  1. Discussion in the Women in Glorantha thread reminded me of something I wrote for my first RuneQuest campaign a few years ago. I honestly don't remember what it was in-game that prompted me to write it, but I recall quite well the real-world situation that inspired it. It was early autumn, and my area was caught under a mass of rainstorms with no end in sight. The weather just settled down over the region and hunkered, pouring rain straight down. Every declivity in the land flooded, rivers broke their banks, and though I honestly like a rainstorm conditions really did start to wear on me as they stretched on and on. I was playing an Orlanthi shaman in RQ:G at the time, and the real-world conditions got me thinking about what a 'bad storm,' in the evil, wicked or false sense of the term, might mean to an Orlanthi. I also simply like Shargash (whom I call by the proper Theyalan name, Jagrekriand, in the text), and the Waertagi, and wanted to write a story where Orlanth interacts with both. Finally, I wanted to explore a part of Ernalda's life that is rarely touched upon in detail by Orlanthi myth, her time at Yelm's court as one of his underappreciated concubines. The format of the myth itself and its prefacing text are based on an old write-up of the Hill of Gold that my group used earlier in the campaign. Though originally composed for a RQ:G game, it is mechanically agnostic. Now, without further ado,
  2. Dear lazyweb; I'm trying to recall the location of an outline of a myth/parable about the "follow chosen leaders" value. My best recollection is that it's not given in full narrative form, but is just described in the abstract. The outline of the outline (as it were) is roughly on the lines that a named protagonist can't decide on "a thing right and wrong" (or some such phrase), and asks a series of people (also named, or at least identified by relationship with him) who give him veeringly contradictory advice. The resolution is course that he has to decide which of these are "chosen leaders", and follows the "obvious compromise" between what those people told him. Ring any bells with anyone?
