Wonderful series for gamers of all levels of Gloranthan knowledge

I’m new to Glorantha. I knew about Runequest during the 80s (Avalon Hill period), and was a devotee of Chaosium’s other games (Call of Cthulhu, Stormbringer), but my peer gaming group was primarily focused on Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1st edition), with occasional forays into Traveller (“You haven’t lived until you’ve died… during character creation!”) and other TSR game lines popular at the time (Star Frontiers, Gangbusters, Boothill, et. al.) and Call of Cthulhu. Therefore, my only exposure to Runequest, and Glorantha, was via occasional reviews of the products in gaming magazines such as Dragon, and looking that the products on shelves in my friendly local game store(s). Unfortunately, the price for AH Runequest products was not agreeable with my teenaged budget, so I wasn’t able to truly experience the glory of Glorantha during that time. Now that I’m older, I’m able to invest in products such as the substantial Guide to Glorantha, and the revised and updated King of Sartar. So it’s with welcome pleasure that I can listen to this podcast to fill in the immense gaps in my Gloranthan knowledge. The hosts are friendly and welcoming to gamers of all backgrounds and knowledge whether olde school Runequest grognards or recent converts such as myself with exposure to narrative RPGs such as Heroquest. Hosts Jeff and MOB have interviewed Gloranthan luminaries and present interesting perspectives on the history of this rich setting throughout it’s publication history along with new resources such as the King of Dragon Pass tablet game, and the online comic series Prince of Sartar. On a few occasions, their conversation gets deep into Gloranthan mythology and cultures and I’m a bit lost, but they do a good job of trying to explain the details so that one can get a general understanding of what they’re discussing. An example is when they talked about tribal areas around Dragon Pass and reference previously published materials and what occurred during specific Gloranthan calendar dates. Overall, this is a totally rad podcast for gamers, whether you have a passing interest in Glorantha via the Heroquest Glorantha rulebook, or are a seasoned veteran who started your Gloranthan journey playing the classic fantasy boardgames White Bear & Red Moon.
