This was taken from a comment about my views on Glorantha.
The bit that excited me about it (Glorantha) was the Hero wars cosmic scale stuff (my memories of the following are a bit bad so forgive me). My character was a Narcissistic black horse troop lieutenant. He ended up being gay, which we decided was against the rules of the Orthodox Malkoni. No problem though, my characters reading of the sacred texts and understanding of the journey of Ethilrist made it clear to him that actually being gay wasn’t bad. In fact it was more holy. So he started a sub-cult where we had gay orgies in a place called the green room. Things escalated and he ended up having great power. I got to meet Malkon and was basically told that ‘no being gay is bad.’ So I ended up storming Solace with all the demon horses. I think I’d made all the demon horses gay members of my cult. Anyway it failed and I was cast into some kind of hell where I plotted my revenge.
I think that fulfilled any desire I had to play in Glorantha. I think doing another story on the cosmic level would feel too much the same and that’s the only level I’m interested in.
We used an unpublished system called melodrama but I don’t remember much about it (it was a bit similar to Heroquest) so I can’t contribute much in the way of system dicussion.
