So one can get the trademark, and one can get the rules, but "some assembly required".

I have no idea what it All Means, though. A 'BRP/Glorantha' would require Issaries and Chaosium to both green-light it; a "Runequest Glorantha" with 'BRP'(RQ3...) rules would require the same, and also dodging the flak from Hasbro, who might be that much more upset about that combination, than either separately.
