The Pegasus Plateau
The adventurers are called to a holy festival of special games—and their mettle will be tested with the taming of a majestic hippogriff!
The Grey Crane
The adventurers find themselves in conflict with a legion of Lunar Tarsh soldiers who are in pursuit of a magical cloak once worn by the sacred defender of a remote village.
The Pegasus Plateau
A small remote town is menaced by a strange and terrible threat from a past age—an animated war chariot bent on carnage!
An unsolved murder and a lingering curse? Only the adventurers can free the village from the consequences of both.
The adventurers delve deep into a haunted forest—realm of the ghoul-king Brangbane and his monstrous kind.
The Ruin on the Stream
The adventurers have the opportunity to learn from an especially enigmatic teacher, so long as they can navigate an ancient and forgotten place in Glorantha.
The Pairing Stones
Upon the deserts of Prax, the adventurers must intervene when a wedding between the scions of two tribes goes horribly awry.

This is a handy collection of nifty adventures.
I love Glorantha and I was pretty disappointed with the material here. It’s great that Chaosium wants to give new authors opportunities to get published, but it really feels like the authors here weren’t very familiar with Glorantha—a lot of these scenarios feel very generic and lack the spark of Glorantha. The scenarios set in specific clans just treat them as generic fantasy ‘villages’, and the scenario at Pairing Stones barely describes the place—since when do Praxian tribes have “princesses”? Even the Pegasus Plateau scenario feels really bland, with no mythic resonance and a Winds ceremony that doesn’t connect to anything established about Storm tribe ideas about the winds. But the gazetteer for the Locaem tribe is nice. Overall, the weakest thing Chaosium has published in a very long time.
My group and I just finished the first adventure "The Pegasus Plateau" and we loved it! There are many good adventures in this book and it has also created seeds for many more adventures or things I could add to the current adventures in the book as my group plays through them. The quality and level of detail in this product is on par with the standard Chaosium sets - which is excellent - the book feels great in your hands and the pages are something special as well. The art is fantastic. The adventures will provide many hours of intriguing gameplay and I was extremely satisfied with this product.
This is a wonderful collection of pre-packaged adventures that can be used by anyone running a Sartarite or Heortland campaign. Grey Crane is probably my favorite and I really like what was done with Renekot's Hope. And while my campaign is in Colymar, it was good to see this happening outside that structure (yet not so far away that a Colymar campaign can't easily take advantage of it). I would have liked to have seen a lot more information on the Locaem, including more on each clan and a map of clan territories. It seems a missed opportunity to provide a needed alternative to new GMs that don't want to be in same old, same old Colymar.
Top quality collection of adventures and additional background material. Cannot rate this highly enough. Highly recommended!
There are several differing adventures. There is also general background information on the Dragon Pass area.
Good adventures, nice background detail and beautiful presentation.
