In my own private Glorantha, "arkat" became the word for "liberator" in the
theyalean language of the west orlanthi (ralians), wheras in Maniria &
Peloria it transformed itself into "argrath". So that this wily Garrath
Swordsharp guy very astutely saw the word-play he could do with his name &
exploited it to the max !

War-cry (i.e. slogan) of the Vinga cult after 1621 S.T. (Quoted in H. T.
Black's "The Once & Future Queen"; Jonstown, SA: Royal Library of Startar
Press, 1675 S.T. [the typo seems intended]}

* A.k.a. Kallyr-Argrath ! (Thanx Martin for the idea !)
