Description Edit | History

This is a collection of articles from the out-of-print Wyrms Footnotes magazine produced from 1976 to 1982. Being a magazine that started as support for the White Bear and Red Moon boardgame and only later became a RuneQuest magazine, the material presented does not contain any stats or game rules save for some character write-ups that are intended for Arduin and not RuneQuest. The largest section of the book is a discussion of the gods and goddesses of the various Gloranthan mythologies.

More Information Edit | History

From the “Welcome” section:

Welcome to Wyrms Footprints, a reprint of the best articles from the late and much lamented Wyrms Footnotes magazine.

[…]

There were fourteen issues of Wyrms Footnotes produced from 1976 to 1982. Seven of the first eight issues were edited by Greg Stafford, #3 was edited by Tadashi Ehara, and the last six by Charlie Krank. Some articles from early Wyrms Footprints [sic] were also reprinted in the RuneQuest Companion published by Chaosium in 1983.

The reprinted articles in this volume are substantially unchanged from the originals. Where possible we have any major contradictions with subsequent published works, or more recent Gloranthan investigations. Some articles have been expanded to include portions that, for various reasons, were not included in the original. Lastly, we have also presented a number of fragments of hitherto unpublished information.

Enuf! Enjoy!
