Matthew Sprange says Mongoose Publishing will be doing a new edition of RuneQuest next year. Comedy ensues. Sprange is active in both discussions and has confirmed that the system will not be D20-esque nor the original game’s system, but rather a new creation that aims for the old feel. I have not yet found anything explaining how the future of Issaries and HeroQuest fits into all this, but I am reluctant to spend work time reading all 35 or so pages of forum chatter. Report back if you find anything.
UPDATE: okay, so I missed it. Greg Stafford confirms that Mongoose has licensed Glorantha, and that the system will be essentially the same as the original game’s system, just rewritten from scratch to skirt copyright. That could get interesting.
