Jeff recently posted about the Sun Dome of Sartar: ‘With a dome approximately 30 meters in diameter, the Sun Dome Temple stands some 45 meters high, making it larger than the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. It is comparable in size to the ziggurat of Ur or Pantheon of Rome.’ Now I’m not an architect or archaeologist, but I like to find how things work, and a dome of that size can only be built in a number of ways.

I tried to transfer it to the main Glorantha-forum, alas was unable to.
Gloranthans - Players arrive in the vicinity of the Sun Dome around twilight; Yelmalio's sacred time. From the dome, a masculine chorus chants the evening song; it is a somewhat melancholy chant, about duty, honor, and all those things so precious to Yelmalians.

In some areas, it is then followed by a female song, praising the starts (Yelorna's chant). The chant is done a cappella.
