Press [Chaosium] 'The Six Paths' is now available in print, with the proceeds supporting trans charities (Jonstown Compendium)

Michael O'Brien


The Six Paths is Edan Jones's RuneQuest sourcebook on gender among the Heortling Tribe of Dragon Pass. Beautifully illustrated by 2021 Greg Stafford Award winner Katrin Dirim, it features the cults of Heler, Nandan and Vinga, and includes six example characters exploring the gender identities.

Margaret Gill, Katrin Dirim, and Alex Hall all provided guidance, and the new 28 page softcover print edition was prepared by Nick Brooke.

This Jonstown Compendium release is Pay-What-You-Want*, with the creators asking you to please consider donating whatever amount you would have paid for this to your local LGBT+ charity.

The author share of proceeds will be donated to the UK charity Mermaids, while Chaosium's share will be donated to the Transgender Law Center.

*if you order the print version, the minimum you must pay is USD$3.29 to cover the materials cost.

'The Six Paths' is now a GOLD Bestseller, all the more remarkable as it's a "Pay-What-You-Want" charity product*. Edan Jones's Jonstown Compendium title is about non-traditional gender roles among the Orlanthi barbarians of Glorantha, setting for the RuneQuest TTRPG. The book features beautiful illustrations by Katrin Dirim.

Chaosium's share of the proceeds is donated to the Transgender Law Centre.


*remarkable, because - as long experience on DTRPG has shown us - the amount people typically pay for Pay-What-You-Want products is $0.00.
