Ahh, okay. Are there any supplements for RQG which include locales other than the Dragon Pass? Or for time periods other than 1625

Beyond Prax and Dragon Pass, Glorantha's been described more in fan publications than  official Chaosium products.  Not Canon, AIUI, but quite a lot of it written by people like MOB, Nick Brooke, Jeff Richard, Sandy Petersen, and Greg Stafford. The best current example would be A Rough Guide to Glamour (the Lunar Empire's capital city). 

If you're willing to go back to RQ 3 and hunt among the 'zines, yes, there's wild and wonderful material on places far from Dragon Pass.  Tradetalk used to devote every second issue to some odd corner of the Gloranthan Lozenge. Back in the 90s, Tales of the Reaching Moon produced some meaty issues on Pamaltela and the West, but you might have a long search to find them.

Oh wow, only just saw this...

 

Thank you very much for the additional resources, I will try to look into everything eventually:)

And now with @soltakss addition for the Jonstown Compendium, we now have a couple resources for Dorastor and Talastar in print: the new Secrets of Dorastor, and the old Cults of Terror (with the lovely Reminiscences of Paulus Longvale).

He really means it. Here's a snippet from Wyrm Footnotes 10 (available in PDF), a very early Chaosium magazine dealing with RuneQuest and Glorantha. Note the year of the planned release for the Heroquest rules :)

 

The year before I started FRPing
