Sharper Adventures in HeroQuest Glorantha

Robin D. Laws

Quest for Story! Quest for Adventure!

"I am impressed. Robin has done it again. He's applied his incisive power to come up with a versatile and understandable system of creating story driven adventures in Glorantha. Sharper Adventures in HeroQuest Glorantha is a must for every Narrator and player."
                    - Greg Stafford

"I am excited to see that Robin Laws has written a useful guide to gamemastering (and playing) in the amazing world of Glorantha. I read it thoroughly, and think it has handy ideas for other roleplaying games as well, though obviously it is particularly focused on entertaining campaigns set in rich universes."
                    - Sandy Petersen

"Despite the title, this invaluable reference is useful to gamemasters and players alike for any game setting. Laws' guidelines are scalable, helping focus character motivations, NPC behavior, adventure goals, and the campaign as a whole. The chapbook presents an easy-to-use adventure structure fostering player agency while letting the gamemaster steer things towards a satisfying, coherent narrative. A worthy addition to the ever-growing (yet all-too-short) shelf of gaming advice."
                    - Jason Durall
