Brian Duguid Posted July 16, 2022 Report Share Posted July 16, 2022 I have just published this book on Jonstown Compendium. 159 pages and just over 100,000 words on the Hsunchen totem animal peoples of Glorantha. Priced at $16.99. This book is aimed at anyone who is interested in the Hsunchen. The Hsunchen inhabit the fringes of Gloranthan geography and include some of the most peculiar and fascinating peoples in this world. Because they mostly live far away from mainstream society they are often obscure and poorly documented, and perhaps rarely encountered in many RuneQuest games. Twenty-one Hsunchen tribes living in the western and central parts of the continent of Genertela are described across the space of 158 pages, alongside extensive information regarding their culture, myth, technology, magic and more. The book explains how to create a Hsunchen adventurer, gives tips on using them as adventurers or as non-player characters, ideas for high-level campaigns, and even information on Hsunchen Heroquesting! Appendices provide the author's notes, answers to Hsunchen Q&A, a spells index, Hsunchen mega-list and more. The tribes included are (in order of appearance): skunk, black owl, mammoth, badger, raccoon, bear, bobcat, wolverine, reindeer, yellow quill porcupine, moose, mountain goat, fallow deer, giant beaver, horse*, wolf, opossum, boar, elk, lion and puma*. (*sure, debate if you want!). I am hugely grateful to @Diana Probst, Kristi Jones, Robert Meyer and @M Helsdon for their art, and to various others on this forum and elsewhere who provided input or simply pointed me in the right direction. And of course to the Chaosium team for creating these opportunities for community authors and artists. If you have any comments or corrections, feel free to send me a private message via this forum. http://tiny.cc/TCoH 16 Quote -- The Electrum best-selling The Children of Hykim documents Glorantha's shape-changing totemic animal people, the Hsunchen.
