Ragnaglar, some questions (2012)

Submitted by Iskallor on Tue, 06/11/2012 – 13:27

I need some help with Abilities and Feats that a Devotee of Ragnaglar might have.

I’m running a game where he is one of the major bad guys in a RQ adventure set in Ginijji during the Third Age.

It’s using the RQ rules but I’m still more interested in HQ type abilities and Feats.

Any ideas?

Cheers.

Your Glorantha may of course vary, however he has been obliterated and no longer can be contacted. He is not part of the Great Compromise.

Now his Son on the other hand still has influence…

Ragnaglar [rag-NAG-lahr]

Chaos pantheon — the Mad God, leader of the Unholy Trio

Ragnaglar is sometimes called the kinsman of Storm Bull, driven to hatred and dishonorable acts by jealousy. His spouse was Thed, his mistress was Malia. Together the three formed the Unholy Trio. As proof of Ragnaglar’s madness they brought chaos, the final catastrophe, into the world.
In recent times Ragnaglar survives as only a nursery tale, for he was slain by Storm Bull. Thed and Malia survive, but since the demise of their horrid master their outrages have not risen to such a magnitude as to threaten the existence of the universe.

In many troll and barbarian ceremonies a surrogate Ragnaglar is created for ritual combat. Ragnaglar’s stand-in wears a mask with four different horns and two mouths, and the legs of many different animals are draped from his neck.

you missed a bit:

In many troll and barbarian ceremonies a surrogate Ragnaglar is created for ritual combat. Ragnaglar’s stand-in wears a mask with four different horns and two mouths, and the legs of many different animals are draped from his neck… and is promptly beaten to death.
