Simon Phipp - RuneQuest/D100/Glorantha - Cults

Cults are what make Glorantha stand out from other game worlds. They are the life blood of Glorantha. Each deity in Glorantha is worshipped in a slightly different way by slightly different people. Each deity of Glorantha provides special magic to its worshippers, depending on its powers and history. Some powers are common between several cults, some are loaned to other cults, others are unique to that cult, but all are linked to the deity concerned.

There are many deities in Glorantha, some might say too many. In the course of my campaigns, I have written up several cults for use in our games. I have also tried to convert the cults from Hero Wars and Hero Quest to RuneQuest format, as short form cults. Mongoose RuneQuest/Legend/RQ6 has a slightly different format for cults/divine Magic, but I have not converted these cults to that new format as I think the RQ3 format has not been bettered.
