You can order our books in one of three ways.

1. You can order any of our products direct from Design Mechanism using the 'Store' tool, below. If you are a first-time customer you will be asked to create an account first, and then log-in to shop. Buying any book from us direct also ensures you receive the PDF version free of charge. Once your order is processed you'll be able to download the PDF from us at no cost.

2. You can also order through our partner, Moon Design Publications. Click on their link to be taken to their site. Here you'll be able to order RuneQuest in combination with several of their fine Glorantha products.

3. You can buy PDFs of our products without the print copy from us by choosing the PDF product. Please, don't choose the PDF if you're buying the print copy; you'll just end up with two PDFs and will have spent more than you needed to!

4. You can also buy the PDF through DrivethruRPG. Just click on their link to be taken to Design Mechanism's storefront.

5. We also sell some of our titles as Print on Demand books via Lulu. Check out our Lulu Page for details.

New: Luther Arkwright (May 2015)

Not one Earth, but an infinity of them, existing in parallel continua, their own paths, own histories, own futures, own mistakes. Most are unaware of the existence of a multiverse; but some parallels know that Earth is not alone, but mirrored.

ZeroZero knows. It watches the parallels, ensures their stability. ZeroZero knows that instability spreads like a disease, infecting each parallel until a critical mass is reached and cataclysm is guaranteed.

The Disruptors know. And they are intent on subverting the multiverse for their own ends, to  destabilise countries, instigate wars, bring about destruction.

The Valhalla Project was established to stop the Disruptors; to uncover their plans, identify their agents, and eliminate them. Their best agent is Luther Arkwright, unique in the multiverse, a powerful psychic, but himself unstable. Arkwright does not work alone: there are others. 

You.

Based on Bryan Talbot’s acclaimed graphic novels, Luther Arkwright: Roleplaying Across the Parallels is a RuneQuest supplement introducing the Arkwright multiverse and all the rules needed for adventuring in countless parallel dimensions. This book contains game rules for contemporary character creation, psionics, technology, firearms, vehicles and more! Hardcover. 184 pages. This is a preorder. Copies will be shipping from our warehouse in early July 2015. Note: this is a supplement for RuneQuest and requires either the RuneQuest 6 rules, or RuneQuest Essentials for full play.

184 pages. $24.99 (print & PDF). $10.99 PDF only

RuneQuest Essentials

This special version of RuneQuest 6th Edition is designed to introduce players and Games Masters to the essentials of the game. In this book you will find the core of the RuneQuest engine, in a stripped-down format, but still complete enough to create characters and begin adventuring with one of roleplaying’s most enduring and respected systems.

The intention is that this book will give you a taste of the mechanics and encourage you to move onto the full edition of the rules. The full rulebook contains much, much more: more game options, more magic, more monsters more cults.

RuneQuest Essentials is a free download, but if you would like to show your appreciation, please donate whatever amount you feel appropriate by clicking on the Donate button directly below the RuneQuest Essentials image.
