  1. So, we know that crossing a Tula’s border will have the interlopers confronted by fyrd members patrolling sooner or later and if all is well the sojourners will be taken back to someone in authority and the hospitality “challenge” begins. All things being equal, a good result will get some form of “hospitality” even if only the right to continue travelling. What happens at gates to a hill fort, be it small or large. When one comes to a city how do the guards greet you? When one comes to the “so-called” rural inns, okay bronze age B&B scams.. what is the policy. How do steads differ gr
  2. I was quite suprised to find this a few days ago while wandering on Lulu.com ... Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes (2009) Sartar Companion (2010) That's great, but of course it is also quite puzzling. Why isn't it mentioned on the Chaosium page for the PDF of each of these products? Why aren't these also available in hardcover? Why Lulu & why not (also?) DTRPG? Will Pavis: Gateway to Adventure (2012) also be available as it is also out-of-print? What about HeroQuest: Core Rules (2009) later on?
  3. This popped into my head so I thought I would ask it here. Why don't the Lunar Empire just send a group of soldiers to each clan during the high holy days of Orlanth and Ernalda? They then could prevent the worship of these gods. This is probably easier said than done. I'm sure I'm missing something.

  5. So I’m drawing up a map covering a 10x10 km area around Two Sisters. Exactly how close to the Upland Marsh is Two Sisters? Spitting distance? Kind of swampy? Or clearly outside of it? Also looking for suggestions as to what else should be nearby. How close is Old Top? Thanks!
  6. Hi all. I'm in the process of getting ready to run a Glorantha game using RQ Classic rules (so many fond memories), and after browsing through the old HeroQuest books I've decided I'm mostly going to be limiting my players to the Heortling-controlled areas of Sartar as described in Thunder Rebels. While I'm impressed by just how much background information is given in this and the associated books, I'm still having trouble picturing the layout of a 'typical' Heortling Stead. Can anybody point me in the direction of some suitable maps/plans/layouts for a Heortling Stead, or recommend
  7. Semi-oldie but goldie: here's my review of Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes. Do you agree with it? https://elruneblog.blogspot.com/2020/03/sartar-kingdom-of-heroes.html 😋👍
  8. The Aranwyth lost their great herd of cloudsheep [S:KoH 231]. But what if this tribe still has them? I looked some facts up: The best description of the cloudsheeps are in The Book of Heortling Mythology [p 49-51]. The cloudsheep are the Urothings, seems like the real sheep, and the Urothtrorol, which are more like rams. I've checked Anaxial's Roster and read the description of the Urothtrorol [AR, p 198-199]. Couple of questions: - are the cloudsheep of the Aranwyth only a herd of Urothings or are the herd a mixture of Urothings and Urothtrorol? In the AR-description are the mentioned
  9. Hi ALl, I'm a relative newcomer to Glorantha, having discovered it first via King of Dragon Pass, and then going on a HeroQuest buying binge a while back. However, I'm increasingly intrigued by RQG and its somewhat "heavier," approach to the setting. I'm wondering if there's any equivalent to the Sartar clan questionnaire in preparation for RQ? If not, maybe something fan-made could be produced? I don't quite know how RQG plans to handle clans, aside from the obvious "Sacred time," rules in Previous Adventures and so forth. Any thoug
  10. 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?
  11. I'm going to be running a game set in Sartar/Dragon Pass soon. The PCs are going to be the young adult children of members of the clan ring/prominent thanes who get tasked by the ring to be kind of problem solvers in an attempt to make a name for themselves and make them worthy of inheriting their parents prominence.The way I'm currently thinking about doing prep is taking the Dragon Pass board game map (available via google image search), noting where the PCs clan tula is, figuring out where the other clans/tribes are, stocking some hexes they are likely to go through using the Ruins & Re
  12. What are the clans of the Dinacoli? From the Coming Storm we have the Rain Blossom, Black Fox, Emerald Sword and Vanstach. A Glorantha Digest post from 1999 mentions these: Boarhead, Brown Boar, Donalf, Emerald Sword, Fox & Rain Blossom. I'm interested to know what the clans are northwest of those listed in The Coming Storm, particularly those in the areas of Blue Boar Fort, Herongreen and Chalk Man Vale.
  13. In Sartar Rising Part 1, Barbarian Adventures (november 2001) theres was an interesting list of prophesies from the Priestess of Kev. Has any of them come true or better yet, did you find an interesting way to use them in your game? From a secret hearth on the north-western borderlands of the Cinsina, forty-nine Vingans are dispatched to the clans of Sartar, each to seek men and women of courage. Commanded by an exiled queen, they draw strength from the new secrets of an old myth. In the hills above Whitewall, three exhausted men and a maid of spears together swear an oath
  14. "Lunar authorities believe the inns to be dens of sedition, but for the most part leave them alone as a sop to the conquered nation, although they did destroy one inn in 1618 ST" Do we know which Geo's in was destroyed, or any of the events?
  15. On p.55 of Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes an information box is displayed containing the entry No. 9,807 of the Jonstown Compendium. This entry lists several treasures, which according to the text are "kept by one of the famous old clans of the Colymar tribe". Which tribe is it? According to Sartar Rising Vol. 3: Gathering Thunder Orane's Spindle is owned by the Orlmarth clan. Does this mean, that all the other treasure listed in the entry of the Jonstown Compendium are also kept by the Orlmarth clan? The fact that the Orlmarth clan has a strong connection to Orane (e.g. Orane's Loom is a
  16. Composition of the Sartar Free Army A large portion of Sartar’s army consists of mercenaries and outlanders, with only the core drawn from Sartarite tribes and City Rings. Brotherhood of Death Sartarite Eaglebrown Warlocks Sartarite Earth Twins Tarshite Egglord Warlocks Hendriki Eleven Lights Sartarite Free Philosophers
  17. Do we have the units and number of tropps involved on each side for Battle of Iceland/Battle of the Auroch Hills: http://toronto.eventful.com/events/battle-iceland-glorantha-miniatures-combat-/E0-001-004988531-1 http://glorantha.wikia.com/wiki/Battle_of_Iceland http://www.deviantart.com/art/Battle-of-the-Auroch-Hills-531534577 I'm about to embark on the fool's mission of setting it up with 10mm figures as well as building a scale model of the battleground.
  18. Some folks have picked up The Coming Storm, some have not. I wanted to create a thread where folks could ask questions, either about what they are reading or about whether they should buy. First of all, let me capture the answer to a few common questions: Why is this in two books? There are a number of pragmatic reasons: it would be cheaper to ship and the first volume would be completed faster, and could be interleaved more easily with other priorities as a result. In addition there is a natural divide between the two volumes. The Coming Storm (Red Cow Book I) is the setti
  19. So I am soon to begin a new campaign of RuneQuest, reffing for my two best friends and girlfriend. They are all fairly green players so I am very much looking forward to introducing them to the wonders of Glorantha. I'm planning to set them in Sartar, near Starfire Ridge just after the initial, but not complete domination, of Sartar by the Lunars as Orlanthi that get embroiled in rebellion. It's looking like I'm getting two Babeestor Ghor initiates (played by the two most brutal women in my life, fittingly) and un-confirmed on the other friend but probably an Orlanthi warrior. My ini
  20. The latest issue (No.4) of The Hanging Garden is 100% devoted to Glorantha. It contains a sandbox-style description of the city of Swenstown, along with an introductory scenario (the one I ran at THE KRAKEN in October). Available here: http://2ndage.blogspot.com/p/the-hanging-garden.html
