In that other role-playing game the generic term is “demihumans”. Would that be OK in Glorantha? Or should I use elder races? inhuman races?




The generic term is “Elder”

Elder Races

Most Gloranthan communities are very insular and doubt the humanity even of their neighbours. Only the learned and cosmopolitan can accept that the Elder Races share the Man Rune form with people.


No generic names for elder races

I agree with Charles – BTW gentlemen, your photos are very impressive, very professional-looking. Few human cultures even realize there are many nonhumans; they face specific races and have specific names for all. For instance, the westerners call all nonhuman krjalki, but most of them think they are mutated, degenerated humans-who-are-not-humans-anymore!
