These game rules and a new adventure—The Broken Tower—preview the new edition of RuneQuest, developed in close consultation with the original designers and creators of RuneQuest and of Glorantha.
Glorantha is the setting of RuneQuest, one of the oldest and most influential roleplaying games ever published. A mythic world of mortals and gods, myths and cults, monsters and heroes. In Glorantha, the Runes permeate everything, and mastery of Runes allows astonishing feats of bravery and magic. Glorantha is ancient, and has known many ages; now it is at the brink of the greatest conflict it has ever known… the Hero Wars.
The Broken Tower, set in the heart of the Dragon Pass, is suitable for up to 5 adventurers and one gamemaster; the Roleplaying in Glorantha Quick Start is complete with all the rules needed to play.
