RQ Classic Kickstarter Update

Recommended Posts

The only Gloranthan Classic I was unable to get as a hardcopy was Pavis and Big Rubble (have the pdf), I was hoping they would reprint it but it looks like I might have to get the version from this Kickstarter instead.

Pledge, pledge, pledge for Soloquest!

If you want any of the PDFs for the unlocked stretch goals, don't forget to amend your pledge to add the relevant amount. That way it helps us get closer to the next goal.

We've just posted a new episode of our podcast Tales of Mythic Adventure. Have a listen if you'd like to learn more about the rare and unpublished items on offer in the RuneQuest Classic Kickstarter - it might help you make up your mind about backing at these levels.

9 days to go and we've now kicked over the 120K mark and 1400 backers, on the way to the next stretch goal - the SoloQuest Compendium, at 130K!

Please note, the "Old School RQ Source Pack" (consisting of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin, Balastor's Barracks plus Greg Stafford's unpublished scenario The Sea Cave) now has a PDF-only option.

Why, thank you very, very much!

The latest KS update from Rick features an excerpt from Steve Perrin's 4,500 word introduction to the RuneQuest Playtest Manuscript, and a "spot the goofs" scan of the RQ1 back cover (in his account Steve talks about the frantic rush to get it ready for Origins 1978 in the days before personal computers):

Final FOUR Days... just hit the 145K mark, so "Griffin Mountain" is the latest stretch goal achieved! Can we now get to "Pavis: Threshold to Danger"?

This recent interview with Rick Meints and Jeff Richard talks about the RuneQuest Classic Kickstarter and discusses the influence of RQ2, both in the history of the development of RPG design, and the new Chaosium edition of RQ in the works:

Just passed 2000 backers, and a bit over 5K will get us to Borderlands. 12 hours remaining...

As we're drawing close to the BORDERLANDS stretch goal we'll share a little-known Chaosium fact... one of the authors receiving equal billing on the Borderlands box (alongside such luminous names as Greg Stafford, Steve Perrin, Sandy Petersen et al) was a 12 year old kid.

One Friday back in 1979, unannounced, this kid knocked on Chaosium's door and showed some improvements he'd made for the RuneQuest rules. Steve Perrin liked what he saw and asked the boy to come back on Monday. This was his first paid gig. And that kid, Reid Hoffman, grew up to become a self-made tech billionaire...

59 minutes to go, currently just under 200K. If you want to pledge, better get in while you can... can we reach Trollpak, or will it be a troll bridge too far?...
