  1. I like this. Good job! It gives me more aof a sense what things look like, when they should be happening for my story ( which is happening during both Sacred Time & Sea Season).
  2. I havea heard of a few of theses, but not all of them (well not the Glorantha ones). But now I am curious how that works in Glorathan. Tefa Woolvoice- The Koza Mother, is an Ernalda, and her daughter Kevashala- was conceived on the herquest to get the Koza( apparently). So while Keva maybe being set up to be the next chief of this clan, ( and going to probably marry one of the native men-folk of their Tula) I struggle to understand how to push her toward being a leader. I do like it thought, Kevashala growing from outsider girl, to the first woman emerging on the Tula (and the
  3. Well to your last point: The clan making cannot revolve around one person. Great point, I am still sort of transfixed how do things, for my Star Hearth Clan. The young girl-child who created the flower path ( she's somewhere between 9 and 10, maybe as old as 11), too young to be any kind of leader as she is not yet even a woman. The Tula itself is a mystical place- Voria's Garden, cause it some kind of beautiful Green Age/Dawn Age like ferility, and yet also facing Time's ravages, as these women and their livestock step into it. This clans first chief will most likely
  4. Do we know what the Clan making Dance ritual actual entails? We know Ernalda and Orlanthi did it at the Dawn to make the Storm Tribe.. .but what about Earth & Fire, and Darkness tribes?
  5. Welcome to Glorantha. As a newbie myself, I say to you "Talk to the Tribe", read the old books, like Thunder Rebels and Storm Tribe, Read Heroquest Glorantha, and Runequest Gloratha. I think for me Glorantha isn't about high commitment, its about /feeling/ the setting. Your not walking through a market place-- your walking through the largest section the Greand Market in Nochet , the great city of the Goddess Ernalda, and many other Earth Goddesses, where the GrandMother's rule is LAW. But you're also playting with adorable alynx kittens in a sleepy taven in Nochet, where a ma
  6. To the Tribe, So a friend pointed out to me that that GM Screen PAck, has a non player character sheet for NPCs. Do we have digital form fillable versions of this? and rules to make NPCs, or generate them quickly? Or is it just the standard character creation rules with some some things loppped off? Also what about the Squad Sheet is the PDF, fillable of that? Please and thank you, Heart.
  7. The only problem with marrying one way into a bloodline is that it dictates who can marry whom. And defiantely cuts off some avenues of intermingling. If blood A only marries from Bloodline B, then at some point B will have no one else avaiable, and B->C same thing . Which will eventually create a bottle neck. But is there a way to work an Esrolian House style system in? Considering that some of these Orlanthi maybe Esrolian by birth? Admitedly Esrolia relies on its cities, much like the Lunar groups, to help to build upon these Houses and the like, which is something a small clan
  8. Reasonable- also everyone recommend Resurrection Ertugrul... hopefully I can find an subbed version. But back to The idea of clan creation from an in universe perspective. The year is 1625, as the Glimmer clan is leaving they watch the Dragonrise--- they watch as the Lunar Empire is a delt a bad blow. Surely the Lunar continigent with the group who's been with them for a decade has some feelings about this. THey've basically been left alone with little to no contact with other Lunar folks because- they're living with a bunch of Orlanthi. How does this effect the Heroquest for the
  9. Reading about the this question of Queens, does me make think about how groups other than the Orlanthi, deal with the female rulers, now. Dara Happa is unlike to have them (since the Ten TEsts of Kings requires a male body apparently?). The Lunar Empire probably does (though with Moonson as Emperor we'll never have a MoonDaughter... running the show since he just.. body steals? But this is a good point, that there are other alternatives.
  10. Now its question of colating these many many ideas: I think the problem with the Tardis effect as you've said is the potential to 'break' the space they live in., a failed heroquest, could undo years and years of work. And I don't know if they'd take that risk. I think they's solidify their land as much as possible only undergoing the heroquest for more land expansion... when it was nessacery. I guess after reading the Imperial Handbook, I loved the Anime-inspired visuals, but I was like new clan like this couldn't support the trade network and city building--- nessacery evoke those
  11. Actually She is a White Lioness ( so she may have eyes of Glimmerstone, or her tail tip, eyes and claws are made of the lumouns stone). So much better, hmm the Lunar Priestess (of the white moon? Not the red moon, that threatens all with consumption and obliteration). I can see Lunar and Earth Priestess working on concernt with Air and Fire Priests work to turn the earth and make the sun beat down upon it where Heler's waters feed it.
  12. Thanks for your really interesting ideas: I should preface the posting with : The Glimmerstone clan, actually moves out of dragon pass in 1625, in Sea Season of 1625, on the first day of Season season they've already packed up, and left. art of the reason they move out of the Pass is that it to them is 'too crowed' ( also the mystical pathway is leading them out of the Dragon Pass. So they're connections to the socio-political things are probably going to deteriorate as they leave.) I mean it may not, but I haven't figure out where their Tula is completely. It should be probably closer
  13. I do envision my clan as Female Led, but they're not male hostile. They just are not. Their real female lead and oriented leadership structure reflects their earliest years in 1613 ect. And the fact that they never truely had a enough adult men. So they've had to sort of deal with it. Their first protofyrd, all women (Vingans, Babesteer and Maran Gor worshipers). And they seemed to gain more women with each passing year, simply because they too people in who needed it (didn't make the clan who's land they were living on happy hence telling them to leave) Actually I guess the Koza's exis
  14. I like this plan, but now this means I have to understand what in the Lozenge any of this actually means? Like what answers are correct? I don't have a group to do this with (I don't know how to GM or the understanding).. but dang would that help in form things. But that does make me think about the world that must exist.
  15. Well all of this is super informative. I definately think this clan is more Peaceclan, or a Balanced clan. From their outset 'There is ALWAYS another way' has helped and held them together. I think male Exogamy is what I was going for originally, that the men marry out more often, but if/when the women do marry out, they always make sure to leave a child or two with the clan.
