Hello all, I'm a long time dabbler in things Gloranthan but more recently have started getting into it properly via HeroQuest. I've been toying around with a character idea but I'm not sure how plausible it is so I was hoping to get some wisdom from the more experieced!
Basically are there any such things as 'civilized' Spirit Talkers and Shaman? By civilized I don't mean in terms of morality but just in the sense of coming from an urban, cosmopolitan background like Esrolia. I understand that those cultures are overwhelmingly theistic and that men and women with the Spirit Rune are going to be uncommon, but could an individual born to say a family of merchants in Nochet find a way to use Spirit Magic without abandoning his cultural identity or upbringing? Would he have to take up a wandering life in the wilderness permanently forsaking the luxuries of the city?
