>A few of you may remember that several years back (1997), Avalon Hill
>announced a new version of RuneQuest. In a deal with Chaosium, AH
>purchased the name RuneQuest, leaving Chaosium with Glorantha and the
>original RQ system.
>The RPG was at the printers when Hasbro bought Avalon Hill months
>later. The presses were shut down, and RuneQuest: Slayers faded away
>into obscurity just a week before its Gencon debut.
>As one of the designers, I managed to recover and reconstruct the
>project. It's now available in Adobe .pdf format:
>Two Cautions:
>Some of the chapters are BIG, ranging from about 500k to 1mb apiece,
>because they contain a great deal of the original color artwork (even
>at 72 dpi it's big!)
>RQ: Slayers bears little to no resemblence to the original RQ game or
>Chaosium's Glorantha setting. This was largely due to contractual
>reasons... see above.
