From RuneQuest to Mythras

July 10, 2016
RuneQuest 6 is now retired, and while we have a few copies left in stock, it will be officially Out of Print once these are exhausted.

It will be replaced in August by Mythras - same system, new name - and you can download a taster of the rules with our free Mythras Imperative version (see below this post).

All our supplements remain available, and aside from the name change, it's business as usual for us. But thank you to everyone who made RuneQuest's 6th edition such a well-respected title. It's been an honour to be associated with such an iconic game.

Forum Issues

October 14, 2015

It is the year 495.

Saxons control Britain's east. Aelle, Guercha and Cerdic vie for supremacy in the kingdoms of Ceint, Anglia and Mierce. To the west and north the fractious Britons struggle to unite, their previous attempts betrayed by Vortigern and Uther's personal follies. Now, a new warlord emerges, guided by a druid: Uther's bastard, Arthur, bearer of Caledfwlch, the sword forged by Gorfannon.

This is the Dark Ages. Blood soaked, treacherous, fraught. ...
