Opposite you will find a 9-page sneak preview of 'Shores of Korantia', the latest RuneQuest release that will be available in early May. Written by Jonathan Drake, 'Shores of Korantia' describes the Korantine city states of Thennla, the world first introduced in 'Age of Treason: The Iron Simulacrum'. The book details Korantine life, the cities, political and religious structures, cults, magic, and much more - including rules for sea-faring and naval combat. The book rounds-out out with three scenarios: 'Varoteg's Rascals', 'The House of Valsus' and 'Prishad's Daughter', which can be run together as a campaign.
More news on pre-orders will be released when the book goes to print.
At 2pm EST, February 4th, 2014, we will be launching our RuneQuest Bundle of Holding over at http://bundleofholding.com. This is a great chance for people to buy our PDFs at a remarkable price, for a limited period of time.
10% of all sales go to charity. Design Mechanism is supporting two: Macmillan Cancer Support and Electronic Frontiers.
If you've been thinking about buying RuneQuest 6, this is superb way of buying into the system.
Hessaret's Treasure is a brand new, standalone scenario based in The Realm from 'Book of Quests' but usable in any fantasy setting. Its a PDF-only release at present - watch for details for a Print on Demand option.
A great first adventure for RQ, its suitable for 3-6 characters and mixes city intrigue, double-crosses, wilderness survival and dungeon-delving.
Visit the Products page for details on how to buy the Special Collector's Edition, hardback, slip case, edition of the rules. We have a limited number available for sale and we won't be reprinting the book in this format once stock is exhausted!
You can also only buy RQ6 in this format through the Design Mechanism website - it isn't available anywhere else.
New to the Downloads page is a series of articles published in Fenix magazine and penned by Pete Nash. Its a diverse mix, well worth reading, and our thanks goes to the Fenix crew for their permission to republish these articles here. Continue reading...
Gencon 2013 is this week. Design Mechanism will be there, represented by Lawrence, sharing a booth with Moon Design Publications. Not sure what number the booth is, as the current Exhibitors' Map on the Gencon website still hasn't been updated, but we're next door to Cubicle 7 (Booth 643). Look out for a huge RQ6 banner.
I'll have copies of RQ, Book of Quests and Monster Island available to buy. I'll also happily run some demo sessions and, if there's demand, a full scenario one evening.
Monster Island, Pete Nash's magnum opus, is now available for pre-orders.
The book costs $30.00 and comes with a full-colour, A2, pull-out map by Colin Driver. Buying direct from us gives you immediate access to the PDF version of Monster Island, free of charge. The physical copies will ship from our warehouse at the end of July.
