What The Critics Say
"I have a bone to pick with the brand-new RuneQuest Weapons & Equipment guide. Its title... Weapons & Equipment sounds like a laundry list for player character adventurers. This book is so much more. This book is RuneQuest: The Material Culture of Dragon Pass... For all of her wonders, her strangeness, Glorantha is an incredibly defined and real setting. Weapons & Equipment underscores this, and I suspect will change the way you think and feel about the game."
— Andrew Logan Montgomery, Excavating Glorantha: A look at the RuneQuest Weapons & Equipment Guide.
"This book is superb and offers so much more than you might expect in an equipment guide. Highly recommended."
— M.T. Black, Twitter Review.
"It's how you do a weapons and equipment guide right — highly recommended."
— RPG Imaginings, RuneQuest Weapons and Equipment Is Better Than You Are Imagining.
“Both extremely useful and extremely flavourful, which is a rare and welcome combination.”
— Refereeing & Reflection, Weapons and Equipment(RuneQuest).
"A must buy."
— EuroCultAV, Runequest – Weapons and Equipment (Chaosium).

The book contains what the descriptions tells, it's a really userful book with a lot of information, more one could hope for, even. Sadly this is not an optimized PDF, even on a high-end PC, flipping through this book takes a second per page. I asked for an optimized version, they don't have any. The Red Book of Magic PDF has the same issue. Wonder why it's working with all other PDFs I bought. Would be a 5-star PDF if it was actually usable for me. I have to stick to the printed edition then. :-(
Like Tatler or Cosmo for the flush Conan the Barbarian in your life. Apart from how to spend your loot, there's plenty of insightful articles and essays that really add colour and depth to the game-world of Glorantha. Oh, and again: brilliant artwork & layout/design. Well done Chaosium! Keep 'em coming!
Packed full of detail on weapons, armour and equipment but also covers markets, materials, beasts, labour, travel, dwellings, training and exotic items. A wealth of Glorantha information and Runequest rules, and as always is beautifully presented and illustrated.
Don't get fooled with the title, this book is very much more than just a list of weapons and equipment, the authors managed to make this book this and a lot more. The First chapter is a must read if you want to introduce bartering and roleplaying opportunities to your markets and "shopping". And if like me you have an Issaries PC the player will thank you for having this. It follows with a chapter on "A Bronze Age world" full of information on specificities about Glorantha and it's "Bronze Age" vibes. And then you have all those informations on goods, equipment (weapon and armors and much much more), mounts, beasts and even Dwellings. Top this with a chapter on Trainings and a very well written chapter on Exotic items and Enchantments. I'm always amazed at how Chaosium can fit this much of information and cool art in 130 pages.
