Anyone run Thieves World?

Post by GMWestermeyer » Mon Feb 05, 2018 6:06 am

Anyone besides me ever run a Thieves World campaign?

Especially using the old Chaosium boxed set? https://rpggeek.com/rpgitem/44004/thieves-world

excellent review of the Chaosium boxed set on Black Gate magazine: https://www.blackgate.com/2013/04/18/vi ... ves-world/

I own the old Chaosium Boxed set, but I have never gotten around to running anything in this world. I know that one of my friends owned this boxed set back in the early 1990s. He ran both AD&D and RuneQuest campaigns and I know he brought the Thieves World stuff with him at times, but I think he would rather just pull ideas from the set than actually run games in the setting. He used several published and homebrew settings with us though so I could be misremembering.

Thieves World did come up briefly when I was compiling my list of RuneQuest settings. There is also a thread about running Thieves World with AD&D 1st Ed over here, but it never got any responses. This thread started out talking about Thieves World fan sites, but did develop into some discussion of the setting in general too.

Hope this helps! :)

Ages ago... like, lord, 30 some years ago? I ran the boxed set using 3rd Edition Runequest.

Not long after that, I ran it using 1E AD&D; all I remember from that one was that the players set up a drug cartel that used the sewers. Went up against some local crews.

Haven't used it since, though I break it out every couple years for inspiration.

What is the Companion Book for Thieve's World from Chaosium like?
