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’, instead 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 seventy-five page, full colour 30.81 KB PDF.

The scenario is can be easily be adapted to the rules system of the Game Master’s choice.
Where is it set?
Crimson King provides six pre-generated Player Characters which were previously seen in A Rough Guide to Glamour and Life of Moonson, Book One: The Characters. They consist of the Red Emperor, Moonson Argenteus, his bodyguard and chief spy Count Julan, his older sister, Great Sister, his cousin, The Red Dancer of Power, his daughter, Jar-eel the Razoress, and former rebel turned loyal captain and Chief Food-Taster, Beat-pot Aelwrin.
Crimson King requires RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha and ideally, the RuneQuest Gamemaster Screen Pack or the RuneQuest Starter Set.
