To which i commented:

And Stephen replied:
>Yes, I am, and No, it would not be.

Stephen, you've been inhaling too much of that moondust. Something is
always better than nothing. Some of us are trying to play a campaign; i'd
rather have an updated, available version, no matter how un-Greg it is,
rather than having to put up with the obsolete and silly version in Cults
of Prax, a very OOP book.

So just because Greg is undecided, i'll have to wait for Lhankor knows how
long and be HAPPY that Tales didn't include an unofficial and incorrect
write-up? Go eat a grenade, Stephen.

So you mean we should wait for the picture to become clearer until anything
can be written? What happens when (when, not if) Greg Gregs THAT picture?
If we take your attitude we will never see anything non-greg published
again about Glorantha.

Stephen, the important thing isn't to be correct but playable. Glorantha is
a game-world; there is NO generally available write-up of the 7M, and you
want us who have campaigns to patiently wait until Greg gets his head
together and writes one? Have another grenade.
