Last thing I heard about him was being crushed by the Block.

That first, and then getting devoured in Hell.

I can't believe nobody else thought of naming the book that would be known as RuneQuest: Glorantha "ReQuest" instead.  Missed opportunity.

That's what you do after you blow the first quest.

No, that's the other Kilimanjaro.

Seriously, we have two Devils in the monomyth - Kajabor and Wakboth. One is the embodiment of entropy, the other one adds moral evil out of its parents' spite.

And the implosion of the Spike that released Kajabor occurred after the assault of Wakboth, which makes it very clear who left the lid open (AND "forgot" to flush).

While nobody can tell for certain, I think that the morally evil one was able to one-up the merely entropic one in their direct confrontation (mapped in Uz Lore, both editions of Troll Pak) and ended up being available for the Block to crush it while the entropically but not morally evil one ended up in Hell acting as his own sperm in fathering Time in perfectly normal arachnoid manner, just like Arachne Solara is volunteering herself to be consumed by her child.

Certain Tarantula mothers never get to see their near adult spawn. This of course opens debates among Gloranthan metaphysicists speculating about whether there is something new ripening while Glorantha goes down the entropy spiral, and speculating what that might be.

Is this a new game "Request, Advtures in Glortha"?

Perhaps Request is a politer version of the game? A Game of Manners in Glorantha.

"Excuse me, could you and your Broo kin kindly refrain from spreading the Shakes on our tula? We'd also appreciate you not molesting our cattle, and ceasing to sacrifice our children to Mallia".
