Worth noting the Glorantha Forum over at the Tavern, which I’ve added to the links section in the sidebar. In comparison to the official forums/G+ community its a lot more laid back and focused on the detail of the setting.
I’m declaring it the Unofficial Forum of Hearts in Glorantha, mainly because I hang out there and occasionally start up a thread or two.

So as a European backer of the Guide I’m waiting on a transatlantic boat to dock in Germany, while fellow Gloranthafans in the US and even oft forgot New Zealand and Australia excitedly post pictures of their copies. ITS NOT FAIR I TELL YOU 😀
At least I have the pdf copies to hug while I wait 🙂
Another thing that has been delayed is the HeroQuest Glorantha rule-set, but fortunately as a high end backer i have an artless draft (review of which is soon).
There is a silver lining to all this is that because I have the pdfs I’m using it as an opportunity to tidy up Red Sun Rising (the much delayed Gloranthan Adventures #2) so it is in line with the Guide and the new HeroQuest Glorantha. So if you are Glorantha curious or an old hand whose only played in Dragon Pass you’ll be up and going playing Sword and Sandal adventures in the Lunar Heartlands in no time at all 🙂
A long navel gazing post over at my Old School blog about my journey through various editions of RuneQuest.
… Or flying over the Atlantic or being man handled by a full fulfilment clerk. Mine is not the place to know such things, after waiting this long I’m not stressing any further.
HOWEVER i do have final pdf copies of both volumes of the Guide and the Argan Argar Atlas (can you see the gentle pun they’ve pulled there) which is a collection of all the full size maps in a single book.
Fingers xed the physical books arrive before my holiday in Pendragon country (The Cotswolds) 🙂
A quick teaser post from me @d101games re: Hearts in Glorantha/Gloranthan Adventures. After a long period of inactivity I’ve been reviewing work soon to be published and commissioning new art from Peter Town (Mythic Russia/Book of Glorious Joy). Expect a fuller less cryptic post soon 🙂
Good chat with Jeff Richard (Creative Director of Moon Designs Publications, who own the rights to and publish Glorantha) yesterday about the state of Glorantha , with some revelations of upcoming stuff that along side the Guide, means that for me the excitement is coming back after a three year hiatus. If nothing else it means I can put to bed the stuff I’ve been working on and off for the last 5 years or so (ten in some cases eck!) with honour and dignity, in a form that will be playable by newcomers for years to come. I’m not going to reveal details, that’s for Jeff to do when the time is right, but I was very happy that there’s a definite plan, with upcoming deliverables, that will make Glorantha an accessible and gameable setting very very soon 🙂 (which given the sometimes glacial development process Glorantha historically takes, really surprised me).
