An Interview with Pete Nash
In this Swedish Podcast, Pete Nash talks at length about all things RuneQuest - its history, influence, development
RuneQuest Preview 2
This second preview of the game focuses on the magic chapters. The preview includes a couple of pages from each magic section (with the exception of Animism, covered in Preview 1).
And thank you all for the wonderful feedback and comments on the look and feel of RuneQuest. Glad to know we're on the right track!
RuneQuest Preview 1
The first preview of RuneQuest is now available for viewing.
These preview pages are pre-publication images so there are still page references to be finalised, but here you can see the style and scope of content RuneQuest will be offering.
Will RuneQuest Be OGL?
One question we're anticipating is whether or not third party publishers can use RuneQuest for their own games and supplements and, if so, how?
The short answer is Yes, we will be sanctioning third party support for RuneQuest. It will not be OGL (Open Game License) but will use an exclusive RQ Gateway agreement that we're currently developing. The RQ Gateway will allow companies to produce settings and supplements based on RuneQuest 6th edition rules, display their compatibility and refer back to the core rules.
Exactly how RQ Gateway will work is still being developed but full details of the license will be published here once finalised along with a summary of what the agreement entails and how it can be used.
We are no longer recruiting playtesters. The response has been incredible and we've very quickly attracted a very good, strong, diverse group that will meet our needs.
If the position changes, we'll keep you notified via this page, the News page and the Forums. So, apologies if you were considering applying and hadn't done so, but keep an eye out for future opportunities.
