Chaosium Announces RuneQuest: "The Dragon’s Eye" is in development

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 2nd Aug 2020

Chaosium is pleased to announce that The Dragon’s Eye, a new sourcebook for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, is in development.

Originally conceived as “Your Glorantha May Vary”, this collection of locations demonstrates the versatility of the setting, putting that phrase to work by showing new and veteran gamemasters alike how to customize and make the world of Glorantha their own.

The Dragon’s Eye gives gamemasters more possibilities than they can possibly use. For each location, the book details multiple ways to interpret it and use it in a campaign. Adventure hooks and engaging nonplayer characters get the adventurers involved in the action. From homely villages to the mind-bending limits of mortal reality, the adventurers encounter everything that Glorantha has to offer, expanding upon locations such as the Dragon’s Eye, the Wasp Nest, Wilmskirk, Old Wind Temple, and many more.

The Dragon's Eye is being written by renowned game designer Jonathan Tweet. For decades, Jonathan’s roleplaying designs have shown players and gamemasters how to get more personality, drama, and action into their games. His design work includes Ars Magica, Everway, Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Ed, and 13th Age

For Glorantha, Jonathan co-wrote the RuneQuest 3rd Edition supplement Strangers in Prax with Mike Dawson and Chaosium's Michael O'Brien in 1994. More recently, he partnered with D&D 4th Edition's Rob Heinsoo for 13th Age Glorantha, their "400+ page love letter to Greg Stafford’s World of Glorantha".

The Dragon's Eye sourcebook is being produced by the award-winning RuneQuest creative team of Jeff Richard (The Guide to Glorantha, King of Sartar, HeroQuest, etc.) and Jason Durall (Basic Roleplaying, RuneQuest, The Laundry, World War Cthulhu, Conan, etc.).

"Jonathan Tweet has been a Glorantha fan since the ‘80s, and this new book shows how much he still loves the setting", said Jeff Richard.

No publication date has been announced.
