 Baha! But the Shargashi would tell a different story. In their eyes,
Shargash went off to defeat an evil renegade, he returned battered and
wounded and the renegade (Elmal) never fully recovered. Ergo, he won.
Because the Dara Happans believe that Yelm is the Sun, then Elmal had no
special magic to steal, and therefore Shargash would return home empty
handed whether he had won or not.
 The Shargashi and Elmali probabley argue constantly over who actually won,
and the only people who know departed with the Gift Carriers :)

 Both of which were excellent. They completley go against the Elmali cult
IMG, but this just means that there's the likely hood of an Elmali schism of
which myths about Elmal are true and which are false.

 This is already covered in Gloranthan mythology, the horrifying terror of
space is represented by Father of Demons and Mother of Space (or is it
Father of Space, and Mother of Demons?) that were born to Nakala. They have
no known cult. They have no known influence on Glorantha. Obviously they
were just too darn horrifying....

 As for Uroxi Berserkers, I played a Storm Bull Centaur once. Unfortunately,
in my first tentative exploration into Dorator the group came across a
Walktapus with arablests, which we decided to sneak around and leave alone.
Well, THEY decided to leave it alone, I lowered my pike and charged. My
character holds the record of having made a successful Divine Intervention
only four hours after the character was rolled up :)

I thought Britain was Dorastor without broo,
but then Sandy made it all clear to me.
