    Developed by Black Shamrock, the self-proclaimed "up-and-coming RPG specialists": http://www.gamasutra.com/view/press..._RuneQuest_To_Life_With_AllNew_Video_Game.php

    Black Shamrock is also working on Paranoia CRPG and helping development of Cyanide's Werewolf action RPG. Based on Linkedin profiles, Paranoia or this RuneQuest CRPG might be an isometric RPG. Or maybe both, considering the size of the studio?

    BRP/RuneQuest is a great system and Glorantha is one of the deeper and more realized settings, but I'm really dubious about how a true adaptation would translate to a CRPG; advancement doesn't really have the D&D Skinner Box going for it for one thing, the power curve is much, much flatter, and if you can't lose a limb, it's not RuneQuest/BRP. But hey, if it's something a little a long the lines of KoDP, with a focus on individual characters vs. a whole tribe I'm down.

    Rogue-like with perma-death and short campaigns with end points like Oregon Trail?

    Chaosium VPs' posts also suggest that this project is very early in development:





    From comments ha says that this has "Uncle Ken [Rolston]’s approval," whatever it means.

    (And I wondered what Ken is up to these days, apparently he's actually retired.)

    Please go back to TES and fuck Todd into submission, Ken.
    Anyway, this is worth following.
