I do not feel that "creative exclusivity" is an accurate phrase for describing the current situation. Glorantha is an evolving thing and Jeff has shown he is willing to both work with others as well as work more independently. He is not deaf to feedback or input provided that a collegial atmosphere is maintained. That said, it is unrealistic to try and take every personal creative effort on a subject and try to incorporate all of that material. I have found that every project headed towards publication sticks to the spirit of concept use on a frequent basis. I also do not feel that material is disregarded with prejudice. Not incorporating and reconciling everything is not the same as "rewriting with prejudice or malice", which has never been the intent. Yes, it is obvious that some things do get rewritten, for a variety of reasons. My advice would be to seek out where Jeff sees the Whitewall material progressing and what he sees it including, and then offering assistance in a constructive manner. Just saying "use everything that we already have and don't change anything without detailed debate and consultation" seldom will lead to a finished product.
