What The Critics Say

  • “A beautiful introduction to the pantheons and mythological figures of Glorantha. Superbly comprehensive, it sets up and serves as a companion to the Cults of RuneQuest series and if the rest of the titles are going to look as good and delve deeper into their subjects, then the RuneQuest fan is going to very pleased with each new volume.”

    — Reviews from R’lyeh, Gods & Sods.

  • "The single most comprehensive survey of Glorantha's rich mythology that we have ever seen."

    — Andrew Logan Montgomery, THE CULTS OF RUNEQUEST: Part One, Some Thoughts on Chaosium Cults and the Prosopaedia.

  • “If I were to measure the depth of the community’s collective drool, I’d need a yardstick...”

    — Akhelas, REVIEW: The Prosopaedia for RuneQuest.

  • “A wonderfully illustrated encyclopedia of the entire mythical landscape of Glorantha, a proof that RuneQuest isn’t like any other fantasy game.”

    — The Godlearners, Review: Cults of RuneQuest, The Prosopaedia .

  • "In this day and age, RuneQuest‘s best bet is in emphasising the distinct and unique flavour of Glorantha and these books do a wonderful job with it... Though much of the material here was developed before his death by Greg Stafford, the job of finishing the project has fallen to Jeff Richard, who has made it a labour of love, along with a wealth of collaborators, including artists who’ve made some of the nicest and most flavourful-looking art I’ve ever seen in a RuneQuest book."

    — Refereeing & Reflection, a RuneQuest Encyclopedia.

  • “What Greg Stafford, Jeff Richard, and the team at Chaosium are doing with these books is nothing short of brilliant, and The Prosopaedia and Mythology, have to come highly recommended, not just the depth they add to Glorantha, but for sheer readability and entertainment value.”

    Cults of Runequest - The Prospaedia

    Posted by Frank Montellano on 13th Jul 2023

    This book is amazing and fantastic. Almost too big in its breadth as it tries to cover gods, goddesses, dragons, heroes, creatures, texts and sects, and even events from all the continents of Glorantha. Yes, all of them. Over 150 pages, a veritable Who's Who and What's What when it comes to Gloranthan beliefs. I especially enjoy that it is not just the gods, both known and obscure, evil and good (if such terms can be used when one speaks of Glorantha) but also other related material. So there’s an entry on the Second Council in there, and the Rokari sect, and (ooh!) more information on I Fought We Won! The artwork is top notch as well, Katrin Dirim really has made the book shine. My only critique is that I wish it had more artwork and symbolism. I am eagerly looking forward to the upcoming books from Chaosium, especially the Lightbringers!
