Although all characters have access to magic, for practical gameplay purposes a character's magical strength is proportional to his or her connection to the divine or natural skill at sorcery. The exact divisions of magic vary from edition to edition, but most contain divisions such as Common Magic, Sorcery, Divine Magic, Spirit Magic, and Enchantments.
The RuneQuest rule book contained a large selection of fantasy monsters and their physical stats.
As well as traditional fantasy staples Dwarves, Trolls, Undead, Lycanthropes, etc. Some of its traditional fantasy creatures differed notably from the versions from other games or fantasy or traditional sources , for example, Elves are humanoid plant life.
Unlike other fantasy RPGs of the time, RuneQuest encouraged the use of monsters as player characters. With the exception of the third and sixth editions, which still offered it as an option, the default setting for RuneQuest has been the world of Glorantha. The well-developed background of the game offered a breadth of material for players and gamemasters to draw from. At a time when many RPG settings were cobbled together, RuneQuest offered players a vibrant living world, giving them a much more developed fictional world with established geography, history, and religion.
The original rules contained a map of an area called Dragon Pass, a region offered as the default setting for adventures. It is an extended upland, with not one but several passes through the surrounding mountains, each leading to different regions. This, together with the regional history, has led to a "melting pot" area, with unusually-high variety and concentrations of non-Human species, particularly for a largely-rural setting. The original RuneQuest game was set during a period of invasion, offering further opportunities for game scenarios.
One of the areas adjacent to Dragon Pass, touched upon in the original rulebook, was the Plains sometimes called the Wastes of Prax. It is an arid, even blasted region, hostile to all but the native peoples whose founding god, Waha, created the Survival Covenant by which they live. The tribes are Beast-Riders, each riding a different species but none riding horses, which are taboo ; the Great Tribes most numerous are: The Praxian tribes are inspired by ancient Mongol, Bedouin, Native American, and other tribal cultures.
A key element of RuneQuest flavor is a character's affiliation with a cult the default RuneQuest name for a religious group. Characters begin as lay members and progress through a series of membership levels, such as initiate or Rune Lord.
This system offers narrative and mechanical benefits to players who chose to have their characters join a cult. The basic rules described a handful of original and mythological gods. These were greatly expanded upon in the supplements Cults of Prax and Cults of Terror. A gem of a game. You won't be disappointed. Its only drawback is that it does not cover enough ground for a full-scale role-playing campaign, and is, perhaps, a bit simpler than experienced frp'ers would desire. However, it might be of use to a newcomer.
RuneQuest was ranked 5th in the reader poll of Arcane magazine to determine the 50 most popular roleplaying games of all time. Jennell Jaquays comments: But few would ever achieve the elegant but approachable rules complexity of the original RuneQuest or instill a fervent loyalty in fans that would span decades.
Chaosium reused the rules system developed in RuneQuest to form the basis of several other games. BRP is a generic role-playing game system , derived from the two first RuneQuest editions. It was used for many Chaosium role-playing games that followed RuneQuest , including:.
Minor modifications of the BRP rules were introduced in every one of those games, to suit the flavor of each game's universe. Pendragon used a scale and 1d20 roll instead of a percentile scale and 1d The Story-Telling Game , which used coin tosses instead of dice rolls, was the only Chaosium published role-playing game that didn't use any variant of the BRP system.
That same year, Chaosium began preparing a new edition of Basic Roleplaying , which was released in as a single, comprehensive page book, incorporating material from many of their previous BRP system games. Legend was released in late under the Open Gaming License.
