Nevermet Posted May 29, 2020 Report Share Posted May 29, 2020 This is a spin-off thread from the Non-Book Grimoires, and Caste thread. In short, the Third Eye Blue clan is a big, ugly knot. I don't have my Stafford Library books open right now (and I'm not bothering to at the moment for reasons that shall become apparent). So, I'm exclusively going off their presentation in the Sourcebook and Guide, the 2 "canonical" setting pieces for Glorantha right now. According to the Guide, The Third Eye Blue... Are sorcerous metal-workers Stole metalworking secrets from the Mostali Originally from the highlands of Tastolar in Fronela, which is still under the Ban Claim to once have had a great empire in Fronela Arguably the best bronze-workers in Genertela In addition to stealing Dwarven secrets, they also have enslaved Dwarves in Kitor, who are bound by ancient oaths to a god called Three-Eyes Piku And then, according to the the Glorantha Sourcebook, Syranthir "brought the Third Eye Blue cult of metal-smiths to Peloria" (P. 153). There's a few headaches in all of this. FIrst and foremost, I guess this means that the Stafford Library mentions of the Third Eye Blue. described as living in the Brass mountains since before the Dawn where they helped Daxdarius and fought both the Blue People and Bull People, no longer is considered factual history? maybe the Third Eye Blue settled in the Brass mountains and hybridized with a pre-existing group there? Also, the Guide also creates some headaches, because it isn't just about stealing knowledge from Mostali, but enslaving them. So, either Mostali were in the Brass Mountains, and enslaved before time, or Syranthir brought a coterie of Mostali thralls to Pelanda with him. And on the topic of stealing metal secrets, there is a town in Fronela according to the Guide there is a town called Enneserah where "The miners worship an underground god called Ganestos, who stole the secrets of the dwarves." ...ok. so.... um.... blargh.
