Chaosium have launched a Kickstarter to re-release the 2nd edition of the classic edition of RuneQuest as the RuneQuest Classic Edition. This edition of the game, the first produced by Chaosium, eventually became the basis of licensed versions that further developed the game system itself and the setting of Glorantha, developing it into the later and more complex variants that are available today. This revisioning of the classic edition is ready to print now and includes errata, updates, and additional material, making this the definitive version of the long out-of-print version of this game. Backer pledges start at $15 for PDF versions and the ability to purchase add-ons, and there are different versions of the hardcover that can be purchased at higher levels, including leatherette.
The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise $30,000 at least and is running for 24 days, closing just before the year end. It has almost raised this amount already, but has a number of stretch goals including reprints of classic supplements like Apple Lane, Snakepipe Hollow, Griffin Mountain, and Pavis. These will be initially available as PDFs, some for free to backers and others at add-on cost, with print versions coming later in 2016.
