Hi! Welcome to the 17th year of Pete's RuneQuest & Roleplaying! A lot of material has accumulated over the last decade. 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.
NEWS: Mongoose Publishing ceased publication of their version of RuneQuest (including their "RuneQuest 2") in June 2011. Their association with Issaries and Glorantha has been terminated. They're publishing their own version of the core rules as a new roleplaying system. Meanwhile, Chaosium continues to produce material for their Basic Roleplaying system, which is a modular and multi-genre version of the RuneQuest/BRP rule set. And on July 16, 2011, a new game company called The Design Mechanism announced that they would be coming out with a new edition of RuneQuest, RuneQuest 6th Edition, under agreement with Issaries in early 2012 (update on September 27, 2012: It's out now). Check out RuneQuest News to clear up all confusion!
I've begun posting the campaign blog of The Cave of Worlds, a multi-genre campaign I've been running
for two years using the classic RuneQuest III system with
modifications. We're up to session #18. Earlier, I
finally finished "Sheetless Roleplaying", detailing an approach to tabletop
roleplaying which is startlingly immersive and intense. I've
uploaded two new skills for classic RuneQuest III sorcery.
Before that, twenty-four annotated zines from the early
1990s and an article ("An Introduction to Live
Roleplaying") were added to the Zines and Articles
sections, respectively. Complete copies
of Interregnum #1 and #2 were also added.
