Mongoose Publishing has scheduled the release of its first four RuneQuest products for July. The RuneQuest core rulebook will be a 100-page full color hardcover priced at $19.95, which will give gamers the core rules they need to begin playing along with enough creatures to make games interesting.
In addition to the core rulebook Mongoose will be releasing Glorantha, a core setting book that is written by Robin Laws, and will be a 160-page full color hardcover. The setting is the classic RuneQuest setting revisited for use with the new system. Glorantha is expected to cost around $29.95.
Also in July Mongoose will release the RuneQuest Game Masters Screen, which will be created by Matthew Sprange and Robin Laws and is expected to be priced at $9.95.
Finally, Mongoose is also launching a line of RuneQuest miniatures. The first set is a Broo Raiders, a boxed set of 30mm metal miniatures, sculpted by Daniel Pacey. Broo are twisted hybrids of men and hoofed animals (deer, antelopes, and goats), who engage in foul practices such as rubbing dung into their fur, worshipping the gods of disease and cross breeding with other species.
Additional supplements planned for 2006 are primarily support titles including the RuneQuest Companion, RuneQuest Monsters, and Legendary Heroes.
