    Swords of Central Genertela

    I've also done a silver shield guy in the past, I think: https://www.deviantart.com/merlkir/art/GtG-05-White-Shirt-Day-446446797

    I do realize you're done with this, just something I thought of - you could also show her gorytos, peeking out behind her back. (And it's fine, I'd assume if it wasn't shown, that it's probably hanging unseen, on the other side of the unicorn)

    Gloranthan Slang.

    Being called a "walker" is a grave insult among the Hyalorings. You can even see it in one scene in Six Ages, with an additional rude gesture (curling up your fingers and "walking" them across your other hand). I suspect this one might've survived into the later eras in Peloria.

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    I'm glad this comes through in the game, we thought quite a bit about these concepts.

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    Yeah, I think that's it. The protagonists do call themselves Riders in the game.

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    Why should "Hyalorong" be the primary name then? (I honestly don't know David or Robin's reason, but to me it seems like an easier to understand name, a commonly constructed plural. Which for a game also played by non Gloranthophiles is probably good.)

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    Well. We hope. It depends on how the games sell and all that.

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    OK, I found it: https://pentmaniac.blogspot.com/search?q=hyaloring It's only slightly related to the era of SA, but what is there is different. (he mentions worship of Kargzant for example, the religious stuff is entirely different.) This part kind of fits, with a few exceptions.

    The Lore of Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

    Do you have a link to that, so we can compare?

    I think the Alkothi you're reconstructing would've obviously changed since the SA period, but if you wanted to - we used some Mayan influence (skull shaped jade death whistles), they have bronze spiked maces or spears, bronze or jade lamellar in a vaguely Chinese/Siberian style, Assyrian-like bronze bucklers or domed round shields. Their warriors lengthen their skulls, to mimick demons, and the huge ones are actually called "demon men". The best image for inspiration would be the illustration for a battle with the Alkothi, though that one is not on the Wiki. (yet?) Also you can look at Shargash: http://sixages.wikia.com/wiki/File:Shargash.jpg

    Not sure how relevant this could be for you, but there are some Alkothi shown in Six Ages.

    This is the travelling stone scene in Six Ages:

    A little about Kralorea and China

    BTW, if someone isn't a fan of the hopping vampires, because they're so goofy, I encourage you to watch "Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters" and the more recent "Rigor Mortis". Hopping vampires can be great.

    A little about Kralorea and China

    Yeah, I think so, or maybe the RuneQuest group. I tried to find it, but they post a lot. 😅

    A little about Kralorea and China

    It was mentioned in a big post on FB, listing all the books that are being worked on.
