Invitations to Adventure
Seven ready-to-play adventures for RuneQuest!
Set in the mythic fantasy world of Glorantha, The Pegasus Plateau & Other Stories features seven complete ready-to-play adventures, taking you from ghoul-haunted catacombs, into mystic ruins, across the arid deserts of Prax, and up to the rocky pinnacle of the Pegasus Plateau!
Chaosium Unveiled: Inside The Pegasus Plateau & Other Stories
The seven adventures are:
- The Pegasus Plateau is a desperate race to the top of a mountain to claim a priceless reward.
- The Grey Crane concerns an ancient legacy, stolen from its rightful owner.
- The Rattling Wind is a deadly tale of ghosts and unearthly revenge.
- Crimson Petals describes a curse afflicting a beleaguered town.
- Gloomwillow's Hollow details the Woods of the Dead, a realm ruled by ghouls and worse.
- The Ruin on the Stream delves into an ancient ruin in search of long-lost secrets of dragon magic.
- The Pairing Stones presents a tale of a wedding interrupted, lovers separated and reunited.
Additionally, The Locaem is a new tribe for use by gamemasters and players, and the lonely village of Renekot's Hope, perched between the Lunar Empire and its enemies in Sartar, provide refuge... or a springboard for adventure!
Suitable for new and veteran gamemasters and players, each adventure spotlights a unique aspect or area of Dragon Pass. They can be used as introductions to Glorantha or as part of existing campaigns.

I love Glorantha and I was pretty disappointed with the material here. It’s great that Chaosium wants to give new authors opportunities to get published, but it really feels like the authors here weren’t very familiar with Glorantha—a lot of these scenarios feel very generic and lack the spark of Glorantha. The scenarios set in specific clans just treat them as generic fantasy ‘villages’, and the scenario at Pairing Stones barely describes the place—since when do Praxian tribes have “princesses”? Even the Pegasus Plateau scenario feels really bland, with no mythic resonance and a Winds ceremony that doesn’t connect to anything established about Storm tribe ideas about the winds. But the gazetteer for the Locaem tribe is nice. Overall, the weakest thing Chaosium has published in a very long time.
My group and I just finished the first adventure "The Pegasus Plateau" and we loved it! There are many good adventures in this book and it has also created seeds for many more adventures or things I could add to the current adventures in the book as my group plays through them. The quality and level of detail in this product is on par with the standard Chaosium sets - which is excellent - the book feels great in your hands and the pages are something special as well. The art is fantastic. The adventures will provide many hours of intriguing gameplay and I was extremely satisfied with this product.
This is a wonderful collection of pre-packaged adventures that can be used by anyone running a Sartarite or Heortland campaign. Grey Crane is probably my favorite and I really like what was done with Renekot's Hope. And while my campaign is in Colymar, it was good to see this happening outside that structure (yet not so far away that a Colymar campaign can't easily take advantage of it). I would have liked to have seen a lot more information on the Locaem, including more on each clan and a map of clan territories. It seems a missed opportunity to provide a needed alternative to new GMs that don't want to be in same old, same old Colymar.
Top quality collection of adventures and additional background material. Cannot rate this highly enough. Highly recommended!
There are several differing adventures. There is also general background information on the Dragon Pass area.
Good adventures, nice background detail and beautiful presentation.
