Tutorial game for Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha?
Anyone interested in a Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha (2018 edition) game that is designed to be explicitly tailored for people new to the system or setting?

A game where we might pause to explain the rules in a separate OOC forum, or to discuss the features of this unique Bronze Age world where everyone has magic and nothing is remotely European or Tolkien-esque.

Of course, I would also welcome experienced players, but as GM I am still learning the system, and want to cater to those in similar circumstances.

And for experienced players, I am probably going to be running the new Apple Lane mini-campaign from the GM Screen booklet. That is very deliberately designed to be introductory in nature.

Any interest, or suggestions to change?

Good idea. Iíve done exactly this, and itís a slow and easy way to learn the rules. Usual problems with drop offs etc still apply.

I'm a long-term fan of the setting and played very briefly with the system - not long enough to establish whether I really "get it" or not. I'm potentially interested depending on the expected post rate.

I've been interested in Runequest for a long time. I've played/run Call of Cthulhu for decades.

How much buy-in, that is book purchasing, would be necessary to participate?

This is me as well.  I'd love to try it out if you can put this together.

I am going to go ahead and start this game, but it may take a week or two to put it all together.

I aim to put the free quickstart rules to good use, and players need not buy any books ever if they don't want to. The summary of the rules in the quickstart gets the basics across.

I might be interested if there is still room. I'm currently in a CoC game elsewhere. I have the books for this game but I've only ever skimmed over the rules.
