Why would you say that?Lord Twig said:Well he couldn't be from Dragon Pass. RuneQuest itself is entirely separate from Glorantha. The example has to work for whatever setting you might be using.
Agreed. It was GoG, Crucible and Elder Secrets that did it. The piss poor quality of the Gateway supplements also contributed (perhaps a lot more.)SteveMND said:And incidently, i don't think Sun Couty 'squarely put Glorantha back into RQ;' it was a Gloranthan book written for RQIII. If anything, it succeeded because it was a very good supplement.
SteveMND said:I think what he means is that MRQ is designed as a OGL product -- i.e., there will be a basic framework of rules and such that will be available for anyone to work off of. In that sense, the basic ruleset will likely be somewhat generic, as they don't have the legal rights to make Gloranthan material (i.e., Gloranthan IP) freely useable by others.
This rulebook contains the core rules for RuneQuest and
little else. However, it tends to assume that the original
gaming world for RuneQuest, Glorantha, will be used
most of the time. Therefore, it includes a magic system
suitable for Glorantha, monsters that are known to dwell
there and so on.

Heading for the love getaway, love getaway,
I got me a car, it's as big as a whale and we're headin' on down
To the Gun Shak
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20
So hurry up and bring your Runequest money
The Gun-shak is a little old place where we can get together
Gun shak baby, Gun shak bay-bee.
Gun baby, that's where it's at, Ooo gun baby, that's where it's at
Sign says.. Woo... stay away fools, 'cause New rules at the Gunshak!
Well it's set way back in the middle of a field,
Just funky old shacks and I gotta get back
R-Q on the mattress
R-Q on the highway
R-Q on the front porch
R-Q on the hallway
Gun shak is a little old place where we can get together
Gun-Shak baby! Gunshak, that's where it's at!
Rollin' and a missin', dancin' and a lovin', fightin' next to nothing
Cause it's hot as an oven
The whole shack shimmies! The whole shack shimmies when everybody's
Movin' around and around and around!
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby!
Folks linin' up outside just to get down
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby
Funky little shak! Funky little shak!
Hop in my Chrysler, it's as big as a whale and it's about to set sail!
I got me a car, it seats about 20
So hurry up and bring your Runequest money.
Bang bang bang on the door baby! Knock a little louder baby!
Bang bang bang on the door baby! I can't hear you
Your what?... Tin roof, rusted!
Gun Shak, baby Gun- Shak!
Love baby, that's where it's at
Rollin' and a missin', dancin' and a lovin' at the Gun-shak
