The Queen's Star


A dream comes in the night.

The shade of Kallyr Starbrow—once Prince of Sartar—asks the adventurers to be her hands in the Middle World. One of the noble Star Captains has gone missing. He descended from the Sky to discover Kallyr's fate. Now, she needs the adventurers' help to repay his loyalty.

The Queen's Star is a site-based adventure which describes one portion of the infamous Cinder Pits in the lands of the Colymar Tribe, in Sartar. This sandbox-style adventure gives the gamemaster the tools needed to discover whether the adventurers will use weapons or words to free an imprisoned Star Captain. It is designed for use with beginning adventurers (such as the RuneQuest Starter Set pregens), and to provide from 1 to 3 sessions of play.

I very much enjoyed reading this. The author has provided enough plot hooks to ensure that this will fit into any exisitng campaign. The adventurers must talk, bluff and probably fight their way through a setting that may have them (depending on which [...]

The Queen's Star is a short and very imaginative scenario that focuses on a nugget of the more rarely presented Fire/Sky side of Gloranthan mythology. The background story is highly mythical/fantastic, almost as if the scenario was a heroquest, wi [...]

A fantastic open ended scenario that incorporates the classic Gloranthan feel with a well fleshed out location. Works very well with new characters, perhaps after they've completed the scenarios in the starter set. [...]

Having been sent a pre-publication copy, what really sticks out for me that it has that classic Runequest feel. It reminds me to some degree - as Nick Brooke says - of Snake Pipe Hollow and those dungeon-type adventures I spent playing back with RQ2 in [...]

This is a highly imaginative and original scenario for Glorantha, and it touches upon several pieces of Glorantha that have not previously been brought to light, and just for that it is an interesting read. Half of my enjoyment of this release is simpl [...]

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.
