Julian Lord says :

>Myths may sometimes "mutate" spontaneously.

The mythic landscape does change because no cult's myths and heroquests
exist in isolation. If one culture's heroquest connects with another's
and the other culture undergoes a serious change then the changes in the
mythic landscape will have noticeable repercussions.

Major heroquesting can have effects that are Glorantha-wide. The birth
of the Red Goddess is one such example. Just becasue you don't know why
the heroplane has changed doesn't mean there isn't a good resason for
it.
