    Humakti sword fighting ability

    it is best to think of the sword fighting ability rating to derive from the death rune ...it does say the rating is "at least the same rating" Think of it like this: It is an association between the two...the Sword fighting ability and the Death Rune...not a causal link....like many other issues association doesnt imply causation...that is the meaning IMO of the word "linked" in this case

    Tournament of the Masters of Luck and Death

    so...to reiterate my question... Do we know any of the NAMES of the winners? or are they forgotten when they "become" Belintar?
  3. We know there have been 21 winners of the Tournament of the Masters of Luck and Death. Does anyone (Jeff?) care to speculate on any of the names and origins of the winners? Or are their names forgotten as they become the latest incarnation?

    Marriage Ceremonies

    Has anyone written any notes or have any thoughts on what the ceremonies for each of the Orlanthi marriage styles look like ...what do people wear?... what happens? what sacrifices are made? what do they eat ?

    Heroes to Superheroes

    Ok...so what makes a hero a demi god then...its it in terms of a certain leavel of mastery over a certain rune, creating your own feat, and having followers who you can grant magic to? In game terms would it be like having a pool of Heropoints that you as a demigod can reward your followers with for doing things that emulate your deeds/feats?

    House Rules from Veterans

    so what does full ability to manipulate the rune mean in game terms, a certain level of Mastery?

    Heroes to Superheroes

    Mastering the Infinity Rune the only option? I think not as harrek is a superhero and he has instead mastered Death...but I am more thinking what magical things can mortals do that makes them gain the identifaction of superhero? are they imune to non magical dmage, live forever, never age? ofr is it some cool things associated with the Rune they focus upon?

    House Rules from Veterans

    Does any one have any mechanics they use to distinguish Superheores from Heroes in Glotantha? Is it a matter of having a certain number of Feats as a certain level ? or banking heropoints to purchase Superhero abilities for huge amounts?

    Heroes to Superheroes

    So what makes a Hero a Superhero? What do those individuals in Glorantha said to be "Superheroes" have or what have they done to be identified as such?

    Who are the Tamali

    Either that or I am a Hero of Lhankor Mhy

    Who are the Tamali

    The Tamali were an ancient Darkness Race, "Iflfador" (Mortals) powerful in the Darkness Rune. (Think of this in the same way as Agimori are powerful in the Fire Rune) Some have survived into the Third Age by being isolationist and secretive. Their bloodlines have been kept been kept relatively pure over the ages through their isolation. Some of them used to live in Seshnela and then Ralios in the First Age. They hide in the cities of men, in dark dank basements and holes, hiding and stealing to exist. They are feared and hated by humans and called Demons, but t hey as much men as any other mortl races of Acos

    The Earth Twins

    As i though we seem to agree they are not connected to Varstapoor and his sister Vestenbora ,...so who are these twin female demi gods?

    The Earth Twins

    Argrath has a unit of warlocks who use the powers of the Earth twins: two young women: one corpse blue and garlanded with skulls; the other rosy and angelic. Does anyone have any ides on who these demi-god Earth Twins are? Are they connected to Varstapoor and his sister Vestenbora, the children of Arim by an incarnation of Sorana Tor, of the Third Wane who displayed the awesome power of their cult in the Battle of Falling Hills? or is the name just a coincidence?
