_Strangers in Prax_, p. 36, in a section pink boxed section entitled
"The Horizon on a Flat World" it says:

    "The Gloranthan sea has no horizon, at least not the kind seen on
    earth. [...] Glorantha is flat, so it has no horizon. Between
    the sea and the sky is only an indeterminate hazy band."

Later it says that no matter how powerful, a Farsee could not see
Pamaltela from Genertela.
