Currencies & XU etc.
Here I am. NOT lurking this time, instead commenting a little bit and
asking some questions as well.
All this discussion about illumination and related subjects is quite
interesting since I own the cult write-up of Nysalor/Gbaji. At first
it seemed rather obscure, but now, after having seen many of your
ideas about illumination, it has become a bit clearer, a bit more
illuminated to me. :-)
Questions and possible topics for further discussion:
- Currencies. Clacks, wheels, lunars and bolgs. I have a dim idea of the
usage of lunars, who uses them and how much (possibly the Lunar Empire
and the surrounding areas and not in very large quantities) and I
remember reading from some book or other that clacks were originally used
and developed by dwarwes. But what are these wheels? Who uses them and
how much? Any other uses for money in Glorantha than trade (religious?)?
Does anyone out there have some kind of currency rates? Again, I remember
reading from somewhere that bolgs are about one tenth of a lunar, but
correct me please, if I am wrong.
- Xiola Umbar and trollkin etc. There was a lengthy discussion on Chalana
Arroy on this digest a while ago. Trolls of Glorantha are
much more fascinating than trolls in many other fantasy worlds where they
are treated as stupid monsters and I would like to know more about them. How
would you Gloranthaphiles out there describe the role of XU in troll
societies? How about relationships between Kaarrg's Sons and Zorak Zoran?
What about the role of sorcery in troll society?
