Thanks Pookie! I've really been looking forward to RuneQuest discussions with you.

The big take-away for me is how similar our experiences are in teaching "what's happening" through character creation. This is a relatively under-studied topic, I think. People don't learn RPGs (or even what role-playing "is") through texts, but through undergoing this exact step. I can hear the players' individual comprehensions and engagements shift, almost like the mechanical shifting of a manual transmission, in steps through this session.

The other topic I want to investigate is the cultural touchpoints: Celtic/Vikings against evil Romans, as you described it in the first few minutes of the session. If possible, I'd like to offer my entirely different habits of introducing those components (e.g., for a Dragon Pass game), but the intense and often fraught views of long-time Glorantha players typically turn that conversation into a blood bath. If you're OK with me bringing this up, for mutual interest not confrontation, let me know.
