Overview and Links of Pamaltela

Sorry, this page is still under construction and some of texts are unavailable for Original Authors don't permit me to reveal in public. If you want to know more about the subject, search more Glorantha Digest Archive in Bryan Kondalski's site and / or send me an e-mail.



First, I should recognize the aspects of Fantasy World, (if it is required,
read Greg Stafford's psychological movement, though very dangerous. to do
so.) Gameable World and Actual World, for example, if you want to use the
continent as a place of temporal visit for your campaign as wolf pirates or
so, you might make your Pamaltela to odd and bizarre, weird as much as
possible as Sinbad or Galliver. (I remember Sandy Petersen was the designer
of CoC.....) On the contrary, if you want to makeup longish campaign only
gamed on there, you might want to make this place as comfortable or exciting
for all of life place. Simon Bray or David Dunham might want to do so.

Second, if someone want only symmetrical beauty and harmony of the whole
complete Glorantha, as Peter Metcalph and Joerg Baumgartner do for Fonrit
(though I love both of their works, Joerg might not "love enough" Fonrit as
Simon), I cannot discern their effort is fruitful or not in the future,
because if only minority want to stay Pamaltela long as a player character,
an unified World View has a possibility to damage the each of creativity of
each narrators (or gamemasters) as my poor attempt to makeup overview of
Arkatism in Second Age.

Third, HW and HQ Rule System should not be ignored, even if a sort of like
TI's foolishness urge others to ignore that.....history only knows who is
Trickster.....(I think) See KODP and the Saraska's Tragedy (Comedy?)

Sandy Petersen's Note in RQ Con Compendium #4. It is very important for deep
understanding of (exploring) and exploitation of this area. Nick Brooke
taught me the parallel change of rule systems in RW game circumstance and
development of the South Continent. And there is always Peter Metcalph. His
Glorantha ITHW and Greg Stafford's RM and ML.
