Some things are worth the wait. Sixty-five million years in the making for Jurassic Park? Totally worth it! And while RPG publisher Chaosium hasn’t waited quite so long, the return of its in-house magazine 41 years after it was first published is still very welcome.

Wyrms Footnotes, which chronicles Greg Stafford’s World of Glorantha published its first 14 issues between 1976 and 1983. After a mere 29-year hiatus, it returned again in 2012 with Issue #15, produced by Moon Design Publications. And in 2017, Wyrms Footnotes is back again!

“Our goal is for Wyrms Footnotes to be a place where we can regularly publish articles, maps, short scenarios, background, fiction and more, exploring Greg Stafford’s World of Glorantha”, said Chaosium vice president Michael O’Brien. Loved by its fans for more than 50 years, Glorantha is the mythic setting of the role-playing games RuneQuest and HeroQuest, board games like White Bear and Red Moon, novels like King of Sartar, the webcomic Prince of Sartar, and computer games including King of Dragon Pass.

Submissions are now open for Wyrms Footnotes and anyone who would like to contribute is asked to check out the submissions guidelines page for more information.

Each issue will be overseen by a special guest editor (who may or may not be a Chaosium member of staff, but will all share a deep and abiding passion for Glorantha).

The guest editor for Issue #16 is Ian Cooper, Chaosium’s line editor for the HeroQuest RPG and author of recent Glorantha releases The Coming Storm and The Eleven Lights. Issue #17 will be overseen by long-standing Glorantha contributor and creator David Scott, who is currently helping lead a 32-week “Group Read” of the monumental Guide to Glorantha on the Chaosium forums at BRP Central. Award-winning RPG designer, author and passionate Gloranthan Sarah Newton is guest editor of Issue #18.

Wyrms Footnotes will appear bi-annually, at least initially,” O’Brien said. “We’re happy to consider anything Gloranthan that is well-written, playable and consistent – each issue will contain a potpourri of subjects relating to Glorantha and the Hero Wars.”
