	My understanding is none.
	Mongoose have released a new edition of their own RuneQuest, 
significantly different in rules, which they are calling RuneQuest 2, 
but I think everyone but them will probably be calling MRQ2 in order 
to avoid confusion.
	My understanding is that the Basic Roleplaying System 
currently offered by Chaosium
	seems to be some bits of rules from Call of Cthulhu, some 
from RQ3, with the rules for magic/other extraordinary powers from 
several different settings (Stormbringer, Hawkmoon, Elfquest, 
Superworld, etc). Several of the supplements for it look to be 
straight RQ3 reissues, though.
	Anyone taken a look at it?

PS just about everything ever made by Chaosium that isn't part of a 
game line sold to someone else (like Pendragon) seems to be available 
as a PDF from them now. Not just odd games like Nephilim, but going 
all the way back to All The Worlds Monsters, beloved of munchkin D&D 
players in the early 80s!
