The fact that both use a triangle is surely a coincidence. How many regular three-sided shapes are there?

I don't agree with the former, if only because Humakt is such a popular cult, and I want to have the tradeoff. Also, it seems reasonable that a certain amount of commonality exists (and in truth, resurrection magic is rare enough that it doesn't really matter). I admit it's equally reasonable that differences exist, and this could well be one.

I give Humath the Air rune (and the title North War Wind), but so far I haven't given him any air rune spells. Perhaps he should get Lightning from his brother Orlanth (or even provide it to Orlanth -- currently I have him providing Truesword and Oath; Orlanth gives him Thunderbolt).

Sure, just like She Who Waits doesn't really get worship from the Lunars.
