Journey to Jonstown #29: the 'Sandheart' series of Sun County Adventures concludes with 'The God Skin & Mad Prax'
Posted by Michael O'Brien on 7th Nov 2021
The God Skin & Mad Prax is the fourth and final volume in Jon Webb's 'Sandheart' series of adventures set in Sun County, Prax. It features the scenarios 'The God Skin' by Sandheart creator Jon Webb, and 'Mad Prax: Beyond Sun Dome' by Chaosium's Michael O'Brien, author of the original RuneQuest 3rd Ed release Sun County (1992). Involving the player characters in a truly momentous event marking the beginning of the Hero Wars, 'Mad Prax' could, if you wish, serve as a fitting end to a Sandheart campaign.
"What began as a one-person operation (Jon) evolved into what I think is a best-practice example of community content creation, with Jon gathering the talents of Glorantha-loving layout experts, cartographers, artists and writers to produce what have become some of the most well-received and popular titles in the Jonstown Compendium... It’s immensely gratifying for me to see that, coming up to thirty years since Sun County was published, there is still much to be written about, discovered, argued over, and gamed in, in this small and distant, yet special, part of Glorantha." —MOB, Chaosium Inc.
