A lot of discussion has gone on about where ordinary humans have it best in Glorantha. But I think it is safe to say that common people in Ramalia have it worse. Oppressive, fearful and consumed with hate, Ramalia is a prison camp.
But even worse than the ordinary folk of Ramalia are the trollkin. A slave worker if you are lucky, food for your relative if you are unlucky. The life of the ordinary trollkin is one of misery. No wonder they hope the Black Eater devours them in death so they suffer no more.
Being a peasant in Ramalia is probably even worse than being a helot in Laconia or Messenia. But it is far better than being a trollkin, living forever in fear that your kinfolk will decide to eat you.
