As this applies to all three ages:

I find it weird how the Pentans are shown on the maps as living only in a slender band in Pent, following the caravan route. Surely there aren't vast stretches of uninhabited grasslands to the north and south, only a lower population density? I refuse to believe that the grasslands of southern Pent are less populated than the Wastelands, which are described as Praxian!

I think it's striking how anti-cosmopolitan Glorantha seems at time. The First and Second councils seem doomed from the start. The Ban was just great for everyone not reliant on trade (you can build a utopia as long as you don't have foreigners around to muck things up), and the Closing seems to be mostly a Good Thing. Bad things come from attempts at multi-culturalism. All multi-national empires are corrupt. And let's not even get started on magical innovation inspired by contacts with other cultures, and magical systematizations derived from that!

Seems the Doraddi have it right – don't try anything new or foreign!
