I agree. I think of Martin Laurie (whom I've never met) as looking like
Martin King, though intellectually I doubt it's true.

Believe me, if Ralzakark showed up and commanded me to do something, I
would have a hard time refusing.

(Or Maran Gor -- we had a small earthquake near Seattle last night, but it
was the largest one I've been in, and my adrenal glands definitely work.
Earthquakes would be an effective battle tactic for their fear value, as
well as just knocking people down and making cracks.)

Then the Humakti Sense Assassin would activate before a battle (during the
phase when the warriors drive their chariots around hurling insults, or
everyone moons the enemy, or the leader exhorts his troops). I don't think
this is the case.

They wouldn't. They'd leave that to women who aren't dedicated to fertility
and life.

I'm testing some new software, and would appreciate hearing if my
Gloranthan Cultures link (on <http://www.pensee.com/dunham/glorantha.html>)
works. I can tell people have been trying it, but I have heard from one
person that it fails to display the data.
