I don't see how this follows. Looking at Sartar's deeds, I can't see anything unimaginably "impossible" and can point to several other heroes that have done similar things to what Sartar did.

The notion that Sartar is the hero who invented sliced bread would be a commonplace the Sartarites with their limited horizons, but even limiting myself to west-central genertela, I don't see how he's all that great.
