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.

image-12-.png
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!

402593.png
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.

jc-aug-22-one1.png
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)

A short adventure set in the Arfritha Vale of Sartar, includes background source material which expands the material within The Red Deer Saga. A long forgotten evil surfaces in the vale, it is up to the players to track it down and deal with its threat.

jc-aug-22-two.png
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."

Check out the video:


The Lottery

Can you save them all from a terrifying cult before it's too late?

Ian Straus ($1.00, 13 page PDF)

During the Siege of Nochet many beautiful buildings were damaged or destroyed. At a celebration to honor the rebuilding of the Temple of Esrola and her Grandson, Fufluns, an opportunity to bring the source of eternal light to the temple is presented to the Adventurers. Are they up to journeying to the Troll-lands around the Shadow Plateau and negotiating or stealing Tear-stones? As the bard Joan of Clan Blackwoodstone sings:

jc-dec-5.png

The White Upon the Hills
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?

The player characters are contacted by a sage in the Jonstown Library, who offers them payment to recover a dangerous scroll. The scroll is hidden in a townhouse formerly owned by an official of the Lunar Empire. It is also haunted by ghosts and spirits, and caution is warranted.

Edge of Empire

Creators have been busy in the Jonstown Compendium, our community content platform for independent content for RuneQuest and the world of Glorantha. Here are latest releases at DriveThruRPG!

Jonstown Compendium

Edge of Empire
Harald Smith ($24, 224 page PDF, also available as hardcover POD)

The Kingdom of Imther is a small, seemingly bucolic, mountainous province at the edge of the mighty Lunar Empire. It is home to herders, hunters, and cheesemakers whose king maintained a trade relationship with the mysterious dwarfs. But... the king is dead, the dwarfs have closed their brass gates, clans have rebelled, and ambitious leaders stake their claims. The HERO WARS have come to this fair and pleasant land.

Edge of Empire
presents a new Homeland for RuneQuest. It is part of the Lunar Empire, yet extends into rugged mountains and wild woodlands.

Crimson King
Nick Brooke ($11.95, 71 page PDF, also available as softcover POD)

Crimson King is a game of intrigue and conspiracy in the highest echelons of the Lunar Empire! Players take on the roles of the heroes and rulers of this Gloranthan superpower, confronted by treachery and betrayal on all sides.

The lavishly-illustrated scenario is a sequel to The Duel at Dangerford and Black Spear, and can be used as a stand-alone adventure or in an ongoing campaign. It builds on the Lunar Empire as presented in A Rough Guide to Glamour and Life of Moonson, but GMs do not need either book to run their game.

Nick Brooke's Gloranthan Manifesto
Nick Brooke (Free PDF, 212 page PDF, also available as softcover POD)

An archival selection of Nick Brooke’s opinion pieces about Chaosium’s RuneQuest role-playing game and its setting: Greg Stafford’s sword-and-sandal mythological fantasy world of Glorantha.

Jonstown Compendium

Secrets of Dorastor Personalities - Tactics
Simon Phipp ($14, 108 page PDF)

The Personalities of Dorastor are horrifying in many ways. Each one fights in their own special way, and few know of all of their tactics. I am lucky that I have seen several of them fight, at different times, and have survived to tell the tale, normally by being far enough away to not be in the combat itself. Some of the Personalities are true monsters, transcending normality. Aranara, the Great Gorp, Heidi and the Chaos Dragon are examples of these. Such creatures are to be feared and avoided. ” — Ickigore the Well-Travelled

Companion-piece to Secrets of Dorastor, including the major Personalities of Dorastor with an expanded portion of their Tactics, and beautifully illustrated by Dario Corallo.

In Search Of Baroshi
Marc Robertson ($2.95, 27 page PDF)

The ancient Godling, Baroshi, who had been released from his frozen state, has now had his body destroyed, and his spirit bound. The spirit, Nurse, has reached out for help. Will the party be able to find and rescue Baroshi before his spirit is destroyed(or worse)?

Easily adapted to work with any campaign, or it can be played as a stand-alone adventure.

The Temple of Twins
Erin McGuire, Diana Probst ($8.00, 52 page PDF)

A complete adventure for RuneQuest, designed to last an evening. It fits into any Praxian campaign, and is designed to stand alone, but can go well with Beer With Teeth's other Praxian scenarios. The adventure is designed to be highly challenging for warriors and outsiders to Prax, and much easier for women. Eirithans in particular will find their skills called on, and Ernaldans will be useful. Combat is much more likely if characters fail at walking Eiritha's path, but can be avoided by wise or skillful women.

Applefest 2
Graeme Atkinson ($5.99, 65 page PDF)

After last years Applefest and the manifestation of the gods it seem like this years festival will be well attended. Every parent secretly wants their child to be posessed by Orlanth!

Adventurers will have to chaparone the childrens quest, entertain a queen and visiting dignataries, protect everyone and perhaps wonder around dressed as a pantomime monster. On top of this a dark cloud hangs over Pig Hollow and Wakboth's hoofprints are found leading to Apple Lane. Let's not forget a dark conspiracy and elven vengeance.

A Vale Ablaze
Vivien Prigent ($11.50, 137 page PDF)

A Vale Ablaze contains four scenarios designed to be played in the setting described in In a Merry Green Vale, for adventurers who are the children of exiles from the Lysang clan trying to win back acceptance in their clan after an amnesty proclaimed by the Lunar authorities.

Caravan Alley
JK Revell ($4.50, 36 page PDF)

Caravan Alley is the main trade route from Dragon Pass into southern Prax. But merchants are not the only people to travel its length, for each of the oases along it has its own pull.

This is a mini-sandbox setting describing two oases along Caravan Alley and is a follow-up to Day’s Rest. In addition to descriptions of the oases, it includes twenty-one NPCs that can provide interaction or story possibilities.

The Queen's Star - Jonstown Compendium

"The one thing I've got to say about the Jonstown Compendium on DriveThruRPG, the supplements' top tier – they are practically indistinguishable in terms of layout from fully professional releases." — RPG Imaginings.

Here are three new Jonstown Compendium community content releases that have already received rave reviews from RuneQuest fans! If there are Jonstown Compendium titles that you've enjoyed, please do give them a rating and perhaps even a written review at DriveThruRPG — their creators will really appreciate it!

The Queen's Star
Akhelas, Austin Conrad ($10.00, 34 page PDF)

The shade of Kallyr Starbrow—once Prince of Sartar—asks the adventurers to be her hands in the Middle World. One of the noble Star Captains has gone missing. He descended from the Sky to discover Kallyr's fate. Now, she needs the adventurers' help to repay his loyalty.

The Queen's Star is a site-based adventure which describes one portion of the infamous Cinder Pits in the lands of the Colymar Tribe, in Sartar. This sandbox-style adventure gives the gamemaster the tools needed to discover whether the adventurers will use weapons or words to free an imprisoned Star Captain. It is designed for use with beginning adventurers (such as the RuneQuest Starter Set pregens), and to provide from 1 to 3 sessions of play.

"A fantastic open ended scenario that incorporates the classic Gloranthan feel with a well fleshed out location. Works very well with new characters, perhaps after they've completed the scenarios in the RQ Starter Set." — Christian G. (customer review).

Veins of Discord - Jonstown Compendium

Veins of Discord
Finmirage ($6.90, 30 page PDF)

An adventure set in the lands of Sartar near Apple Lane. This module brings your party into a conflict between two factions, each wanting control over the same resources. Players will face elemental forces and make tough decisions. Their choices will impact the environment and nearby communities. Relationships with important allies could be strained, and actions will have lasting repercussions.

Veins of Discord spans several seasons, and can be run between other adventures. While it's designed for Apple Lane region, it can be adjusted for other areas in Glorantha with some modifications.

"Great idea for an adventure and with a quality work overall. The arts are awesome." — Hannu R (customer review).

The Voralans - Jonstown Compendium

The Voralans
Brian Duguid ($11.99, 82 page PDF)

This book is for anyone who would like to feature the black elves of Glorantha in their RuneQuest game, and who wants more detail on this somewhat “alien” race.

The black elves, or voralans, are fungal humanoids, walking, talking, magical mushrooms. They are distantly related to the other races of Darkness (invertebrates, and trolls). Their relationship to the plant elves, the Aldryami, is explored in this book. Unlike almost any other Gloranthan race, they have a lifelong telepathic link with one another, a mental communion that makes them see and deal with the world very differently.

"This book contains some seriously weird-ass naughty word, and I love it. Voralans are definitely some of the odder inhabitants of Glorantha (even by the standards of a world brimming with odd), and realising them in game terms with such insight and humour, as well as a big bag of crazy, is no mean feat. The authors deserve bags of credit for so ably bringing this particular baby spore to fruition." — John D. (customer review)

Scenarios

Rocks Fall, Diana Probst ($5.00, 16 page PDF)
This short-to-evening-length scenario is designed to slot in to any RQG campaign, as a one-shot fight for those times when a troll cave is absolutely required, or the pacing of the game calls for violence.
  • Reviews from R'lyeh review: "...particularly suitable for a combat orientated group of player characters or a combat capable group looking for a change of pace."
Arrows of War, Martin Helsdon ($1.00, 5 page PDF)

The second half details an introductory scenario – No Country for Cold Men – pitting the militia against a group of violent lawbreakers. Volume 2 is in preparation.
  • Reviews from R'lyeh review: "If you are looking for an interesting set-up, the opportunity to run a scenario in a more organised and civilised setting with player characters who have the authority and the duty to act in Sun County’s best interests—despite their less than upright and morally upstanding reputations, (this) is an opportunity to run and roleplay a campaign that is very different to other RQG scenarios."
The Fertile Ground, Michael Paul O’Sullivan ($4.99, 22 page PDF)
A short adventure that explores the conflict between the Beast and Man Runes. It is aimed at newly generated adventurers or those with limited experience.
  • Reviews from R'lyeh review: "...presents opportunities for both roleplaying and combat with a standoff that nicely brings two opposing Runes into conflict and gives room aplenty for the player characters to resolve that standoff."
The Throat of Winter, Austin Conrad ($5.00, 26 page PDF)
Winter Descends on Dragon Pass! When the child Rolf goes missing after a blizzard, his parents Rastolf and Serla grow frantic. They come to the village of Apple Lane begging for help from any who will listen. They come seeking any who will brave the wind and snow of winter to find a little boy. They come seeking adventurers.
  • Reviews from R'lyeh review: "...a solid addition to your campaign with nicely done background lore and wintery."

