PLEASE NOTE BELOW MY CHAT WITH TAHGC. Apparently it seems that, if the
authors were willing, RQ:AiG could be put up "en web" IF, say, we replaced
"RuneQuest" with "BananaPeel" and "RQ" with "BP".
Authors? Comments? I have a web site that would love to host THAT.

A brand new RuneQuest will be coming Summer '98. It's a complete overhaul of
the system, however, and won't bear much resemblence to the classic

Chaosium now owns the rights to Glorantha, and Avalon Hill owns the rights to
the name RuneQuest and the game system. Chaosium will be publishing their own
new Glorantha RPG, and we'll be doing our new RuneQuest. While a draft of
Adventures in Glorantha was written, it didn't meet either the approval of
Avalon Hill or Chaosium, so I'm afraid it will end up in limbo.

The author could post his own work, though it would have to be without
RuneQuest references for our purposes. Chaosium may not want the Glorantha
name posted -- you'll have to contact them.
