From the publisher website:
The classic roleplaying game is back - in a new, streamlined, 21st Century edition!
With rules and supplements written by top-flight RuneQuest designer Lawerence Whitaker, RuneQuest II retains all the flavour of previous editions and yet plays faster, more realistically and still provides endless opportunities for expansion. The main rulebook has been designed to provide everything a player needs, while the growing range of supplements ehance the game in all directions.
Every core RuneQuest II book comes with an atractive leather cover, and a gold-foil stamped rune!
Suitable for multiple settings and campaigns, RuneQuest II supports the original Glorantha setting, based in the Second Age, giving fans a new perspective on an old favourite. More 'traditional' fantasy settings are also supported, with guilds and quests forming major incentives for characters wherever they adventure.
Further settings for RuneQuest II include Deus Vult, Elric of Melnibone, and Hawkmoon.
