E-GROUPS Thanks Loren for that thoughtful and illuminating explanation of the pros and
cons of E-groups. A couple of questions and musings...

Can an E-groups moderator configure the list so that digests/e-mails can be sent out only once every 24 hours, once a week, whatever? (I ask the first because I think the 'thoughtful pause' does enhance the signal to noise ratio of the Digest, the second because if a Gloranthan list were formed for say,
short story writing and discussion, then something like one digest a week would be optimal).

If we retain the major-domo option, there is still the option to create a GD website to provide some of the extras E-groups can provide. That task could be handled by a wider group of folk who are web proficient but don't have list maintainer skills. Or it may simply be that we put in a request for a Digest
page to Issaries, whose volunteer web builders are doing a fantastic job.

Containing what? Do we need an updated FAQ?, or a home for the old one? How about a common FAQ for all the Glorantha lists, detailing the split in subject areas and various addresses?

3D GLORANTHA On a related complete tangent, I'd be interested in hearing from any folk who do computer 3D figure/landscape modelling or illustration, and who might be interested in sharing tips and ideas on Gloranthan subjects and models, sharing runic props etc. After a longish hiatus, I've taken up computer modelling and illustration again using Rhino/Poser 3/Bryce 3D/Photoshop, and have spent the last few months completing a naturalistic Vingan warrior. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with similar interests.

His eyes like furnace doors ajar.

When he had got its weight
and let his industry console his grief a bit,  'I'll fight'
he said. Simple as that. 'I'll fight.'

And so Troy fell.
