Upcoming Glorantha publications


Recommended Posts

This is a totally unofficial list that I originally put together over on the (now-defunct) Glorantha G+ group. So details may be wrong but a lot of this has been officially confirmed (e.g. that the product is planned, though not when it will be released).

I thought I'd share it here, for fun and info.

Even though the original post is several years old, I try and keep abreast of things and keep it updated with new products (and delete items when they're released). Input on this is of course very welcome, because I may well miss things (since I'm not actually Lhankor Mhy).

Please note - each section is not in expected release order, unless otherwise specified.

 

HeroQuest: Glorantha / QuestWorlds

The Dragonrise, the “offstage” material from The Eleven Lights, for HQG - Ian Cooper
Fonrit setting book for HQG - Ian Cooper

 

RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha (RQG) (updated 25/10/20)

Upcoming releases in likely (but not guaranteed) order:

Red Book of Magic - every Rune and spirit magic spell of any cult of any size in Genertela
Starter Set - including Jonstown setting and 14 pre-gens. This is aimed at existing players and not just those new to RQ/Glorantha
Equipment and Weapons
Sartar Book and Dragon Pass Gazetteer
Cults Book and Prosopaedia - 100 long cult write-ups in two volumes

Other RQ releases coming later on:

The RQ Campaign - along the lines of the Boy King campaign for Pendragon

Upland Marsh
Pavis and the Big Rubble - by Robin Laws
Trollpak 2
Snakepipe Hollow
Holy Country (which might just be called Masters of Luck and Death)
Nomads of Prax- David Scott
Invisible God
Lunar Provinces 

 

Other items mentioned in the past but not recently (so these might still be coming, or plans might have changed, and even if they're coming they could be way off):

Elder Races book - 12 races 

Barbarian Town campaign pack - by Sarah Newton

Nochet - Harald Smith and others

Seapolis pack

Whitewall campaign pack

Heortland sourcebook

Kralorela sourcebook

Glorantha Quickstart booklet? - 48-page booklet, free PDF

Prince of Sartar (printed version of the online comic, once said online version finishes) - Kalin Kadiev and Jeff Richard
 
 
 
 
Upcoming reprints for existing products, officially confirmed
 
 
 
Apparently coming but no recent details, so probably some way off

The Red Book of Magic is its own book, and not the second volume of the Cults slipcase set. The two volumes of the Cults book will be about 400 pages each, and just contain cults and related material.

I think having setting books with no stats could be a good thing, and then have pdf releases of both HQ or RQ stats to go with the setting. Or at least if the setting books are produced for HQ, then have pdfs of RQ stats available and vice versa, considering the same company now has both systems for Glorantha.

I can't wait for the Holy Country and Notchet books to be produced, its gonna be exciting to see these regions detailed as much as Dragon Pass! Also if the Gods of Glorantha is anything like the quality of the Guide To Glorantha, then it'll be another milestone in the rpg industry.

Good times ahead !!!

There's the latest offering of Sun County coming too, this one set in the new timeline of the Hero Wars.

Maybe I'm forgetting something but I don't remember hearing about that. Have you got a source for that or any further info? Not doubting you, just trying to learn more because it sounds cool :D

The source of this rumour was from Design Mechanism, with MOB back in the driving seat on (re)writing it. However, this is before all the recent changes at Chaosium, so who knows where this is in the list - maybe in the 'More Speculative' category?

 MOB is writing it. Heard it on the Glorantha google+ page or Glorantha.com. Can't remember which.

ah ninja'd!

The Kraken seminar on upcoming Glorantha publications was mostly recorded by Fabian Kuechler, and might be in post-production now. I think you have most of the topics and subsequent Essen game fair developments covered, at least those without the gentlemen's NDA that got recorded.

You did miss out on the Kraken chapbooks which should have been made availale by now (at least as pdfs): last year's Robin Laws' Sharper Adventures for HeroQuest, and this year's transcript of Sandy's Secrets of Glorantha seminar from last year.

Thanks for the info on the Sun County book, guys.

Thanks, I've added in the Forgotten Secrets book now. The list is meant to be upcoming products though, and Sharper Adventures has been out for a while, so it's not on the list.

Gloranthan maps on an App that means I could fly through Glorantha? Fantastic. Doing it on my mobile phone? Not so good. I'd love this as an option for a Windows PC, though.

 

While it'ld be good on the PC, my tablet is a iPad Mini so I also want it in iOS so I can have it with me at the gaming table...what a great idea

I've got no plans to be writing a lot of Malkioni material in the near future, but I am perfectly happy with people making submissions for Malkioni material. The guidelines are simple:

  • Any proposal needs to be based on the Guide - anything that smacks of the pseudomedieval or pseudo-Christian Malkioni (with saints, pagans, etc) is going to get rejected. We already have plenty of pseudo-medieval fantasy settings out there, Glorantha is not one of them. The approach taken in The Book of Glorious Joy, Blood Over Gold, Men of the Sea, HQ1, or RQ3 is not going to be published. 
  • At this point it has to be based on HQG, as RQ and 13G are not written yet.
  • It needs to contain playable material based on the Guide, including scenarios (or ideally scenarios linked into game). I'm not terribly interested in publishing "fill-between-the-lines" lists of cults, spells, etc. 
  • It needs to do something new and novel, with themes and conflicts not present in Dragon Pass, the Holy Country, or the Lunar Empire.

I'm really looking forward to Red Cow and Trollpak! :)

The two Red Cow books are just flat out awesome and are in layout. We are redoing our layout templates and upping the awesome factor, but we are SUPER excited about this.

Trollpak just needs me to start commissioning art.

Woah! Hold on!

Does this mean that  Chaosium will now be doing separate rulebooks for RuneQuest: Glorantha.......... and RuneQuest 2?!

And, while I'm thinking about it, will RuneQuest: Glorantha follow a similar interior layout and design to Guide to Glorantha and HeroQuest: Glorantha? Will we be able to buy pdfs of all the RPG stuff?

Will the God's War board game be broadly compatible with Cthulhu Wars? What sort of games will the boardgames be like?

Finally, will there be much fiction in the line - including the comic presented as a graphic novel?

Excuse me while I mop the drool from my chin...
