    Sea/Ocean Gods and Goddesses

    This is my current understanding of all the known, and perhaps unknown, entities we mere mortals call “Ocean/Sea Gods”. Perhaps we can together fill in the gaps? Subject to change as knowledge expands. This message is not about the Water Tribe per se, but specifically about only deities of Seas and Oceans. References to parents or children that are not Seas or Oceans are not included in this report, with a few exceptions. I am happy to correct my understanding. In proper Water Tribe fashion, though, the parentage and offspring list is somewhat mutable. Any help is appreciated to more fully understand. Format Key is - Name/Sphere of Influence if any noted - Parentage and Children The Four Great Oceans are…… Hudaro Homeward/Benara Eastern -do we have a proper name? Togaro The Hudaro family Hudaro/Ice - parent of Neleom, Banthe, Kerenth, Kenirya Neleom/Cold - child of Hudaro Banthe/unknown - child of Hudaro and Manthi and Natea - parent of Denestlazam Kerenth/Sea Plants - child of Hudaro and Murthdrya - parent of Swermela, Jorkar, Dashomo Kenirya/Sea Storm?/Squall? - child of Hudaro and Umath? Dashomo/unknown - child of Kerenth - parent of Marthino Jorkar/unknown - child of Kerenth Swermela/unknown -child of Kerenth Denestlazam/unknown - child of Banthe The Benara Family Homeward/Benara/Psychopomp - child of All Waters - no offspring noted - aka Magasta/Magasta’s Pool The Eastern Ocean Family Eastern/Warmth? - creation unknown - parent of Menterina, Kahar, Venperha, Alsporanjabbi, Kostarankarjahobbi, FreshWater Sea, Valararriano, Alsporanjabbi/unknown - child of Eastern Ocean Valararriano/unknown - child of Eastern Ocean FreshWater Sea/unknown - child of Eastern Ocean - is proper name known? Venperha/unknown - child of Eastern Ocean Kahar/Fog - child of Eastern Ocean, Sshorg, Iphara Menterina/unknown - child of Eastern Ocean The Togaro Family Togaro/Terror - parent of Sshorg, Serelazam Serelazam/unknown - child of Togaro - parent of Maslo, Dinosso, Marthino Sshorg/unknown - child of Togaro - parent of Bezarngay, Sedlezam Maslo/unknown - child of Serelazam - no children noted Dinosso/unknown - child of Serelazam - parent of Marthino Marthino/unknown - child of Dashomo, Dinosso, Serelazam Bezarngay/unknown - child of Sshorgh, Seden - no children noted Sedleza/unknown - child of Sshorgh - parent of Rozgal, Solkath Seden/unknown - child of Sshorgh - parent of Bezarngay Rozgal/unknown - child of Sedlezam - no children noted Solkath/unknown - child of Sedlezam - no children noted I see “Seluro” is perhaps a lost sea, but can find no other info - also need some help with Loral.

    27 Tribes of Prax, I think.......

    Well, it is true the Basmoli are in poor shape in the Age of Time. Back in the day though, in my own wacky Glorantha, I imagine a lion-riding tribe, that one may find to this very day while visiting the Other Side. And perhaps the grumpy One-Humps were indeed a Trickster prank involving Genert, while the lusty Two-Humps were a combined Uleria/Boggle plot as hinted at in Anaxial's Roster.

    Altinae and/or Tilntae - a brief mention

    My source for this is a brief Stafford unpublished manuscript with little or no detail, it being the same source for the other Tilntae/Altinae. Please send any info you have for the newly (for me) discovered Ifttala and Pendal please.

    Altinae and/or Tilntae - a brief mention

    Joerg, I go non-digital and record all info on blank index cards the same size as Magic/playing cards. So far the index is about 20 inches tall. Right now I am only recording names of known entities, sphere of influence, parents if any , and offspring if any. I also include an AKA note, to keep the index relatively easy to use. I am once again actively updating after a number of years offline so to speak. When this phase is complete I will add other info but that is in the future, this phase being simply identifying as many deities as possible, be they canon or not. I am happy to receive info filling in blank areas in my index.

    Altinae and/or Tilntae - a brief mention

    Thanks Joerg for your help. I have removed the Tilntae lable from Rathora in my index. Is The Lady of the Veil a title for Eleria?

    Triolini - a list of known entities

    Thanks Joerg for the info. I continue to add and update info in my fairly comprehensive collection. I am using some old, unpublished sources, as well as printed material supplemented by online fan material to gather as much intelligence as I can. With help someday my index will be complete perhaps. To be clear are you claiming that all Triolini are living physical entities that dwell in the waters, like a merman or fish, as opposed to animated waters like currents and seas? I am not disagreeing with you, but simply seek an understanding.

    This is my current understanding of all the known, and perhaps unknown, entities we mere mortals call “Kolati”. Perhaps we can together fill in the gaps?

    Triolini - a list of known entities

    This is my current understanding of all the known, and perhaps unknown, entities we mere mortals call “Triolini”. Perhaps we can together fill in the gaps? Subject to change as knowledge expands, and presented in no particular order. I am unclear if offspring of a Triolini are such themselves. For example, I see no documentation that King Undine himself is a Triolini, though he certainly may be. Any thoughts?

    Thank you David, for the Camel Clarification. My files are updated.

    27 Tribes of Prax, I think.......

    Once long ago, on the Plains of Prax and the Wastes, large herds of lion-riding barbarians hunted and raided their unfortunate neighbors perhaps.

    27 Tribes of Prax, I think.......

    My version of Glorantha contains 27 unique herd animals associated with Prax and/or the Wastes. Your Glorantha probably is different, but if not, we must blame Trickster. I welcome any thoughts on the matter, but please, be gentle. Many of these animals are extant, some only remembered, and others we no longer consider. Some are better, some lesser, and a few are quite different. Of course, this much interpretation, lazy memory, moderate modification, and wild speculation yields imperfect results, and this list is probably imperfect, and for that we must blame Trickster. They are offered below in no particular order. Subject to change as knowledge increases. Extant - the "now", of most Gloranthan settings. Rhino Horse Unicorn Zebra Antelope Bolo Lizard Ostritch High Llama Morocanth - they keep Herd-Men, and thus are unique Impala Sable Bison Donkey - herd beast of the Cannibal Cult it seems Bird Lizard - probably same as Bolo Lizard, but different in my Glorantha Lion - lions, and other Basmoli, are no longer herd beasts in my Glorantha Animals remembered only in the “now”, but we have some information, be it true or otherwise. Subject to change as knowledge increases. Camel - associated with a Trickster prank involving Genert if I recall correctly Eight-Legs - big spiders and an Uz tribe I assume, and Humans perhaps…… Plains Elk - known to be true, we think. Nose-Horn - it seems the “real” name if forgotten. Or is it? Long -Ears - see above Long-Nose - see above Horn-Nose - see above Antler-Head - see above Rib-Hide - see above Some herd animals are no longer known, and even their names are gone. In my Glorantha, I declare the remaining Praxian herd animals that once existed, and that might be encountered in the Other Side. Subject to change as knowledge increases. Cow - they are relatively common in Genertela I gather, and Uralda lives nearby. Pig - see above, different goddess Buffalo - of course little, but bigger, brother to Bison, and apparently not as stout
