HeroQuest Glorantha

The much-awaited new edition of HeroQuest, specifically tailored for Gloranthan play, is available for pre-orders at USD39.95. As soon as you've placed your pre-order, you can download the PDF.

Here's what Moon Design have communicated on the Gloranthan G+ community about HeroQuest Glorantha:

HeroQuest Glorantha is a stand-alone rules system that lets you run games set in Glorantha WITH NOTHING ELSE REQUIRED! It lets you create Esrolian, Praxian, and Tarshite characters, as well as Sartarites. It is updated for the 1627 setting. It has far far clearer rules than HQ2. It gives a lot more explanation into the nature of Gloranthan magic so you can run HQG games more easily. It not only updates cults that have appeared before, but includes cults that have not (such as Waha). Lots more material on running hero quests (including a breakdown of Eringulf's hero quest to get the Vanak Spear). ILLUMINATION. Did I mention that? Information on Gloranthan monsters. Plus a self-contained starter adventure that could take place anywhere in the Dragon Pass/Prax/Holy Country area and includes a pretty major hero quest right off the bat?
How's that for starters? Plus lots of snippets of information to make it easier to take the Guide or King of Sartar and start running HQG adventures.

Can't wait to get mine, but it's actually much more because of the amazing art than because of the rules themselves as I am only a HeroQuest player in Glorantha; I do not GM using the HQ rules.
