Stone and Bone


Three generations of the Straw Weaver Clan, a grandmother, a mother, and a toddlerThis full scenario for Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha is designed to slot in to any campaign where shamans can be found.  It is written with Praxians in mind but can easily be converted to be set elsewhere.  A collection of plot hooks is included, along with maps, walkthrough, and suggested aftermath.  The setting includes a write-up of the Straw Weaver Clan of the Bison tribe.

The adventure will appeal to most characters with an outward bent.  Combat is likely, but can be avoided with sufficient cleverness and skill, but it is assumed that danger will be faced.  Scaling tips are included to make this a challenge to heavily armed and armoured parties.

Stone and Bone can be followed by The Gifts of Prax and then The Lifethief, but all BWT adventures can stand alone.

NOTE: This scenario has horror elements relating to Scorpion Man biology. Gamemasters can easily adjust the presentation or presence of this material for their own and their group’s comfort levels.

Hi! I've just bought both "Stone and Bone" and "The Gifts of Prax"! I saw that the latter is most likely to be played out for 2 sessions. But what about the former?

This will be my first time running RuneQuest Glorantha, and I'm looking forward to introduce it to my players!

Hi Isaac,

Stone and Bone generally takes one session, although you can pad it out with extra chase bits, or make it shorter by reducing the travel time to get to the area. I'd say about 4 hours at its full length, 3 if you simply describe the journey but do not add the difficulties at the start.

Good luck playing! We hope you enjoy it.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
