Stafford Library

Welcome to Greg Stafford’s Glorantha


Come explore Glorantha – a Bronze Age world where mythology comes to life and adventure is only a step away.

Glorantha is in many ways similar to our own world, but exists in a magical universe where the laws of physics are subordinate to the whims of the gods and spirits. To understand Glorantha, you must leave our mundane world and enter the world of myth. The Sun is a living god, and not a nearby star. Countless gods exist, some even more powerful than the Sun, and all have the power to directly affect humanity. Rulers and leaders use magical rather than technological means to achieve their ends, and even the humblest of persons will cross the paths of the gods and spirits.

The home of the role-playing games RuneQuest and HeroQuest, board games like White Bear and Red Moon, novels like King of Sartar, the webcomic Prince of Sartar and computer games, it has been loved by its fans for 50 years.

The Stafford Library

The Stafford Library is for both roleplayers and Gloranthan scholars. These are Greg’s writings untainted by a specific gaming system. Some have excellent background materials, and others detail the mythic underpinning. If you want to see the original writings that lead to the development of our favorite gaming world, look no further. We sell PDFs for the Stafford Library, but if you want them printed, please visit our Lulu store.
