My campaign is pretty military orientated. One portion was to have the
maniple dropped off during autumn and have to march a huge distance.
Foraging became the order of the day and characters (and NPC's) soon got
desperate enough to start looting towns on any pretext that said town was
batting for the other side (civil war background).

But I suppose the best kind of reference will be Caesars Gallic War books.
I think if you delete the phrase "Secured our corn" the books would shrink
to half their size.

So Mongoose cancelled RuneQuestII (renamed it legend or Wayfarer or
something). Old news. I see there is a new mega size Pavis book out from
Issaries? But that's for HeroQuest (thought that system was dead?).

who is publishing RuneQuest and has anything come out? I have seen little
further news. Man the cannon is becoming confusing, then again on the
other side you have D&D vs Pathfinder which is an older version of D&D and
I believe even Hackmaster is pretty much AD&D 1st ed?

Nope. HQ2 is publishing and plenty of Glorantha-related goodness is coming
out.

Hi all,

Yes, as Ravi has directed, RQ now has a new publisher, The Design
Mechanism. The company consists of myself and Pete Nash, both long-time RQ
players, GMs and fans. We produced Mongoose's RuneQuest II and, when the
license lapsed, decided to keep the RQ brand going by taking on the duty
ourselves.

RuneQuest's sixth edition should see release this summer. Our website has
more details, art samples and page previews.

We hope you like it. We intend to make RQ as strong as its ever been and,
hopefully, return it to its roots.

Lawrence
