I doubt it! MOB, and Shargash... not much overlap.

Same as the old one, I imagine. Or Brian would have told us it had changed. Try this:

FWIW (and in a semi-related way): if any of you have bookmarks for my website, please amend them to read ""; if you have my email in your address book, please amend it to "". I'm changing ISPs shortly and would hate to lose any of you in the old switcheroonie.

It's an urban legend spread by myself and Sandy -- deep within the Kingdom of War is a Banned-off area which could become the seed of the New Glorantha.

See, the KoW expands like ringworm, killing everything it contains. But it couldn't get to that one bit: an Edenlike  "Happy Valley" somewhere near its heart. And when your PCs get there, they have to live with the knowledge that *they* opened it up to the outside world; *they* are to blame if the forces of War make desolate and destroy this unspoiled land at its heart; *they* could have killed the last, best hope for Glorantha's future.

That's how it "defeats the KoW", BTW -- by surviving, and living, and growing, even at its heart.

Yur, but the earth moves for her. Frequently.
