Timinits & Trolls: Art for Umathela (2)

Timinits & Trolls: Art for Umathela (2) | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

I have already mentioned that I feel myself greatly inspired by (faux) Slavic mythological paintings for my Umathelan campaign.

Viktor Vasnetsov (Виктор Михайлович Васнецов) was a brilliant Russian painter who specialised in mythological subjects. Here are a few paintings, along with my own Gloranthised comments.

Timinits & Trolls: Voralans in Timinits & Trolls | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Pamaltela is notorious for its dangerous forests and its death-filled jungles. Many delvers have tried to explore them, few have ever returned, and usually to die a horrible death as plants would burst out of their ears and eyes.

Chroniques de Glorantha: Héros - Pirul, apprenti chevalier de l'Ordre de l'Hirondelle

Chroniques de Glorantha: Héros - Pirul, apprenti chevalier de l'Ordre de l'Hirondelle | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Il n'y a pas d'hérédité à Loskalm, et celui qui se targue de son ascendance manque à son engagement moral. Pourtant, Pirul n'a jamais pu ignorer être le fils du roi Gunrecken, malgré le fait qu'il fût un bâtard au regard des principes Seshneliens. Et puisque la bâtardise n'était pas un crime, il serait un jour baron, puis comte, puis roi. Pirul est un garçon qui rêve, et ses fantasmes lui font côtoyer les saints qui sont autant de compagnons d'armes avec lesquels il terrasse les aldryami et les wyrms. Ses années de service militaire à Point-Nord ne l'ont pas détourné de ses aspirations ni de son romantisme que seuls les ennuis attirés par son air hautain et parfois pédant parviennent à éteindre pour quelques temps.

The Rune Under Water: Whirr... Click... Resetting | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Well, last Summer I had a book come out. It's about American politics from a libertarian viewpoint, so for the few of you who might be interested, the link is here. What knocked me for a loop is that since my last book came out, I had to work four times as hard to sell a quarter of the copies.

Bourdieu meets Glorantha

Je crois que cet extrait permet de comprendre pourquoi, au quotidien, dans les clans sartarites officiellement sous domination Lunar, la vie peut néanmoins, souvent, continuer à fonctionner “comme avant”, et aussi pourquoi toute agitation “rebelle” ne fait pas systématiquement l’objet d’une répression impériale.

Chroniques de Glorantha: Première chanson de Loskalm - La vérité de l'allégresse

Chroniques de Glorantha: Première chanson de Loskalm - La vérité de l'allégresse | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Nous sommes en 1618, la dernière semaine du mois de Vernus, une semaine sans fêter les saints. Dame Heloïse, Prêtresse de Kyria et épouse du Comte d'Aisenor, fait un voyage dans la province de Pomons pour rendre hommage à son père défunt. Elle retrouve le Duc Meriatan qu'elle connaît bien et qui a intérêt dans sa venue parce qu'il souhaite préserver Loskalm du terrible Royaume de la Guerre, et entrevoit le rôle stratégique que prendra Aise dans quelques mois si la Mort Sur Son Cheval se décide à attaquer.

Chroniques de Glorantha: Héros - Messire Durcàn, Chevalier de l'Ordre de l'Hirondelle

Chroniques de Glorantha: Héros - Messire Durcàn, Chevalier de l'Ordre de l'Hirondelle | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Durcàn naquit à Salona, en Pomons. Son père, Silus, était chevalier, et il lui était inconcevable de ne pas suivre les traces paternelles. Si Loskalm offrait une société d'égalité des chances et que rien ne présumait de l'ascension des individus, reste qu'être né dans une famille de chevaliers conditionnait les désirs de gloire et la représentation que chacun pouvait se faire d'une telle classe. Durcàn était un pragmatique, en ce sens dérogeant quelque peu à la doctrine de l'idéalisme Loskalmi, ce qui ne l'empêchait pas d'adhérer au Rêve de Siglat. Lorsqu'il devint chevalier dans l'Ordre du Griffon, chevauchant aux côtés de son père, il rencontra Meriatan, futur héros de Loskalm, qu'il ne quitterait plus avant longtemps et avec qui il partagerait guerres et gloires.

Chroniques de Glorantha: Héros - Dame Heloïse, Comtesse d'Aisenor, Prêtresse de Kyria | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Heloïse est née dans la province de Pomons en 1571, d'un père forgeron et d'une mère qui veillait à éduquer leurs deux enfants. Son enfance la disposait à devenir une pieuse adoratrice de Xemela, pour tout le temps qu'elle passait à l'hôpital de Pomona à aider sa mère, mais c'est en assistant à un tournoi de chevalerie que Sainte Kyria bénit son existence en l'enjoignant à rejoindre l'ordre lorsqu'elle eut à soigner les blessures d'une femme chevalier qui adorait la sainte.

Much on the plate! | Temple of the Reaching Moon

As you all have no doubt heard by now, Pavis: Gateway to Adventure is off to the printer and we should have ordering information up in the next few days. At 416 pages, this is our biggest book to date, even mightier than Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes. And with over two hundred pieces of art, charts, and maps, there’s not a lot of empty space in Pavis, nor stat blocks or other ”filler” material. Just a lot of information, adventure, and fun.

Timinits & Trolls: Plant-Men

As implied by their name, Plant-Men are sentient plant beings. While some may appear to be of very human-looking appearance, most feature completely vegetable traits. Some may have leaves or vines for hair, or a greenish hue to their skin, others are covered in bark or have non-animal twists to their limbs.

The following has been communicated by Loz:

Kingdom of the Flamesword

Kingdom of the Flamesword | Glorantha News | Scoop.it

Some of you may recall that, in addition to the Book of Glorious Joy, I was also commissioned by Issaries to write a similar book on Seshnela and the Rokari. That fell through, as ideas of what Seshnela should be changed. In the none-to-distant future, Issaries/Moon Design will be publishing the Guide to Glorantha which will include the new, canonical view of Seshnela, and we both agree that it's important for any release of my material not to clash with that.
