Summary
This truly is the ultimate edition of Runequest. I understand Greg Stafford considered King Arthur Pendragon as his crowning achievement but Runequest/Glorantha can't be very far behind. There's tons to love about the Bronze Age setting and the bit of crunchiness to the system really does call out to a bit more mature gamers. Sure, I'd have liked a more Glorantha background and a bestiary but this is a fantastic tome nonetheless and one which is a must have for any gamer looking to check out a more realistic fantasy rule system and setting.
