On Redeemed Broo

Also uh some of those gotta be female Broo. I know Malia is the go-to when Thed says "you have tits, get out" but Ralzakark wants those CA healers.

In other places, female Broo have the smelly end of the stick, as they cannot worship Thed.

However, in Dorastor, there are many other deities they can worship.

In my Dorastor, Ralzakark protects female Broo and encourages them to join cults such as Chalana Arroy and Lunar cults such as the Seven Mothers and Etyries. They can also join the Humakti Sword Broo of the Broo Legion.

So, there are many chances for female Broo to shine in the enlightened utopia of Dorastor.

Are there any other known broo who've overcome their condition the way the Cleansed One has?  There's a discussion active on the RuneQuest board as a right this that mentioned a broo having the capacity, if not the motivation or self-control usually, to worship Chalana Arroy.  Are there any known broo in Glorantha who've done such a thing?  Does anyone have thoughts on methods a broo might take to purify themselves as the Cleansed One has?

Surely broos who lack the chaos taint are just satyrs?  *chuckle*  Imma gonna post that on "your dumbest theories" now 😄.

According to King of Sartar satyrs are deermen (page 86 in the Revised and Annotated). Sartar - Kingdom of Heroes describes their lower parts as deer like.

As an aside, Cults of Terror states that Illumination "...rids the chaotic being of the hatred which rules their lives."

Thinking has somewhat changed regarding Illumination over the years, because in the 2018 Gods of Glorantha Gencon preview, Illumination is now a skill, and allows the Illuminant to ignore the behavior checks required of characters who have a Rune over 80%. So, a Broo with 90% in the Chaos rune who is also an Illuminant can make an Illumination skill check to ignore the Chaos impulse to ruin, destroy and commit perversion. Illumination can be just as liberating for Broo as it can be for Humans. This hasn't been officially published yet and YGWV, but it seems to track with the Lore.
