Need to fix the layout

Recommended Posts

Was trying to talk someone through getting the quickstart pdf - didn't realize it was so hard to find!

https://www.chaosium.com/runequest-glorantha/ ...shows ONLY that the quickstart is available to buy for $9.95.

Only if you click on the book itself are you taken to https://www.chaosium.com/runequest-roleplaying-in-glorantha-quickstart/ where it says "oh, yeah, I guess you CAN download it for free, of course..."?

There needs to be a top-level, easy-to-find "(Free) Downloads" link on the Chaosium pages. Design Mechanism added one with their re-design and made it MUCH easier to navigate.

^ that's pretty much EXACTLY what I said?

The front page says nothing about there being a free download anywhere.  It only says "$9.95" (which is for the printed copy).

As I mentioned, yes, ONCE YOU CLICK ON THE DESCRIPTION, it's there.  But it's silly to hide that behind the landing page.  Have a second "offered" PDF Download "product" for $0.00.  Seriously, it would take about 15 seconds.

There is such page at - www.chaosium.com/free-downloads/ - but it's not updated, nor accessible from the parent directory (Home / Playing our Games / Organized Play). The best way should to be polite and ask for a tiny updated but I think they have their hand full at the moment...

 

Plus, It's a old rpg factory; If there is no challenge, there no fun ! and as far as I am concerned, as long as it's not at the level of BB Editions (Worst RPG website of the World) it's fine XD

Ahh there it is. There's room on that "secondary link toolbar" at the top to add a "Free Downloads" link, and that page does need to be updated with the RQG Quickstart PDF link.

...yeahNO.  While I am comfortably grognardian both as a gamer & computer-geek, I cannot endorse the notion that the retail website should be anything other than VERY easy to use & find things !   :angry:

If for no other reason than I want the line to be successful, so there are more RQ players, so I can play more RQ!  :D
