Alexandre Lanciani:

>Once I'd have liked to add a character in my campaign who embodied the
>dichotomy death/sex but I was stopped from doing so by runic determinism: if
>Uleria personifies Love and Love is the expression of Fertility and
>Fertility is opposed to Death and Death is expressed (also) by War, how
>would such a character come to term with her two natures?

Since both Yelm and the Seven Mothers have the life/death runes,
the death/sex dichotomy is not impossible in Glorantha.

>And if indeed Uleria is not eligible, what mythical background could such a
>character have?

Tolat (described in the Player's Book: Genertela) as having features
of Uleria and Humakt.
