RuneQuest Resources

Cover of RuneQuest (3rd edition)

RuneQuest is one of the oldest table-top roleplaying games, with editions appearing in 1978 (The Chaosium), 1979 (Chaosium), 1984 (Avalon Hill/Chaosium) and an unpublished RuneQuest: Adventures in Glorantha (c1994). In 1998 another, completely redesigned game was planned to be published under the RuneQuest name (Avalon Hill), but has since been released as RuneSlayer. In 2006 another edition, in the tradition of the first three, was published (Mongoose).

RPG Review hosts a RuneQuest list which has existed for many years prior as the runequest-rules list. We also keep an archive of previous mailing lists dating back over twenty years of other RuneQuest lists.

Also, we all host a copy of the Michael O'Brien Glorantha/RuneQuest pages, which are now offline and were last updated in 2000.

Another contribution is Tim Rice's An integer programming approach to RuneQuest 3e training calculations. This paper is licensed CC BY-SA-ND-NC.

Recently we have adopted the archives and resources pages from the RuneQuest3 Yahoo! group mailing list, which has since been put into archive mode.

The following are the RuneQuest mailing lists over the years.
