The ideal companion to the best-selling A Rough Guide to Glamour.
This isn't a RuneQuest title, so I hadn't previously mentioned it in this forum, but reviewers have said nice things like:
  • "The character objectives, in particular, could give rise to numerous plots which could be used in a sandbox style campaign set in the Lunar Empire... It ought to be pretty much required reading for any GM intending to run adventures in the Empire. But even if you're not it's a fun read and will no doubt be useful as background for campaigns set in Sartar, Prax and elsewhere where the Lunars remain the major antagonists."
  • "Are you a Runequest fan? Buy this to get a new perspective on the blood-soaked wonder of Glamour."

I glanced at it when I bought it and thought that it would be great for RuneQuest NPCs, all a GM needs to do is add a few stats. But, from what I read, most of the plots don't involve the NPCs to be around, so you don't need stats for them.
