Even though my time currently is somewhat limited (I'm just slowly catching
up with about 40 digests) I'd like to repeat my announcement that anyone who
has a specific Glorantha lore question he or she wants answered with source
references and some info on the contents can e-mail me privately. A couple
of years ago I started to collect an encyclopedia for Glorantha, and while
it doesn't make much progress right now, I'm still happy to put all that
effort (thanks again to the people who helped me starting up) to some use.
