Nick replies to my questions:

I dont. Your reply gives me what I need to know.

Nothing *significant* in THE Glorantha, then?

Ok, thanks. Borderlands boxed set [sigh]...

Book of Drastic Resolutions 2, p59, bottom, says: "Lions have been
extinct in Prax and The Wastes since before Time began..."

That surprised me, but ok. Sun Dome sanctuary does not apply to Sun Dome
criminals. Seems like there might be another loophole in Sun Dome law
then - just convict anyone seeking sanctuary in the temple of something
or another, then you don't have to protect them anymore.
