Dear Joerg:

Excuse me, I am currently busy for schedule.....

I find another interesting topic, conflict of YGWV and GAG, but I want to remain this topic at least for now.

In RW, it might be, but in Glorantha, phenomenon isn't always similar to that of RW. Magic controls culture. Orlanthi is turbulent coherently.

Maybe Grizzly Peak for Stravuli is good example.

Thank you for the information, I will put it to my note on next chance, but I am still not sure why its name isn't appeared as one of Summer / Winter / Star tribes and suddenly appeared as one of Heort's tribes.

Greg might change his mind again if he read this thread...:-) You are right about Liornvuli (for latest Greg told so in DPG), but Forosil (Founder of Forosil-) was husband of Ornore Koroldottir (Jeff Richard).

I know it.

I can't understand what you mean? Did you tell me about Christ's birth in a stable? Or his parents fled to Egypt?

Sorry, I forgot to replace my older note (it was mostly written before reading DPG), see again here.

Yeah, I know my assumption based on very simplified status as far as I can expect, and I have had it for territories of Mythic Age Clans and tribes, like Hurt Everything Clan or Mark on the Barks Clan, Death is Life clan etc..... maybe new tradetalk issues of 1st Age will tell us something...?

Do you mean Ilias = Ialos? I can't believe it.
