USW2001 Uz: The Trolls of Glorantha (2005)

The Uz are an ancient and hungry race, laboring under a mighty curse. Yet they have grand plans of their own, ready to be revealed as the Hero Wars erupt across Glorantha. Ever since the original Trollpack was produced for RuneQuest, the Uz have been popular as unusual characters, mysterious encounters, and dangerous enemies. Issaries Inc. is working on a multi-volume series of supplements on the Uz and their lands, myths, and secrets. In the meantime, however, it has licensed this interim work to satisfy the demand for rules, cults, and keywords for the Uz in the new Hero Wars game. The Unspoken Word will be publishing this 64-page full-size book in December. Largely written by James Frusetta, Uz series author for Issaries, it will present all-new information on trolls as player heroes and narrator characters, as well as cults and spirits. It will also include some key elements from previous works on the Uz. Comprehensively illustrated throughout with new art, it brings the Dark Men to your game with the vigor and enthusiasm for which they are so rightly (in)famous!
