Er, Basmol does, a variant anyways. I suspect Shargash does as well, and
GoG gives it to Babeester Gor as well. Doesn't one of the Lodril subcults
provide it, Monster Man I think. And the cult among the Doraddi which is
similar to Lodril, or possibly the Vangono cult, would have it as well.
Finally, I imagine that the Wachaza cult ought to, or some merman deity.

Sounds good to me. And who says they are _really_ extinct? :)

Didn't you know that the Moon Boats of the Lunar Empire are based on the
earlier Sun Shuttles of Dara Happa? And we all know that it is really a
ship in orbit around (er, um, over) Glorantha which sends down those
Sunspears, right?

Gods, I'm going to make _myself_ sick if I keep this up.

And who is not to say that all the dragons killed by the Dara Happans
were _true_ dragons. Most dragon-killing heroes in Glorantha are killers
of Dream Dragons, I am sure. Why should the DHs be any different?

And how is that any different from any other society? Priests into
politicians, politicians into priests, it is pretty much a perpetual
motion machine.
