Being a bit of a scraper and gatherer myself, I would generally agree with the above from the NON-business side of things also.

Glorantha needs writing, not trainspotting.

Also, when one considers how many radical changes have been made to Glorantha through HW, collating mucho material that's simply out of date might be a teensy bit pointless ...

   BUT : Much of Glorantha still needs fleshing out, *on the basis of existing materials*
that could certainly be developed further. And let's face it : only the fans have the will, the knowledge, and the development skills to do that.

Prax is certainly one of those areas !

Also, Glorantha isn't exactly what one might think of as a product of 'business sense' ... ;-)

So : Roll on PraxPak !!

cheers,

Julian Lord
