  1. I love this discussion. It should be noted that this might be a cultural solution to a lot of potential conflict problems. If you can find a family tie between clans, it might result in an inter-clan dispute being resolved more "peacefully" than otherwise.
  2. Good idea g33k! That's inspired me to modify and make my own family history charts.
  3. I love this discussion. I've been spending a long time thinking about how I want more RPG's to be about inward growth rather than outward domination. It's one of the reasons I've made the switch from DnD to Runequest. I feel like there's more room for that kind of storytelling in Runequest. I really think Heartquintessence's idea is moving strongly in the right direction.
  4. Once again, thanks for all of the suggestions everybody! I feel like I have an endless amount of movies to watch now.
  5. Thank you everybody! This is really helpful! That traditional symbols book looks really handy...
  6. Hi everyone! I'm curious as to the origins of the Gloranthan runes from a design perspective. Are there any sources or information out there as to why they look the way that they do? Why death a cross, harmony three lines etc?
  7. The comic would be a good idea! Thanks for the suggestion Beoferret.
  8. I love art collages! One of my favourite activities is to recommend reading lists/film lists to people. It's so challenging to choose films. Glorantha is such a unique fantasy setting because I feel like it distills a lot of mythic ideas from across the world (while also adding Greg's unique vision). As a lover of mythology, there's so many easter eggs scattered throughout the world. I really dig how Ernalda is depicted with twin snakes, symbols that go hand in hand with earth and fertility around the world. I think it will be a challenge to bring to the table what I want to do with my players. I've always enjoyed bringing my players to powerful emotional places. I want to bring them on a weird mythic journey. I want them to almost feel like they are getting in touch with the primal world of myth. I think I'll need to ease them in slowly into the ocean of mythology. Film might be a good way to start.
  9. I have! That is a pretty cool book. It's one of those books where it made me want to get some more in depth information on the topic, so I started swimming through the reference list.
  10. I've always loved the pre-columbian history of the Americas and have considered running a RQ game set in those settings. There's a variety of mythologies to play with. Amazonian, patagonian, incan, north-west coast.... just to name the tip of the iceberg. There's clashes between large empires and smaller mini-systems. Also there were some cool mummy-kings who had way more political power than your average dead. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/travel/fascinating-afterlife-perus-mummies-180956319/
  11. So many cool movie suggestions. Tanna looks pretty awesome. A lot of these are going to end up on my own personal movie watching list.
  12. These have all been great suggestions! Hopefully more pop up. The Bahubali movie seems really rad. I've always wanted to try some Bollywood films out and it looks like a good segway. (Probably just for my own personal movie night, I doubt my group would be keen on subtitles.) The Moana suggestion might resonate strongly with my group because half of them are obsessed with Disney princesses. But hey! If that what it takes to steer my group into the realm of myth, so be it! There's also an australian film called Ten Canoes, it's one of my favourite films because just watching feels like entering a myth realm. No magic, just cool story structure. It was floating on youtube for a while. I'm also sorry Richard S for bringing you sadness!
  13. Hi there! Last summer I started discovered and started poring through all the Glorantha materials I could find and became a Gloranthophile overnight. I've finally succeeded in convincing my gaming group to play a game that is not Dungeons and Dragons. I love how Runequest stories combine the mythic sphere of storytelling with the grounded and human. I want to inspire my players to think about fantasy in this way using some pop-culture sources. I was going to host a "Glorantha Movie Night" to get their imaginations flowing. Are there any films that people can think of that have that right "Glorantha Feel"?
