I suppose it's made more mythic as the Arduin roolz characters were only
Dave's interpretations. I hate to see Clerical, Druidical or Imperial
Magic languages in glorantha!

Or perhaps a special type of amoured nurse that rides into
the heat of battle and rescues the Fallen?

Not Argrath White Bull IMO. The Argrath aka Garrath Sharpsword.
Argrath White Bull is a nomad leader who appears out of the blue
after the Cradle goes Downriver.

This is Argrath of Pavis who is distinct from Argrath White Bull (who
unifies the nomads) and Argrath of Sartar (who went on the Cradle and
will be the counter bloke in Dragon Pass). Argrath is truely great
for he contains multitudes...

Corflu was largely untouched. A lot of people tried to storm the
Cradle but were repelled. The Watchdog of Corflu recieved a
pounding but survived.
