That's a problem with Glorantha. It has a high learning curve. /// You don't need to take all of it at once - in fact it'll drive you crazy, which is called "becoming Illuminated" by many glorantha cultures, and ends up with the new illuminati being forced-march to the nearest pyre by an angry mob. Bad Things then happen to him.

Seriously, don't try to absorb all of it. Just think what kind of game you want to run : lots of flashy heroics or the everyday man struggling to survive ? Do you and your players like direct fighting and treasure-finding, or more social interactions and lots of politics ? Also, do you like lots of Magic or don't you mind ?

Once you know these answers, you can tell us and we'll be happy to suggest a few nice, simple scenarios to begin playing and enjoying it. And if you're bitten by the Glorantha bug, good ! One more of us. There's enough material around to play surprising, different game every week for years.
