    I'm not in any FTF games, one of our longstanding players died a while ago, and we haven't felt like RPGing in their absence, though we meet for other things. I'm in an online RQ2 game and a RGQ one.

  1. Where Glorious Reascent of Yelm mentions the Good Sister and Bad Sister (Injerina and Bosjerina) it says something like 'we all know the tales about them' is anybody familiar with a particular terrestrial or gloranthan folklore tradition that this might refer to?
  2. Yeah OK, I guess I'm substantially wrong above. It's certainly a passion, and it's something personal in that you carry it with you, I don't think characters generate their own concepts of honour from first principles though. They buy into a code that is largely predetermined by their warrior culture. If one was brought up to believe that it's OK to work to death enemies who surrendered, one can do it without one's honour suffering. If one was brought up to respect a code governing parole, ransom and surrender then one can't. There's probably a bit of room for an individual to say "I accept the code except for this minor part", but one can't just say "I'm honourable and my honour lets me do anything as long as I don't step on the cracks between the flagstones"
  3. I would say it's definitely in the personal sense. Social honor would fall more along the lines of a specific type of reputation imo. I'd say the opposite (in the grand tradition of YGWV) a character's Honour rating to my mind measures their coupling into the society's honour culture. Things that people get very uptight about royalty, or footballers doing, they don't turn a hair about musicians and actors doing, some are expected to observe honour restrictions others are not.
  4. It is just Mob of Australia. Is this the time to confess I've been spelling it Mo Bastura for twenty five years?
  5. I produced this a while ago when someone was looking for friezes for a Yelmalio temple on Facebook
  6. I can't imagine the Char'un without Ma Tamara the moon mare. Though likely she is out of canon by now. She seems like their Twinstars revelation, allowing them to integrate with the Lunar Empire.
  7. Is there any chance that draft copies of Gods and Goddesses of Glorantha might make to Dragonmeet in November?
  8. This is a really interesting viewpoint on Northern Pelanda. I've been meaning for some time to do something based around the unusual local rules-of-engagement in Human-Tararg waves of afforestation and deforestation where there seem to be well defined refuge areas in which 'defeated' enemies are allowed to congregate under relatively benign oversight of the victors. Much to chew over. The Pyramid of Derdromus at Karresh and it's underworld connection is probably relevant to your 'Greater Spol' cultural area.
  9. There is an 'approved' font for the runes available at https://www.glorantha.com/docs/glorantha-core-rune-font/ It's going to be updated to include some sorcery practice runes but that hasn't happened yet. There is discussion at

    Severe severing

    The boards have been down all day in my part of the forest. As Jajagappa said, there's no applicable cannon, but if a Salmon can get Sea Eagle's attention it's very likely to be carried up to the sky world. The trick would be to get free at the right time to land near the top of the Skyfall, (and avoid getting eaten). Ideally you'd leave something better than lunch, to avoid earning Sea Eagle's displeasure.
  11. It took me a while to spot the fingers holding Aroka's head, so I began wondering if the fourth arm was a chaotic feature.

    Severe severing

    Maybe you could persuade Sea Eagle to carry you up. It might take a bit of trickstering to get out of your end of the bargain...

    Taunts!

    Alternatively the opposite "we can't be bothered to insult you properly" approach can work. e.g. call someone a stack packer or stork porker instead of a stick picker and and just shrug whatever if they get uptight about it.
