Hey folks, just heard about the project. Very exciting! Is there another part of Glorantha that might make a nice introductory location other than Dragon Pass? I know it’s the traditional setting for a new Glorantha book, but surely there are other parts of the world that would blossom with a little attention and focus?August 13, 2014 at 7:44 am #10403
A fleshed out Loskalm campaign would be wonderful. Or something in Palmatela.August 13, 2014 at 9:34 am #10407
Dragon Pass is the main focus for the Hero Wars. Argrath eventually takes down the Moon from there. However on a practical note, now that the Guide is out perhaps some writers will want to work on other areas. The main writer at the moment is Jeff and he’ll be wrapped up in the Gods Book for probably the next year. So writers, contact Moon Design and develop those new campaigns.August 13, 2014 at 10:34 am #10410

I think the Holy Country would be a great place for introducing Glorantha. You have a range of diverse cultures showing different beliefs from around Genertela, rising conflict from both the Lunar invasion and the death of Belintar, lots of monsters to fight and ruins to explore. You can easily run the traditional RPG party (a group of adventurers from different cultures meet up in a tavern), or have everyone be part of one culture and focus on those conflicts.
Loskalm would be good too, and I’d love nothing more than to see Fonrit be developed more.August 13, 2014 at 11:53 am #10413
Regardless of which setting is used in 13th Age, with the Guide to Glorantha you should have no problem in picking your setting. The Holy Country is also one of the settings in HerqQuest Glorantha (along with Sartar, Prax, and Tarsh). I’m pretty sure most of the material will be useful regardless of game engine.
(I’m Currently playing 13th Age in the Dark Suns campaign background. Our GM has converted it over with no problems. So I’m assuming the same with Glorantha).August 14, 2014 at 3:50 am #10422

13th Age should be effortless once the book comes out. However, it’s quite difficult to run Glorantha in HeroQuest at the moment, simply because there’s so much so many areas of the setting need to be playable. I’m trying to prep a game about trolls on the Shadow Plateau, and it’s definitely the most prep I’ve had to do for any game.
I’m expecting the gods book to make that easier when it comes out, though.August 14, 2014 at 9:57 pm #10430
I’m with you.. while I love there being other new (and popular) system choices being added to Glorantha, I’d love to see the other directions of the Lozenge fleshed out more.August 17, 2014 at 11:12 pm #10457
Hey guys, coming to this fresh, just got excited by the news of the 13th Age / Glorantha partnership. I’m not familiar with all the Gloranthan material. David Scott talks about Agrath taking down the Moon. What is that tale told?August 18, 2014 at 7:39 pm #10480August 19, 2014 at 3:53 am #10487
Oh, I once owned the old King of Sartar, but never read it.
