Maybe - just maybe - I can be persuaded to sell a few of the current two-volume manuscript at GenCon, but there's need to be significant interest.

Please, more than a few.

Also, if that is a taste of the art, then we'll wait patiently.

Getting up from the pile of vegetables he shakes of a few stray pieces and picks up a turnip and begins to crunch it down...

An old version was sold last year at GenCon. It was MUCH smaller than the current version, and a lot has been revised even in the material that was included.

Gods and Goddesses will take a while because it has a LOT of art, and it gets updated as I realise additional information is needed to support scenarios, etc. And of course the art. You think RQG looked good?

I would be all over buying another Gencon preview of anything you might care to share.

Given that you have a business model of publishing your work as PDF's(with a discount for the hard copy) before the hard copy is available, is there a reason you don't make available the draft text's without art work under the same model?

Now THAT is an interesting idea! I'm sure there are good reasons not to though... off the top of my head...

  1. Reviews will come out before the final product is ready, and will not mention the great art, and then when the art is done the "second wave" reviews will not get as many eyes
  2. Changes to the text will mean that people use information in their games that then gets "ruined" by the final text
  3. Some people might buy it and gripe that production standards have fallen giving Chaosium a bad reputation for slipping standards
  4. Retailers and other outlets like Drivethru will be upset that Chaosium is taking their sales

How much interest are we talking here?  I'm extremely, very much, significantly interested.  And I'll coincidentally be at GenCon.

I believe the normal price is your immortal soul.

Inflation seems a bit steep, they were selling preview copies of RQG for $50 or so a couple of years ago.

That depends on the quality of your soul.

No matter, I'd have to pay the monetary equivalent anyway.  Ontologically speaking who really knows what an immortal soul is and if they truly exist, much less their value.

Yep, this is how much my preview copies of both RQG and GoG ran.

I don't collect souls, but do accept US dollars or Euros.

Perhaps these offers could be brokered through your associate... one "Mr. Meints," I believe?  (Or so he is reported through Interpol channels).

He is rumored to be something of a... collector...

No, no, he is a collector of rare Nikes, a sole collector , one might say...

Oh, I thought you might mean he was a collector of victories.

Is he the only one?

Collector of Nikes?  No one really know, but probably not.  Collector or RuneQuest and Gloranthania?  Definitely not, but possibly the most prolific.

Wasn't it rather Harvester, or Reaper? If you drop the first e, this looks like photovoltaic.

More jaw dropping art... wonderful!

There is only ONE thing i don´t like in this picture: Why is the head of the dragon Oralanth showes of a eastern dragon? 
But it just a personal matter, i generally dislike anything chinese/japanese/kralorelan/etc. in my games.

If you are prepared to dig about on ebay you can get some old white dwarf adventures for RQ3, mostly from issues 80-100. You can also can get tradetalk magazine from drivethru.rpg that have some RQ3 and HQ adventures. 

My collection includes pretty much everything that's ever existed, including most if not all of those issues.  But we've been playing for 20 years.  The well has all dried up, and I don't have the time I once did to write new stuff from scratch.
