Release [Chaosium] Newest Gloranthan goodness by indie creators (Jonstown Compendium)

Michael O'Brien

Jonstown Compendium creator Nick Brooke has put together an incredibly helpful guide to the growing list of titles in our community content program for RuneQuest and Glorantha on DriveThruRPG.

His Jonstown Compendium Scenarios & Sourcebooks index has already expanded from 5 to 25 pages since its first release, with Nick adding in new titles that have appeared in the Jonstown Compendium. Fortunately, once you buy the index ($0.50), you automatically receive all future updates!

Each Jonstown Compendium title is presented with clear information, including content analysis, characters, settings, and complexity:


Nick's index also features a Where in the World? map showing every scenario's location:


Here's what Designers & Dragons featured reviewer Shannon Appelcline says about this handy work:

Amazing little booklet, codifying everything currently available from the Jonstown Compendium... This attractively laid-out book steps through every adventure currently on the Compendium (with attention also paid to sourcebooks and accessories) and tells you whether you'd want it or not by highlighting adventure location, book size, book price, and basic information about the product. The fact that this is all written by a Gloranthan sage makes it all the more useful.

If you are interested in making purchases from the Compendium, this is obviously the first thing to pick up, especially as it continues to grow.

Jonstown Compendium titles Nov 2020

Neil Gibson ($8.95, 92 page PDF)

"She could see them now. A jumble of disparate silhouettes at the edge of the campfire. Through the chittering throng a magisterial figure approached. This broo was considerably larger than any she has seen before. Naked save for a loincloth of indeterminate origin it strode into the firelight. Huge white horns with innumerable carved runes rose from its muscled skull. Pointing an evil, curved blade at Vasana it bellowed 'I am Immortal White Horn, son of Thed and Wakboth’s fist. We have come for you Lightbringer and we are LEGION!'"

Legion is a chaos NPC supplement for GMs running Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha games.
Broo are numerous and varied adversaries. This supplement provides 96 pre-rolled chaos enemies from the aspirant lay members to deadly rune lord / priests.

Remembering Caroman
Michael Paul O'Sullivan ($6.99, 48 page PDF)

The first Sea Season out from under the yoke of Lunar oppression is late in coming. Early crops are slow to germinate, lambs are few and small. The clan’s ancestors are uneasy. A disquiet within the Spirit World, simmering since the Lunar invasion twenty-four years ago is now bleeding into the Middle World. The land is weak because the bond between the living and the dead is strained. An encounter with a melancholy soul sets the adventurers off on a quest to find one soul among the countless lost. Can they find what has been forgotten? Will they have the courage, honour and loyalty to appease the ancestors and stave off a season of hunger and uncertainty?

This adventure explores some of the complex relationships the inhabitants of Glorantha have with the Spirit World. Whether from the guidance offered by a clan’s ancestors, support from cult elementals or as a font of magical power, the Spirit World’s influence cannot be underestimated.

Simon Phipp ($10.00, 81 page PDF)

Ready to do the Impossible? Come along and discover the Secrets of Heroquesting in this all-new Jonstown Compedium! Inside you will find loads of secrets for Game Masters and Adventurers alike.

Rubble Redux: Insula of the Waning Moon
Drew Baker ($10.95, 103 page PDF)

The first of a series of resource books for Runequest GM's detailing an insula or city block that makes up the ruins of the Big Rubble in Prax, set in the rich fantasy world of Glorantha created by Greg Stafford and friends.

Based on real archaeological plans reworked for roleplay gaming, each publication provides a realistic and practical description of a section of ruins with accompanying floor-plans and suggested mini encounters ready for insertion into your campaign.


Kingdom of the Flamesword
JK Revell ($10.00, 161 page PDF)

Seshnela is a land of knights and wizards, of humble peasants and demure damsels. It is a rich land, of cities and farms, of castles and wild forests. Ancient ruins are everywhere, reminders of past glory, and repositories of forbidden, ancient lore, and of their terrible inhuman guardians. Heretics scheme to undermine the foundations of the Church, and witches cackle in the shadows, cursing the faithful.

