 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.

If you're interested in learning what's actually IN the book, I give a section by section breakdown on my blog: https://dscarpenter.wordpress.com/2020/06/09/whats-in-the-valley/

While the book isn't written for RQ:G, I think RQ GMs still might find all the setting information (which is half or more of the book) to be useful, especially if they're looking for a different culture to play that's till near the heart of the action Dragon Pass. Our Dundealos are Elmalians through-and-through, though they recognize Orlanth's claim to be "king of the gods."

Anyway, please give the blog a look if you're interested in learning more about the book!

Anyone know how a latecomer could get a copy of this work?!

We have heard in several posts that they are likely to bring the work back out on DrivethruRPG in the not-too-distant future. So, pretty much you need to wait.

So, in odd timed luck, we have put Valley of Plenty back up as it exists! You can find it right here at the Jonstown Compendium. If you already bought it, you have it. If not, you can always get it now and automatically get the new version when it is ready! As I said elsewhere, if you buy VoP before the newer, BIGGER version, you will will get said newer BIGGER (seriously, it's HUGE!) version as a free update! New version is also being adjusted to match the QW SRD. As will the sequel Rise of the Wildlings which mostly needs said adjusting before going off to the layout artist.

Will the new version also be PoD?

Yes, I am old and like to put post it notes, bookmarks, etc. in a book with a cover!

If we buy the book now we'll need to buy again as no one can afford giving free books away?

To Mr. Mohrfield point, if the new version is POD we could get the PDF now and wait for the book when the new version come out?

I am excited to see this either way! Thank you Mr. Class.

OK. Second Edition file is loaded. It should show in your library as having an updated file. No hardcopies available. If/when we do them later we will let you know! Enjoy 2 new cult write-ups (Eothril the Hunter and Armaeg the Warrior Healer) and a new adventure for each section along with new story seeds as well! Oh, and some never before seen art! Woot. 

After a small break we will dive into Rise of the Wildlings and there's a good chance it will drop before the new year. Just need to finish a few scenarios and collect art. But we have a personal project to get out first.
