Before the fall of the Middle Sea Empire, Second Age Umathela was a major centre of God-Learnerism.

Clan Hiording of the Colymar

Clan Hiording of the Colymar | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

After selecting the goods they want to salvage, the party decides to help the three wounded Last Step fyrdmen onto a horse, and the victim is loaded onto the fourth horse. There is little room for other gear to be taken along, so the party leaves behind the barrels and crates in the cave, and return straight North towards the Pavis road.

Anniceris: [JDR] Arkat Art | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Chez l'artiste Mike Perry, plusieurs illustrations pour la prochaine encyclopédie sur Glorantha préparée par Jeff Richards. J'aime beaucoup cette scène de sacrifice à Arkat aux Sept Têtes, qui représente bien la complexité de la mythologie gloranthienne.

King of Dragon Pass now available on Good Old Games | Glorantha News | Scoop.it
I have fond memories of playing David Dunham’s King of Dragon Pass on my Pentium 1 PC back in the late 90s, watching it chug along and making a brew or rolling up a ciggy while I was waiting for a turn to process.  Not only was it a solid strategy...

Timinits & Trolls: Maggot Lamia

A maggot lamia is the offspring of a mortal woman (usually Fonritan) and a succubus in male form. Maggot lamiæ resemble beautiful women from the waist up, but have a bloated, white, wormlike body. For some strange twist of fate, a maggot lamia hasn't inherited the lamiæ's magical talent for illusion, and hence cannot modify its appearance. The maggot lamia has also lost the chaotic taint associated to her lineage.

Timinits & Trolls: My Umathelan Campaign

Timinits & Trolls: My Umathelan Campaign | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

The campaign is centred around the landlocked cities of Arstranwal and Varanswal. Both are but a shadow of their former glory; both, however, are ruled by a strong-willed ruler who does not accept Malki decadence, and who is doing his best to have his city live up to its past grandeur. Both are also extremely jealous of their neighbour, and the Count of Arstranwal and the Duke of Varanswal are always competing in everything; lately in trying to revive the ruined cities that dot central Umathela, like e.g. Rampart.

The Kickstart for Glorantha begins Sunday, November 18! | Moon Design Publications | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

The Guide to Glorantha is written, illustrated, and lovingly charted with scores of color maps that give never before seen detail to the entire lozenge. And yet, we can do even better! We'd like to make this the most awesome Glorantha book ever - heck, one of the most awesome fantasy books ever.

Imagine - an oversized, hardcover, full color coffee table book. 10 inches by 12 inches instead of 8.5 by 11.

Timinits & Trolls: the Evolution of Gloranthan Runes

Timinits & Trolls: the Evolution of Gloranthan Runes | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

I've always loved the sheer beauty and the immediate, evocative power of the Gloranthan runes. I've also found their design, with the clear, thick black line with slightly irregular edges one of the most alluring aspects of Glorantha.

My first contact with Gloranthan runes was obviously with the original 25 runes as presented in the Chaosium RuneQuest 2 rules, viz:

Mike Perry Art. Com: Glorantha | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Hey all, It has been awhile I know but June/ July were very busy months and I'm only now starting to get back on track with updating my blog etc. I've had some pretty exciting gigs including a Cover assignment for AEG and some Interior work for Green Ronin's upcoming Night's Watch module for their Song of Ice and Fire RPG Campaign Setting. Once the products go live I'll be able to post them here but in the meantime, I did get permission from my AD Jeff Richard over at Moon Design Publications to post some of my recent work for their Glorantha RPG setting.
