CHA4028 RuneQuest – Roleplaying in Glorantha (2018)

Welcome to Glorantha

It is a fantasy world unlike any other–a mythic world of mortals and gods, myths and cults, spirits and elementals, monsters and heroes. Magic permeates all of existence, and the bonds between tribe, clan, and family are as important as are the relationships between mortals and the gods they worship. Beyond the gods and spirits are the Runes that make and define reality–those who master the Runes can shape the world.

This is Glorantha, the world of RuneQuest, and the most acclaimed fantasy RPG setting of all time. The gods now call upon mortal adventurers to become Heroes and fight for the world’s survival.

It is your time for Adventure!

Inside, you’ll find:

  • A character creation system involves your adventurer into the world, with family, motives, and a personal history
  • Rules that let you customize and improve your character the way you want
  • Descriptions of the major gods and their cults
  • A fast-paced combat system, intense and immersive, where anyone can die in a single blow
  • A guide to the Runes and other types of magic, from spirit magic, sorcery, to incredible Rune magic that lets mortals wield the power of the gods themselves
  • All the rules you need to play

And a special thanks to Petersen Entertainment, for creating The Gods War and allowing us to use art from it, and to A Sharp, for creating King of Dragon Pass and Six Ages, and allowing us to use art from those games.

Dedicated to Greg Stafford, 1948–2018. “Mythology is all about meaning. The physical sciences and the physical world can tell us what things are, but they can’t tell us what they mean.” Thank you for opening the door to Glorantha and showing us how to see the invisible worlds of our fantasy.

May Arachne Solara bless and protect this book.
