People who have followed me and D101 Games will know I’m a big fan of Glorantha and RuneQuest. I’ve just unveiled a new blog which as well as putting out new adventures that I’m going to publishing via Chaosium’s Jonstown Compendium 1, it will have reviews, rules commentary and other bits and bobs useful to people who play RuneQuest, QuestWorlds or 13th Age Glorantha.
Here’s the cover of A Dry Run in Prax, a RuneQuest adventure that I’m currently working on. Art by Dan Barker.
1. Jonstown Compendium is the drivethrurpg.com community content program for Gloranthan Rpgs such as RuneQuest, Questworlds and 13th Age Glorantha.
Chaosium (publishers of Call of Cthulu, RuneQuest, 7th Sea etc) are having a warehouse clearance sale, with items being 15% to 66% off.
Here’s a list of stuff I personally recommend.
Alone Against the Flames, A solo Call of Cthulhu adventure. Learn how to play CoC 7th edition for the price of a coffee. SOLD!
HP Lovecraft’s Dunwich A Call of Cthulhu Sandbox, with a couple of supporting adventures. I had this in the 90s and foolishly let it go, but by gum, its mine again at a bargain price
RuneQuest Classic. A cleaned-up version of RuneQuest 2, without losing the original’s essential charm, with about 22 extra pages from magazines from the period, in a robust hardback. This is my Whitebox.
Borderlands and Beyond. Want a starting campaign for RQ? This is it. This is a collected edition, Borderlands + 2 other supplements integrated with new art from fan favourites. I had the pleasure of buying from Rick Meints, the publisher, at a convention in the 2000s.
13th Age Glorantha. Want to get into Glorantha, but overwhelmed by RQ and have a group that is more into D&D? This is your way of getting your Glorantha fix. Also worth getting if you are an old hand since it positively purrs in play 🙂
Khan of Khans. The easy to play card game intro to Glorantha. I played this with our H when he was around eight, he came away wanting to know more about Glorantha. Result!
I‘ve been shouting this one from the virtual rooftops for a good two weeks over on various Gloratha groups. However, just in case you are a Glorantha fan or Glorantha-currious, I’m ceasing my publication of my two Gloranthan fanzines at the end of this month. Which at the time of writing is just over a day and a half.
So if you want to pick up Hearts in Glorantha/Gloranthan Adventures, its on sale via my website (free postage for UK customers)
Or if you prefer drivethrurpg.com, its all there too.
Missed out on getting a copy of Grogzilla at Grogmeet 2019?
This 36 A5 page zine of D101 Mega Gaming Fun with skyscraper high three-headed firebreathing lizards is now available to preorder (with free pdf)
As well as articles for OpenQuest and Crypts and Things, it also has a sequel to the Road to Hell in the form of Wigan Pigs an adventure for OSR games. Also making their debut in Grogzilla are the Six Traveller culture for Mythras, which is a short taste of things to come in the new year.
As far as Old School settings go you can’t get more Old School than Glorantha. If you are a fan of old RuneQuest or merely just curious, I recommend you check out this system-less Gazetteer/Atlas.
I’ll be wittering on about it over on my Hearts in Glorantha blog,so pop over there if you want more detail.