"One God, One Church, One King!" cry the Rokari, and the people of Seshnela assemble under the banner of the flamesword and the symbol of the Church, ready to bring unity to the world. Whether it wants it or not.

Written for HeroQuest, Kingdom of the Flamesword is the follow up to The Book of Glorious Joy, expanding that non-canonical view of the Gloranthan West to the Kingdom of Seshnela and the Rokari Church.

Forged in Blood and Snow
JK Revell ($10.00, 141 pages)

To outsiders, Jonatela is a grim land, its castles forbidding, the life of its people harsh and lacking in luxury. But this is an illusion; the Jonatings are as passionate a people now as they always were, fond of song and dance, living every moment to its fullest potential. In this lies the strength of its warriors, the practicality of its wizards, and even the determination of its peasants. For every Jonating, no matter their station, knows that the world is harsh and unforgiving. Struggle is a fact of life, and those that submit fall by the wayside and are lost. Battle is commonplace, and pestilence and famine always wait in the wings, ready to sow their own discord.

This is a land of peril and dark passions. A land forged in blood and snow.

Written for HeroQuest, Forged in Blood and Snow is a follow up to The Book of Glorious Joy, expanding that non-canonical view of the Gloranthan West to the Kingdom of Jonatela.

In a Merry Green Vale
Vivien Prigent ($19.99, 165 page PDF)

This sourcebook offers a comprehensive history of the Lysang clan and a full presentation of its ring, bloodlines, sacred mysteries (including a fully-developed heroquest) along with simple game mechanics to stage the clan’s political life. Alongside the clan’s economy, a Lunar slave farm receives a complete description. The chapter detailing the neighbouring clans focuses on the Malani tribe recently joined by the Lysang clan.

A Tale of Woodcraft
Diana Probst, Dom Twist, Beer With Teeth ($5.00, 18 page PDF)

A Tale of Woodcraft is an adventure ready to drop into any Dragon Pass campaign where there is an elven forest. A chance encounter on the road leads to the discovery of a spy's dead drop, but an elven peace treaty could be jeopardised by where it is left, and the meeting of peace is right here, right now...

This evening-length adventure is designed to slot in to any campaign, for a change of pace while travelling, or as an unexpected opportunity to hunt down Lunars in the local area. Best set shortly after Dragonrise, it is flexible enough to be used anywhere that the Lunars are no longer the dominant force.

Reviews from R'lyeh says: "A Tale of Woodcraft presents an entertaining roleplaying challenge, a mystery, and some action, that all together neatly packaged on route somewhere for easy addition to a campaign.


Storm Rams
Akhelas, Austin Conrad ($1.75, 15 page PDF)

Filling the Air from horizon to horizon, the noble Storm Rams are a new spirit for your game of RuneQuest. They are the embodiment of rain-giving clouds, found anywhere throughout Glorantha.

Reviews from R'lyeh says, "Storm Rams presents an interesting embodiment of the storms and the rain, pleasingly from differing points of view, which the Game Master can work into her campaign."

Children of Melikaphkaz
Akhelas, Austin Conrad ($1.00, 9 page PDF)

This month's issue of Monster of the Month previews material from a forthcoming work for the Jonstown Compendium, Melikaphkaz: the O-God of Traps. Melikaphkaz is a Darkness god worshiped by those who build traps and defenses to create shelter in a hostile world.

The Troupe of Terror
Austin Conrad ($1.50, 9 page PDF)

The Troupe of Terror presents a gang of six man-eating ogres with which the gamemaster can terrorize their players. Woken to Illumination by the magical performances of the Puppeteer Troupe, they represent the worst evils enabled by that mystical consciousness. Now, these ogres roam Dragon Pass in the guise of minstrels and clowns wielding the reality-warping illusions of the Puppeteer.

