Re: Death Rune and creating undead
I reiterate that AFAIK 'zombies' in Glorantha are not chaotic.
The chaotic equivalent of a zombie is called a Ghoul (like the King of
The Ghouls persona of Sartar e.g.), screeching ability (or was it
wailing?), contagious, verbal, malignant and rotting as usual.
Zombies are not contagious, not verbal, not malignant in the Glorantha
I know. Neither are Draugr, I see.
BUT chaotic cults like Vivamort or Thanatar, who suck away and steal
the abilities of other cultists, know how to 'produce' ordinary zombies
even if the poor animated monsters are not chaotic in any way.
