The Common Enemy

The Common Enemy

The Common Enemy was really an excuse to demonstrate the scale of a few creatures and characters from my RuneQuest campaign. Few things would bring together this unlikely mix of races, other than the killing of a foul Broo – which would be lying more awkwardly in a more ‘realistic’ image. Like I said, this is mostly about scale comparisons.

So, yes, the Humakti on the far left (‘Tormakt‘) and the Orlanthi on the far right (‘Odus‘) are supernaturally-enlarged humans, which is why Tormakt’s older brother Lismelder is playing Mr. Average in the centre. He’s about 5′ 10″, for reference. He also isn’t a Hero, which is why he doesn’t look too comfortable being surrounded by a Beaked Dragonewt, Dark Troll, Iron Dwarf and an Elf known as Aari Hollybush. For those not familiar with the wonder that is the world of Glorantha, yes, Iron Dwarves are living metal, and Elves really are mobile vegetation. Or ‘salad’, if you’re a dark troll.
