By decree of the Red Emperor, the fleshpots of Massos in Darjiin will be the setting for a new competition to celebrate the unity and diversity of the Lunar Empire. Entitled "A Song for Peloria", bands and artistes from every constituent people of the Empire have been summoned to participate in the First Pelorian Song Competition!

A 2 hour Gloranthan 3rd age freeform, based on another infamous 'Eurovisi@n Song Contest', this light-hearted all singing all dancing game will actually include some singing and dancing in a Gloranthan setting. Exotic costume welcome, and no you don't have to sing if you don't want to — but if you want to mime or sing some of the worst songs ever written about this wonderful fantasy setting, this will be your chance!

A game of myth, magic, intrigue and third rate Pelorian pop set in the final days of a decadent empire, no knowledge of Glorantha is needed to play, but ear plugs may be! The Hero Wars were never meant to be like this…
