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.

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.
