Description Edit | History

From the publisher's site:

This is our flagship product as Moon Design Publications launches the 3rd Age of Glorantha. The huge success of our Kickstarter forced us to break it into two hardcover books. And when you get it, you get both books. It details all the major places in Glorantha, all the cultures. That’s everything you need to run a campaign in any part of the world!

This the sister product to the Argan Argar Atlas. You will want both.

The Guide to Glorantha is coming as soon as our Mostali craftsmen can complete it.

Publisher's Book Description

Coming in at a collective 800 pages and 12 pounds, the two volumes of the Guide to Glorantha (which are 10- by 12-inch full-color hardcover books) are a complete encyclopedia of Glorantha. Cosmology, culture, geography, history, mythology, people, and places are all explored in never-before-published detail. Hundreds of maps and illustrations bring the setting to life.

The Guide to Glorantha is more than just a roleplaying game supplement and is not written for any particular role-playing game rules system.

Contents include:

  • The major human cultures of Glorantha
  • The Elder Races
  • Mythos and History
  • The Major Pantheons
  • Comprehensive and detailed information on all the lands of Genertela, Pamaltela, and the islands of Glorantha, including color maps, population and political maps, and descriptions of every human settlement of more than 1,000 people
  • Constellations and planets of Glorantha
  • Weather systems
  • Detailed information on the Red Moon
  • Information on the Hero Wars

...and much, much more.

Glorantha is one of the oldest and most influential fantasy role-playing settings, and has cast its spell far outside just tabletop role-playing games. The discovery of Greg Stafford, who has accumulated that universe's myths, legends, and other lore since 1966, Glorantha has been the setting for several role-playing game systems, including RuneQuest and HeroQuest, and is the setting for the award-winning computer game King of Dragon Pass and for the classic fantasy war game White Bear & Red Moon (also known as Dragon Pass).

Although games and stories set in Glorantha have been in publication since 1975, until now the setting has never been fully detailed in all its glory. Now with the Guide to Glorantha you can explore this classic fantasy setting as never before.

User notes

The two volumes of the Guide are continuously paginated: Volume I contains pp. 1–400 and Volume II contains pp. 401–800. (It was originally intended to be a single volume, but was broken into two parts as the required page count increased.)

The physical books are oversized (10-inch × 12-inch × 2-inch) hardcover volumes bound in faux leather and printed in full color: each volume weighs approximately 6.5 pounds.
