Description Edit | History

A fanzine companion publication covering the Uz (Trolls) in Glorantha. Some of the material is drawn from material left out or cut from existing publications. Provides rich material on many aspects of the game world. An Issaries, Inc approved product.

Back Cover:
Welcome to the Book of Drastic Resolutions, yet another fanzine dedicated to the world of Glorantha. Inside you will find five cults and fifteen cult outlines, plus notes on eight published cults. Articles on the geography, culture, philosophy, and mythology of several Uz lands are supplemented by stats for seven NPCs, twenty-five creatures, eighteen magical plunder items, and over seventy-five new spells and skills, most of which have never been published before. Short fiction, information on the morocanth, and several excerpts from The Gloranthan Encyclopedia by Greg Stafford round out the contents of this book. A must have for anyone who loves (or hates) trolls.
