New This Week – RuneQuest & Traveller

By on 13 April 2010

Three new books are winging their way to your local games store this week, all hot from the presses from Mongoose. For Traveller fans, they expand space yet further with Reft Sector and, for RuneQuest, there is the Monster Coliseum and Glorantha.

Reft Sector
Continuing the exploration of the Third Imperium, Reft Sector provides new ground for your players to explore, colonise and capitalise! Part of the Great Rift, Reft Sector is a true wilderness, with opportunities abounding for lucky or skilled Travellers – or those on the run from more civilised space. With a complete history and every subsector and planet covered, Reft Sector opens fresh ground for Traveller players, allowing them to interact with the inhabitants of these new worlds.

Monster Coliseum
Foes, beasts and creatures from every corner of the world can be found in this tome, as well as detailed rules on how they clash in the centre of the Monster Coliseum! Whether you are looking to populate your world with rare and exotic fiends to foil your players, or simply provide them with some gladiatorial entertainment, this book contains just what you need for the new RuneQuest II rules. Monster Coliseum, like the rest of the core RuneQuest line, is a luxurious book, with a completely leather-bound cover.

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.
