. The absolute love for the setting hits you straight in the mouth." -- Michael Kirkbride, Concept Artist & Writer for Morrowind.
  14. I thought some of the folks here on the forum might want to see the introduction page for the Jonstown Compendium book Peggy Carpenter and I are working on. We expect to release it in two or three weeks (the long Memorial Day weekend took some of the wind out of our sails). I'm really happy with the work that Dixie (our layout guru) did on the page design! I hope you like it, too. If you have any questions about the book, don't be shy!

Monster of the Month is a series of new bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha.

  17. On behalf of Beer with Teeth, a roleplaying and publishing collective, I'd like to say hello. And now that's over, hello from me too. I'm Diana, RPGer and longtime GM, and recent author of my first published scenario https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/300087/Rocks-Fall, updated with an expansion and troll snuggle cover for Valentine's Day. If you want to know more about me, just know that I'm the one who chose the troll snuggle picture. We have more in the works, and we're looking forward to using the Jonstown Compendium heavily. I've run rules-light narrative-heavy systems for years, and until I found RQ:G I never thought I'd find a rules-heavy narrative-immersed system that was so damned good. I was a near-instant convert. Any other JC contributors out here? I know of a few already, but putting alternative names to faces is good.
  18. I've published the first installment in my Monster of the Month series! Monster of the Month is a series of new bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha.

The first installment, Spirits of Madness, is available on DriveThruRPG here. This new bestiary entry includes: Description of the behavior, powers, & possible locations of madness spirits Gamemaster advice on using disease spirits The Madness disease, and sample afflictions ranging from paranoia to chaophilia An example narrative describing an adventurer's combat with a madness spirit
  19. While I'm aware that RuneQuest has a long history of fan publications and that many folks around here have been involved in doing so, as a comparatively new member of the tribe I really don't know well who does, and wants to do, what sorts of work. With the recent advent of the Jonstown Compendium, it seemed to me wise to build a list of community members interested in freelancing. In particular, since people involved in the RuneQuest & Glorantha fan communities are more familiar with the setting and content norms than others. So here's what I suggest: if you're interested in being contacted through the forums to collaborate on community content products, add a comment noting what work you'd like to do, and I'll add that information to this topic post for ease of access. For example, writing scenarios, editing, proofreading, B&W art, color art, cartography, graphic design & layout, general critique, playtesting, and so on. Note: no guarantees are made regarding the quality of work or compensation requested by persons listed below. This is a networking resource for content creators, not a marketplace.

  20. Hello all! I've got a short adventure written, titled The Throat of Winter, which I intend to publish with Chaosium's forthcoming Jonstown Compendium. I'm looking for one or two volunteer groups to playtest it and provide their thoughts. While it's not the first adventure I've written, it is the first I've put together with other people using it in mind. The adventure is set during winter, during the latter half of Dark season and the first half of Storm season. It's based on a site, the titular cave, which I've placed in the Starfire Ridges of the Colymar tribe's lands. However, the adventure is pretty modular, and I think it should be usable anywhere in Dragon Pass. I believe the adventure should be suitable for use with the pregenerated adventurers (Vasana et al) but I'd prefer to know how it interacts with house adventurers. I've also tried including suggestions for ongoing play as part of a campaign set in Apple Lane. Here's my current draft of the back cover copy: Winter descends on Dragon Pass. When the child Rolf goes missing while checking on his family sheep after a blizzard, his parents Rastolf and Serla become frantic. They come to the village of Apple Lane begging for help from any who will listen. They come seeking any who will brave the wind and snow of winter to find a little boy. They come seeking adventurers. This site-based adventure is intended to provide one to three sessions of RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha play for four to six beginning to intermediate adventurers. While it is integrated into the Colymar campaign provided in Chaosium's Gamemaster Screen Pack, this adventure is designed for use in any Dragon Pass campaign.
