Again, with special thanks to Bruce Mason, Mongoose Publishing have just posted the entire Blood of Orlanth epic, fully updated for the RuneQuest II rules, for free download on their site. You can grab a copy now at: mongoosepublishing.com/home/detail.php?qsID=1777

It starts as a journey down the Solthi river in search of a thief. Orlanthi barbarians, imperialistic Wyrmfriends, and even the mysterious and power-hungry sorcerers of the God Learner empire clash in their search for a mystic artifact, and the Player Characters are thrust into the middle of a sudden and ferocius war.

The Legend of Orlanth the Martyr, almost completely forgotten, offers a pivotal stepping stone between the myths of men and the myths of dragons. To the Orlanthi it is holy. To the empire of Wyrm’s Friends it is blasphemous. To the God Learners it is power. Each faction struggles for the ultimate prize: the Blood of Orlanth.

Suitable for Player Characters of any faction, Blood of Orlanth immerses players in the unique world of Glorantha. This adventure shows off everything that makes Glorantha great, culminating in a full HeroQuest.

A man fights for his home. A dragon fights with fire. A sorcerer does not fight, but poisons with lies and spells. How will you fight for the Blood of Orlanth?

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
