RuneQuest Sword - fit for a rune lord (TYPE 40)

Recommended Posts

Our friends the master prop makers at TYPE 40 are making RuneQuest swords, modelled on the sword from the cover of the RuneQuest Roleplaying in Glorantha Quickstart - here's the first one, fit for Rune Lord!

Pretty!  Hmmm, no scabbard.  What do you sheath it in?  An anvil atop a stone that mysteriously appeared in the churchyard on Christmas Day?

Nice!!!

a) are they sharpened or blunted?

b) what accessories? Stand? Scabbard? Plaque?

c) what do they weigh?

d) 100% bronze?

e) if you happen to know, will they customise? In particular, Runes and their locations...

and, of course, f) pricing?

 

(should I point out that if it was "fit for a Rune Lord", then it should actually be made of iron? Or gold, or copper, or silver or some other Rune Metal.... :D:D:D)

The Rune-Lord was carrying something to get themselves to that level of experience. I know my Humakti still has his heavily enchanted Bronze Broadsword on him all the time, even just for status and magic.

Blunted, fairly obviously from the photo.

No, because bronze *is* a Rune Metal 🗡️

I see the tip, but not an edge. I'm also asking if they'll all be like that... Or some will be "battle ready"?

I do love it! If I had the money and space, I'd definitely be buying!!

When I first read this thread title, I immediately recalled an old fanzine article for RQ2 called 'Rune Blades', I think it was in an old White Dwarf magazine from the early '80s.

I remember it was about swords foe cult heroes, imbued with powers associated with the Runes. I would like to stumble across that article again, it probably could be just as relevant with RQG as it was with RQ2.

Wow, yeah that was it. I had it in my collection, it was pretty good. I'll have to hunt it down, thanks for the link

Did... did you just remember that? 😮

Yes, I've committed all the boardgamegeek URLs for RuneQuest magazine articles to memory. It's the only way. If only there were some kind of engine that allowed things to be searched for, then I wouldn't have to.

A real hero has several beards he or she can switch at need...
