Ok. So what about those "enslaved tribes" or clans who have accepted Doburdun worship?

Do they retain their clan wyters? If so, how do the wyters or their powers change from the switch of affiliation? How much ancestor support will they retain?

Do these clans worship Doburdun exclusively, or along with the Thunder Brothers (i.e. something like Orlanth in 48 pieces)?

How does their (temporal) magical advantage play out during the Fimbulwinter of '22?

Are there Dobudurni magical strike forces among the rebels at Iceland? (After all, you can be a Balmyr and still hate the Empire that brought the Fimbulwinter.)

I mean we have some 600 pages on Heortlings as they should be, but very little on Heortlings (and Tarshites) as they pragmatically are.
