All the above. :)

IMHO this is not so, and in fact part of the upcoming Hreo Wars epic includes an opportunity for the player characters to resurrect Tada, possibly (though not necessarily) in opposition to that upstart Waha. The resurrection will most likely reqire conflict between these two great Praxian heroes because Waha's abilities depend upon the wasted lands to be relevant, while Tada brings the opportunity to reinvigorate the wasteland. The resurrection of Genert (mighty hordes of vomiting hyenas) in a land whose actual location is both unknown and reachable only by paths yet to be discovered shall provide an (the?) opportunity to unite those two mighty would-be rivals.

Nor, in my Glorantha, is this so. Jaldon, Waha and Tada re distinct individuals who shall have the opportunity to co-exist, if the players do everythign according toa plan which will possibly (in the end) not benefit the players at all.

I am not absolutely sure, but I believe that Tada is the son-in-law of Genert.

Sincerely,
Greg Stafford
