A RuneQuest Campaign in seven scenarios
You Bet …
You bet a lot when you left home and went adventuring. You could hold your own with a sword, and you knew your way around some of the not-so-nice local hot-spots, but you weren’t prepared to be called ‘stranger’, and you’d never actually seen a troll.
You skirmished, and fought pitched battles. Your skills and confidence grew. Now the jobs for hired swords are few, and though you’re still hungry for glory and riches and honor, right now you’d settle for a meal ….
Fortunately, good men are needed to help civilize a new domain – that may mean steady meals and reliable friends for a hungry, lonely mercenary. Seven scenarios of varying complexity will test his skills and wits, and his abilities to fight, guard, investigate, and explore will be crucial to his success. If he survives, he’ll be well-seasoned, ready for anything in Glorantha.
This campaign scenario pack provides everything needed to referee a RuneQuest campaign along the River of Cradles, a fertile valley separating the devastation of Vulture’s Country and the wretched chaparral of Prax. The campaign is intended for intermediate-skilled characters. Background, history, and regional details are included: the employer, the different tribal peoples in the area, the creatures and monsters (ducks to dinosaurs, whirlvishes to wraiths), and area-specific magic items. The encounters book is sizable, including the deadly Eternal Battle, a time-warped hold-over from the Gods Wars.
Components – Referee’s Handbook, Encounter Book, seven individually-bound and linked scenarios (Scouting the Land, Outlaw Hunt, Muriah’s Revenge, Rescue of Jezra, 5-Eyes Temple, Condor Crags, On to Giantland!), a 17×22 campaign map, player hand-outs.
Mercenaries earn their pay in Prax!
