But assuming I am ignorant about the nature of a source like Arcane Lore, after 20 odd years of conversations about Glorantha, isn't that a bit condescending?
Sure. But as I said - I know you are working on the West, I've been following it as close as I'm able, and particularly noted that there have no signs you've been changing the Basmoli/Pendali much.
> As an aside, when a Western Source calls the Lion God of the Pendali "the Cannibal God" - that doesn't mean that the cult has anything to do with the Praxian Cannibal Cult or with ogres for that matter. Probably has a lot more to do with the fact that were-lions eat humans.
Sure, but in the sources there is a pretty clear implication that the Basmoli are using magic that is beyond their usual - they are making a point of threatening to destroy their enemies souls, not just bodies. Of course, the Basmoli could just be talking themselves up, but I see no reason to assume that. Why should the Basmoli only ever have one trick in their book?
