How can you introduce your players to Glorantha? We provide practical advice and personal experiences on how to get into the setting, and how to present it.
We mention the prevalence of magic and gods in Glorantha, offer suggestions for limiting the choice of cults with new players, and explain how people can learn the setting as they play. We also suggest limiting character knowledge by playing inexperienced characters, or a band of trollkins or ducks.
Two threads on BRP Central which inspired our discussion:
