    Does anyone know or care to speculate on the parentage of Mastakos? we know he was captured by Orlanth at Daliath's Well and that he is blue-skinned and is worshipped in a female form in Melib so this seems to suggest he is a Water enitity?

    Tell me more about Queen Leika

    We know that Leika was exiled in 1615 and took refuge in the hall of King Broyan with her close supporters. Following the Colymar tribal rebellions of 1615 and 1616, many exiled and outlawed Colymar followed her path to Whitewall. What happened to her during and after the Whitewall siege? What did she do in the Great Winter? Did she join Broyan in Esrolia? What did she do before the Dragonrise? Does she become the Chieftain of the Blackspear Clan? What does her harp Jeweled Note do?

    The Interior Art Needs to Change

    I still think that the issue would never arisen if the OP was working at work and not reading the PDF... that aside i can understand the concerns mentioned...but...these seem to be based on a very "western" contemporary viewpoint (perhaps neo-feminist or anti patriarchial) which seems to say exposed nipples of a woman relate to sex...this isnt the case in the ancient world or in many other cultures.... are we to say we should whitewash the ceiling of the sistine chapel ? or paint a censorr strip across the Birth of Venus or chip away the marble of the Venus de Milo? I think not...

    Summoning RuneQuest Gamemasters

    The Immersion Principle: Ensure, stimulate, and foster a feeling of an immersive heterotopia for your Players—focusing upon thinking and feeling “as their Character” in the moment so that the social frame of their characters remains dissociated from their “real life” selves—and to avoid bleed-in or bleed-out of out-of-character emotions, thoughts, physical states, and relationships. The Play Space Principle: Acknowledge and nurture your “play space”—the merging of the imaginary world of the setting, game rules, and real-world location defined by the spatial, temporal, and social boundaries—the ritualized actions and agreements of Players that create another form of self-delineated “otherness”—a heterochrony that is adopted temporarily during play. It is your duty as a Gamemaster to oversee the layering of elements: characterizations, locations, and the use of sounds, smells, and color, and combine these elements to best create the mise-en-scene and enhance the Player’s emotional involvement. The Inclusivity Principle: All genders of the antagonists and protagonists in your games should be portrayed as psychologically complex, vibrant, or sexually transgressive, or ideologically ambiguous, flawed, expressive, and intimately grounded in emotions. Ensure that Players realize that they act in a world that is suffused with social meaning, which both makes their activities meaningful and is itself transformed by them. Remember don’t eschew tragedy and cynicism; not all stories have happy endings!
