It was in this form that I first encountered it, appl it’s possible there are differences between the and editions of which I am unaware.
Such an emphasis comes at a price, of course, most notably its singular authorial vision, but, if one shares that vision or is less interested in providing one’s own, Apple Lane has a great deal to offer. Frank July 15, at 3: Among the townsfolk, there are a couple or three cult connections that would serve well as an introduction to the greater setting.
What’s so important that he can’t protect his own source of wealth? I ran this in June, but I am sorry to report that everybody found the attack on Gringle’s Pawnshop to be a howler. As crazy as that sounds, it actually makes sense in context and might even be described as “normal” for old school Glorantha.
Whereas many consider Glorantha to be a “selling point”, I find it to have too much of a “cost” of setting depth runequst interest me. However, the buildings aren’t what make Apple Lane interesting; it’s the inhabitants of the place that give this rural locale its unique charm.
Then I started watching Deadliest Warrior and realized it wasn’t. The product includes two scenarios, plus a brief introductory piece in which it’s suggested the PCs begin play as newly initiated adulthood inhabitant of Apple Lane. Whiteeye’s extinguish spell brought a near TPK that led to between-adventures drilling on lighting a torch in the dark “This is my torch!

Apple Lane ‘s second scenario is “The Rainbow Mounds,” which could be described as this module’s equivalent to the Caves of Chaos, as it details a large cave complex filled with inimical creatures. Just too many impossible things before breakfast. Apple Lane was originally published in as “Scenario Pack 2” for RuneQuestbut was revised in for inclusion in the aforementioned boxed set. I am glad that Runequest over time went the way of understating its tie to the Gloranthan setting and became more of an “open”, DIY system.
As to the “funny” races, we did have jokes about orange sauce and such, but in my more recent play, while there were still jokes, it really wasn’t all that bad though I’m not sure I’ve ever had a PC duck – we have had PC newtlings and baboons though.
In a setting other than Glorantha, this would seem implausible, but I can runeqiest buy that a Runelord of Issaries can’t forsake the demands of his cult to protect his material livelihood.
Anthony July 14, at 3: I was immersed in RQ2 back in the day so I find baboons more interesting than wacky. What stands out to me, though, is that, again, every baboon and outlaw has a name and many have personalities, histories, and individual motivations.

Brunomac July 15, at 3: Back in the day, I think I did actually run Gringle’s Pawnshop. The DM is instructed to leave the room for awhile, while the players figure out where they hide the gem and their general plan.
Eventually they overcame the trollkin and Whiteye ended up using Divine Intervention to escape though. I was leery of the pawnshop defense scenario so we did an expanded set of “initiation games” then went directly to the Rainbow Mounds. Such a comparison is probably unfair to both adventure modules, but there’s a certain appropriateness to it nonetheless, for each was bundled in a boxed set through which many people were first introduced to their respective rules systems.
RuneQuest is Runequedt, at least that’s how it was seen in its earliest days. People of Pembrooktonshire is better: Oddly, I’ve never run Apple Lane, though I don’t think it would be that hard to fit into another setting.
Posted by James Maliszewski at 8: What’s more, most of the inhabitants are given personalitieshistories, and motivations. Heh, in my most recent Runnequest campaign, Whiteye’s Extinguish vs.
I don’t mean spple dwell too much on this, but I nevertheless find it amazing how much detail and, dare I say, “story” is eunequest within Apple Lane ‘s brief text. Frank July 14, at 1:
