Really? Given that (as a necessity) everyone who reads this list is at least able to cope with use of yahoogroups, I'm not at all surprised that a move to replace/supplant it is of concern to at least some of the readership. When the replacement is not able to provide (m)any of the basic functions of the mailing list it is even less surprising.

> What is it you want out of these forums lists?

Somewhere that it is easy to keep up to date with discussion, (official or otherwise) on all matters Gloranthan (and/or Heroquest) that doesn't involve paging back and forth through an on-line forum trying to determine what messages are new since I last visited.

>Why are you unable to talk about what you want about Glorantha?

I'm not. But use of forums rather than mailing lists makes it much harder for me to read what other people are talking about

>Are you children scarred of what your parents might say?
I have no children, and my Mum thinks it's all "D&D" anyway

I'm not currently playing or running a Gloranthan game (although I may be running a Sartar campaign later in the year). I don't have the Pavis book yet as I'm waiting to be able to support both Moon Design and my FLGS.

If I had any expertise or skills to offer, I would do so. I suggested earlier that if they want to host an in depth archive of Gloranthan discussion then they should look at hosting/linking the Gloranthan Archive at - Again I don't know how that was produced, but bringing it (and keeping it) up to date would seem to me to solve a lot of the issues peole have with tracking down "old" discussions.

I would have liked to have been able to get there to see it. I do wonder if the interest it generated is why my photo of a Morokanth Chariot ( had a spike of views over the weekend...
