The Darra Happans, the Easterners and the Malkioni each have history that pre-dates the dawn. But they do not agree on much, if anything, else. In fact the Easterners have no event that equates to the dawn/beginning of time at all.

Arguing on an objective basis that one Gloranthan culture is right and all the others are wrong is an exercise in futility. See http://www.btinternet.com/~nick_brooke/rants/one-true.htm for how long this has been constant in Glorantha.

Arguing on a subjective basis that one of the cultures is correct is what Gloranthans do, frequently assisted by weapons and armies of varying shapes and sizes... And the winner can magically enforce this "proof" on the loser.
