The River Runs Red
It is the Year 1622. Last year, the Lunar Empire killed the gods Orlanth and Ernalda. The Red Emperor declared a year of celebration as, at last, they had triumphed over their immortal enemies.

The Great Winter swept across the land, starving many and forcing many others to resort to new allies and create new enemies.

At the same time, a cradle carrying a giant's babe was carried down the Zola Fel river. Despite gold spent and life lost, the Lunar forces sent there were unable to defeat its defenders and seize the cradle. This is not to happen again.

You are a group of Lunar settlers, granted a piece of land along the Cradle of Rivers. For some of you this may be a reward, for others a punishment. Whether you've been ordered, whether you're a slave or whether you're a freeman looking for a piece of land to call your own, you have what seems to be a simple task ahead of you: Make the river run red.

What is this?
This is a RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha game utilising the new RuneQuest rules. The game is taking place from the perspective of the Lunars who are, by most souls on Glorantha, viewed as a pretty damn evil empire who cavorts with Chaotic beings and is seeking to end the worship of anyone else across the whole world. The game will be text-based and will likely run 6pm GMT Wednesdays.

Info for Gloranthaphiles
In this Glorantha, the Grantlands were never truly settled by Lunar occupants. Everything south of Sun County is wild countryside. The timeline for this is shifted back a few years from the default starting date just to allow the players time to ramp up while the Hero Wars does.

P.S. Not sure this is the right place to post this but I couldn't find a LFG sub forum.
