Don't worry, @Bill the barbarian, I think everyone ends up being corrected/informed/supplemented here, it's basically inevitable with the sheer amount of published material that's out there - including obscure stuff like old mailing lists, convention-only pamphlets, zines and personal discussions that only a few've been privy to.

you know, I feel that way most times, hell usually it's the corrections that along with the great flights of fancy give the most benefit. Just every now and again you just feel...blah... That's why I said joke/observation. Only half serious.

And now back to the topic at hand...

Cheers

I thought about the feat of "Little Borther" (or Barntar) facing bull(y) brother with nothing but a stick and a lariat when I saw this,  but the outcome is different as it results in a tamed bull - not the case here.

Do you mean when Orlanth faced down Storm Bull for bullying Yinkin?

Yeah, both representations work, really. Might have one Heortling and one Esrolian, with different mythical interpretations, for example.

Perhaps the Esrolian version being used by Earth Cults in Tarsh and only done by women

The Heortling version  could be done by various Orlanthi cults, with different meanings and  acrobatic jumps for each cult.

Ernalda: showing there is another way. 

Orlanth Rex: Balancing violence and co operation 

Barntar: Taming of the Bull 

Vingains: Embracing violence is always an option.

From Shin kicking to Sumo, virtually every culture has a form of Wrestling. It would be highly surprising if there isn't some form of Wrestling in Dragon Pass. You could even have a hero cult based on something similar to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milo_of_Croton . Esrolian female earth wrestling has been banned by orders of the Grandmothers.

Arm wrestling was a Sartarite sample character ability in Hero Wars, if I remember those introductory games correctly.

Plus in The Book of Heortling Mythology Barntar is described as so strong he once beat all the Thunder Brothers at arm-wrestling, and IIRC I've seen mentions elsewhere of Barntar being a good wrestler.

Just keep in mind it s not arm wresting without beer, some say lots of beer but I don't like to argue when I am arm wrestling. I tend to spill my beer.

MORE BEER. <BANG> NEXT!

Barntar is known to the best wrestler among the Thunder Brothers.
