  1. Advertised in Issue No.6 of Wyrms Footnotes. What did this become?
  2. Wyrms Footnotes Issue No.4, page 24 Godday used to be called Holyday
  3. Wyrms Footnotes Issue No.4, page 12 "the three Wells of the Yar-arni" - what are these wells? - who are the Yar-arni?
  4. Wyrms Footnotes Issue No.3, page 26 "Goblins" are listed amongst the Elemental spirits, along with Salamanders and Undines. ???
  5. Wyrms Footnotes Issue No.3, page 24 Who is "the gentle Grey Mistress"?
  6. In Issue No.2, Sartar is called "Sartar of Bullshill". I do not recall this moniker being used anywhere else.
  7. To the Kralori, anything non-Kralori is "demonic". In my Glorantha, Basko is definitely Darkness [anyway in East Genertela the main opposition is not Chaos vs Anti-Chaos, but Ignorance vs Splendour, and Nightmare vs Anti-Nightmare]. The Basko-Sekever relationship is more complex. It could be a Kralori construct (i.e., anything anti-Kralori is labelled "Sekever", just like many Christians label as "Satanic" anything non-Christian). TBH there might also be a web of reciprocal influences.
  8. (off topic) These is no such thing as "Japanese characters" -- they are just Chinese characters used to write the Japanese language. From the Wikipedia: Kanji (漢字, pronounced [kaɲdʑi] are the adopted logographic Chinese characters that are used in the Japanese writing system. They are used alongside the Japanese syllabic scripts hiragana and katakana. The Japanese term kanji for the Chinese characters literally means "Han characters". It is written with the same characters as in Traditional Chinese to refer to the character writing system, hanzi (漢字).
  9. It's not. For instance, final -s is pronounced [t] -- hence "internet" written inteones in Korean 🙂 But we are deviating. Again, for want of details about the various writing systems, I recommend we use R/W [language] and Speak [language]. Anyway, what good does it do to you to know how to read the Latin script when trying out to figure out the meaning of a text written in Finnish?
  10. the only thing I remember from the animated TV show is that I liked the female characters a lot but that I was confused by their similarly-sounding names (in French they were Venusia and Phénicia)

    here's the whip-related part: http://2ndage.blogspot.com/2020/01/whip-weapon-stats-rqg.html
  12. OK I've settled for Star Wars-inspired tauntauns. Plus, the players enjoyed the surprise 😀
  13. I'm famously anal about differences between scripts and spoken languages etc. (look at the complexity of the language and writing systems skills in The Celestial Empire); however, for RuneQuest, given the absence of detailed sources about the various languages, I stick to a simple Speak [Language] / R/W [Language] system.
