Well, this might be true in your Glorantha, but we know for a fact that
in 'official' Glorantha Aldryami are plants, not mamals. They are
planted in the earth as seeds and are 'born' as young adults out of a
fleshy fruit-like pod.

On the psychology front Sandy petersen - on eof the authors of Trollpak
- - has said that, in Freudian terms, Trolls only have an id. They have no

ego or superego. That's a lot more than a minor mind-set difference.

I'm sorry Sregio, but your basic assumptions, on which all of your
arguments are based, are only true in your own Glorantha.
