RQ Companion

I'm not sure if the RQ Companion is already available in game shops, but the relevant SRD is already on Mongoose's web-site!

Mongoose RuneQuest Wiki

A Mongoose RQ Wiki has been especially created for this particular incarnation of the RQ rules. According to its creator, everybody is 'free to use it to post [their] house rules, NPCs, monsters, spells, legendary abilites, whatever'. The MRQ Wiki also hosts a formatted version of the Mongoose RQ SRD for easy reference.

More RQ stuff from Mongoose (2)

The free downloads page on Mongoose's web-site has a host of new MRQ previews!
  • Arms & Equipment - This looks somewhat interesting: new armour, riding beasts, black powder weapons, etc.; however, frankly, this is the kind of stuff that I would've expected in the main rulebook.
  • Cults of Glorantha Book One - Second Age Gloranthan cults. In two books. 'Nuff said!
  • Glorantha The Second Age - The title says it all. Cultures, races, places of Second Age Glorantha.
  • Legendary Heroes - This looks completely naff: legendary abilities, legendary artefacts... Mongoose are a company specialised in d20 supplements, and fuck does it show.
  • Magic of Glorantha - Actually there aren't any previews for this one. The description says this book will feature the magic systems of the God Learners and of the EWF. A dream come true for all us Glorantha buffs.
  • RuneQuest Companion - Divine magic, sorcery, spirit combat, ships, temples... Looks brilliant but, again, this is the kind of stuff that I would've expected in the core rulebook, not in a supplement!
  • RuneQuest Monsters - Gloranthan monsters, and rules for creating fully-fledged nonhuman characters. Again, it should've been in the main rulebook.
When you think that, at the time, with RQ II and Cults of Prax you had all that was needed to play.....

More RQ stuff from Mongoose (1)

Signs & Portents issue No.37 is out, and it features an article with unusual flora and fauna for MRQ. Nothing particularly interesting and, again, a non-Gloranthan article, but I sure do commend Mongoose for supporting MRQ.
