Bog Struggles
BOLT80, Ludovic Chabant, Austin Conrad ($3.00, 25 page PDF)

There's a bog nearby where newtlings live. They have friendly relations with the human neighbors through trade and water worship services. But something happened recently and the newtlings are scared and upset. Maybe your adventurers can help!

An adventure that can be easily inserted into any campaign: all it requires is the presence of some wetlands, which is easily done anywhere in Dragon Pass or along the Zola Fel valley in Prax.

Velhara's Mirror
Michael Paul O\'Sullivan ($6.99, 36 page PDF)

Beast Valley is under attack. Ancient magic that for centuries protected the region has faltered and its enemies bite deep into the heartland. It is not just one foe, but many, and they fight equally amongst themselves as against the beast men. Perhaps it is from this disorder that hope will spring for the beast men, or will it lead to chaos and destruction for all.

Follows on from The Ruins of Bonn Kanach and forms part two of the Beast Valley campaign, however it can be used as a stand alone resource.

The Lifethief
Diana Probst, Beer With Teeth ($10.00, 47 page PDF)

The Shaman Maserelt of the Impala tribe has been waiting by the Dead Place for weeks, calling for help, as she watches over the slow growth of something terrible within. She has even asked her rival Erhehta, who will be sending the adventurers, if they dare to go. Despite his many conflicts with Maserelt, some things are even more important than winning. Of course, if the Bison tribe can aid her where the Impalas cannot, that counts as a victory for Prax and for Erhehta.

Written to fit well after The Gifts of Prax, but no knowledge of that adventure is required. The suggested play order is Stone and Bone, The Gifts of Prax, The Lifethief, but the later adventures contain advice on playing the arc out of order.

Lost In The Dark
Josh skull Dixon ($2.50, 11 page PDF)

This Adventure Seed is all about the heroes having a nighttime adventure in Dragon Pass while traveling at night. The heroes have attracted the attention of a mischievous spirit that enjoys causing travelers to become lost and confused, making them lose their way in the night and end up in dire predicaments. Will your Heroes find their way, or will they become lost without hope?

Day's Rest
JK Revell ($4.00, 26 page PDF)

Day’s Rest is one of the many oases scattered across Prax and the Wastes. It is a respite from the harsh chaparral of the plains, a place to water riding animals and obtain food and provisions. It is also a market, the first stop along the Caravan Alley, a trade route running from Sartar to the Eiritha Hills in eastern Prax.

To Sartarites, it can often be their first introduction to life in Prax, a rare settled location that can be a place of trade, or a secure meeting point from which to venture out into the trackless wilds. It can be a place of opportunity, for good or ill. The Bison Riders rule here and have little time for civilised ways, even as they trade for exotic wares in the marketplace.

As one of the founding editors of the renowned Gloranthan fanzine Tales of the Reaching Moon in 1989, Brian Duguid helped keep Glorantha fandom alive and thriving throughout the 1990s. And now, in 2022, Brian is back as an independent creator for RuneQuest with his amazing labor of love The Children of Hykim.

Bestselling Jonstown Compendium creator Nick Brooke highly recommends Brian's work, describing it as "a magisterial examination of the many Hsunchen beast-totem tribes of Genertela... this book is creative, original, respectful of its sources... but never afraid to argue for its own vision, and tell the reader why."

Under the Jonstown Compendium community content license, fans of Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha can sell and share their own material on DriveThruRPG. Check out Brian's book and these other brilliant new titles. And check out the Jonstown Compendium Guidelines and start creating yourself!

The Children of Hykim
Brian Duguid ($16.99, 159 page PDF)

"Everyone has a wild beast within them".

This book is aimed at anyone who is interested in the Hsunchen, the shape-changing totem animal peoples of the world of Glorantha, the setting for the RuneQuest role-playing game. The Hsunchen inhabit the fringes of Gloranthan geography and include some of the most peculiar and fascinating peoples in this world. Because they mostly live far away from mainstream society they are often obscure and poorly documented, and perhaps rarely encountered in many RuneQuest games. This book is here to put that right!

Twenty-one Hsunchen tribes living in the western and central parts of the continent of Genertela are described across 159 pages, alongside extensive information regarding their culture, myth, technology, magic and more.

Six Seasons in Sartar: The Seven Tailed Wolf
Andrew Logan Montgomery ($18.95, 130 page PDF)

In a Sartar now free of foreign rule, the Company of the Dragon returns home to Black Stag Vale. After six years of war and exile, they struggle to find peace. But a failing Prince and a gathering enemy threaten Sartar's newfound freedom. Torn between the quiet mountain clan they were and the feared warband they have become, the Company is forced to make a choice. Are they the Dragon, or are they the Stag?

This is the conclusion of the Haraborn saga that began in the Platinum bestselling Six Seasons in Sartar and the Gold bestselling The Company of the Dragon.

A Darker Shade of Night
Jeremiah Evans, Scott Cox ($6.99, 47 page PDF)

Approached outside the walled city of Pavis by a mysterious benefactor willing to pay for their services, leaves the adventurers in possession of a powerful artifact. Investigating the artifact brings the adventurers to the attention of a cult who wishes to possess it by any means. Learning about a dark ritual to be conducted by the cult, they will need to confront the cult and stop them, or it will mean dire consequences to the citizens of Pavis.

This adventure is presented partly as a sandbox style with the adventurers investigating their newly acquired artifact in the city of New Pavis. Their inquiries will lead them toward confrontations with a cult of Kyger Litor operating in the troll section of the Big Rubble.

A Brazen Visage
Paul Baker ($6.00, 49 page PDF)

Pirates of the East Isles Vol. I
Scott Crowder ($15.00, 123 page PDF)

Glorantha as you've never seen it before! This is volume one of a three part campaign spanning years, perhaps even decades. You and your players can leave Dragon Pass behind and be pirates in the mysterious East Isles. Explore an exotic land where each island is a god unto itself. Play new occupations such as Pirate, Sailor and Mystic. Learn a unique martial arts system. Worship all new gods with a completely different mythology than what you've known till now. No Orlanth, no Thed, no Issaries, no Trickster!

Charles Dunwoody of EN World says, "A GM looking for a deeply rooted campaign for RuneQuest could find months of gaming with this supplement alone, and two more are planned. A great supplement to kick off a new campaign with."

Sacha Gauthier, Reece Dyer ($2.95, 22 page PDF)

“Trap the beast in twine / Catch it at its shrine. / Bind its soul with Death / Cease its final breath. / Burn the curse with stone / Cleanse the land of bone.”

For many seasons, the White Blight has plagued the hunting grounds on Stael’s Hills. During the Great Hunt, the adventurers encounter the aftermath of a monstrous attack and the origin of the spreading curse. Tracking the monster, they find a magic strike-stone from an ancient hunting legend. If they intend to use it, they must retread the steps of a mysterious hunting god — to bind, slay and cleanse their prey. Will the adventurers get all the artifacts from the song?
