Journey to Jonstown #47: City on the Edge for Forever and places further afield

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 13th Nov 2022

The Jonstown Compendium at DriveThruRPG is the thriving online community for fans of Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha, setting of the RuneQuest TTRPG, to sell and share their own creations. Here are the latest works by independent creators - we'll start in the familiar setting of Pavis, and then move further afield!

New Pavis: City on the Edge of Forever
Ian A. Thomson & Friends, inc., Mark Galeotti, Darren Happens, Simon Phipp ($17.50, 203 page PDF)

Way back at the dawn of time (well, about 20 years ago) a rabid RuneQuest/Glorantha fan who was studying Professional Writing & Editing, teamed up with Tentacles Press to publish reworked and expanded versions of his epic Pavis & Big Rubble campaign.

This Director's Cut is an expanded re-release of the original Companion series, this time with no restraints on the unfolding Grand Plan reveals - eventually including the culmination and expression of that Plan as the Old City rises again! This is 'old school' stuff, all updated to the new rules system (RQG), but written in the classic style of gameplay (RQ2).

As with the original series, the Director's Cut is designed to accompany the official Pavis and Big Rubble sourcebooks.

Korolan Islands: Hero Wars in the East Isles - Volume 1
Hannu Rytövuori, David Cake, Nils Weinander ($9.99, 87 page PDF)

Welcome to the Jewelled Islands, the Ten Thousand Miracles of Vith! Will your characters help in working the Miracle Rescue and restore Vith's Cosmic Order when the Hero Wars mark the end of the latest World Cycle?

The Korolan Isles are an archipelago of five islands in the south central region of the East Isles. The Hero Wars are about to begin. New evils and new heroes are about to rise, and the Korolan Islands will have a surprising role in this saga. 

Fires of Mingai: Hero Wars in the East Isles - Vol 2
Hannu Rytövuori, David Cake, Nils Weinander ($14.99, 129 page PDF)

The second book in a series about the Hero Wars in the East Isles.

This book is a starting point for a campaign in the East Isles and includes four RQG adventures.
The adventures include The Nest, The Hill of Red Top, Korolan Games and Fires of Mingai.

Teshnos Companion
Paul Baker ($12.00, 84 page PDF)

A continuation in the exploration of Teshnos, expands on the information presented in The Houses of Teshnos.

Holiday Dorastor: Ragnaglar's Breath
Simon Phipp ($3.60, 30 page PDF)

Welcome to Holiday Dorastor: Ragnaglar’s Breath, another in our odysseys around the delightful place that is Dorastor. Here, you will find three new locations, and a set of scenarios and HeroQuests allowing you to banish Ragnaglar’s Breath from the Risklands.

The Marble Phalanx
Dario Corallo ($2.59, multiple file formats)

The Famous Marble Phalanx, for your conquest of New Pavis. For play with virtual tabletops.

The Silver Shields
Dario Corallo ($2.59, multiple file formats)

Eyes' Rise
JK Revell ($4.50, 30 page PDF)

Shorn of their former defences, the people of the Grantlands face an uncertain future on the very edge of civilisation. But for some, the risk is more immediate than for others.

This is a mini-sandbox setting describing a small, mostly forgotten, village on the River of Cradles. It includes nineteen NPCs that can provide interaction or story possibilities for RuneQuest or QuestWorlds games in Glorantha. Much of the material can also be converted to other systems or settings, so long as a half-abandoned frontier settlement might be in need of protection. It also provides a guide to the often-overlooked River Folk of the valley.

Glorantha settlement - 19 - Wintertop fort
Mikael Mansen ($4.25, 2 maps)

Wintertop Fort: one map for day and one map for night. 

Dragon Pass - Glorantha Area Maps
Mikael Mansen ($6.45, 2 maps)

Two high resolution maps of Dragon Pass (4256 x 3041). One with text and one without.