The Pendulum & The Pit
Innes Smith (Free, 48 page PDF)

In one night, after days of heavy rain, an unholy pit will open up under a city street and swallow a house whole. The City Guard, desperate to evacuate the street, finds a household, three doors along, refusing to leave. It is The House that Was Always There, known to be house of charity, a home for orphans. To save lives, the adventurers will be tasked with this life or death diplomacy ~ and depending on their talents, will either be invited in through the front door, or will crawl up through the basement through a horrific charnel pit.

For a party of adventurers set in any large city in Esrolia or Sartar, this novel adventure will seamlessly fit into any campaign and provide a taste of the West!


Graeme Atkinson ($4.95, 31 page PDF)

Prior to the Ulerian holy week, the peaceful community of Apple Lane comes together to celebrate the upcoming harvest with a festival of thanks. The children of the community recreate the classic Lightbringer Quest under the watchful eye of the local Thane.

This year however, something is different. The children chosen for the quest seem to resemble the gods, important digntaries from Clearwine and Kero Fin actually show up. The adventurers must keep the festival peace, entertain and impress high profile guests, lead the children on a quest and everyone had better enjoy themselves. How hard can it be?

"Since helping take over the reins at Chaosium five years ago, my writing has mostly had to be licensing, media releases and the like, rather than RPG stuff. So I am delighted my new RuneQuest scenario 'Fortunate Sun' is out now in the Jonstown Compendium, our community content platform for gaming in Glorantha at DriveThruRPG!

The adventure is based on a convention scenario I wrote with Brian Hebert way back in 1993. It was a great pleasure working with Jonathan Webb, Nick Brooke, Dario Corallo, and Ludovic Chabant revising and expanding this work for RQG, and seeing it updated with splendid new layout, art and maps.

You can find 'Fortunate Sun' in the new remastered edition of Sandheart Vol 2, the middle book in Jon's best-selling series of adventures in Sun County, Prax - that place in Glorantha (for all its faults) that is closest to my heart."

"Sun folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooh, they’re Gold through and through,
And when the band plays 'Hail to the Count'
Ooh, they point the Harpoon at you, Lord"​

Fortunate Sun: A chance encounter with a group of Sun Dome Templars leads to shared nightmares - portents of a catastrophe that needs to be avoided. Haunted by their dreams the militia must track into the blasted chaparral of the Wastes to avert disaster.

We are truly in a Gloranthan Age of Wonders!​

MOB's Foreword of the recently released Jonstown Compendium title Life of Moonson Book One - The Characters.


In addition to Chaosium’s beautiful new RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha line, just recently the entire corpus of second-edition RuneQuest Classics (Pavis, Big Rubble, Borderlands, and the rest) has satisfyingly once again become available in print. And adorning these official publications is the veritable explosion of amazing independent Gloranthan content being produced for the Jonstown Compendium, Chaosium’s community content program on DriveThruRPG.


Just as we can now have freshly-printed copies of Cults of Prax in our hands, an exciting aspect of the Jonstown Compendium is the opportunity to reprise independently-produced Gloranthan gold from the past. And so it is a source of great pleasure and pride to see Reaching Moon Megacorp’s Life of Moonson back in an all-new edition!

Josntown Compendium Logo
The freeform “master packs” used by game directors to run these live-action role-playing games (“LARPs”) – which were staged at RQ/ Glorantha Cons around the world throughout the nineties and beyond – were produced as fat, small-print spiral-bound tomes in extremely limited numbers. If you didn’t actually attend an auction at a Gloranthan convention, your chances of finding a copy were slim.


The Jonstown Compendium changes all of that! It’s on the largest RPG download store on the Internet, and creators don’t need up-front funds to handle printing or distribution. Templates help make titles shine, and there’s a strong and growing community of supportive Jonstown Compendium writers and artists offering support. Furthermore, with Greg Stafford’s implicit blessing (“Your Glorantha Will Vary”), the Jonstown Compendium cheerfully dispenses with any need for strict adherence to official canon.


