Rest assured, it's *all* in Questlines II, a sweeping family saga by Jane
Williams, charmingly illustrated by Mark Baldwin in his endearingly
offensive and yet authentically Gloranthan style. It's also got a great
scenario hooks section at the end so you can inveigle your PCs into the
plot! This and 94 more pages of undiluted Gloranthan gold is available from
your local Reaching Moon Megacorp distributor.

And Nils said, of Greg's HeroQuest seminar:

>I haven't got a copy of Questlines II so i don't know what Greg said.

Then don't delay, order QL II now!

One the highlights of the con was Greg Stafford's address, which you'll also
find in Questlines II!. Outside, and surrounded by a golden dusk, Greg
recounted for the first time the full story of the many incarnations of the
Red Goddess. Her dismemberment, descent, illumination ('Life is suffering,
but suffering is not life') and gradual reascent is a beautiful and moving
story, partially inspired by the Sumerian myth of Inanna. Over sixty
attenders sat spellbound and speechless while Stafford spoke, and one of my
fellow organisers John Hughes was said to have almost converted to the Lunar
Way during the address, but ultimately saw sense!

Cheers,

MOB

   Thanics can suck the very words from the page itself, simply by
   running a finger along the lines and reciting an abominable
   ritual, though I am yet to see evidence of this. So concludes
   my dissertation, "The Secrets of the Severed God". I can now
   rest, assured that the fruit of a lifetime's research is safely
   transcribed and can be used by my bearded bretheren to confound
   vile Thanatar's continued presence in the scheme of being!

      *A note by Theodopulous Pandarus: Shortly after completing
       this, his 300,000 word master-work (which now fills the
       whole of Book XXIX, Subsection V), Gorget and his research
       student Kiva disappeared on a cataloging expedition in
       our temple's commodious underground archives.
