The nostalgia for old games

Interesting that someone brought back Runequest:

Thanks to your overwhelming support during our Kickstarter, we are proud to announce that RuneQuest 2 (and 1) are Back in Print and back with Chaosium!
Just in time to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Glorantha.

This is the game that started it all. It defined the d100 role-playing experience, with skills instead of levels and having a game tied into a deep mythic background: Greg Stafford’s world of Glorantha. Steve Perrin and Ray Turney worked with Greg to product a rule system like none before it, where a single swing of a sword could decide a combat.

Note: Until the backers start getting their printed copies we will only be selling the PDFs, but after that, you will be able to get physical copies of Chaosium’s Classic Roleplaying game RuneQuest as well as the digital copies we are selling now. And thanks to the Kickstarter, you’ll see a huge variety of other books the Kickstarter unlocked.

We’ll be adding the other books as they become available. Check back to see what new Gloranthan goodness appears!
