From Original Call for Players

Heroic barbarians. End of the world. Mythic quests. That sort of thing.

The setting is one of RPGs' oldest. But I want to concentrate on theme -- the interaction of a community with its mythology -- and not on the details of the setting. So, newbies are more than welcome.

Here is my spiel from the call for players:

"Play heroic barbarian clan-members fighting off a mighty empire at the end of the world. The heroes and heroines must walk with their gods and even challenge their own founding myths to meet the challenges of the Hero Wars.

Glorantha is one of the most interesting and conflict-rich fantasy setting in gaming. In it, characters interact personally with the gods and spirits, and can venture to the realm of myth to remake their world."

Session one will be dedicated to sketching the origin myth of our clan and creating characters with ties to that mythology.

Heck, if you just want to come and help me generate a clan and some NPCs, please do so.
