Thieves’ World Companion (1986)

Five years after Chaosium’s Thieves’ World box set, in 1986, a companion appeared. The book covers characters and events in Thieves’ World anthologies three through six, mainly the fall of the Rankan Empire and the rise of the Beysibs.

Sadly, the miracle of cooperation that was apparent in the box set did not last. The stats appearing in this book are only for RuneQuest and ICE’s Middle Earth Role-Playing/Rolemaster system. Says writer Lynn Willis, “Like Sanctuary and its mythos, the hobby of roleplaying also evolves. Several of the game systems which our original supplement embraced have, for various reasons, fallen by the wayside. Others are not usable by us at this time.”
