Well, depending on my real life workload there should be an answer to your
plea sometime this year, when I finish the Glyphmaster (working title). It's
designed to replicate the mechanics (but not the setting) of the original
system, so it's the retro-clone you need (and it will be a free download).
Google the Gringle's Pawnshop forums for more information. In fact it was
inspired by the PDF release of the Gloranthan Classics.

Just give me a minute!

In the meantime, the closest match in print or PDF would be Chaosium's Basic
Gamesmaster / Basic Creatures / Basic Magic monographs. They're essentially
RQ3 with the Gloranthan references stripped out - not RQ2, but close enough
to run the Gloranthan Classics with some modification.
