Upcoming Plans

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen much in the Chaosium blog about upcoming RQG material.

I realize that the company has to support a whole menu of games, but is there any word on upcoming RQG releases? From a player standpoint, we could really use some scenarios to work with. For all of us who've been playing in the 1620 ST timeframe, the Dragonrise and liberation of Sartar has created some great conflict, but it's a bit tough to get a handle on scenario-wise.

This is my running list of upcoming RQG releases based upon an original Facebook post by either Jason or Jeff and updated from various sources:

@Sumath --

That's a great list!  A couple of them (Praxpak, Trollpack) were, last I knew, still "on the fence" between RQG or HQG... Do you recall them being definitively stated as having joined the RQ hero-band?

Also, some of those projects appear to be VERY forward-looking, and may not make it to a final project, or may morph to unrecognizability before they do...

Because, y'know, stuff happens.  RL scores a critical hit, and gaming takes the fall.  I recall a BRP "Noir Detective" (not Cthulhu) game that apparently had lots of excitement at Chaosium and they were talking about / tease'ing online & at 'Cons... but RL, and it's not happening any more.

Still and all, a great list to see!  TYVM!

In the original Facebook post (Sept or Oct 18), which was specifically about Runequest releases, two Trollpak volumes were mentioned, so I'm assuming that all three will be for RQG. Not so sure about Praxpak though.

There were some other items mentioned for which there was no solid plan and which "may go somewhere or be in development for years. Or be vapor." These were:

Elder Races Adventurer Pack
RuneQuest Grimoire
"The Great RuneQuest Campaign"
Lunar Empire Sourcebook
The Invisible God Sorcery Book

There was also mention of the fact that half a dozen RQ Fantasy Earth books were in development, but there were no specifics on these.

Actually, given that Jeff recently said that RQG was now one of the pillars of Chaosium, I'd expect most Gloranthan releases to be RQG compatible. Certainly it's easier to convert a RQG scenario to HQG than the other way around.

As a RQ fan, I certainly prefer RQ content I can play directly!

The day they opened orders for RQG was, I think MOB said, the single biggest day of webstore sales ever recorded by Chaosium; and they ran out of stock (as I understand it) MUCH faster than they expected to.  So it's going gangbusters for them!
