Posted by Michael O'Brien on 18th Mar 2022

About the Jonstown Compendium, Scott, aka Orcus Dorcus, co-host of Titterpigs - the TTRPG Podcast says, "I don't think I am amiss in saying that some of the most creative, fun, and innovative work being put out right now is contained within the annals of the Jonstown Compendium. There is just something about Glorantha that keeps inspiring throughout the years."

You can see that in these newest works by independent Gloranthan creators at the Jonstown Compendium:
