Aqui está o mais próximo da palavra oficial que você provavelmente conseguirá, e ela realmente não responde à sua pergunta!
Do Glorantha Lore Tumbler , como erudito site como existe:
In Glorantha, everything has a spirit. There are spirits for everything in nature; every tree, every stone, every animal, every human and everything else. Your spirit is what animates you and gives you life. It has many different names: your breath, your heat, your shadow, your beast soul. Without your spirit, you are not alive.
Ghosts are a bit trickier to define. Like I said before, there are spirits of the dead who are restless and dangerous to the living. But there are also ancestor spirits, who are worshipped by many cultures and are entirely benign. And there’s ghosts in the Underworld, where dead spirits are meant to go. Either way they’re a type of spirit, but it’s pretty situational, like many things in Glorantha.
E lá você tem Glorantha em poucas palavras!
