This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

One of the greatest old school games, I pledged to the physical version of this as soon as it hit. I plan on running this (along with the Borderlands campaign) as soon as it hits. Everything that OSR sandbox lovers claim is great in that genre of gaming is incarnated here. Who here has pledged, and who here is preparing to run?

I skipped it because RQ6 snugly fits in the Runequest-shaped in hole in my golf bag of RPG systems. But a classic getting reprinted always makes me happy.

What's the Borderlands campaign like?

I pledged because the Chaosium RQ2 boxed set was the 2nd RPG I ever bought (the 1st was Holmes blue box), and because I can run Gloranthan Classics without modification. So, nostalgia+practical value=win. I may have to house rule in stuff like Sorcery, mysticism and heroquesting, but that will be a snap.

I pledged. Not sure I'll ever run it as I have plenty of other d100 games on my shelf.

I pledged, but will probably be unable to run it for quite a long while.

However, it's for the best of reasons. My GM is the Creative Director of Chaosium and he's got us playing the new in-development edition of RuneQuest.
