Just so you know Lawrence Whitaker is retiring the old MRQ1/MRQ2 material that is available over in pdf form for mere $1s this coming weekend (17/18th Jan) , last chance to pick up some Gloranthan goodness (I’d recommend Dara Happa Stirs, Pavis Rises and Glorantha 2nd Age) before it goes for good.

Just to let people know, we’ll be retiring the RQ Archives, which is where all the old $1 PDFs are available, this coming weekend (17/18th Jan). We’re looking at streamlining the RQ trademark which is currently split over MRQ, MRQ2 and RQ6. Although we could, in theory, keep these titles on DTRPG forever, this is part of a wider brand evaluation for both RQ and Glorantha.
So if you want to get these PDFs from the RQ Archives, do so now because they won’t be around for much longer.
Worth noting the Glorantha Forum over at the Tavern, which I’ve added to the links section in the sidebar. In comparison to the official forums/G+ community its a lot more laid back and focused on the detail of the setting.
I’m declaring it the Unofficial Forum of Hearts in Glorantha, mainly because I hang out there and occasionally start up a thread or two.

So as a European backer of the Guide I’m waiting on a transatlantic boat to dock in Germany, while fellow Gloranthafans in the US and even oft forgot New Zealand and Australia excitedly post pictures of their copies. ITS NOT FAIR I TELL YOU 😀
At least I have the pdf copies to hug while I wait 🙂
Another thing that has been delayed is the HeroQuest Glorantha rule-set, but fortunately as a high end backer i have an artless draft (review of which is soon).
There is a silver lining to all this is that because I have the pdfs I’m using it as an opportunity to tidy up Red Sun Rising (the much delayed Gloranthan Adventures #2) so it is in line with the Guide and the new HeroQuest Glorantha. So if you are Glorantha curious or an old hand whose only played in Dragon Pass you’ll be up and going playing Sword and Sandal adventures in the Lunar Heartlands in no time at all 🙂
A long navel gazing post over at my Old School blog about my journey through various editions of RuneQuest.
… Or flying over the Atlantic or being man handled by a full fulfilment clerk. Mine is not the place to know such things, after waiting this long I’m not stressing any further.
HOWEVER i do have final pdf copies of both volumes of the Guide and the Argan Argar Atlas (can you see the gentle pun they’ve pulled there) which is a collection of all the full size maps in a single book.
Fingers xed the physical books arrive before my holiday in Pendragon country (The Cotswolds) 🙂
