Glorantha in its Second Age is a world steeped in powerful magic. From the common incantations of the runes, to the reality-breaking spells of the God Learners and the warped mysticism of the Empire of Wyrm's Friends, magic permeates every layer of Gloranthan life.
The abuse of these mighty powers is accelerating Glorantha toward apocalypse, yet the two greatest culprits - the God Learners and the wyrmfriends - refuse to mitigate their acts of corruption and blind zealotry. Yet while they are ascendant, their magical prowess is without challenge.
Magic of Glorantha explores the most essential of these eldritch practices, providing detailed explanations and rules for Dragon Magic, God Learner Sorcery, and the mysteries of HeroQuesting. Additional information is also provided on the subtleties of wyrmfriend society, dragonspeaker cults, and the mechamagical enhancements of the Zistorites. Lastly, Magic of Glorantha provides character assassinations of the major Dragonspeakers and sorcerous lords of the Middle Sea Empire, including vital advice on how to deal with and serve these prodigious magicians.
