Work on the magazine itself continues, with it being content complete and going forward into proofing and art commissioning.

I plan to have it out OCT/NOV 2016.

Hearts in Glorantha 6 is on its way!

Well after a spell on the back burner, the fires of inspiration have shot forth and Hearts in Glorantha issue 6 is now content complete!

  • Lightbringers Quest a different take on a familiar tale by Matt Ryan, which allows players and narrators new to HeroQuest and Glorantha dive right in and see what is special about the rules and setting.
  • God Forgot, by Barry Blatt gives his take on this Zzaburi State within the Holy Country..
  • Light and Death is a Lunar Adventure set in Dara Happa by Neil Smith.
  • The Awakening  is an adventure by Scott Crowder set within exactly 500 Years after the Dragon Kill in Dragon Pass, where the heroes face being trapped in the Dream of a Dragon.
  • Why the Story is the Best, Mythological fiction by Dr Moose
  • The Land of Flowers a mini-Kralora setting by myself, filled with Kick ass Kung Fu heroes and weird sinister adversaries.

Oh and Stewart Stansfield is back with his Ducks….

Glorantha is Go!

Quick update on where I’m up to with D101’s Gloranthan efforts at the beginning of 2016.

Gloranthan Adventures #3 Defenders of the Dark slipped, in the face of all the work I had to do around Crypts & Things (which is now a huge and mysterious thing). Good news is the text is ready to proof by a dedicated proofer and the art is commissioned.

Hearts in Glorantha #6 (aka Vol 2 issue 1) didn’t take off as I planned. It seems that I’m back at the stage where I was with issue 1, where I have to build up a bull pen of regular writers. This means I’ve moved my adventure Dead Man’s Scrolls from GA#3 (which makes sense since it makes that book an all UZ book) into HiG#6. Fortunately HiG regulars Stewart Standsfield is  back with a series of Caladraland articles while Jane Williams is working on an adventure.

I’m still looking for submissions for Hearts in Glorantha #6 so if you are interested please get in touch at newt@d101games.com.

Gloranthan Adventures #4 is already on the cards. This is going to be a mega-adventure set in the land of Karia, an area in the East Wilds haunted by the legacy of Nysalor and Arkat. I plan to have this in a playable form by 7 Hills in April and be able to offer it at UK Games Expo and Continuum later in the year.

I had feared that the Gloranthan flame had gone out here at D101, due to huge work pressures of our other game lines,  but after a bit of refocusing we’re back up and running. No idea when these books will be out (C&T dominates our release schedule because its a Kickstarter in fullfillment) but I hope to have something out by UK Games Expo, were we will be on a stall behind our friends at Chaosium 🙂

If you are interested in helping out with HiG or GA, please get in touch at newt@d101games.com.
