This site is migrating to a new home. Pages are transitioning over to:
A resource for exploring Greg Stafford’s Glorantha
We are proud to announce that Glorantha has returned home to Chaosium. And specifically, our store has moved over there.
All your PDF downloads will still available – just contact Chaosium customer support if you need them.
Come explore Glorantha – a Bronze Age world where mythology comes to life and adventure is only a step away.
Glorantha is in many ways similar to our own world, but exists in a magical universe where the laws of physics are subordinate to the whims of the gods and spirits. To understand Glorantha, you must leave our mundane world and enter the world of myth. The Sun is a living god, and not a nearby star. Countless gods exist, some even more powerful than the Sun, and all have the power to directly affect humanity. Rulers and leaders use magical rather than technological means to achieve their ends, and even the humblest of persons will cross the paths of the gods and spirits.
“Fantasy is not so much a suspension of disbelief as it is an acceptance of our own unconsciousness. Fantasy is as old as man, beginning back in our animal history when someone had the first abstract thought. In our Western society, empirical data and rational thought have become the touchstones of experience. This is worse than cutting off half your body. The fantastic is easily half of the universe, whether you count galaxies and nucleotides or court a demon in a pentacle.”
