Cups of Clearwine is a sourcebook for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, detailing the lives of ordinary people who can help you have extraordinary adventures.  Cups has details for a dozen households, each with plot hooks for the area and beyond.  Every household was created to add to the interest and playability of the area.

Cups expands the area halfway up the city, between the newest areas of the city, and the old, rich nobility.  Here there are food and wine shops, crafters, and old, retired warriors.  A vendref who left the grazelands lives next to a trollkin night watch guard.  The distant cousin of Samastina of Esrolia has a home in the area, making a living and spreading joy as a courtesan.

In addition to the highly detailed households, there are general plot hooks suitable for any level of party, and a fully realised, ready-to-play five-page adventure.  There is an appendix of goods for those who wish to buy from the crafters or the food and wine shops.

The download files are the full PDF and a no-background version designed for the Amazon Kindle and smaller or older computers.

Cups of Clearwine is a delightful volume. Well-presented with Kristi Jones's lively portraits, and dozens of smaller graphic touches, this RuneQuest supplement illuminates Clearwine Fort's "middle class" with crystal clarit [...]

Firstly, a declaration. I game with the authors, and indeed was responsible for introducing Runequest to at least two of them, but I was not involved in the production of this work (not even by allowing them to pinch NPCs from my game). This is [...]

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.
