      It strikes me that the new game could be titled "Glorantha 2000".

     Well, what I want is something that will handle both the virtually
magic-less sheepherders and the magic-mastering Heroes, and that can handle

both a world where the gods are little more than stories that invoke magic
and where the gods are true and real entities. Something that can handle all
the various Glorantha gaming philosophies, something that can be used by
everybody on the list, and by the neophyte gamers.

      And then I want world peace and universal prosperity. :)
