Jane Williams:

>On the Heroplane, only Mythic Law applies. Heroquesting consists of using

>Without someone deliberately concentrating on one set of laws or the
>other, which controls things, Mundane or Mythic? That depends on which is
>strongest. And that depends on who has been reenforcing each one. Mundane
>Law tends to win (Entropy being a part of Mundane Law!), but every act of
>magic or worship in Glorantha strengthens Mythic Law. And this is a very
>good thing. Take a look at Glorantha: it's a lozenge floating on an ocean,
>in the middle of a sphere or three. What do you think would happen if
>Mundane Law won, and Gravity noticed what was going on? That's why the
>Sacred Time ceremonies are so important. No matter what event they
>reenact, they reenforce Mythic Law. And without Mythic Law, Glorantha
>would not exist.
