This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we barely scratch the surface of RuneQuest (1978), Chaosium’s classic first foray into RPGs. We talk about the games origins in the earlier wargame, White Bear & Red Moon (1975), the skill-based RPG, the limitations of class as a concept, the different sorts of magic and, seriously, that’s more than enough for one half hour. We’ll be returning to RQ several times in the coming weeks to cover it all!
