Hi! Welcome to the 27th year of Pete's RuneQuest & Roleplaying! This must be one of the oldest still-maintained RPG sites on the web. A lot of material has accumulated over the years. You'll find adventures, art, NPCs, and tons of other stuff here. A lot of it was created for the RuneQuest system, but almost all of it can easily be used with any fantasy system or setting.
It's with great sadness I note that the primary creator of the brilliant mechanics of the RuneQuest system has passed: Steve Perrin. I corresponded with Steve occasionally, and a nicer, more polite person would be very hard to find. He was also hands-down the greatest game designer I've ever known. He will be missed!
New: The site has been overdue for a complete redesign for a long time; it needs to be more mobile-friendly. I'm doing that bit by bit as I edit old pages. Also, I added links to my book recommendations and reviews in my Non-Game Favorites.
Scenarios - 12 scenarios, ranging from large to small.
Rules & Articles - RQ Homebrew, Game Design, and Articles
