Description Edit | History

Chaosium Blog: The 2020 Greg Stafford Memorial Award for Gloranthan Fandom goes to Nick Brooke.

Nick Brooke has been a long-time passionate Glorantha fan and advocate of Gloranthan gaming. This year Nick has kicked that advocacy to another level through his support of the Jonstown Compendium, Chaosium's community content platform for Glorantha on DriveThruRPG.

As well as releasing well-received products of his own, including The Duel at Dangerford, Nick is using the community content format to bring back Gloranthan material from the golden days of the 1990s including the gloriously updated A Rough Guide to Glamour. This is based on the Reaching Moon Megacorp Freeform that Greg so memorably played Great Sister in at RQ Con Down Under in 1998. It's great that via the Jonstown Compendium this sort of long out-of-print yet richly-resonant material has a means to reach an all-new audience of Glorantha fans, and Nick is a driving force behind that.

In addition to releasing highly-received products of his own, Nick has also been very supportive and helpful to other creators, and maintains a comprehensive list of all the content being added on a weekly basis. The list has grown from 5 to 35 pages, and is being updated by Nick on a regular basis, reflecting the success of this fan-driven program and the growing interest in Greg's world.

On receiving the award, Nick said:

I am honoured to receive the Greg Stafford Memorial Award for 2020.

I first met Greg 35 years ago; I think of him every day. He changed my life by introducing me to David Hall and the Reaching Moon Megacorp, the leading Gloranthan fan publisher of the 1990s. Now, through Chaosium's community content programme, everyone can publish works set in Glorantha -- the kind of easy-going creative collaboration Greg always encouraged. "Your Gloranthas Will Vary: please share them with us."

It has been a pleasure to write for the Jonstown Compendium, and to support my fellow creators. My profound thanks go to Suzanne Stafford and the Chaosium board. I dedicate this award to Steve Thomas, who taught me everything I know about layout when we worked on Tales of the Reaching Moon magazine.
