What’s Inside?

A System-less Sourcebook

The signature setting for RuneQuest, The Glorantha Sourcebook is without rules or game system. This allows you to apply the setting of Glorantha to any game of your choice, and delve into one of the most richly imagined fantasy worlds ever created.

What The Critics Say

  • "Drawing on long out-of-print sources, and including new materials, this belongs in the collection of new Glorantha fans and old timers alike… vividly told, beautifully illustrated, and inspirational."

    — Andrew Logan Montgomery, Exploring the Otherworlds of Fiction, Magic, and Gaming.

  • "Awesome…rich in detail. …Quite surprisingly, Chaosium has managed to produce an introductory book that is also interesting for veteran fans of Glorantha."

    — El Runeblogger, El Runeblogger" target="_blank">Review of the Glorantha Sourcebook.

  • "The Glorantha Sourcebook is an excellent introduction and guide, and probably the exact amount you’ll ever need to run your own Glorantha campaign. Perhaps best of all is the strong visual aesthetic, which mashes up the styles of many bronze age cultures. Glorantha has kind of lacked this in the past and having it now really breathes life into the world and fires the imagination."

    — Vintage RPG, A Systemless look at Glorantha.

  • "Be it because you want to run a campaign, to expropriate concepts wholesale, to get inspiration, to pleasantly read as a fragmented novel before bed time, or to adorn your coffee table thanks to its stunning imagery, you want The Glorantha Sourcebook. Surprise; it also supports RuneQuest Glorantha which just came out! Not many roleplaying books can be purchased for such a broad range of uses."

    — Antonio S., RPGNet Review.

  • "The best most affordable introduction to the rich fantasy world of Glorantha so far."

    — Runeblogger, RPGNet Review.
