Like a Crimson Bat with a bad case of the munchies, Moon Rites is seventy two pages of Lunar myth and mystery. Moon Rites is a fundraiser for Gloranthacon VIII. Focusing on the Empire and its subjugation of the barbarian nations of the extremity, Moon Rites features articles, fiction, scenarios and artwork from some of Glorantha’s most talented explorers and shapers.
