Hey all, while Rick is feverishly doing the layout of the Guide to Glorantha and Ian is putting the art list for The Coming Storm before I hack it apart, I’m working on a few other projects. Three are secret, and will be mentioned soon, but one is public knowledge: the Gods of Glorantha.
This book follows the structure of Belintar’s Book, and unifies Gloranthan mythology through a series of distinct and separate myths, which are periodically interrupted by in-depth descriptions of about 40 Glorantha cults. The idea is to present the mythology of Glorantha through the cults and arrange them, not by pantheon, but by thematic Age. So here they are:
Green Age: Korgatsu, Mostal, Ernalda, Aldrya, Eiritha
Likely Stretch Goals: Asrelia, Ty Kora Tek, Oria
Golden Age: Yelm, Lodril, Buserian, Malkion
Likely Stretch Goals: Daruda, Entekos
Storm Age: Humakt, Annhila, Orlanth, Magasta, Polaris, Daka Fal
Likely Stretch Goals: Shargash, Artmal, Oslira, Kabalt, Wachaza
Darkness Age: Kyger Litor, Argan Argar, Zorak Zoran, Yelmalio
Likely Stretch Goals: Babeester Gor, Maran Gor
Chaos Age: Unholy Trio, Ompalam, Storm Bull
Likely Stretch Goals: Seseine, Gark, Krarsht, Vivamort
Lightbringers Interlude: Issaries, Lhankhor Mhy, Chalana Arroy, Eurmal
Grey Age: Pamalt, Horned Man, Waha
Likely Stretch Goals: Kargzant, Telmor
Dawn Age: Heroes, Harmast, Nysalor, Arkat, Harmast (HeroQuesting and Illumination)
Second Age: God Learners and EWF (Experimental HeroQuesting and modern Malkionism)
Third Age: Godunya, Red Goddess, Seven Mothers, Hwarin Dalthippa, Hon-eel
Likely Stretch Goals: Dormal
I realize that this does not cover every cult people might be interested in. The East Isles and Pamaltela get short shrift, while Prax gets over-represented. But I am simply not up to writing another 600+ page book, and would like to get something with a more reasonable page count out!
As always, your thoughts are welcome!
