Happy Sacred Time, Glorantha-philes!
Although the finished Volume One is not yet ready (we are still waiting on four pieces of art), we’ve got a 99.3% complete version available for our Kickstarter backers: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/224590870/the-guide-to-glorantha/posts/704273
If you see some errors (such as typos, strange formatting issues, or other obvious mistakes – but please not stylistic recommendations or requests for more information about something), please let us know on the forum thread – that way we can make those fixes while working on Volume Two.December 25, 2013 at 8:15 am #6521
Page 219: ‘The ocal farmers’ should be ‘The local farmers’.
[Cheating: noticed this whilst indexing last night.]
Only had time to skim through the PDF – looks beautiful/magnificent.
Merry Christmas to the Moon Design team.December 25, 2013 at 9:12 am #6522
p21: (map) Maslo Culture should cover perhaps Thinokos (a bit of Fonrit) and Kumanku
p47: (map) The Vadeli Isles are coloured western culture but none of the Jrusteli Isles are? Admittedly this falls in the too hard.
p124: (map) “Hyalorong” appears in the place of the more conventional Hyaloring (It may be deliberate, i’m just flagging it because it leapt out at me). Likewise Entruli are coloured light blue for Malkioni-Culture (Again I’m aware it could be deliberate) instead of Orangey for Orlanthi.
p125: (map) Pralori and Mraloti are coloured light blue for Malkioni instead of Gray for Hsunchen (Same caveat as above). “Mralani” appears in two places: Maniria and Teshnos. I think the Manirian mention is meant to be Vathmai or Harandings. Sish appears on the Fronelan Coast, whereas previous I had seen it used in Slontos (Sith now appears).
p130: (Map) the Teshnan nations of Inzagril and Amtal have switched places compared to previous maps. Here “Iznagrli” is the kingdom in what is now Matkondu while on previous maps its western Teshnos excluding Matkondu.
p132: (Map) The legend “????” appears in the place of Pithdaros. Also Dorastor is painted in a Heortling colour.December 25, 2013 at 9:45 am #6523
Please do not include anything that is not a scrivener’s error on this thread! A few comments:
p21. No. Thinkos and Kumanku are not really culturally Masloan. Their languages are distantly related, but they’ve been removed for a very very very long time.
p47. There aren’t enough Vadeli there to justify that.
p.125. Again, deliberate.
p. 130. Deliberate.
132. Good catch! That was a previous version that needed to be switched with the final!December 25, 2013 at 10:04 am #6524
Minor note: the box on page 158 (describing the picture on page 159). Under the header “Top Left Panel: the World of Forms”, the text mentions boxes. However, in the picture, what is described only contains circles.December 25, 2013 at 10:32 am #6526
Please report errata in this thread.
For impressions, new discoveries, and other comments concerning the preview of Vol. One of the Guide to Glorantha, please post in http://www.glorantha.com/forums/glorantha-group1/glorantha-discussions-forum1/discussion-of-vol-1-and-guide-to-glorantha-thread158/December 25, 2013 at 2:18 pm #6529
Well, it’s gorgeous. There will be more over in the other thread but two concerns:
A. In the table of contents, “Realms / of Glorantha” has fallen out onto two separate pp. 163 and “Chen Durel, the / Bliss of Ignorance” likewise sprawls across two pp. 286. Likely a multi-line suppression issue but nobody ever checks these so raising the point here.
B. Not seeing any Patron of the Arts / Draw This! information in this volume. I’m sure it’s a combination of my quick skim missing the attributions and the fact that all the fans opted for wacky stuff in Volume Two, but again, just sounding the horn.
Thanks guys. The world has been remade!December 25, 2013 at 2:22 pm #6530
A. That will get fixed with the final.
B.Patron of the Arts information will appear in its own section once the full selection of pictures are complete.December 25, 2013 at 3:29 pm #6535
I don’t know if it’s a mistake or a deliberate change, but Lodril is listed as having the Fire rune rather than the Earth rune on page 150.December 25, 2013 at 3:45 pm #6536
Table of contwnts looks a bit plain compared to fabulous standards of the rest of the book.
The contents in the toc for page 163 look split into too many lines.December 25, 2013 at 3:56 pm #6537
On page 117 the sidebar has: “aftershe” change this to: “after she”December 25, 2013 at 4:14 pm #6539
Horse Nomads and KoI are unlabeled in the 400 ST picture. KoI is labeled Chen Durel in 700 ST but KoI before and after. Hot Lake is labeled Hot Sea in 1100, and is unlabeled in all the other pictures.December 25, 2013 at 4:22 pm #6540
Text bleeds into picture box on p. 68.December 25, 2013 at 4:32 pm #6541
Roko Joko – thanks on the p. 68 catch (although it is already fixed). The others are a byproduct of accidentally using an earlier version of the historical maps (which we just caught after the pdf was made).December 25, 2013 at 7:50 pm #6544
Going to be unfortunately scattershot for the next few days — would you prefer drips or consolidated lists from each reader? Since there are probably a lot of readers.
The frieze on p. 234 (Lightbringer Return) has opened my eyes to all kinds of dangerous misreadings of Orlanthi religion. It’s one of the great revelations in this book. However, presumably Fig. 6 should have “breastS” unless some amazonian hardship is implied.
