I'm probably not going to use HQ rules. I've heard that Glorantha is a higher magic setting than like Harn. I've heard that Heortlings can fly on the battle field and shoot lighting bolts. I'm assuming that everyone cannot do such magical feats.

Hello Michael,

Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes has everything you'd need to know for running a campaign in Sartar, especially for new GMs. That is the specific purpose of the book, with loads of scenarios, encounters, cults; basically everything needed for play. While it is Heroquest rules oriented, Sartar: KoH is very rules light, probably more so than TR is.

We have a number of free downloadable pdfs of support material for it on our website:

Hope that helps,
