         One thing Heroquest has been very good with is providing enemy gods that aren't chaos. Sure chaos is bad and all, but it isn't the only problem -- most years, keeping Telmor from the sheep, Valin from the stead, Bad Deal from the Market, and a whole passel of Pelorian gods from everything is more urgent. I also like the reminder that Storm has a bad side too -- yes, Lunars can be quite blind to the damage caused by "good chaos," but Orlanthi are oblivious to the idea that their raidin' feudin' unwashed ways might have a down side, too....
