Instead of getting the RQ Deluxe rules on Amazon.com, I'd suggest buying
Chaosium's D100 rules instead. And/or the monograph editions of Basic
Roleplaying, which includes all non-Gloranthan RQ3 rules. Or Steve Perrin's
Quest rules.

Any of those would be preferable to Mongoose RQ. Why encourage poachers?
Particularly ones who clearly never understood what made RQ great?
