[Updated 2 July 2020] Nick Brooke's index to all the scenarios and sourcebooks available from Chaosium's Jonstown Compendium community content web store on DriveThruRPG. Analyses content (pages split between scenario, stats, maps, etc.), characters, settings and complexity of each scenario. Includes RuneQuest Scenarios, HeroQuest Scenarios, Gloranthan Sourcebooks, Monsters of the Month, Virtual Tabletop Tokens, Everything Else, and a Where in the World? map showing every scenario's location. The index has grown from 5 to 20 pages since the first version went on sale, as both the range of products covered and the number of titles on sale have grown, and is regularly updated.

If you bought it earlier, get the latest version of the Index from your Library (top right menu).

Thank you for letting me know. That's the current version (only uploaded this morning), which may explain your difficulty: have you tried looking for it in "My Library" on DriveThruRPG?

This platform seems to be a bit shaky when titles are updated. I have reached out to DriveThru support in case anything has gone wrong, as you're the third customer reporting issues.

Hmm. Seems the community content contact is out of the office for a week. You may have more luck reporting the issue as a customer...

Thanks for letting me know. In future I'll keep two versions uploaded at all times - the current and previous files - which might cause fewer problems.

I just bought this and the pdf won't download. It says "the requested source item could not be found". It doesn't do this for any of the other pdfs I own so idk if it's a problem from your end or mine. The way it's written honestly gives me the impression it's an issue from your end. Please reply as soon as you can.

Quick as I can - the PDF was updated earlier this morning. I'll have a look behind the scenes and see if everything's in the right place. Thank you for letting me know.

Can you download it if you go to My Library (top right menu bar)?

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I've just uploaded yet another revised version (v2.05) - everything seems to be in the right place on DriveThru, so I'm not sure what's causing this problem. If it doesn't sort itself out soon, there's a red "Contact Us" button you can use to reach Customer Services at the bottom of every web page.

Great index to Johnstown scenarios. A carefully-curated and regularly updated information source.

I'm not sure if I should officially review this - it's a live document so far, and it does what it says on the tin. It breaks down the various scenarios into where they are based and their complexity, as well as the characters they are most likely to be suitable for. It's useful for an easy, quick overview of which scenarios will suit your characters best. It's hard to give a star rating to something that is in constant development, so this is to say that I've found it useful.

Thanks, Diana - I'm glad you've found it useful. I wasn't expecting any star ratings for what's basically a catalogue.

That said, since someone has just given it two stars and no review, please feel free to redress the balance.

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.
