Citizens of the Lunar Empire cover

Chris Gidlow's Citizens of the Lunar Empire is the latest Jonstown Compendium release to feature evocative Gloranthan cover art by Mark Smylie of Artesia fame. A 172 page sourcebook for RuneQuest urban adventures, this engaging and entertaining work by the creator of Credo focuses on the day-to-day lives of the working-class heroes of the Lunar capital, Glamour. (The city is also described in more detail in the Jonstown Compendium's A Rough Guide to Glamour).

Citizens of the Lunar Empire
Chris Gidlow ($19.95, 172 page PDF + Map Pack)

“Welcome to your new apartment, Citizens! New to Glamour? Well, I’m sure you’ll fit right in. Rent is payable in advance...”

A detailed home base for your adventurers: The Insula, a typical multi-storey residential city-block. A self-contained microcosm of Lunar urban society, it is home to many families and businesses, ranging from scribes and traders on the lower floors to the unemployed, squatters, temple dancers and students at the higher levels.
