Runequest returns... again.

It looks like a company called Design Mechanism has cut a deal with Issaries Inc to publish yet another new edition of Runequest.  Good news for RQ fans, although with Mongoose continuing to publish their version of RQ under the new name of Legend, there is the question whether or not the RQ audience is large enough to support two different (if not hopefully fairly compatible) versions of the same game  Best case scenario, both versions do well, and the fans get support from two different companies that they can use for their games.  If not, the divide between the version that supports the Glorantha setting and one that offers a more generic fantasy setting may fragment the RQ community enough that neither side wins.
