AH8593 Strangers in Prax (1994)

This RuneQuest Glorantha supplement features three groups of enigmatic and powerful foreigners visiting the valley of the Zola Fe! Plotlines and scenarios let you cast these larger-than-life characters as patrons or antagonists in your own Praxian campaign.

The Lunar Coders – Count, Princess, Ex-Con, Tracker, Sorceror…

The Lunar Coders, five honored and feared agents of the Empire, speak with the authority of the Emperor. Even Governor Sor-Eel fears the scrutiny of these incorruptible warriors and wizards.

The Ancient Mariner – cursed by the Father of Monsters …

Pursued to Corflu by the titanic sea serpent that is his destiny, Barran the Monster Killer is both bane and salvation to the port town’s imperiled citizens.

The Man of the West – godless wizard, meldek, soul-eater…

Arlaten the Magus, a civilized sorceror in a barbarian land, is dreaded and scorned by the superstitious natives as an atheistic, soul-eating fiend.
