Legend for a buck

I make no bones about it, I consider RuneQuest II by Mongoose to be the finest game design in the entire tabletop rpg industry. I know those who prefer a less simulationist style of game will rise in protest, but for my money, MRQII is the best. So now, with Mongoose cutting loose from Issaries and releasing its game engine under its new Legend brand, it's only fitting that they release the corebook with a splash. The pdf is being sold for $1 at DriveThruRPG. So, go get it! Now!

Special note to my group, at some point I will definitely run this game, even if it's just with my daughters and a few of their favourite plush toys. If you want in, now is the best time to own this game.

Im intrigued. I have the Elric RPG. Do you already own Legend?

Yes, I have both MRQII and Legend, which is basically the same game with the RuneQuest/Glorantha content stripped out. It's effectively the Chaosium BRP system with the burrs filed off. If you like d100, you'll like Legend. Having said that, an OSR guy like you might find GORE or OpenQuest more to your liking since those are really bare bones versions of BRP. GORE can be downloaded for free at

By the way, Mongoose is currently selling all its MRQII pdfs dirt cheap as well, including its Elric of Melnibone books. I don't know how long they will be available.

Yea, I have BRP. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to add these to my christmas wishlist.
