A World of Fantastic Myth & Heroic
Adventure in a Box!
RuneQuest is a fantasy roleplaying game set in the world of Glorantha, played by two or more players and a single gamemaster. Players in RuneQuest are adventurers, heroes who must face the challenges laid before them by the gamemaster, who describes the world and its incredible inhabitants.
Adventurers are defined by their skills, passions, equipment, and magical abilities such as spells and mastery of the powerful Runes. They improve by successfully using the skills and abilities they attempt in play. Combat is dangerous and unpredictable. Even the mightiest can fall in battle, victim to a well-aimed blow, just as the most inexperienced peasant might bring down a giant or even a dragon, if they are lucky enough. Such is life in the world of Glorantha.
Beset by war, the heroes of Glorantha ready themselves for their greatest challenge, the looming threat of the Hero Wars, an apocalyptic battle that will shape the fate of the world for all of time. To show themselves worthy, heroes adventure and strive against Chaos and their former enemies, the Lunar Empire.
The RuneQuest Starter Set allows players to easily immerse themselves into Glorantha and its system, with ready-to-use characters and ready-to-play adventures allowing for many hours of play. There is no better way to learn about the game and world than this starter set.
