My players wouldn't dare ask that question, but post a bounty on life weasels if they had whichever unsound idea. Or skunks...

Finding a Game  - 
 
Hello,

I'd like to join up with a Glorantha game or help pull one together (in person, hangout, or PbP).

I have some PbP experience in HQ and a fair grasp on how HQ2 works, but that's about it. I'm in EST and live in the DC/Baltimore area. Let me know if you are interested!

I recognize the Tortun style in pottery. It's a ceremonial mask for Great Arkat, friend to all races, who can take on any form He wishes. Hail Arkat.

Nothing like a horde of huge bright pink slugs in the morning.
 
"As bright pink as you can imagine, that's how pink they are," Michael Murphy, a ranger with the National Parks and Wildlife Service, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "On a good morning, you can walk around and see hundreds of them."

It would seem to be something you'd see only in a cartoon or at a Phish concert, but according to park rangers in New South Wales, Australia, dozens of giant, fluorescent pink slugs have been popping up on a mountaintop there. "As bright pink as you can imagine, that's how pink they are," Michael Murphy, [...]

Has anyone else read Greer Ilene Gilman's Moonwise and if so, do you think it would make good source material for heroquesting? In any case, it's a dense, daring, and amazingly well-written fantasy novel that would make a great read for dedicated fans.

Re: King of Dragon Pass

The encounter with the troll champion was very educational, in its own way.

I’ve mentioned this elsewhere, but +Dan McCluskey was our uzologist (though not uz dialect coach) for this scene.

Dear Moon Design,

Are you all planning to offer any advice to people who would like to use  FATE Core or FAE in Glorantha? I know Sarah Newton has done some work on this subject, but I was wondering if you all plan to weigh in or authorize someone to do so.

Normally, a Gloranthan character has affiliations with the Runes of the gods, spirits, principles of his belief system. Those are his spritual anchors in the vast spiritual world of Glorantha. - Most major gods or divine beings have three Runes (Orlanth, for example, Air, Mastery and Movement) - but some different aspects, subcults or regional interpretation may have different rune association for the same god! So it is a highly cultural dependend questions, to which Runes a character may have an affiliation.

And those Runes of the main spiritual belief system are not even close to all of the runes accessible or important for a character! - There are A LOT of Runes in the world Glorantha. And so some characters might pick up quite a lot of affiliations to very different ones - yet rarely in any meaningful intensity (but not unheard of).

We’ve recovered 91 percent of the wealth lost since 2007. After adjusting for inflation and population growth, that falls to 45 percent. And after adjusting for the unequal nature of the recovery, that falls even lower for the average household.

Did I forget to say “happy Friday”? #economy

Introduction
My primary interests are in avant-music and science fiction/fantasy. So you'll see a lot of technology, art, culture, and futurist links in my part of the digital world. I'm also a "liberal" so you'll see some of those political links here as well.
