Journey to Jonstown #21: March 2021 releases and GM's Day Sale

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 9th Mar 2021

Under the Jonstown Compendium community content license, RuneQuest fans can make their own work for use for Glorantha gaming available to the public at DriveThruRPG, using guidelines and templates provided by Chaosium. Here's the latest selection of exciting new releases by community content creators:

The Gifts of Prax
Diana Probst, Kristi Herbert ($10.00, 40 page PDF)

The Shaman Erhehta wants vengeance after an attack that left him weakened and unable to defend his people, the Straw Weaver Bisons. The adventurers are crucial to this, being sent to gather what he requires, and wrestle with the elements that make Prax what is it, for good or ill.

The Gifts of Prax is written to fit well after Stone and Bone and its attack on Erhehta, but no knowledge of that adventure is required, and the adventures can be played in either order.

The Company of the Dragon (Free Preview)
Andrew Montgomery (Free, 24 page PDF)

This free 24-page booklet contains an overview of the upcoming campaign book, as well as the full Episode, "The Forging," along with everything you need to play it. This episode is the bridge between Six Seasons in Sartarand The Company of the Dragon.

Each cult has sample NPCs that Games Masters can use in their campaigns.

Ruins of Bonn Kanach
Michael Paul O'Sullivan ($7.95, 70 page PDF)

Set back from the road to Blackwell and perched upon a jagged bluff sits the haunted ruins of Bonn Kanach. Abandoned and empty for many centuries this once great EWF city boasted fine palaces, an arena and a great temple. Even trolls fear this city that they once commanded and dare not pass within sight of its crumbling walls. But when a grazelander merchant offers you clean silver for any trinket or bauble pulled from the rubble your suspicions are swayed by the chance of easy money.

Ruins of Bonn Kanach is the first instalment in a trilogy of adventures set in Beast Valley. It can be used as a stand alone resource or part of the longer campaign.
