I read this as Jandetin not surviving this long, so I placed Karndaro in the role of the Grazer King captured at Yoran. Your proposal of Karndaro being the torturer has about as much merit as mine placing Penraltan there...

: After the defeat, the Lunar army went into Dragon Pass and laid it all
: under siege. They captured the Grazer King [Karndaro the Leaper], and
: tortured him for years, and then placed his torturer as the new Grazer
: king [Penraltan the Killer?]. The Lunar Army plundered the [Feathered
: Horse] Queen's Own Temple, and the earth groaned and shook down its
: walls upon the heads of those desecrators, and the young queen was borne
: into safety. Boldhome was saved only when its east front crashed down
: upon the invaders.

Those comments in square brackets are about 6 to 8 years old. Given the fact that there were 7 years between the conquest of Furthest and the Battle of Yoran, one might speak of a long peace, for Dragon Pass conditions at least.

I found it quite spicy that Penraltan the Killer, Grazer king of Lunar grace, claimed to be a steadfast ally of Argrath - since Dwernapple.

With DP:LoT at hand, the Queen's Own Temple might as well have been Heruvernalda or perhaps Maranaba.
