  1. I've seen several mentions of large Lunar farm manors operated with slave labor being established in the Dragon Pass area. There was supposedly one in Apple Lane, and also in Nymie Vale-- certainly others that I'm not aware of. The GM adventure book says that for the one near Apple Lane, that by 1626 the nobles have fled, the slaves escaped, and the manor is in ruins. I presume most of the other ones in the region are similar, except for the documented Lunar holdouts in the vicinity of Alda Chur. Were there ever any maps of these places? Or descriptions, including numbers of workers,
  2. I asked this question on the Facebook group, recently, and got some good answers. I explicitly asked with a view toward creating "gameable moments" in an upcoming campaign, and I urge everyone to adopt that attitude, or as the Olds say around here, "Maximum Game Fun."
  3. I would like a hardcopy of the revised "King of Sartar" novel. There are a few listed as available on Amazon, but I would like to purchase from Chaosium, to support the company, and also to take advantage of the free PDF policy. I also can't tell if the Amazon copies are the revised edition (the picture is certainly wrong for that) or an older printing. There don't seem to be any copies in the USA warehouse of Chaosium. Are there any plans to reprint this book, or should I resign myself to buying from Amazon? Thank you!
  4. I have continued to read on, and can confirm this problem does not occur in Chapter Two.
  5. I was about to ask the same question. Those pictures are good enough, and evocative enough for my proposed Glorantha campaign, that I would buy a book that contained them, not only as play aids, but also to support the authors.
  6. So as a new Glorantha enthusiast, I am doing the recommended thing and reading the "Prince of Sartar" web-comic. And it is there I discovered an annoying problem with incorrect links: Many (at least six so far) of the "next" button links on the Prince of Sartar web-comic when you are viewing the English version of the will take you to the next episode, but on the German version of the comic. I have attached a picture to better explain this. I have to back out of the comic to a previous index page and then manually select the next episode if I want to see the English version. If I un
  7. Hello again, OP here. The replies here have been everything I could have hoped for! Thank you for your insight. Here are probably my top three takeaways: 1. OK, the area was called the Grantlands. I understand why that information wasn't included in the one sentence that RQG devoted to the area, but once you know the term a whole world of search engine queries opens up to you. 2. This one is embarrassing, but also proves my instincts were correct. This area and its brief description got me excited enough to ask my original question-- I knew there was something there that I was intere
  8. So help out a newcomer to Glorantha. Make sure I have this straight in my head-- The Zola Fel river valley, AKA River of Cradles has three broad regions: 1. Northern stretch, centered around Pavis/Big Rubble. Sartartite/Pavis urban culture mostly. 2. Central region, "Sun County", culturally Yelmalian. 3. Southern Region. Page 126 of "Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha" says the lower valley had been settled by Lunar farmers, but this colony was destroyed around 1625. Where could I find out more about this colony? Seems like an interesting region, and ripe for a campaign se
  9. Where can I get a good, large map of the town of Clearwine? Either a file that I download and take to local copy shop to have them print on their large color plotter, or a poster-sized map that I order from a company? Even better if the numbers and text entries are a separate layer that I can turn on and off for printing. Or just not on the poster map from the notional merchandise selling company. That way I can add my own label dots as needed. After all, I still have the smaller map from the GM screen to reference. I seem to remember seeing a place where you could buy these ma
  10. If you ever run any more one-shots on Roll 20 for new players, I just found out about Glorantha and would love to play in a game. I'm the kind of person who needs to experience the systems in an actual game to really understand them. Thank you!
  11. OP here, I want to thank everyone for the great advice. It seemed like a clear consensus that the GM Screen should be my next purchase, so I ordered it. Also, after weeks of looking, and being sure that there weren't any hard copy versions of Glorantha Classics left, suddenly I was able to order "Borderlands and Beyond" here. So I did. I only budget myself $100 spending money per month, and those two items were 2/3 of all of it, even including my two Gencon discount codes. After some more thought and reflection, and considering all the input that it really is a good introduc
  12. Hello Friends I have decided to get into Glorantha. So far I have purchased the core rule book, and listened to the first seven or eight episodes of the Tales of Mythic Adventure Podcast (very rough start, but now liking it a lot). The podcast suggested a few locations I might be interested in, and based on that I bid for some products on Ebay-- the Dorastor book was sniped away from me in the last ten seconds (well played!) but I did score Sun County for what I thought was a reasonable price. I am new to Glorantha, and almost completely new to the BRP ruleset. Which is weird,
  13. Does the leatherette edition have artwork from the front and back cover of the hardback editions inside it somewhere? Or do we just lose those pieces if we buy the more expensive book?
