Many of you will be the proud owners of a RuneQuest 1st Edition PDF since this morning. What do you think? What differences have you spotted between this and RQ2? This is the first time I've seen one of these, other than a quick flip through someone else's copy many years ago. While I haven't had a chance to look at it in any level of detail, the thing that immediately jumps out at me is the difference in quality between RQ1 and RQ2. Admittedly I'm going by the Games Workshop RQ2, which was great in production terms. RQ1 has layout and typesetting that are (charmingly, in my nostalgic opinion) reminiscent of those early wargame or role-playing booklets of the 70s. The tables inserted in the text appear to have been produced with a constant-spacing tyepace, a bit like the older versions of forum software used in order to make columns line up. I have spotted at least one piece of Luise Perrin art that doesn't appear in RQ2, perhaps because it was considered a little on the risque side (p.14)?
