I was reading thru my copy of Tradetalk 12 which is a special on Heortland. In there there's an article on 'The Esvulari: Children of St Aeol' by Mark Galeotti and Greg Stafford with a nod to Joerg. One of the many items that piqued my interest were the sigils they used for Worlath (Orlanth), St Ehilm (i think that's Yelmalio), etc. They are basically Orlanth's rune, Yelmalio's rune, etc, in a triangle. The cover picture for the article shows the Fire/Sky rune in a triangle. Then in the article body it mentions Orlanth's rune in a triangle... these appear to be the saints runes they use. Does anyone know if this is how it is now? (Great article by the way.) Then do the Esvulari have tribes or do they mainly or more so associate with cities? I think the Bandori are an Esvualri tribe, right? Oh, and was there a Heroquest book that focused on the Esvulari? At the end of the article in mentions a forthcoming HQ book that reflects Esvulari views. (i couldnt find one). (And thank you to all that have helped enlighten me in this area of Glorantha. My RQG campaign will be centered here and i have just about all i need because of you, thank you, Gil)
I read the very helpful HQ Voices-Esvular that talks about an Esvular village on the coastal flats below Viziel. It talks about the village of Beauchief and the population being about half Orlanthi/Hendriki and half Esvulari. Well, i'm familiar with the Orlanthi family and clan structure but not the Esvulari. HQVoices-Esvular mentions the Esvular village leader is a knight who owes fealty to the count of Viziel who in turn owes fealty to the Earl's conclave. From other readings and posts, i gather the knights are more like cataphracts. But what i dont know is, how is, with all the great RQG that has come out, how is the Esvulari government or structure like? Are their still knights, dukes, counts and earls... and these report up to the annual talar councils at Mt Passant? (mainly looking at 1625 but any info is great). Oh, and bishops are called Watchers? (my guess is, now that some silt may have settled and development done, more info may be at hand... and thank you in advance)
