Description Edit | History

Remake of Chaosium's White Bear & Red Moon. Also published by Oriflam as La Guerre des Héros in 1993 (in French) and in Japanese by Hobby Japan.

The role-playing World of Glorantha was created as a semi-public-domain project by Greg Stafford around 1966 as a mental exercise. Eventually, Greg published a wargame based on his world called White Bear and Red Moon. In fact, Chaosium was founded to allow Stafford to publish this boardgame! This game later became the excellent Dragon Pass game. White Bear and Red Moon was enough of a hit to spawn a second war game, Nomad Gods, and, more importantly, inspired some D&D fans to write a gaming system that would allow role-playing in Glorantha. Thus was RuneQuest born.

15 Dragon Pass Counters Recreation
A “conservative redesign” of the Dragon Pass counters: the unit images have been redrawn in vector graphics, but the old layout and overall look have been largely preserved. Based on the original design and illustrations by William Church. The size of the counters was increased to 9/16″.

45 Dragon Pass, Complete Rules (Revised)
Heavily updated and includes the full attack table for melee/missile with chaotic, physical, spirit resolution, and diplomacy/emissary/dwarf luck/assassin tables on single reference sheet. This is not a rewrite, zero changes to the core rules, it *is* the original rules, reorganised so that every relevant factor in every phase of the game is presented on a single page, so that there is no ambiguity about missing special rules / rules exceptions etc.
