I believe that while RW scientific method is applicable to Glorantha, the
conclusions that such science would reach would be different. Also, while
good RW scientific discoveries such as Newton's laws stood the test of time
well and only break down at the quantum and relativistic extremes,
Gloranthan scientific laws would be much less versatile. The principles of
science, though, would be much the same as RW.