So, following the glorious return of A Rough Guide to Glamour – do check this companion volume out if you haven’t already, you’re in for another treat – Moonson has triumphantly returned! Graced with beautiful new layout, helpful notes from the authors, and deliriously wonderful character illustrations by Dario Corallo, a new edition of this calibre is something we could only have dreamed of back in the 90s.


I had enormous fun playing Moonson Argenteus himself at Life of Moonson’s first showing, at GloranthaCon V in Victoria, British Columbia in July 1997. Tales of the devious machinations, treacherous intrigues, and heroic exploits of that LARP, and its subsequent runs in Melbourne, Australia (Jan 1998) and Leicester, UK (July 1998), are still fondly recalled by those fortunate enough to have taken part.

MOB as Moonson
It is wonderful that, through the Jonstown Compendium, these illustrious characters and their stories are now open to the imaginations of a whole new Gloranthaphile audience.

Jonstown Compendium titles selected by Pookie for Christmas Dozen 2020

Prolific reviewer Pookie's annual (post-)Christmas Dozen list - "what you should purchase yourself to read and play in the months to come" - recommends two works from our Jonstown Compendium community content program at DriveThruRPG. This is a testament to the depth and quality of what creators are doing here for gaming in the world of Glorantha!

Reviews from R'lyeh says Andrew Logan Montgomery's Six Seasons in Sartar is "a fantastic introduction to a fantastic world, one of the first titles a prospective Game Master of RuneQuest should purchase from the Jonstown Compendium."

And says Shawn and Peggy Carpenter's Valley of Plenty is "is another great introduction to roleplaying in Glorantha, which takes both players and their characters step-by-step into the setting, its mythology, and drama."

In the shadow of the Quivini, at the dawn of the Hero Wars, a young Seven Mothers convert began collecting stories of rebel warbands hiding in the wilds of occupied Sartar. Among these accounts were repeated stories of one particular warband... clanless, tribeless, bound to a draconic spirit of immense power. Some called them traitors and insurrectionists. Others painted them as folk heroes and freedom fighters. They were called the Company of the Dragon. And some say they helped the Prince of Sartar win her throne.

Close Encounters of the Sartar Kind
Eric Bauge ($1.78, 11 page PDF)

Encounter charts are a great way to add some element of randomness into a campaign. They help maintain the illusion that the world doesn’t revolve around the adventurers, but has a life of its own. Sometime, a random encounter might even become a regular character in a campaign, as an ally, or as a recuring enemy. Tables and rules needed to run random encounters for 11 types of terrain in Sartar.

One of the latest additions to the Jonstown Compendium is a whopper: 2000 pages! Of Pimper's Block: The Complete Collection, Six Seasons in Sartar and Company of the Dragon author Andrew Logan Montgomery says:

"Really, this is the sort of thing the Jonstown Compendium was made for. Pimper's Block The Complete Collection is the kind of utility that a publisher like Chaosium would not want to tackle, but which in retrospect everyone is going to want. I certainly will never been hard-pressed for NPCs again... Look, if you run Runequest this product is worth ten times its price. I cannot imagine any GM regretting the purchase."

Here are the most recent new releases on our community content platform at DriveThruRPG for all things RuneQuest and Glorantha:

Jonstown Compendium releases Sept 21

Michael O'Brien


Released today on the Jonstown Compendium is The Black Spear, the latest community content from 2021 Gold ENNIE award-winning and best-selling creator Nick Brooke. Nick says of his new work:

"This adventure grew from my love of epic quests that seem to journey back through time into myth as they approach their ultimate goal: Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Robert Holdstock’s Lavondyss or Peter Jackson’s cinematic Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also liked the idea of having reality break down the closer the adventurers get to Argrath, as his dragon-dreams bleed through into Glorantha, making previously mundane places increasingly symbolic and heroquesty."

Check it out and the other new releases that magnificently show that the Jonstown Compendium continues to go from strength-to-strength!


