  1. 4 Rune Point Summon Inigo Montoya
  2. Give them the Mongoose source books. That'll keep them guessing forever๐Ÿคฃ
  3. The ancient tome "In Wintertop's Shadow" had unmelting ice....
  4. Both/and, rather than either/or
  5. Surely the POC are the extremist Helerings...๐Ÿ˜‡
  6. Or simply the provision of moving targets therefore....
  7. One must never forget the much maligned (& much maligning) Bored of the Rings, whose Prologue 'Concerning Boggies' informs us that "they are fully capable of overpowering creatures half their size when they get the drop on them" and that they stand "somewhere along the evolutionary line that leads from rats to wolverines and eventually to Italians." We ignore the Harvard Lampoon as a Gloranthan canonical source at our peril....
  8. I believe Pratchett would say it sounded quantum...
  9. If the impelling power is directed from the surface of the moon, that could be utterly terrifying during the Blue Streak.
  10. The sources state that it is a reaction to a loss of confidence in the solar spirits of the Celestial Empire, following the defeat at the Nights of Horror. This means that it has achieved its present position in slightly over a century. My guess is that it was always a minor tradition on the steppe, probably inherited from the Hyalorings.
  11. Your Glorantha May Resemble The Real World ๐Ÿ˜ญ
  12. Yeah. Always check references before shooting from the hip.
  13. Their methods have changed a little. Not enough for everybody's comfort, but a little. The screaming tends to be caused by intellectually tortuous arguments, not the torture of intellectuals.
  14. Nobody expects the Methodist Inquisition...
  15. It seems that both are accepted variant forms.
  16. While basing anything on Greg's linguistic skills is foolhardy in the extreme, I couldn't help but wonder whether the Zistorites managed to breach the walls of time and send one of their constructs back to screw up mythology, when I discovered that - in Italian - Orogeria means 'clockwork'!
  17. Remember, sir, that Leto has his Tomb of the Skull, Paul is revered as a liing god, and Leto the Second is the God Emperor of Dune. Mock not the Atreides. Seriously though, there were associated cult shrines throughout what had been Achaean Greece and Crete. Simply because Atreus only had a dedicated shrine at Mykenae doesn't mean that he wouldn't receive associate worship at the temple of Menelaus and Helen outside Sparta, for example. I would be amazed if he didn't. The present generalisation and simplification of cults does history, and players, no favours.
  18. Impossible. The small points are what really matter. The Devil is in the detail, and so is Urox.๐Ÿ˜‡
  19. Some of the counters are slightly smeared, though...
  20. What is the sound of one buttock farting, Grasshopper?
  21. Not so much a diet as a taster....
  22. At least nobody is suggesting the Cannibal Cult diet....๐Ÿ˜œ
