I never got into RuneQuest. Sure, I owned some of the books, but for us in high school it was all AD&D all the time when it came to fantasy, and that was all she wrote. Still, I know that RuneQuest and Glorantha hold a special place in many OSR gamers’ hearts, so I thought many of you might be interested in this news from The Design Mechanism:
RuneQuest 6th edition is now available for pre-order.
All direct orders are handled through our partner, Moon Design Publications.
Physical copies will ship from our distributors around the 20th-27th July. Please allow up to 28 days for delivery.
PDF orders are available for immediate download.
In addition, the Mongoose RuneQuest material will be made available in pdf format through the RuneQuest Archives (handled through DriveThruRPG.com), some of which are only $1 a piece. And all, supposedly, are going to be compatible with the new rules (although I confess I’m not enough of a RuneQuest afficinado to grasp the nuances, and RuneQuest has had a rather convoluted publishing history).
I’ve gotta say this seems like a good time to be a RuneQuest fan!
