RPG Information (AEG) Edit
Glory is how others view a character through his reputation. Secretive shameful acts do not cause a loss of Glory, they will only cause a loss of Honor.  Glory is always awarded by the character's direct superior, and all his promotions on the Lord or sensei. 
RPG Information (FFG) Edit
Glory represents society's view of a character's success in their mandated role. For a samurai, this reflects the reputation they have won as an effective agent of their lord, as well as the general consensus about whether or not they uphold Bushidō. In particular, glory is affected by the opinion of a character's sworn lord.
