Death of Gods

I posted elsewhere some questions about Ragnaglar and was informed that he was obliterated by Urox. It says slain in the Gloranthan wiki.In the same wiki it mentions that Humakt killed Orlanth.So how come Orlanth can be worshipped but Ragnaglar can’t?

Also, Ragnaglar was crushed by and is trapped beneath an enormous piece of Truestone/Law. Maybe he is not dead, just trapped. Maybe those ogres tunneling beneath the Block might be able to reach their dead god and release him.  Simon Phipp.

The Devil

It’s the Devil, not Ragnaglar beneath the Block, from Sartar:Kingdom of Heroes:
“Ragnaglar, the evil Other brother, had conspired with two goddesses to produce Evil incarnate. The deities Mallia, Ragnaglar, and Thed joined and became the Unholy Trio. They made Wakboth, the chaos god, the worst thing that ever came into Glorantha.”
“Urox was foremost in combat. He taught Death’s virtues to his people when he slew vile Ragnaglar with his horns of iron.”
“It bounced once or twice across the earth as Urox directed it to crush the Devil, and pinned him
beneath immeasurable tons of solid Law. The Devil was ground asunder and buried for eternity beneath the huge block of adamant.”—–David Scott

Whoops! Of course it is. My mistake.  Simon Phipp.

Orlanth’s death was passing into the land of the dead and he was revived by the Cosmic Compromise.
Ragnaglar remains dead because he wasn’t part of the Compromise but was in another chaotic hell at the time.
