Serandarn the Ironwood

Recommended Posts

"The future of Glorantha", the last chapter from the Glorantha book of HeroWars (2000), contains these lines :

Quote

The ALDRYAMI want their primal forest back. They long for the green leafy expanses and untrodden fields of the Green Age, before the mostali or uz devised ways to destroy the trees, and before human beings infested them. They have been saving Elf seeds for a long time now, and they are deciding where to plant them to raise an army. Expeditions have been sent from each of the Great Trees, and are trying to get to distant forests with strange parcels and secret messages. Serandarn the Ironwood, the greatest elf hero alive, marched from Teshnos across the desert to lead an army.

Never heard of this Serandarn guy before. Any other reference somewhere ? Nothing on Glorantha Wiki, nothing in the Guide...

That's probably it - something created at the time that has not been carried forward.

If you want it in your Glorantha, make it so.

You left out the last line... "Against whom?"

There's only one other reference I have of Serandarn (none in Greg's notes) in Shannon Appel's unpublished elf book. Which basically says he's a great elf hero. Given that the Great Elf plot of the Hero Wars doesn't really kick off until the 1640s, he may not even be born yet or cuts his teeth on heroquesting collecting seed. The Teshnos forest expansion happens around 1643. I suspect he's heading for the Battle of Dantolfol with super elf magics or to aid Sheng in eating the Red Emperor or both (and to plant some seeds surreptitiously).
