Yes. yes, yes!! I am really happy you pointed this gem out to me!!! As I prefer my own RQ-like ruleset I once condemned this - misjudged of course! - rules-only book to the shelf. Now I can only recommend this wealthy _Gloranthan_ tome to anybody, independent of rules system.

Oh, this is completely up to the player, and I do not expect to know much more myself, before some weeks time. I need to teach him the alternatives, give him some time to think and work it out with him. My group are eager players, but poor (if not to say unwilling) sages of Glorantha. Only I insist at least on a stable background to hopefully seed some more interest...

See above. Not all hope is gone, but at least I _expect_ him to be dubious adventurous, mischievous even, as he was taught bad manners on how he had been treated by others. (But his stats say, he probably can hide this quite well.) His nobility he could only inherit from his Dara Hapan background, but he despises those since too long...
