Stone and Bone – A scenario for Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha

This full scenario for Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha is designed to slot in to any campaign where shamans can be found.  It is written with Praxians in mind but can easily be converted to be set elsewhere.  A collection of plot hooks is included, along with maps, walkthrough, and suggested aftermath.  The setting includes a write-up of the Straw Weaver Clan of the Bison tribe.

The adventure will appeal to most characters with an outward bent.  Combat is likely, but can be avoided with sufficient cleverness and skill, but it is assumed that danger will be faced.  Scaling tips are included to make this a challenge to heavily armed and armoured parties.

NOTE: This scenario has horror elements relating to Scorpion Man biology. Gamemasters can easily adjust the presentation or presence of this material for their own and their group’s comfort levels.

Stone and Bone can be followed by The Gifts of Prax, but both adventures can stand alone.

“This scenario is a great introduction to adventuring in Prax – the nomad clan and how it operates and the importance and behavior of shamans are well-illustrated. The adventure itself is a nice mixture of environmental threats and hideous opponents. The authors also provide very helpful advice for scaling encounters, and nice touches like a map that shows what can be seen if the party has a flyer (as a lot of even beginning RQ parties will.) If Chaosium chooses to publish a set of scenarios set among the nomads of Prax, I’d recommend they include this one.”