The Black Spear
Nick Brooke and Mike O'Connor ($19.95, 181 page PDF)

Nick Brooke says, "An epic saga of the Hero Wars, festooned with heroquests and deep Gloranthan weirdness. Probably the strangest thing I’ve ever written. Designed as a follow-up to The Duel at Dangerford, but it also works as a stand-alone mini-campaign. Canonically set in Sea Season 1627, with suggestions at the back of the book for changing things around. Illustrated lavishly by Mike O’Connor: 50+ pictures, one or two songs, some poetry, not many stat-blocks."

A preview of the first of The Black Spear's seven Acts has been bundled with PDF versions of Nick's Jonstown Compendium release The Duel at Dangerford: if you've already bought this title look for updates in your Library when you're logged in to DriveThruRPG.

JK Revell ($4.00, 25 page PDF)

The Rathori are the “werebears” of Glorantha. Children of Rathor, the Great White Bear, they inhabit the wide pine forests of the northwest, beyond the fringes of civilisation. But their life is not a peaceful idyll. The forests can be home to fell creatures and hostile tribes, and the civilised folk of the south press at the eaves, felling trees for new cropland.

The Rathori’s defences against such threats include their deep bonds with the spirits of the woodlands, granting them potent magic from the Other Side. For almost a hundred years, during the Syndic’s Ban, the Rathori slept, oblivious to the outside world and safe from its incursions. Just over two decades ago, they began to awake, finding the world changed, but no safer than before.

Now they must find their new place within it.

This is a guide to the Rathori people and their world. It is written for both RuneQuest and QuestWorlds, and the relevant rulebooks will be required to make full use of it. For example, spell descriptions (including those for shapeshifting) are not duplicated here.

Jallupell Goodwind
Akhelas, Diana Probst ($2.00, 14 page PDF)

Years ago, a Lunar Hero and a Wind Lord of Orlanth fought a terrific battle which led to their mutual demise. Buried together in a single grave, the mingled remains wove their souls together. Now this tormented ghost haunts the dreaded Valley of the Blight, in the lands of the Cinsina Tribe.

In this Monster of the Month "mini-adventure," your adventurers will get to:
  • Fight or heal the wounded souls of two Heroes
  • Discover the secrets of their fatal duel
  • Strive to restore the Valley's Fertility—returning its spirits to Ernalda's bosom!
This short adventure is intended to provide one gamemaster, and four to six adventurers, with an evening of play.


"The Black Spear artwork is by Mike O’Connor, a brilliant collaborator who contributed more than 50 illustrations. I am absolutely delighted with the way this has turned out! I can't wait for you to get your hands on this palimpsest of deviant visions scribbled over ancient lore!" — Nick Brooke.

Michael O'Brien


The God Skin & Mad Prax is the fourth and final volume in Jon Webb's 'Sandheart' series of adventures set in Sun County, Prax. It features the scenarios 'The God Skin' by Sandheart creator Jon Webb, and 'Mad Prax: Beyond Sun Dome' by Chaosium's Michael O'Brien, author of the original RuneQuest 3rd Ed release Sun County (1992). Involving the player characters in a truly momentous event marking the beginning of the Hero Wars, 'Mad Prax' could, if you wish, serve as a fitting end to a Sandheart campaign.

"What began as a one-person operation (Jon) evolved into what I think is a best-practice example of community content creation, with Jon gathering the talents of Glorantha-loving layout experts, cartographers, artists and writers to produce what have become some of the most well-received and popular titles in the Jonstown Compendium... It’s immensely gratifying for me to see that, coming up to 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." —MOB, Chaosium Inc.

The four-part Sandheart series is available in the Jonstown Compendium at DriveThruRPG in PDF and print formats. And to celebrate the publication of Book 4, prices of the first three books have been discounted by $2.00 in all formats. PDFs are now $9.95, and hardcovers are just $19.95.

