Is there any way to play with just 2? Does the idea of each player, playing two factions a possibility?

Yup, there's a 2 player section in the rulebook. Works the same way as the original Cthulhu Wars two player rules - 2 factions each. Theoretically, you could also use 3-4 factions each for a mega game.

I imagine the updated rules for the 2-player Cthulhu Wars could also be adapted for Glorantha - although this'd probably be a fan variant.

Actually, that's old. There is no 2 player version of The Gods War. Sandy is fairly adamant about this, and there is no SG planned to make it 2 player.

It was difficult (more than it might seem) to pull off a good 2 player for CW, and b/c of the differences of TGW, it will be harder. Sandy is happy with it being a multiplayer only strategy game experience.

Whats the upper ceiling on players? 8? (assuming stretch goal for lunars) Is there a separate 6-8 player board as CW has?

main game 3-5 map.

SG to add 6-8 map in the Empires box. So, assuming we hit that SG (which I think we will!), 6-8 map is freely added to the main expansion (empires, which adds all the other playable factions in a single box).
