Re: Hi, I see there is an upcoming WW book
> IIRC, it didn't so much run out of steam as pause out of courtesy to Jeff, who said he was about to produce some Heortling history that would impact WW. That then turned into an exercise in "screw the suckers for every penny they've got and take as long about it as possible", rather than "get interesting infomation to your fellow creators as efficiently as possible", not to mention apparently not even attempting to stay consistent with existing Glorantha, and we rather wished we'd skipped the courtesy: but by the time we realised what was happening, most of the energy here had been switched to other projects. Well, I'm still writing in Whitewall, and trying to make sure anything I produce fits the background here and is of use in a generally useful setting, but I don't think anyone else is.
Normally I don't like to quote so much and would rather paraphrase things, but I want to be very careful that I am not misquoting or misrepresenting what Jane has said.
In short, the History of the Heortling People's book did not screw anyone out of any money, pennies or otherwise. It was priced universally at a standard rate, both in paper and as a PDF. It was also published in a fairly timely fashion, especially compared to many other projects, which have suffered greater delays. The price of the book is basically in line with every other unfinished work, and based on the page count per penny it is actually a better deal than several others. As for Jane's views on whether it is "interesting" or "consistent" with other Gloranthan material, I will go back to the age old maxim "YGMV". Every unfinished work is what it is, and none of them have been anything other than different to existing RQ, HW, or HQ material to a greater or lesser extent.
