Subtitle: History, Stories and Play-Aids
Sourcebook for the earliest editions of Runequest from Chaosium. Intended to fill the gap after the ending of the Wyrm's Footnote's magazine, it reprints some of that early material plus new sources.
The companion is a sourcebook of articles, stories, and pictures useful to or entertaining to Runequest referees and players alike; its wide variety of subjects and forms will stimulate new adventures in any campaign or full up quiet evenings at home.
The Companion fills a void left by the demise of Wyrms Footnotes, a magazine dedicated at the last solely to RQ articles; it was then the best source for RQ rules variants and steadily published new Gloranthan arcana/
Frustratingly to many, the earliest issues of the Footnotes were never reprinted, so that only savvy collectors has access to important material for Runequest and White Bear & Red Moon (since retitled Dragon Pass). The most RQ-pertinent of those essays and illustrations appear here.
But the majority of the Companion is new material- a lot of research and writing has occurred since the first issues of WF in 1976!
