Hi there, Researching in Internet Archive, i have found the original Mongoose RuneQuest I (MRQ I) SRDs for download. Browse down to Free Downloads section and look for SRD. https://web.archive.org/web/20090413001742/http://www.mongoosepublishing.com:80/home/series.php?qsSeries=39 Internet Archive is a magical and important tool these days. One can browse back to the past and read / download old stuff... ___________________________________________________ --- ALERT -- ACHTUNG -- ALERT -- ACHTUNG --- After a long discussion (and some unnecessary words), we realize that MRQ-I SRD (2006) is no longer legally valid, since both text/rules and trademark belonged to Issaries at that time (now Chaosium). And since OGL grants perpetual rights, and Mongoose was not capable to ensure perpetuity because she was not entitled to do so, this SRD SHOULD NOT BE USED in public (commercially or not). But you can use in private, for study or gaming. Moon Design bought RQ rights from Issaries. Moon Design bought Chaosium and transfered rights back to Chaosium. From Chaosium FAQ: Q: Can I rely on the Mongoose RQ SRD to publish material? A: No. Mongoose’s license for RuneQuest was terminated in April 2011. At that point, Mongoose lost all rights to continue using the RuneQuest trademark, or to create and publish material derivative from the previous copywritten material, or to issue any sublicenses based on that agreement. Since Mongoose no longer had any rights to RuneQuest, it has no ability to issue a third-party license to that material (which is all an OGL is).
