Jonstown Compendium Index [2021]


[1st update: 17-Jan-2021]

Nick Brooke's index to the RuneQuest & QuestWorlds scenarios and sourcebooks available from Chaosium's Jonstown Compendium community content web store on DriveThruRPG. The index includes full details for 2021 releases and all older Electrum & Gold best-sellers, plus summary listings for everything else in the store (for full details of all 2020 releases, see last year's Jonstown Compendium Scenarios & Sourcebooks index).

Detailed listings analyse content (pages split between scenario, stats, maps, etc.), characters, settings and complexity of each scenario. Includes best-seller and ratings charts, RuneQuest Scenarios, HeroQuest Titles, Gloranthan Sourcebooks, Monsters of the Month, Virtual Tabletop Tokens, Everything Else, two Where in the World? maps showing every scenario's location, and notes on when scenarios and campaigns are set (by year and season, inc. Chaosium RQG scenarios).

The index will be regularly updated throughout 2021. All updates in 2021 are free; the price of the index may increase quarterly as new content grows, so don't wait too long to get on board!

If you bought it earlier, get the latest version of the Index from your Library (top right menu) or from this product page while you're logged in. The index comes bundled with a spreadsheet listing all the JC titles inc. price, pagecount, medals, etc. for your convenience (updated through 12-Jan-2021).

Comprehensive and clearly laid out. Having bought the 2020 index, I knew I wanted this one as soon as it came out. Nick works hard to support and inform the community, and this index does a great job. I recommend it for anyone who wants to kno [...]

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.
