Shoot, maybe Shannon and I will get together in Berkeley that night and
have one for you as well! Everyone, everywhere, across the world, lift a
pint for MOB! And, since you ain't going neither, don't forget to lift
one for yourself!

Three Feathered Rivals cult, per RuneQuest Companion, is Gateway, not
Gloranthan. Also, because of how long ago it was written, you have to
interpret it a bit. So, I buy the Sun God made Sun Hawk, and the Storm
Demon made Thunder Bird. Raven, probably, just is. The story is the same,
only the names have been changed (to protect the guilty, I'm sure).

BTW, I loved your "origin of ravens" myth -- mind if I use it? Better
yet, want to write the whole story up for me?
