Home of the Bold – The Director’s Cut

For 2024 the Reaching Moon Megacorp is proud to announce the much-requested return of Home of the Bold. Two runs are planned for 2024, with a possible third (TBC) in 2025. Now in a ‘Director’s Cut’ form for (just!) 50 players, and aligned with the current published Glorantha timeline… but still jam-packed with plot and intrigue.

As with previous runs we have produced a background book, A Rough Guide to Boldhome which is available for everyone at DriveThruRPG. This has a lot of all-new content, so even if you have an original, there is a lot for you to enjoy in this revised edition.


The year is 1625 and the great city of Boldhome is occupied by the Lunar Empire. In Kethaela King Broyan is dead, his army massacred, along with many Sartarite exiles and rebels. In Prax Argrath’s attempt to strike at Dragon Pass has failed, his army annihilated by Lunar demons and his own whereabouts unknown.


In the south the new Temple of the Reaching Moon is about to be consecrated, heralding the final pacification of the region. The Lunar Way is ascendant, assimilation is inevitable. 


Yet, those events are being overshadowed in Boldhome by a series of brutal murders and disappearances that are terrifying the populace and confounding the city constabulary. 


The scene is set for an interesting week in the home of the bold…


HotB is designed for 50 players who’ll take on the roles of people from the city, nobles from the tribes and the benevolent Lunar occupiers. The scenario takes place over 7 hours, with a 1 hour break.


More information shortly!
