Merrie England is a supplement originally for the RuneQuest game.
However, because of the changes to the Mongoose RuneQuest Third Party Licence, Merrie England has been converted to Basic Roleplaying (BRP).
By the very nature of RuneQuest and Basic Roleplaying, it will remain compatible with the RuneQuest system and could be used alongside Stupor Mundi, Val-de-Loupe and Deus Vult.
What does Merrie England consist of?
The first supplement was Merrie England:Age of Eleanor for Mongoose RuneQuest. This covered the period of the Angevin Kings of England, between Henry II and Henry III.
The second supplement is Merrie England:Age of Chivalry and is an extension of Age of Eleanor, covering most of Christendom, descriptions of Heaven and Hell, information on the major Demon Lords, rules on interacting with Angels and Demons, a mini-campaign, information on the Crusades and much more.
You can buy Merrie England through most Friendly Local Games Stores or online by clicking the "Buy It" option above.
Are any future supplements planned?
If Merrie England goes well, I plan to bring out a series supporting it. The planned supplements, in no particular order, are:
- Merrie England: Age of Adventure - This will detail several mini-campaigns, each covering one of the campaign ideas described in Merrie England: Age of Chivalry.
- Merrie England: Age of Crusade - This will cover the Second and Third Crusades, the Knightly Orders, Crusader States and new professions. It will not be overly heavy on historical detail but should contain enough to have a ball in the Holy Land.
- Merrie England: Age of the Infidel - This will cover Saracens, Moors and Mongols, with a Gazetteer, new backgroudns, cultures and scenarios.
- Merrie England: Age of Chaos - Although Merrie England has its fair share of warfare and disruption, it is nothing compared to the generations before and after. This will cover the Civil War between Stephen and Matilda as well as the Barons' Wars of Henry III's reign.
I am expecting these to come out at roughly one a year, or one every two years, so it will be slow going.
I will be posting links to reviews of Merrie England here, once I become aware of them.
