> > Think of it this way: If Gods of Prax had not included the Lhankor Mhy write-up, and we were inventing the cult today based on the fuller picture of Sartarite culture we have now, would we assume that LM's followers were bookish scholars, or would we picture scholars who operate within a framework of oral knowledge, memorization, and recitation? Which feels more at home in Sartar?
> Glorantha and Sartar are both older than Cults of Prax, in fact older than RuneQuest (any edition). There has been literate sages in Sartar since Greg first discovered the place.
And even if it had been introduced as a rules artifact originally, I think it just makes the setting all the more authentic if the cultures show a few surprises that supposedly, at least at first glance, don't seem to fit them. The real world does it all the time, after all.
