This is fantastic stuff. I'm definitely going to pick up the other HW books I saw at the shop.

Mythology fascinates me. It seems to me that virtually every theme ever explored in prose, poetry, or games has roots in some mythology or another. I suspect that even Stafford's wonderful Goddess of Rape idea (as you describe--I haven't read the text yet) has a precursor in world mythology even if he has never read of it himself.

What I'm most fascinated with is the exploration of personal mythology. The stuff you grew up with that stuck in your head. If you wrote anything creative in high school take another look at it. I bet there are themes in there that echo something from your life history.

Now I'm derailing the thread. Oops.

God damn, I love Glorantha.

Thanks for a fascinating write-up, Ron.

Best,
