Two new books will be winging their way to the shelves of your local games store this week, one for RuneQuest & Glorantha, the other for Earthdawn.

Races of Glorantha, Volume One
Together in one volume, the essential deep-dive into three of Glorantha’s most fascinating and exotic Elder Races: the Dragonewts, Durulz and Uz. In these pages you will learn all you need to know about these elder races for your Gloranthan game. Each is detailed in terms of culture, history, religion, philosophies and biology, revised and updated for RuneQuest II. With detailed cults, new spells and fascinating mythology, Races of Glorantha is an invaluable insight into roleplaying these unique species, bringing greater diversity and depth to campaigns.

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.
