    Sorry to witter on about Ompalam… but Loz’s 2nd Age write-up certainly fits the 3rd age info from ‘Revealed Mythologies’ better. You should have a look.

    I have had a look and had again 🙂 I will not use 2nd age material in my cult writeups. It is a personal choice I have made. It is not about better or worse.

    Revealed mythologies actually does not say too much about specifics for Ompalam.

    Adventures in Glorantha Take 4: Spirit Societies

    Adventures in Glorantha Preview brings us rich variety of spirits for shamans.

    Full list of spirit Societies have not been released yet for AiG – they will come later on in Chaosium Runequest but that is still far away in time. For the time being I have created as a fan contribution my view of the spirit societies in one pager format.

    Here are now 26 spirit societies made from Runes usually associated with those. This is how I view them. This is a first cut. This should help those few who have the preview but also any others as most of the spirits are available in RQ6. Only some neutral spirits are mentioned here. None of the spirit magic is mentioned on this round.

    Format is now somewhat different as we do not have acolytes anymore in AiG.

    The original one-pagers will still be available in their location. The new ones will be in Aig directory and have in small print on upper right corner “Aig Preview version”. I expect I need to tune these still – so I added print date and time info on bottom of the page.

    This of course meant that I need to change later on the stats in RQ6 Encounter Generator as the spirit society members there have been so far my interpretation of RQ6 Glorantha without Aig. The spirit societies that have been changed are still my interpretations of the AiG as they are based on the Preview and the rules are not fully complete yet. Like noted in my first look at Adventures in Glorantha elder races are not yet described in AiG Preview. I remain in gratitude that I got permission at GenCon to do this upgrade to the Gloranthan Cult One-pagers under the normal Fan Policy.

    Feedback is welcome.

    I will likely not be updating the original one pagers but will be working on this AIG preview version until Chaosium Runequest comes out – I will likely update the one pagers at that time for it as well.

    So we have the Glorantha One Pagers for Spirit Societies in AiG

    Spirit societies that exist now are

    -Aldrya
    -Bagog
    -Blackfang
    -Daka Fal
    -Dark Eater
    -Eiritha
    -Foundchild
    -Golden Bow
    -Horned Man
    -Hungry Ghosts
    -Jokotu
    -Kolating
    -Kyger Litor
    -Mallia
    -Oakfed
    -Odayla
    -Pamalt
    -Rasout
    -Stormbull
    -Thed
    -Waha
    -Zola Fel
    -Zong

    Hsunchen societies here are

    -Telmor
    -Pujaleg
    -Basmol

    The Hsunchen, Pamalt and the hunter gods (Ragout, Odayla, Zong, Foundchild) still have their theistic side as well. At least for Hsunchen it should fade away in the future – so for these cults it would be good to use only the spirit society side. Others would probably stay as a mix of theistic (rune magic) and animistic cults & spirit societies.
