Jorthan's Rescue Redux

Jorthan's Rescue Redux


When a Lunar noblewoman stumbles into your village and asks for your help, saying that her husband has been kidnapped by trolls, what do you do? This is the set-up for Jorthan’s Rescue Redux, an update of Jorthan’s Rescue, the classic RuneQuest mini-scenario by Stephen R. Marsh and John Sapienza Jr. which originally appeared in White Dwarf #19 in 1980. This new version has been rewritten for use with Chaosium. Inc.’s RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha and relocated to Sartar, whilst retaining the original’s flexibility to be set anywhere where troll brigands might be found. It is a simple, straightforward adventure suitable to be played by characters with a few adventures under their belts. 

It includes all new artwork and maps and nineteen NPCs, including two who could become Player Characters. Published in co-operation with Beer with Teeth.

I loved finding this update of the Rq II Senario from back in the day, just before I was about to have a go at converting it for my own use. The orignial from White Dwarf ( when it was worth buying) with its interesting layout stats for everything made [...]

Very good place to start with the new Runequest Roleplaying in Glorantha. It actually comes from an adventure written in the 1980's and rewritten here. Glorantha can be a complex world, this is a nice simple start [...]

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
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.
