        Ummm, what about the elves? The Genertela book on Crucible,etc says
that the aldryami plan to reforest most/all of Fronela via immense magics,
and that the strength of the elven armies increases in proportion. Tough as
the KoW may be, I don't see them beating elves inside one of their new forests.
The KoW had better have something like the Skyburn up their sleeves, or they
will lose quite a lot of territory in the blinking of an eye; and won't be

able to get it back.

        Ummm, sorry. As chairman of the Glorantha Con IV committee, I've
looked into event scheduling etc for RQ I & II, and LARPing is not a
majority function. More like 40%....
        BTW, I have had one of the RQ II organizers tell me that the
committee should rethink having two LARPs at GC IV, as it causes major
headaches for scheduling of auctions... (Don't worry, we plan to do
both LARPs advertised. I am just including this comment for illustrative