Army Lists provide details of the regiments and other entities which fought in this epic conflict, supplemented by numerous illustrations of the participants.
  • RPGNet review (Paul St John MacIntosh): "A masterpiece... It's the kind of sourcebook you can dip into only to get lost for hours and re-emerge with glazed eyes. If any other Jonstown Compendium product ever equals it in quality and comprehensiveness, I'll be impressed and incredibly surprised*."
  • Exploring the Otherworlds of Fiction, Magic, and Gaming review (Andrew Logan Montgomery): "If The Armies and Enemies of Dragon Pass is any indication of what we can look forward to from the Jonstown Compendium we are all in for a treat. It says something, I think, about the type of fans Glorantha has always tended to attract. Helsdon’s work follows in the footsteps of books like Cults of Prax; it is effectively an academic dissertation of a game book; erudite, professional, leaving no stone unturned, utterly authoritative in its subject matter. If the Gloranthan Renaissance is going to include fan contributions like this, we might actually be looking at a Golden Age."

Stone and Bone
Diana Probst ($7.95, 25 page PDF)
This full scenario for Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha is designed to slot in to any campaign where shamans can be found. It is written with Praxians in mind but can easily be converted to be set elsewhere. A collection of plot hooks is included, along with maps, walkthrough, and suggested aftermath. The adventure will appeal to most characters with an outward bent. Combat is likely, but can be avoided with sufficient cleverness and skill, but it is assumed that danger will be faced. Scaling tips are included to make this a challenge to heavily armed and armoured parties.

Congratulations to Jonstown Compendium creator Andrew Logan Montgomery! His work Six Seasons in Sartar was been released to resounding acclaim.

Andrew has gathered together what people have said about his book so far, which we thought we'd share:

Six Seasons in Sartar - what reviewers say
Six Seasons in Sartar

Six Seasons in Sartar
Andrew Logan Montgomery ($19.95, 144 page PDF)

SARTAR 1619 ST – A group of young people come of age in an isolated mountain clan. They are the first generation born and raised after the Lunar Conquest, and saw their people bleed and die in Kallyr of Kheldon's failed rebellion. Yet Kallyr still believes she is the one destined to liberate Sartar, and Fate--or Luck--is about to put these young Sartarites in her path...

Six Seasons in Sartar is an epic six-scenario campaign written for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha but easily adaptable to other systems. Based on the Third Age epic poem of the same name, the campaign plays like a novel, with character arcs, plot twists, and themes, but is still completely driven by players' choices and group tastes.

"Sandheart is an example of how it is getting harder to tell the Compendium and the Chaosium books apart," writes Andrew Logan Montgomery in his review of the newly-expanded Tales of the Sun County Militia: Sandheart Vol 1, available from the Jonstown Compendium, Chaosium's community content platform for RuneQuest on DriveThruRPG.

sc-cover.png

Sandheart is a campaign framework and introductory scenario "No Country for Cold Men" for RuneQuest games set in Sun County, Prax. It was inspired by the RuneQuest 3rd edition sourcebook Sun County, published in 1991.

The original Sandheart was an inaugural release for the Jonstown Compendium by Jon Webb. In this remastered version its 39 pages have been expanded to 103 pages. It includes new art by Mark Baldwin and Ludovic Chabant, and a new section on Sun County Backgrounds by Nick Brooke (A Rough Guide to Glamour, The Duel at Dangerford). This uses the Family Background format from RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha to create a rich and entertaining family history for player characters from Sun County.

Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien, author of Sun County, has written a foreword for the new edition of Sandheart, noting "it's a pleasure for me to see that almost thirty years since Sun County was published, there is still much to be written about, discovered, argued over, and gamed in, in this small and distant, yet special part of Glorantha."

sc-3.png

Andrew Logan Montgomery writes, "Sandheart marks another step forward not only in the development of the Jonstown Compendium but in the entire Gloranthan Renaissance... What we have now is an embarrassment of riches, with better and better Gloranthan material coming at us every day. Sandheart is a worthy successor to Sun County, and it looks to be just the beginning."

Further adventures in the Sandheart series are available at the Jonstown Compendium in Sandheart Vol 2: The Corn Dolls and Sandheart Vol 3: Tradition.

What is the Jonstown Compendium?​

Are you a Gamesmaster looking for new scenarios and story elements? A player looking for something mysterious to spark a character idea? Is your group looking for more Gloranthan goodness to use in your game? The Jonstown Compendium is where you can find —and create —self-published material for your Gloranthan roleplaying games.
