They also appear on the older Hero Wars cover, though on that they are still waiting to fight.

Aside from saying an Orlanthi Wind Lord and a Lunar priestess, I don't believe they are ever identified.

According to the gallery on the old Glorantha site, the figures on those books were Orlanth and the Red Goddess.

For those who can't remember Lee Moyer's work:

Given what we now know they are just two heroes.

as they've clearly not enough arms.

My question is how does that electric sword work, just looks ineffective.

The quality of the image isn't the thing (I don't remember anyone thinking it was Glorantha to them.)

But some friends of mine were talking about the cover and we realized we didn't know exactly what it was supposed to portray.

David, do you know who is portrayed on the Hero Wars/HeroQuest covers?

No. This is one of those pictures that has nothing to do with Glorantha. Lee Moyers has produced loads of cool art, this just reeks of poor art direction. If the words were missing it could be a piece of fantasy art that would easily be usable alongside the other work that Lee has done on 13th Age.
