Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable.
Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.
For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy.
We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed download decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable.

The design dynamically delivers the impossible, turning crunch and fluff into one. Its capability to create stories even before the characters are presented to one another, and its crunchiness when the going gets tough and hard decisions are required, have already earned it a place in the pantheon of gaming.
Veterans will feel right at home, while new fans will wonder how come a game like this didn't exist up to now. Everything the new Chaosium touches turns to gold. download and play, immediately! The art, binding and writing is all first rate. I would say it is the most attractive book I own.
Looks are great, but the real value goes deeper than appearances. The content of RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha is up to the standards set by its appearance. Its unique approach to advancing skills and the percentile system used to resolve attacks and actions are still as clever today, while the expansive Glorantha continues to draw in adventurers looking for an immersive and vibrant setting.

Posted by Balazar Lightson on 3rd Feb This game really brings out the mythic and cultural aspects of gaming in Glorantha.
The character generation process, with it's focus on recent ancestors their place in the history of Dragon Pass, helps to firmly embed each PC into the world. Incorporating ideas about the importance of relationships from another great Chaosium game, Pendragon, gives PC's a simple personal history to fall back on, and build from in play. The art work is first rate; a stylized bronze age aesthetic permeating the whole book, from arms and armor, to dress, magic, spirits and daemons, the art truly brings Glorantha alive.
The otherworldlyness of it's non-human peoples, and the cultural oddness of it's human ones are highlighted in the art, and help to describe the milieu for both Players and Game Masters. A focus on Rune relationships of the characters add elements not really seen in previous play versions of RuneQuest, an superb addition for Gloranthan play, and relationships with Gods and Heroes, but perhaps less so for use in another world setting.
Sorcery magic, again in this edition, is a touch lacking, and hopefully more interestingly explored in later publications. I'm not sure we've had a satisfactory sorcery system for RQ yet. Hopefully one day. Mechanically, at heart it's a BRP game much like prior RuneQuest editions, but the few extra tweaks from Pendragon help fill the world with life and passion.
Overall, I see it as the best incarnation of RuneQuest to date for a Glorantha based game, there are a few tweaks I will bring to it's rules. Nothing unusual there though, as I've house ruled every previous edition so far, and many other RPG's that have crossed my table.
This is not so unusual for the hobby, as the most famous game in the industry also has the some problem. An easy problem to fix by picking up the Gloranthan Bestiary, which is in and of itself a superb book. Together with the GM Screen pack it's a beautiful slipcase set that I will definitely pick up for my shelf at home.
For players of previous editions, this one is perfect for Gloranthan play, might need a couple tweaks to play in another world, but the differences with previous editions are relatively minor to account for for and experienced GM.
For new players looking to be introduced to Glorantha, it is a superb book. To me it was always going to be a must have game, but I have been really positively surprised at what a joy it is to both play and run. Posted by Jay Steven Anyong on 24th Jul Blessed with fantastic artwork, lovely layout and writing that could only come from the heart of someone who truly, absolutely loved the setting, reading RuneQuest was a heck of an experience.
I remember early on that I came to RuneQuest hoping that it could deliver the same sense of culture as Legend of the Five Rings. Now I find myself praying that the new edition of Legend of the Five Rings can relay their setting with the same care and attention to detail as Glorantha was presented in RuneQuest.
Everything and everyone has a place and a role, and Adventurers are motivated and constrained by their role in their communities. And that suits me fine. RuneQuest is a stellar example of a game that knows what it wants to do.
I will use it when I want to tell a tale of heroes that reads like the Literary Epics rather than a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. RuneQuest Roleplaying in Glorantha is a fantastic product, but it does feel incomplete. Without a bestiary a concern now addressed with the release of the book just a few days ago the book itself is less of a complete experience.
Also missing are chapters devoted to teaching people to run RuneQuest. While there is no shortage of inspiration, I had hoped that it would include more advice on how to start and what kind of adventures one could run for it. The rules are complex but fit together in the manner of a Swiss watch, and the setting only makes it even more impressive.
Chaosium has wowed me consistently from day 1 with my experiences with Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, but RuneQuest is the one game that has knocked me off my feet and made me a believer. Get it, study it, and fall in love with it. I know I have. This is a fraction of a huge article "Let's Study" review series on my blog that you can find over at https: With well over hours of playtime already with RQ: G, I can firmly say this is the best system I have ever played.
Don't let RuneQuest's crunchy reputation hold you back. Combat is fast, fun and easy to learn. Narrative and combat loving players alike will have a great time with this one.
