Revised Player Character Pregens for the RuneQuest Glorantha Quickstart

You can find the RuneQuest QuickStart Adventure here.

I’ve changed up the list of Rune Magic spells to match the spells found in the RQG Core Book. I’ve also altered the spell notion terms from those found in the Quickstart to those found in the Core Book (so, now a spell might have the notation, [1, Touch, Instant, Nonstackable], as opposed to the notation from the quickstart).

Each booklet contains the information you would find on a character sheet. But also contains brief descriptions of the the character’s cult and god, descriptions of the Runes of Glorantha, and brief descriptions of the character’s Spirit and Rune spells.

I hope this is useful for people. I’m still plowing through the rules. But I’ve found that making tools like this lets me get a grasp on new rules. And I believe it will help my players in a couple of weeks have a quick reference for both rules and some of the texture of Glorantha as they sink into the setting and the game for the first time.

  1. 18 page character sheets?? I can imagine this being tremendous if the whole table has deeply bought into the setting, but otherwise this looks massively off putting.

    • Great!

      Anyway, as stated the rules a nicely laid out on separate pages or divided across separate sections. One can cram a lot of the information onto two 8.5×11 sheets, but it is crammed. And thus hard for new players to find.

      The booklets also have each spell the the PC has (which otherwise would have been on separate pages, with each player scanning the sheets looking for his or her spells). Also, each booklet has a description of each of the PC’s Runes — which is really helpful for Augments with Runes.

      I ran the Quickstart for five players, two of whom had played in Glorantha before, three of which had not. And everyone had a great time.

      But I’m sure some people would find them off-putting.
