An Unofficial Buyer's Guide to RuneQuest and Glorantha


Welcome to an UNOFFICIAL buyer's guide to the game of RuneQuest and its setting, Glorantha.

Have you ever been surprised to discover a product you can buy for RuneQuest or Glorantha that you hadn't previously even known existed? Did you know that you can still get brand-new copies of that Gloranthan fanzine that quit publishing 15 years ago? Have you ever bought a RuneQuest book and then been annoyed to discover it was half the price on a different website?

Have you ever asked ... which Gloranthan fiction is still available to buy right now? How many Gloranthan boardgames are for sale today? How many languages is RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha available in, and what are they? Where can you buy a Seven Mothers apron? Does anyone make a Gloranthan dragon snail miniature? Which artists are selling prints of their Gloranthan art? Where can I find alternatives to the standard RQG character sheet?

If so ... then this Unofficial Buyer's Guide is probably for you.

This guide aims to list and describe everything that is currently available to buy, or that you can get for free. I'm pretty sure that most fans will find a few surprises inside!

My intention is for the Buyer's Guide to have very little overlap with Rick Meints' Meints Index to Glorantha, a much more comprehensive survey. It also doesn't conflict with Nick Brooke's excellent Jonstown Compendium Catalogue. If you want to read about the Jonstown Compendium's many marvels of community content - look there.

Here is some of what is described across the sixty pages of this Unofficial Guide:

Art • Badges • Bags • Boardgames • Character sheets • Classic reprints • Clothing • Coins • Comics • Computer games • Cults • Dice • Dice trays • Discounts • Drinkware • Fiction • Free stuff • Game aids • Histories • Homeware • Indexes • International editions • Magazines • Merchandise • Miniatures • Music • Online resources • RPGs • Rules • Scenarios • Stickers • Tokens

If this Guide proves popular, I plan to update it on an irregular basis at least until the end of 2024, so please check back here in your DTRPG library for any new version.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
