Design Mechanism Launches the RuneQuest Archive on Drivethru
We're delighted to announce that Design Mechanism
, Issaries and Mongoose Publishing have reached an agreement that allows us to continue making available RuneQuest and Glorantha titles (originally published by Mongoose) through DrivethruRPG and its affiliated sites.
Under the RuneQuest Archives
you'll be able to buy a special selection of the very best of the old Mongoose RQ and Glorantha titles at only $1.00 per book.
This means that certain titles that would have disappeared are now available at a really great price. The titles are split between the first and second editions of Mongoose's RuneQuest iteration (MRQ1 and MRQ2 respectively).
Get Into Glorantha for Only $10!
It also means that, if you've ever hesitated about getting into Glorantha because the cost has been prohibitive, you can now take the plunge at a nominal cost. The entire set of these Glorantha titles, bought as a bundle, costs only $10 and includes:
An extensive but accessible guide to the world
A comprehensive and detailed guide to Glorantha's Second Age cults
Two complete campaigns
A highly detailed deep-dive into the culture of the God Learners
A complete overview of one major Gloranthan region (Fronela), including a starting scenario.
The titles available through RuneQuest Archives are:
RuneQuest Empires (MRQ2)
Monster Coliseum (MRQ2)
Land of the Samurai (MRQ1)
The Price of Honour (MRQ1)
Glorantha: the Second Age (MRQ2)
Cults of Glorantha (MRQ2)
The Abiding Book (MRQ2)
Pavis Rises (MRQ2)
Blood of Orlanth (MRQ2)
Dara Happa Stirs (MRQ1)
Both MRQ1 and MRQ2 books will be highly compatible with RuneQuest 6th edition and, of course, MRQ2 books are fully compatible with Mongoose's Legend system.
All these books contain a wealth of background information, history, cultural detail and ideas that are, of course, system agnostic. The Glorantha titles in particular include some information unexplored in any previous Gloranthan works and, in the case of the four races books, provide huge and detailed insight into their respective species.
