Here's some more art we recently shared with the 13th Age in Glorantha Kickstarter backers.
Consulting our Thanatar Catechism, we're told that priests of Atyar are known as Horns. The acolyte of Atyar is by Rich Longmore. She's wielding at least one magic-blasting head, and will be accompanied by several spot-illo Thanatari heads!
Meanwhile, Storm Bull lowers his own horns to charge the horns of Chaos. This Eternal Battle rune by Kalin Kadiev will be in the Storm Bull berserker section of the classes chapter. Kalin is doing a bunch of other illuminated runes, most of which are appearing in the heroquest gifts section of chapter 3.
More art in future updates!
