It is a fantasy world unlike any other—a mythic world of mortals and gods, myths and cults, spirits and elementals, monsters and heroes.
Magic permeates all of existence, and the bonds between tribe, clan, and family are as important as are the relationship between mortals and the gods they worship. Beyond the gods and spirits are the Runes that make and define reality—those who master the Runes can shape the world.
This is Glorantha, the world of RuneQuest, and the most acclaimed fantasy RPG setting of all time.
The gods now call upon mortal adventurers to become Heroes and fight for the world's survival.
