Want this as a poster thanks
The Guide to Glorantha and the Argan Argar Atlas have arrived in physical form. They are huge, they are full of wonderful maps and illustrations, and the attention to detail throughout is astounding. Notice the quarter, which gives an indicator of the size, if not the weight.
Alas! It costs almost the price of the books to have them shipped here! *cries*
The dragonewts are one of the non-human Elder Races – the eldest, according to them. They are enigmatic in the extreme. They subscribe to the views of draconic mysticism, which holds that all existence is an illusion. They hope to one day surmount and overcome the illusions of reality by rejoining the spirit of Ouroboros. This is a process that happens over many lifetimes – literal lifetimes, since the dragonewt must commit the ritual suicide of utuma to move onto the next stage of their spiritual development.
Looking through the latest in-progress version of the Guide to Glorantha, I am reminded that while as a backer I’ve been impatient at times, it is far better that the Moon Design team do this the right way, rather than the expedient way.
The maps, the text, the illustrations – all of it are astounding. When they ship the final product, it’s going to knock people’s socks off.
