In the shadow of the Quivini, at the dawn of the Hero Wars, a young Seven Mothers convert began collecting stories of rebel warbands hiding in the wilds of occupied Sartar.

Among these accounts were repeated stories of one particular warband... clanless, tribeless, bound to a draconic spirit of immense power. Some called them traitors and insurrectionists. Others painted them as folk heroes and freedom fighters.

They were called the Company of the Dragon. And some say they helped the Prince of Sartar win her throne.

In this 270-page sequel to the Gold bestselling SIX SEASONS IN SARTAR you will find:

- "Sartar Before the Dragonrise," a land culturally and politically divided under foreign dominion.

- "The Company of the Dragon," a description of the Company, the rebel warbands loyal to Kallyr, and a new system to model large communities, keep them healthy and strong, and lead them into large scale battles.

-"Draconic Consciousness," the teachings of the Dragon Way and a Draconic perspective of the Hero Wars.

-"Characters," rules for creating new protagonists, creating and narrating "character arcs." and a shorthand system for NPCs and antagonists, with over 30 templates for quick NPC design.

-"Initiations," a discussion of this important aspect of Gloranthan religions, with example initiations for martial cults like Orlanth Adventurous, Vinga, Humakt, Babeester Gor, Storm Bull, and the Company of the Dragon.

-"Running the Game," an extensive chapter on building campaigns, with expanded battle and community management rules, new options, and a discussion of gaming in Glorantha.

-"Episodes," more than 160 pages of adventures and adventure seeds that allow you to assemble your own 5-year, 27-season saga, with historical events like "The Battle of Auroch Hills" and "The Dragonrise," as well as all-new stories like "The Dark Lord's Daughter" and "The Changeling."

Written for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, but with support for 13G and Questworlds play.

Usuable as a solo campaign or the sequel to SIX SEASONS IN SARTAR

Great book! I did notice some spelling errors (i.e. "one the day" instead of "won the day"). Also, it mentions an Ice Demons and Trollkind episode during the Great Winter in Red Hand Pt 2; I don't see those in the episodes lists. Am I blind?

Hi Andrew,
as premium POD prices seem to be scheduled to go up on July 1st:
Any chance to get the POD version out before that? It's been Electrum for two weeks at least, and the PDF seems to be stable as well.
I want it either way, but this may save a lot of your fans some money that we'd _much_ rather send to you. :)
Cheers for your fabulous work!

Hey Venka!

Unfortunately I do not have the software or the skill to prep a book for color print. It is a really difficult process that I get a professional to do for me. To be honest, getting it ready for print is harder than creating the book itself. It is being done now but I cannot say for sure when it will be ready. However, I will try to offer both the standard color (not affected by the price hike) and the premium color (affected by the hike) options. If I cannot do both, I will do just the standard color (I am NOT at all pleased about the price increase). So there will be a reasonably priced hardback available soon.

We would love to have it out before the sale ends, but I am doubtful. It sounds like the process is nearly done, but the cover is being adjusted. Then we submit to DriveThru and they make sure it conforms to all the arcane printing jumbo jumbo I have no comprehension of. But, I am determined to get both a premium and standard color out (the standard color is not affected by the price hike). I have never seen a standard color print, but I am told it looks nearly as good as the premium (on the same paper as well). So we will see.

That all being said, thanks for the message and I am thrilled you are enjoying them!

Hi Andrew,
Thank you, I do understand, and so will everybody else who ever had to submit anything important in printing (such as a Math thesis done in LaTeX).
Don't rush it, then - this will be worth the wait, and the premium print, even at increased prices, to have a copy worthy of the contents.
Cheers again! :D

Just a must. A complete campaign or hundreds of hooks to spice up any campaign you may have in the middle. As well as usable for one shot adventures.

My favorite JC author.

Will there be a POD option for this one?

Hey Eric;

Yes. But it is the rule for all Jonstown Compendium products that they are not eligible for POD until they reach Electrum status. Company is still at silver. In general, if people do not buy the PDF, the POD does not get approved. But Company is getting very close and has been approved.

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.
