REVIEW: Six Paths

Well-written and beautifully presented. Six Paths discusses gender, sex, and sexuality with nuance and care. What drew me most in this supplement is the integration of gender with the Orlanthi religion. Six Paths goes above-and-beyond other LGBT-advocacy publications by entwining its material with established lore of the setting. This is well-developed through a collection of … Continue reading REVIEW: Six Paths

MOTM Musings, and Recent Releases

Sylthi—Session Three

This weekend, we continued my RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha campaign exploring the city of Sylthi. Sylthi is a minor city in the matrifocal land of Esrolia.
