Why Tradetalk?
We have often been asked why the magazine was called Tradetalk. In a way the reason is very simple. In Germany the RuneQuest-Gesellschaft e. V. or The Chaos Society, had been producing there magazine Schattenklinge for nearly 10 years. But this was not popular with most of the RuneQuest/Glorantha fans, because the main language in which RuneQuest/Glorantha material is written is English/American (and who can speak German except the Germans? - only a few people). So Jörg Baumgartner declared English to be Tradetalk, as English is understood in most countries, the decision was made to take the name 'Tradetalk' for the magazine.
