New products för RQG?

Recommended Posts

I wonder when we can expect new scenarios and campaign books for RQG? When the new rules where announced to come out we heard talk about a plan for releasing new content every other month. It now feels like we have the most beautiful rule books in history (I really love them) but very little content to play with. If Chaosium have to choose between high quantity with good quality or low quantity with excellent quality I really prefer the former.

There's plenty of content you can play with - all the RQ2 (Classic) material, for example. The RQ Classic reprints give you years' worth of playing material on their own.

At the Dragonmeet seminar last weekend, Jeff and Jason made it clear that there's absolutely tons of new stuff in the pipeline. But they're working on getting all the main rules and background stuff (e.g. GM Sourcebook, Cults of Glorantha and Red Book of Magic) in place before they un-stop the dam and let the flood forth.

The next three products for release contain playable content: The Smoking Ruins (scenarios and sand box), Pegasus Plateau (mini-scenarios/encounters) and the Runequest Starter Set, which will contain a write-up of Jonstown. I'd guess we'll see the first of these as a PDF release in early 2020.

Thanks for the replies and I hope that you all are right. I know that there is a lot of old material. But at the same time I really like the new way of creating characters for a later year in Dragon Pass. I think that most new players are hesitant to rework old scenarios.

They also said that they want to be where Call of Cthulhu is now, with a release every 2 months, and think they can achieve this by mid-next year.

In the meantime, the Jonstown Compendium should have lots of goodies.

Something that would be a worthwhile endeavor (Jonstown Compendium, maybe?  Or just a fan collaboration here...) would be to extend Family-Background Tables in several ways...

Go 25-30 years back, making Background Tables to create RQG PC's for play in RQ2/RQClassic era of Glorantha.

Create other-culture backgrounds (I know these are coming, but they look to be quite a ways out...).

Create Elder-Race Background tables (with similar detail to the humans (also likely to be coming; but AIUI even further out)).

We really need the GM book and the Cults book in order to make the rules-set complete (as well as the long-awaited rule-book errata).

The rest is gravy. Nice gravy probably, but even so...

Do you have a review planned for the Rune Blog?

I hope I can review most of them, starting with this one! 😋

For the first one, there's a thead about this here.

For the second, I assume you're talking about new Homelands?

For the third one, yes, Jason confirmed there will be full elder race character creation in an upcoming book.

I had seen that "1610's" thread as it began, but never saw the summary and posted doc -- thanks for pointing it out (and of course, many thanks to @Puckohue !!! )

I'd happily edit it with the template and submit it for the Jonstown Compendium, but I'd have to start with getting permissions from the other authors. I've expanded it a little for Sartarite characters, and used it in my campaign set in 1615.

The doc is linked in that thread; do you have more work not in that doc?

I don't want to step on any authors' toes (or rights), but I think it should get the widest possible distribution!
