As some of you have noticed I have been on a bit of Glorantha/RQ kick as of late. I've really been interested in exploring all the new iterations of the settings and the rules.
RQ second edition (the old school Chaosium one that is) and the third are pretty much where I left off, and frankly looking around I am totally overwhelmed by the crazy-quilt amount of options these days. You've got Hero Wars, Heroquest, Openquest , Mongoose's Runequest (first and second), Steve Perrin's Quest Rules , Runeslayers, BRP, GORE, etc.
Sweet screamin' Orlanth! A seemingly never-ending menu of choices I found once I opened the lid on this thing.
So for a casual, on-again/off-again lover of RQ2 and Glorantha--who tends toward the older school, lighter end of rules--what do kindly folks out there suggest and why? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each? What's crap and what's gold?
Can a kindly Glorantha-phile help a brother out here?
