Maps and Diagrams by Greg Stafford.

Compilation of myths, stories and colorful background for the Hero Wars. This is useful as a source book for the Hero Wars game as well as a stand alone book.

The author calls this an “epistolary detective novel.” The mystery is, “Who was Prince Argrath?” The book consists of a series of Gloranthan documents, each with their own prejudices and biases, lies and errors, insights and secrets revealed.
