The German RuneQuest - Society

The German RuneQuest Society is a gamers' association which was founded in
Germany in 1991. The society can count 150 members now. Most of these
members are germans (120), but we have also a some foreign members (from the
UK, USA, Australia, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Italy and France). Our
main goal is to give support to RuneQuest, all RQ compatible games and the
games world Glorantha. Most of our activities are centered on Germany, but
some are intended to give benefit to all RQ- and Glorantha-fans everywhere.
(A WWW page is under construction and will be announced soon.)

The annual 30 DM membership fee for the German RQ Society entitles members
to receive all issues of Free INT or Tradetalk published that year and
finances the round letters and other activities the society undertakes. The
RuneQuest - Society has its (German) RuneQuest Con at Whitsun each year as a
special event, but does make appearances on other regional and even some
international events.

The RuneQuest - Society publishes or distributes the following material:

- - Free INT Magazine, the German language magazine for Glorantha, RuneQuest,
and compatible games. So far we produced 13 issuses of this magazine. The
issues # 3 and 5 - 13 are still available.
Issues # 4, 8 and 13 are Cthulhu issues. The other issues have mainly
RuneQuest/Glorantha topics. The price per issue is 4.80 DM plus postage 1.20
DM. We are printing three to four issues per year.

- - RuneQuest - scenario booklets. So far we have printed two of these
booklets, in German language. # 1 (Schatten in den Huegeln) has four normal

these booklets' scenarios are placed in Sartar, near Jonstown. The price of
