Cool. By the way if you want to name the adversaries you can on the web page click on the generated name and type your own - like Gondo Holst

Using Glorantha in RPGs  - 
 
Had a great PC generation session last night.

Spent maybe two hours exploring my framework and then figuring out what each player wanted and then onto the background of each character.

We are playing in the Griffin Mountain campaign in 1621 - the guys decided they would be on a quest to find the Wind Sword on the back of a prophecy to bring down the Red Goddess for Orlanth!

Mix of backgrounds and "classes".

Using the draft GTG and the released Griffin Mountain book there is a ton of info, both on the campaign area but also the originating areas for the characters.

The GTG is such a good resource - really looking forward to getting the electronic maps too.

Basically all Orlanthi, from different areas and backgrounds - decided not to drink the (Lunar) koolaid!

I am looking forward to it, the Grffin Mountain material is great!

Click the blue tag icon next to the search box.  You can set an auto-assigned tag there.  Note that if you have an auto-assigned tag set, and you set another tag for a topic, RW will crash.  Bug reported.
