Moon Rock


Recommended Posts

I have it like red pumice, but with a faint soft glow. Quite light, quite crumbly, but various shades of red. After all, it was made by someone gathering all the earth up, squeezing it a bit and them floating it into the air.

There doesn't appear to be any actual description of moon rock, only it's glow:

Gods of Glorantha (AH 1985) says


The glow of moon rocks waxes waxes and wanes with the the Red Goddess herself.

Personally I'd have it as variable as terrestrial rock and base it on its surface source as mapped in the in the Guide (Appendix I). These are just descriptive, however I've added some special effects if the rock has been collected by adventurers during a heroquest or you want cool Lunar artefacts. All add 1D6% to Moon rune in addition to other effects
