  2. I’m not sure what you mean by “the” app shop. The next release should be macOS and Windows versions that our publisher will sell on Steam, but likely other outlets as well.
  3. YGWV, but I don’t think Ekarna (at least as a cult) survives the death of trade during the Great Darkness. And the Pure Horse Clan of the Storm Age Hyalorings was clearly not mainstream back then.
  4. I didn’t want to use the Riskland character because I don’t think that one was Greg’s, but yes it muddles things even more.
  5. I think even when Greg was trying to be, the results didn’t look quite right. -a is not consistently a feminine suffix, for example: Orstohra was a Heortling king.
  6. While I’m happy to see the myths subject to multiple interpretation, 1. The Riders are from Nivorah (GRoY.30); 2. Verapur is a northern city.
  7. Without thinking about this a whole lot, Peloria has tended to be ruled by empires, and empires tend to leave local rulers intact.
  8. Could well be, though since neither the horse people nor the Vingkotlings are Dara Happans, I assume the Dara Happan version of their names is incorrect.
  9. Heort’s people are Heortlings, so it does seem likely these are Ustrand’s people. Of course, what Heortlings call others can be anything at all — “Horse Spawn” was Greg's term (used for the Grazers in the early days of resettlement). IMO Vuranostum is a corruption of Vuranoste — note all the Grazer names like Hendroste, Jardanroste, etc. And note that the Dara Happan script has a glyph for -um.
  10. I wanted to get those in, but the map on p.348 of Guide to Glorantha shows them all way too far north (and probably under the Glacier). That’s always the problem with Glorantha, there’s always cool stuff just outside the map…
  11. Like Peter said. You pay the malasps for protection against the malasps. As beings of the sea, they have plenty of ways to deal with you if you don’t pay up. Other parasites are free to attack your ship, as long as they too have paid the malasps for the right to be on the ocean while doing so.
  12. Hmm, given it’s from Sandy, this is probably relevant though I still don’t see any Fire Tribe Lightbringers myself. (Elmal guards the stead.)
  13. I wrote some memories of working and playing with Greg at https://kingofdragonpass.blogspot.com/2018/10/farewell-greg.html Thank you Greg for all you’ve given me over the years. I literally wouldn’t have had any kind of game development career without you. Or have branched out my interests into mythology and anthropology without you having made games informed by them. And maybe wouldn’t have had a tlayuda or mezcal. Best wishes on your final trip to the Other Side.
  14. To me, she was closer to Humakt. (I can’t recall if this was from Sandy or not.) Tracked down http://glorantha.temppeli.org/digest/gd8/2001.03/2170.html but haven’t located Sandy’s original online.
