Good Wishes to you all, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers!

I feel fortunate that I am able to post a blog this evening, as I have been beset by the most unpleasant of atmospheric phenomena today.  First there was tropical heat all day long, which, for those of us who dwell in the Vale of the Wolverine, is like being roasted alive in dragon’s fire.  Then came dark clouds at sunset, and the storm began, with howling winds, sheets of water, and lightning blasts all around.  And I think there might have been hail too – or else a small flock of wayward sparrows were tumultuously blown against my window pane!  And then the darkness fell.  Not from the sun going down – no it was still dusk – but from the power, and thence, the lights going out!

Thankfully, I had a fully charged battery in the laptop and kept right on with my work!

But all is well now, and I can report that I have posted a Review on EN World News tonight.  I’ve had the opportunity to take a look at an adventure supplement called The Book of Quests.  This anthology of seven adventures was written for the most recent edition of the RuneQuest RPG (6th Ed) by The Design Mechanism, and comprises an entire campaign arc if desired.

For all the details about the content in this new RuneQuest supplement, please click on the link below to be catapulted over to EN World News, and read the complete review:

An Assembly of Authors Collaborate to Pen The Book of Quests (for RuneQuest RPG) – A Review

The Design Mechanism is the most recent holder of the RuneQuest trademark license, and there is the most long and confusing line of successors prior to this most recent edition of the game.  In prepping for the review, as I had not played RuneQuest since the mid-1980s, I was rather surprised by the bizarre history of this game, given that it has been held by so many companies over the years – including Mongoose Press and Wizards of the Coast.  If you’re interested, check out this site I stumbled upon which details the RQ history of editions – it was really a fascinating little read!

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
