Timinits & Trolls: The Order of Cerberus

MRQII is dead and Mongoose has lost the licence, but the Italian version of MRQII by Asterion Press (with way better quality and nicer art, especially for the Monster Coliseum) is still alive... Such are the intricacies of game licences.

Why Old People Have Grey Hair by Chris Lemens

"Father, why do old people have grey hair?"
"Son, it has to do with death. We know people go grey when they are approaching death. The first person to approach death and go grey was Orlanth.

Rob Heinsoo: Glorantha: the West is East

Rob Heinsoo: Glorantha: the West is East | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

If you are not interested in Glorantha or in the ways that long-established gaming worlds grow over time, this post may not be for you.

The main thing that bugged me about RQ3 (way back in 1981!) was its introduction of the sorcerers and knights of the West.

Quick Summary of Gloranthan Cultures, Part One: The Orlanthi of Dragon Pass and the Holy Country | Temple of the Reaching Moon

Quick Summary of Gloranthan Cultures, Part One: The Orlanthi of Dragon Pass and the Holy Country | Temple of the Reaching Moon | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

The Orlanthi are one of the four Major Cultures of Genertela (along with Westerner, Pelorian, and Vithelan). All Orlanthi share a few common features: 1. the clan (an extended kinship group based on actual or claimed descent from a common ancestor) is the basic unit of social organization; 2. Orlanth is acknowledged as a Storm King and Lightbringer (although not necessarily the most locally important god); 3. Ernalda is worshipped as a senior Earth Goddess (although not necessarily the most locally important goddess); 4. both are tightly (if sometimes seemingly inexplicably) linked; 5. the Orlanthi pantheon is worshipped, give or take some members: 6. Sacred Time is is a period of constant ritual and magic; and 7. literacy exists, but is typically confined to a priestly sect. Beyond these 6 common features, there is room for significant diversity within the Orlanthi culture.

Myth of the Month: Hrelar Amali | Moon Design Publications

The City of the Gods (Hrelar Amali) is located on the Crimson Plains between Ralios and Seshnela. It is the sport where Flamal, beloved of Ernalda, fell at the hands of Zorak Zoran during the great War. For this reason, it is one of the most sacred spots in all Genertela. At Flamal’s death, the Enerali people built a temple to him, and added a temple to Ernalda herself and one to Xentha, who carried off Flamal’s body, as appeasement. After Ehilm was resurrected at Hrelar Amali, a temple was built for him and the Theyalans and Seshnegi added temples to Orlanth and Magasta. Later temples to all the greater deities were addedm as well as many to lesser gods.

The Xeotam Dialogues | Temple of the Reaching Moon

Greetings Glorantha-philes! Today’s posting is a rare treat – a fragment of the Xeotam Dialogues, that proved so populars amongst the Western sorcerers in the later Third Age. The date of the original Dialogues are believed to be circa 1480, although this particular copy is dated from 1618. The Dialogues are between the master wizard Xeotam and his young Ralian apprentice Aanor. Three cities boast of being the site of the original Dialogues, as Xeotam resided in (or near) those cities in the late 15th century: Azilos, Dangk, and Arnlor. High Watcher Theoblanc is known to own a collection of these Dialogues (which first became popular in his youth).

Quick Summary of Gloranthan Cultures, Part Two: the Westerners | Temple of the Reaching Moon

Quick Summary of Gloranthan Cultures, Part Two: the Westerners | Temple of the Reaching Moon | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

This is a work in process, based on several years of discussions between Greg Stafford, Dan Barker, and Jeff Richard to get the look and feel of the Gloranthan West down. It is significantly different than the approach taken in recent fan publications and may surprise folk. However, this is pretty close to the approach that will be taken in future Moon Design publications.

Note: the pictures are inspirational only and have many details wrong (particularly as to color).

Anniceris: [JDR] Cadres, Personnages & Récits

Un défaut bien connu du monde de Glorantha est que la quantité de matériel accumulé devient tellement énorme qu'il risque de devenir inaccessible aux nouveaux joueurs (voire aux anciens). Glorantha ne serait plus qu'un jeu qui n'intéresserait que des "Meneurs de jeu" explorant les textes ésotériques de Greg Stafford et une poignée du "Public Captif" des fanatiques fidèles de la secte. (Voir Imaginos pour sa distinction entre jeu "immersif" dans un monde et monde "submersif/dispersif")

Anniceris: [JDR] L'échelle de Glorantha

Le monde de Glorantha de Greg Stafford est le meilleur monde de fantasy jamais créé pour ses mythes (pour sa linguistique, ce doit plutôt être Tékumel et pour jouer ce doit être celui que vous avez créé vous-mêmes avec vos joueurs). Mais en même temps, la rançon de cette richesse mythique est que le monde est quasiment conçu pour faire l'objet de versions contradictoires.
