What The Critics Say
"This isn't just about the spells; it is about the adventures that they help create.... Glorantha is probably the best researched and most cohesive settings in the world. Magic is integral to the setting, not a flimsy paste up."
— Antonios S., RPGNet, Review of The Red Book of Magic.
"Much more than just a big list of spells."
— Reviews from R'lyeh, A Spellbinding Corollary.

Un excellent ouvrage, magnifiquement illustré, que je recommande chaudement! La présentation est très pratique et permet aux Maîtres de Jeu, comme aux joueurs, de retrouver rapidement et facilement tous les sorts. De plus, sont présents les sorts de cultes non encore publiés dans la nouvelle version de Runequest, mais qui étaient présents dans d'anciens suppléments (Trollpack, etc). Très pratique pour le Maître de jeu qui voudrait créer des cultes d'esprits originaux, par exemple. Un must have!
Sprawling book of Rune spells. A few more spirit spells, none from other magic styles. Art is breathtaking (though it may not be to your liking if you have certain hangups about the human form). The RQG line somehow continues its unbelievably beautiful product values, and I can't wait to use this in game.
Another stunning product! Gorgeous artwork! Plus all the spells in one plays is brilliant, as well as firing a load of ideas for gamemasters! The supplementary info is good too, I would have like a few more spirit spells if I had any criticism.
This new supplement is a must have for any serious RuneQuest enthusiast! As has been the case with all of the material released so far for this iteration of RuneQuest, the book is beautifully laid out with outstanding artwork. It also pulls all the spells together in one place which will make bouncing between the rulebook and spell lists a lot easier. A great companion to the rulebook and it will be invaluable with the upcoming, much anticipated This new supplement is a must have for any serious RuneQuest enthusiast!

A great companion to the rulebook and it will be invaluable with the upcoming, much anticipated Gods of Glorantha supplement. All in all, a must have!
Having every spell in one place while you play is incredibly useful, and makes the Red Book of Magic the second most useful supplement--right after the RQG rulebook! Many of the spells aren't tied to known cults yet, but gives us a sort of preview of the upcoming Gods of Glorantha books, which will be "must-haves" as well! The only thing I would have liked to see would be a list of the cults listed for each spell--instead of having to go back and forth between cult descriptions and this book--but I digress. This book will save players and GMs alike a boatload of time during play!
Essential for any player or gm of RQG. Beautiful, evocative artwork combines with the indepth listing of spells for RQG. The perfect companion to the upcoming Gods of Glorantha and a necessity for anyone serious about running RQG,
Amazing book as usual! The art is amazing and the content of it is very easy to understand and so helpful to use it.
Great art, very useful to have all the spells in one place, and a lot of deep in the magic in general. Very Happy
