I find it odd that Arachne Solara, the most powerful Goddess of this age, a Goddess worshipped by the Beast Folk of Dragon Pass.  One who is influential in the Lunar empire and elsewhere.  The Ruler of this entire Age of Glorantha,   Not a word.  Not a peep in anything that's ever been published.  Nuttin.  Nada.  Zilch.

yeah, I know, but I made up some pretty good ones for my campaign, such as Twist Fate and shapechange into spider.  And of course, a FateCatcher Net which select worshippers can build.  But it's all in house stuff.  I wish they'd actually make a cult write up.

Try looking at the Servants of the Wild in Masters of Luck and Death (pages 62-63) I think you will discover that these folk use the Wild Temple as part of their worship of "The White Spider" who is of course a manifestation of Arachne Solara

I think this is an important concept with Glorantha. Just because an entity exists doesn't mean it has to return magic and has a cult. Sure you can direct worship towards it as a cohesive group, but you don't have to get anything in return. A number of these beings exist: Earthmaker and the Horned Man are two. You don't get anything back unless you make personal contact. I think if you can transcend the otherworlds of Glorantha you might be able to meet these beings, but just getting their attention is going to be difficult,

I have one small correction for Rick Meints' otherwise excellent and exhaustive list...

(334.5) River Horse   Borderlands (page 41)

I wouldn't have even noticed if it weren't for celestial hippos

LOL, didn't see that, but I'm glad I was wrong.  I never expected to see "The Cult of" as a prefix in a list of cults, but it is correct, as entered in Borderlands.

Has anyone compiled a list of what gods and spirit societies are detailed in which HeroQuest books?

Yes.

All of such lists are woefully incomplete ...

Here's my main "slows me down" problem. How much "detail" does there have to be for a cult/spirit society to be worthy of inclusion on the list?

My Hero Wars Cult Conversion List contains references to where the cults appeared. I don't know how complete it is, but I thought I had stripped everything from the sources listed.

The sources were:

  • Barbarian Adventures:Sartar Rising
  • HeroWars Roleplaying in Glorantha Rulebook
  • Imperial Lunar Handbook 1 - The Lunar Empire
  • Legacy of Pavis
  • Tales of the Reaching Moon
  • Thunder Rebels
  • Storm Tribe - The Cults of Sartar
  • In Wintertop's Shadow
  • Imperial Lunar Handbook 2
  • Blood Over Gold
  • Men of the Sea
  • Champions of the Reaching Moon
  • Orlanth is Dead
  • Barbarian Adventures
  • Sons of Kargzant
  • Gathering Thunder
  • Masters of Luck and Death
  • Thieves' Arm
  • Wintertop Fair
  • Tarsh in Flames

Moon Rites

Good point. We only got "longform" cult writeups in the RQ2 days. Depending on where someone draws the line, they could easily exclude most of all of the RQ3 cult writeups, ditto the  HQ ones.

The fundamental problem though is that true exhaustiveness is an impossible -- for no matter how confusingly Hero Wars/HeroQuest 1 went into the detail of subcults, that detail was itself pretty incomplete, and furthermore, even those books did not detail every minor Orlanthi/Sartarite cult that there is. And the other pantheons & religions have been officially described with far less detail.
