Much like the Miskatonic Repository for Call of Cthulhu, Seventh Edition, the Jonstown Compendium is a curated platform for user-made content, but for material set in Greg Stafford’s mythic universe of Glorantha. It enables creators to sell their own original content for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, 13th Age Glorantha, and HeroQuest Glorantha (Questworlds). This can include original scenarios, background material, cults, mythology, details of NPCs and monsters, and so on, but none of this content should be considered to be ‘canon’, but rather fall under ‘Your Glorantha Will Vary’. This means that there is still scope for the authors to create interesting and useful content that others can bring to their Glorantha-set campaigns.
It is a sixteen page, full colour, 2.14 MB PDF.
The layout is clean and tidy. Both artwork and cartography are decent.
Where is it set?
A Lamp for Esrola is set in the Holy Country, beginning in Nochet and taking the Player Characters to the Shadow Plateau and back again.
A Lamp for Esrola requires RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha only, but the Glorantha Bestiary will be useful for its details on Trolls.
