Where There's a Whip, There's a Way

While trying to prolong some incredibly boring task at work, I decided to jot down a couple of stray observations. It seems to me as if whips should be a part of Orlanthi society, but I haven't noticed them much of anywhere in Gloranthan literature. They would be useful in herding cattle; they can be used in rituals to evoke thunder and lightning; whipping contests could be featured at festivals (displays of prowess, not as some kind of cheap thrill, unless your tastes happen to run that way). There are probably other uses that I haven't even thought of yet. Anybody agree, disagree, or have something to add?
