Journey to Jonstown #17 - Michael O'Brien's 'Fortunate Sun' now part of the remastered Sandheart Trilogy

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 22nd Nov 2020

"Since helping take over the reins at Chaosium five years ago, my writing has mostly had to be licensing, media releases and the like, rather than RPG stuff. So I am delighted my new RuneQuest scenario 'Fortunate Sun' is out now in the Jonstown Compendium, our community content platform for gaming in Glorantha at DriveThruRPG!

The adventure is based on a convention scenario I wrote with Brian Hebert way back in 1993. It was a great pleasure working with Jonathan Webb, Nick Brooke, Dario Corallo, and Ludovic Chabant revising and expanding this work for RQG, and seeing it updated with splendid new layout, art and maps.

You can find 'Fortunate Sun' in the new remastered edition of Sandheart Vol 2, the middle book in Jon's best-selling series of adventures in Sun County, Prax - that place in Glorantha (for all its faults) that is closest to my heart."—MOB, Chaosium Inc.

The Corn Dolls: A pestilence threatens the crop at Cliffheath. It festers at the very edge of Sun County and the Sandheart Militia are sent to investigate. Their orders are simple – purge the area of disease. But what caused it and where is the source? The clock is ticking. Can the militia solve the mystery before the situation spirals out of control?

"Sun folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooh, they’re Gold through and through,
And when the band plays 'Hail to the Count'
Ooh, they point the Harpoon at you, Lord"

Fortunate Sun: A chance encounter with a group of Sun Dome Templars leads to shared nightmares - portents of a catastrophe that needs to be avoided. Haunted by their dreams the militia must track into the blasted chaparral of the Wastes to avert disaster.
