Rare copy of Greg Stafford's WHITE BEAR RED MOON to be auctioned to support future RQ Cons in Australia
RuneQuest Con Down Under is returning to Australia on November 11! Greg Stafford was guest of honour at both previous RQ Con Down Unders, held in Melbourne, Australia, in 1996 and 1998. With the endorsement from Chaosium, the RPG Review Cooperative, organisers of RQ Con DU III are establishing a trust fund in Greg Stafford's memory to support future RQ Cons in Australia (and ensure there's not another 20 year gap between this one and the next).
The generous donation of a rare first edition of Greg's WHITE BEAR RED MOON will help establish the initial funds for the trust.
Of all the auction items available for RuneQuest Glorantha Down Under III this is the only item for which external bids will be accepted. More information about the auction and bidding process here.