Sandheart series

The God Skin & Mad Prax" Sandheart Vol. 4

Two further adventures in Sun County – two further journeys to take. Totalling 105 pages, 56 illustrations, six maps, one VTT map and nine handouts with layout by Nick Brooke and superb art/cartography from Mark Baldwin, Dario Corallo, Kris Herbert, Jacob Webb and Ludovic Chabant.

Sandheart map Mad Prax

In The God Skin Incident, a murder and robbery lead the Sandheart militia into a confrontation where they have to make choices of who to side with. After the dust has settled they must quest for holy vengeance across the plains of Prax. The God Skin Incident is situated in Sun County and Prax and is expected to take between four and six sessions to complete.

Mark Baldwin art - Sandheart vol 4
In Mad Prax, the Sandheart militia find themselves drawn into the midst of a great historical happening. Written by Michael O'Brien (author of Sun County) this adventure is based on the 1991 convention scenario 'Mad Prax: Beyond Sun Dome'.

Sandheart art Vol 4 - Dario Corallo
All four volumes of the best-selling Sandheart series of Sun County adventures for RuneQuest are now available in full colour print format at DriveThruRPG!
  1. Volume One: Tales of the Sun County Militia
  2. Volume Two: The Corn Dolls & Fortunate Sun
  3. Volume Three: Tradition
  4. Volume Four: The God Skin & Mad Prax

Chaosium's Michael O'Brien (MOB) writes:

"I was delighted to receive print copies of the final volume of the Sandheart series today (Vol 4), featuring my scenario 'Mad Prax: Beyond Sun Dome'!

The Sandheart series of Sun County adventures began as a one-person operation (Jonathan Webb), evolving into what I think is a best practice example of community content creation, with Jon gathering the talents of Glorantha-loving layout experts, cartographers, artists, and writers, to produce what have become some of the most well-received and popular titles in the Jonstown Compendium.

For me, it was great to collaborate creatively again with Nick Brooke, just like we did back in the days of Tales of the Reaching Moon, and a special surprise to reconnect and work again with Mark Baldwin, who illustrated the spec RuneQuest manuscript I sent to the Avalon Hill in 1991. That spec manuscript of course became Sun County, published in 1992, but sadly without Mark’s art. So it is especially delightful that, some thirty years later, his vision of the Sun Dome lands and its inhabitants has finally reached the audience it deserves.

Other community creators involved in the Sandheart series include Laura Baldwin, Ludovic Chabant, Dario Corallo, Katrin Dirim, Colie Dixon, Brian Hebert, Kristi Herbert, Ollie Larwood, Darren Page-Mitchell, Diana Probst, Shaun Rimmer, Beverley Webb, Jacob Webb, and many playtesters!
Sun County

I was honoured when Sandheart creator Jon Webb asked me to write a foreword for the first volume, one of the inaugural releases of the Jonstown Compendium.

In that first forward I noted that these days we’re fortunate to be living in an all-new “RuneQuest Renaissance”, with the Jonstown Compendium giving independent Gloranthan creators access to a worldwide audience in ways we didn’t even dream about back in the early days. And by Yamsur’s Truss, haven't creators in the Jonstown Compendium grasped that opportunity!

I enjoyed contributing two scenarios myself, the aforementioned 'Mad Prax' in Vol 4 and 'Fortunate Sun' in Vol 2 (which recently reached Gold bestseller status).

As amply demonstrated by the popular reception of the Sandheart series, and other Jonstown Compendium releases like Nick Brooke’s recent and most wonderful Black Spear: it’s immensely gratifying for me to see that, coming up to 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. — MOB.

Focused on Dragon Pass and the surrounding regions (Peloria, Pent, Prax and Maniria), this volume presents details of the warriors, soldiers and mercenaries of the opening periods of the Hero Wars, their arms and armor, their cultures, histories and organization, the terrain they traveled, the battlefields on which they fought, their fortifications, their magic, and their gods.

Army Lists provide details of the regiments and other entities that fought in this epic conflict, supplemented by numerous illustrations of the participants.

Bonus chapters:
