Without any doubt the surprise of this month is the disconnection between The Design Mechanism (authors of the RuneQuest 6 ruleset) and Chaosium (owners of the rights of RuneQuest and Glorantha) so there won't be a renewal of the license allowing to use these trademarks from july 2016 onwards and their ruleset must have to appear under another name without any relation to them. The future of the games related to Glorantha will be based in a recovery of the RuneQuest 2 ruleset with added elements from RuneQuest 3 and RuneQuest 6.
Regarding the future of other languages editions of RuneQuest 6 (like the one published by Runa Digital in Spain which I reviewed previously in this blog post) it's not clear how this move by Chaosium will affect them.
To know more about the matter you may read the announcement by The Design Mechanism at Google+ and their forums, as well as this announcement in Chaosium's blog and this Runeblog post.
