We are the Mostali. We tend the World Machine. Do not pretend that the world is not broken for we see its mechanism and tell you that its gears are seizing and its connections freezing. Do not dismiss us as greedy capricious fools; we are Mostals servants and he is The Mover and Maker. We enact his will and make sure the Machine works as it should and flows along the Great River of Time uninterrupted. Without us, all will halt and the Great Darkness shall return! People of Glorantha: know us and hear us. We are the Mostali. We are the World Machine. We are the ground beneath your feet. And it is broken!
