Designed for those who want to try RuneQuest before migrating to the full rules, it offers a great way of getting to know one of the most celebrated roleplaying game systems out there.
What's more, RuneQuest Essentials is free. You can download it fromwww.thedesignmechanism.com/downloads (or via DrivethruRPG and our publisher page there). If you feel we're being overly generous, then there's a Donate button you can use to make a contribution of whatever you feel appropriate - or, at Drivethru, you can Pay What You Want.
What we want is for you to try RuneQuest. We'll be publishing an introductory scenario, Sariniya's Curse, very soon, and there's already a wealth of additional free material available on the Downloads page.
So if you've never tried RuneQuest before, there's no better time, and no better way, than with RuneQuest Essentials.
Its a complete game, fully illustrated. Pretty cool if you ask me. There are some other neat downloads on that page as well.
