  1. And possibly even in places where there are anti-Chaos fanatics. The Sartar battalia long having a group known as Headhunters.

    The Many and the One, or has there always been a Yelm?

    My guess is it's related to the earth or farming, due to it also being found in Navestos, the farming god. (There may be shared root in Earthtongue between Nav and the theyalan Nalda, which seems also to have a similar connection, with Nalda Bin the stick farmers and Ernalda.)

    Why are Pelorians so (comparatively) culturally diverse?

    Well, there is Turos in Pelanda (who Lodril grew jealous of and their priesthoods fought, according to the Entekosiad) and likely Shidan in Rinliddi (who is one of the husbands of Basekora along with Lodril), and Kostaddi's Gerendetho (now primarily seen as a son of Lodril, but was noted as formerly leading his own pantheon in GRoY. It's also notable that III-1 on the Gods Wall has been identified as both Gerendetho and Turos. And Genert)

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    They may also be the Eolians, who are reindeer herders, and will later (during the great darkness) raise stone circles across northern Peloria.

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    That name (or rather Ustrandlings) is found in King of Sartar (page 77 of the new edition), as well as in SKoH and BoHM. -ing is commonly used for "children/descendants of", suggesting that some prominent figure from them was known as Ustrand at some point. It's possible it was a corruption of Vuranostum.

    Swords of Central Genertela

    Until the game is accessible for more people, I have found a wiki created by some people which has Alkothi pictures. here and here. (Minor spoilers for events of course, but linking to the pictures themselves shouldn't give away too much.)
  7. Blinding Shadow, Freezing Rain Gale, Searing Bolt, and Falling Wind are all lesser air gods (although Searing Bolt does share its name with Finovan's sword) rather than specific powers. Although they may have their own specializations (such as the air elementals mentioned on 177 of the RuneQuest Bestiary)
  8. Some subcults are anonymous, not because of their rarity, but by their ubiquity. Helamakt is an aspect of Orlanth Thunderous devoted to fighting with his winds. Many of his holy places would be indistinguishable to the larger god. Also many Garanvuli ancestors' shrines will also be shrines to him, as Helamakt was Garan's father. (BoHM 91) It's probably a perfectly valid thing to have a clan with a shrine to Helamakt counting as one to Orlanth Thunderous and providing Summon Air Elemental. (In the forms of Killer Rain Gale, Blinding Shadow, Searing Bolt, and Falling Wind) (In much the same way that a shrine to the Seven Mothers which grants Mind Blast is also probably a shrine focused on Irippi Ontor, who is the mother who provides that spell for the cult. (RQ:G 304)

    Do any of the 'Planets' have Rings?

    I could see nebulas being common amongst the Love Star and War Stars/Celestial Marsh/The Lakes. The stars there are already so dim that it appears more like smudged light rather than a proper constellation. There may be a bunch of nebula there. (Which fits well with Histipis' claim that there are planets there producing new stars.)

    The Many and the One, or has there always been a Yelm?

    On the other hand I'm not sure if Daysenerus was the ultimate Nysalorian sky/light god In this earlier thread Jeff describes Daysenerus as being bodhisattva like, and as the protector of the Little Yelm Cult, from which it can be inferred he's not the god worshipped himself. If we take this into consideration it's possible that he is more of an intercessor figure. Monrogh calls the Daysenerus/the High Light/Yelmalio the Brightness of the One Light (HotHP 108), which could suggest that the One Light was the actual Nysalorian deity, which could be interpreted as Yelm, Nysalor, or Aether; depending on how you look at it.

    Notes on the Many Suns and the Sun Gods of Prax

    The unit description of the Praxian Sun Dome does mention their forces using archers and places units of them on the same importance as their phalangites. It's likely that bows are far more common among Yelmalians than the tokens and such portrayed.

    Notes on the Many Suns and the Sun Gods of Prax

    Ooh, this is very handy to have, thank you! Although I must confess I was more meaning what cults got things like Kargzant and Elmal, where they're listed as regional variations with notes like that. Sorry for the confusion!

    Notes on the Many Suns and the Sun Gods of Prax

    I don't suppose it would be possible to ask what gods are listed as variations in Gods of Glorantha? I realise it's still a work in progress and probably a big request, but it's worth a shot.

    The Many and the One, or has there always been a Yelm?

    Brightface is interesting, as Brightface kills Protector Among Seven, sticks his head on a spear and places it above his hall. Was Protector Among Seven an earlier Sun God?

    The Many and the One, or has there always been a Yelm?

    I'd be happy to continue on with things here. These are all very interesting subjects.
