Be cautious here. Greg revised this to state that more demonic earth goddess aspects went to Babeester not Maran.

My understanding is that Maran is the active earth, Ernalda the passive. Maran is earthquakes, landslides, the savage mother defending her brood; Ernalda is nurturing, healing, the mother who plans for the future - looking to her children.

Maran has a number of aspects, which we cover in In Wintertop's Shadow.

No Maran has children, many are immense dinosaur-like creatures that shake the earth as Maran did. Some of her aspects have magic to exchange blood for fertility.

This I believe has been swapped. Babeester is now the barren defender of the earth.
