Explore an exotic land where each island is a god unto itself. Play new occupations such as Pirate, Sailor and Mystic. Learn a unique martial arts system. Worship all new gods with a completely different mythology than what you've known till now. No Orlanth, no Thed, no Issaries, no Trickster!

Glorantha as you've never seen it before!

Charles Dunwoody of ENWorld:  A GM looking for a deeply rooted campaign for Runequest could find months of gaming with this supplement alone, and two more are planned. A great supplement to kick off a new campaign with.

For Jonstown Compendium products to offer POD, they first have to reach Electrum level sales. Pirates is currently at Silver. Once it hits Electrum it will be made available for POD.

Will people who already bought the PDF be given at-cost or discounted coupons for the POD?

I'm pretty sure DTRPG does that automatically. I will look into it and make sure that happens.

Are the previews not up-to-date, or is this product really not using the beautiful Jonstown Compendium Templates (

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.
