  1. Whereas a riddler will know that both are true, and must therefore be destroyed.
  2. When it comes to the ridiculous Dara Happan claims as to the original and unmoving centricity of Yelm, I always go back to Zerel Fan. Their sun god had three early manifestations, Early Light, Rising Orb and Victorious Zenith. The sun had to rise before it reached its zenith. QED. Thanks Greg. YOUR Glorantha Really Did Vary!
  3. Wrt Ringworld, I did say that the celestial ramifications were interesting, not simple. It requires a Realist rather than Mythicist analysis, and relies upon the idea that Glorantha has suffered many impacts both from outside the Ring (eg the Crater, Kero Fin) and from inside its plane (eg Magasta's Whirlpool). The Darkness is the result of secondary impacts triggering forest fires across the local arc etc. As so often with Glorantha the mental reward is not from the initial theory but rather from calculating possible outcomes and then seeing how it integrates with the wider mythology. πŸ€”
  4. There is no 'fry', only dough or doughnut. Riddle : Craft (Jedi Mindtrick) πŸ˜‹
  5. MGDV - from time to time I play around with the idea that the lozenge is a 'map' in a Great Ocean on a Ringworld. Some interesting celestial ramifications and the possibility of Pierson's Puppeteers and Kzinti on the plains of Pamaltela! What's not to love???? πŸ˜‡
  6. Or, as suggested in a previous thread, at least partially due to continual slave trading with Dozakiland, Eristiland, and Koromondol.
  7. Truly glad that he eventually saw the Darklight! If you are suggesting to someone calling himself 'the Helering' that there is something unattractive about being naked and blue..... all for one and one for all!
  8. ITRW woad wearers often fought naked. Why be embarrassed about your personal Barntar-plough? πŸ˜‰
  9. You think that is crazy? Try this primitive heroquest as we try to chase Shepelkirt from the sky! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=36&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwje-_Cszr3iAhWPQxUIHYRMBOkQFjAjegQIARAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FCooper%27s_Hill_Cheese-Rolling_and_Wake&usg=AOvVaw3sjG914-RgptKOezQL1Tkx
  10. Ashbourne, Derbyshire, UK, Shrove Tuesday. Chaaaaaaarrrrge
  11. It could form an interesting basis for a campaign in Safelster and the Return of ArkatπŸ‘Ή
  12. Jajagappa is the god of Lost Rocks, a astronomical feature. Umath crashed in the North. The Darkness may well be the result of a meteoric impact. Ghelotralas came to ground in the west, with significant effect, and the recognition of Lodril as heat within the earth. Mernita is lost in the fall of a 'moon'. One of Argrath's later battles involves a 'rogue planet'. IMHO there's every indication that Glorantha is under massive bombardment from time to time.
  13. Is this why the Hidden Greens don't last very long? ☹️
  14. The problem with that would be the lack of the prolific vegetation one would normally expect for apatosaurs to eat. However, MGDV, and dinosaurs are quite prolific in the Elder Wilds, and I like your thinking!πŸ™‚
  15. The terminal -a certainly isn't easily applicable, otherwise there will be some confused worshippers of Elmalhara. Helerharans on the other hand....
  16. My post to which this is a reply was referring to Pent, rather than Prax, which has a very different ecology - both biological and spiritually.
  17. Further research indicates a lack of knowledge relating to mustang herd migration. Over the last few years there have been attempts to track those in Montana and Nevada, but I cannot find the outcomes.
  18. If one follows the observable Mongolian model, this migration is often 'local lowland-local highland' rather than enormous distances north and south. I would also assume that there are wild herds, the result of centuries of escape from the main herds followed by breeding in the wild. These would be far more likely to follow a north-south axis.
  19. Whilst this does state A source, it doesn't state that it is the ONLY source. Gata might be mimicking a creature with Air linkages in order to gain some leverage within another element's area of control. YGWV
  20. Dammit, I had been doing so well....😡
  21. Yes, but what of the other wind cultists? Doburdun, TarUmath, North War Wind etc. Is there a primordial '7 to save the world' myth, with parallel outcomes?
  22. Musing upon this, especially since the GL monsters didn't directly reach Rinliddi, makes me wonder just how widespread the basic myth form is.
