So one can get the trademark, and one can get the rules, but "some assembly required".

Greg/Issaries.

I have no idea what it All Means, though. A 'BRP/Glorantha' would require Issaries and Chaosium to both green-light it; a "Runequest Glorantha" with 'BRP'(RQ3...) rules would require the same, and also dodging the flak from Hasbro, who might be that much more upset about that combination, than either separately.

Cheers,
Alex.
