Tradetalk # x and y

Tradetalk # X and Y (i will not longer give numbers until they are at the printer - 21/22 or 22/23 or ...) will be our "First Age" Specials.

We will try to show you another way to play HeroQuest, than in the Third Age Hero Wars period: The first Age, 20 years prior to the Gbaji Wars! The authors for this issue are Peter Metcalfe, Andre Jarosch, Greg Stafford and Shannon Applecline.

The current (planned) table of contents is:

- "First Age in general" will show the differences to the "now" of the Hero Wars period, and will give an overview of these two issues.

Then we have 9 "areas" to describe; all will describe the land, its personalities, history and future events, and also include new culture, occupational and magic keywords. Each region will have at least one map.

The regions are:
- "Loskalm", the beginning of the famous empire, the starting point for Talor.
- "Fronelan Hinterlands", will show the details of the Fronelan Lands outside of Loskalm. Including Talor action!
- "Seshneg & Tanisor" is about the Hrestoli of Seshnela, the Brithini of Arolanit, the Gbaji-Worshippers of Tanisor. The starting place of the world's greatest hero: Arkat!
- "Ralios", Nonhumans, Galanini, High Council missionaries, this area is the ground for the practice runs of Arkat.
- "Slontos & Maniria", Slontosian aristocrats, missionaries from the High Council, Krjalki
- "Dragon Pass", the Heortlings of Harmasts time, Lokamayadon followers, Trolls.
- "Dara Happa", the empire, with all its bureacrats.
- "High Council Lands, including Dorastor", Nysalorings, Ralzakark, Palangio action!
- We might include a chapter "Nonhumans" which details all the activities of the Aldryami, Mostali, Uz and Dragonewts, we might also include a chapter "Heroes", with Details of Talor, Arkat, Harmast, Nysalor, Palangio etc. BUT maybe we will shatter the information into pieces and but them into small boxes in the descriptions of the areas.

Because of space restrictions we will be NOT able to add an Aldryami or Non-Glorantha RPG article in any of this two issues!

The split between this two issues is planned to take place between the Ralios and Slontos chapters, so that we end up with "First Age in the West", and "First Age in the Center".

Take a look at our sales pages where you can order there a subscription of Tradetalk for five issues starting with this issue.
