Description Edit | History

Mythic sourcebook for Glorantha compiled by Greg Stafford. Originally distributed by Wizards' Attic as WA8802.

Publisher's Blurb:
The foundation document for modern Dara Happa, written by Plentonius the Scribe in the Dara Happan year of 111,221 (221 S.T.) to commemorate the accession of Khordavu the Exalted, the 26th emperor of the land. It sets forth the basic mythology of Yelm and his pantheon from the beginning of Time, through the Great Darkness of the Kazkurtum, to the return of Antirius and Yelm. It also includes The Perfect Sky and The Gods Wall, two important sources for information on the deities of the Dara Happan Pantheon.

The Foundation Document of Dara Happa

This is a translation of the manuscript copy kept in the Temple of Yelm in Alkoth. The copy was made circa 111260 YS by an anonymous court scribe of the Emperor of Dara Happa. Thus it is not precisely Plentonius' "original work," but a copy made 40 years later.

A later copyist added the marginal glosses, shown herein as footnotes. In bad editorial form, some of them are actually by me, the Author, not the Gloranthan Copyist. The original had no maps, but for clarity these were added by me, Greg.

Plentonius

Plentonius was a famous scribe in the court of Khordavu. He was most famous in his time for his description of the Gods Wall (one version contained in Appendix A herein) and for his dating system, which has remained in use in Dara Happa and most of Peloria ever since. It is used in this manuscript too, and provides the primary evidence that Plentonius was the author of this work too. Note that in the text Plentonius is not named as the author, who admits only to being Keeper of the Letters, a high-ranking scribe at court. A later source first linked this work with the name of Plentonius. Later sources ascribed supernatural powers to him, and he receives sacrifices in the temple of Arraz.

This is a Pre-Finished Works title, a non-professional compilation of the notes of Greg Stafford, creator of Glorantha. Thus, it is recommended for the hardcore Gloranthaphile, but not for the newcomer or casual fan. It is not professionally laid-out, illustrated, or bound.

user comment
the 2007 versions are only 90 pages long, as the publisher changed the font and the font size.
The artwork is the same, but it is smaller too.
There is a new version with more changes planned for (maybe) 2014.
