The Hands of a Hero
Glorantha is not a planet, as is ours, but instead is a slightly bulging, squarish lozenge, like the shape of the Earth rune.
Glorantha floats upon Sramak’s River, the Primal Ocean that encircles the world. The Sky overhead is an off-center bowl rotating about the Pole Star that marks the center of the Sky, and is the only stable point in the celestial dome. Between the Earth and Fire/Sky is the turbulent realm of the Air gods, the gods our player characters are most identified with. Underneath both Earth and Water is the silent Underworld, ruled by Darkness.
Beneath the Sky and the Air, and sitting on top of the Earth, is the Middle World—the realm of mortals. It has a northern and southern continent, and many islands. Our game is set in Dragon Pass in the middle of the northern continent, Genertela, named after a long dead Earth god.
