So as I learn about Glorantha from the tribe, I began to do an exercise and began building a clan. This folder contains the ramblings of my feverish mind, I present the piecemeal forming of The Glimmerstone Clan. Everything is a work in progress and I'd love advice. They've got a few unique things to them: The Koza/Koska (?) - They're Sheep, they act more like Goats(intelligent, curious, but have a strong sheep like herding instinct and are unique) The original group of Women were from clans broken or destoryed in Starbrow's Rebellion ins 1613. As a result the Women turned to Vinga and became Red Women, for nearly 3 years. in 1615 the Aranwyth granted them a small section of undesirable Tula, and the group made a small shanty-town. It was then the women began to realize that they were a clan, forged by their experiences. Some men, old and young come to work with the women. Pure Horse, folk, Lunar castaways, and Orlanthi all leaving together because survival outweighs their cultural grudges. Heler is invoked to hold the group together. 1618 - The Koza/Koska are Quested for by priestess of Nevala the Ewe, who had been with the women. 1625 - The land the people have been living on can no longer support their growing number of people, animals and land. The Earth Priestess Umeka calls on the Gods, to show them way. One of the girl's who has now reached Ten years old is used as a living conduit in an attempt to find Voria's Garden- a hopeful place for a new Tula, even if it is outside Dragon Pass. It's me mostly musing, but also wanting to try and do something distinctly differently. I am considering making their Tula outside Dragon Pass (I know strange), but a clan this small would stand no chance of holding their own or taking land from a bigger clan. In my head I see their Tula as 'Hidden', it's distinctly a place that has never seen humans before (or it's been a long long time). It's visually a cross between a alpine Austrian valley maybe. Rivers and lakes should feed it.. Or does one just literally make such a place up, and how does one find a place to put it in on the map? Are there Heroquests for Wyters and making Clans? (Its something I wanted to write about, but I think most of the things I have read only reference it.) I do want to write about hte Heroquest for the Koza- which in of itself would be New Quest Anyone want to point me in the right direction or guide me in coming up with how these things should be written?
Hello all, I've been wondering about the nature of the Sartarite clan structure, specifically how fluid the designation of Carl and Cottar is. I know Carls take on more responsibility and fight in the shield wall, but aside from that I'm not sure how one knows she is a Carl or cottar. Is it wealth based, where you just have to be rich enough to afford the equipment? Or is it caste-based, where even a poor Carl has greater standing than the wealthiest Cottar?
