So much for us getting accused of "lack of realism"

Recommended Posts

So much for us getting accused of "lack of realism", just because Greg Stafford's World of Glorantha really is the flat top of a floating cube, under a sky that's an actual dome...:P

The mythic quality of Glorantha's physics is the best reason to shut down "realism" experts. I love it.

But I write poetry for fun, so there you are.

The bridges of Kralorela kind of remind me of the roads of New Orleans...

I still am not entirely convinced New Orleans isn't a fictional place, and these maps are not helping in convincing me otherwise :P

The answer to most of those inexplicable civil engineering choices is "corruption and/or nepotism in government contracts."  Louisiana is a symphony of graft. Why build something simple and adequate when your cousin's crew can get paid to do it the long way (or, classically speaking, the Long way)?
