A piece for the Glorantha Sourcebook (although it's bound to show up in a few places), depicting the mythic and cosmological structure of Glorantha.
Going from top to bottom, we can see here:
The goddess Glorantha herself, the embodiment of existence, sat atop a dragon. The dragon itself forms the Infinity rune, as it coils around the top of The Spike, the central point of the world and the mountain on which most of the gods lived.
Below them are arranged the Cosmic Court, the pairs of gods and goddesses that form the dualistic nature of relationships and power - Disorder against Harmony, Life against Death, Illusion against Truth, Stasis against Change.
Below them, we see the elemental gods, the first on top being Aether, the primordial Fire of the sky. Below him is Umath, the first of the Storm gods, twisting himself as he rips apart his father the Sky and his mother the Earth, trying to make a place for himself to exist. To his sides are two dragons and storm clouds.
Below him yet is Gata, the Earth, the goddess of primeval bounty and fertility, guarded by her two sons and lovers, the earth giants Genert and Pamalt. Around her are the Land Goddesses, her numerous daughters, each of whom is responsible for a certain region.
Below them, under the Spike, is Water, with the strange deities of water standing in front of the primal Serpent.
Then finally, at the bottom is Hell, the Underworld. The place in which Darkness was first born, separating itself from Chaos. Here sits Nakala, the first Darkness, and within her womb are the Father of Demons and the Mother of Space, and surrounding them are the demons and unmentionable things that call the Underworld their home.
