You're welcome.

Seconded.

Direct worship of the Gloranthan Court deities as they were in the Golden Age is pointless. Kargan (Tor), Master of Weapons, survives as a Humakt subcult. Larnste receives some worship in Hendreik's Hero Cult. Uleria underwent changes, and for instance doesn't propagate parthenogenic births any more.

Much sense snipped.

Peter:

>>I find it hard to believe
>>that the conflict is evidence that the Naverians sought to hinder
>>the rise of the Red Moon and still seek to draw it down.

> I have to agree with Peter here.
> The High Gods of Pelanda are not a theogonic rubber-stamp committee ...

My original message said nothing about the Naverians, but about the Naverian Earth, which is well known for having risen into the sky in an attempt to reunite with the red body. The result is called the Crater.

The Pelandan Seven (the closest thing we get for Naverian myths) had reasons to deny Natha's role in the perfect universe. Her acceptance was acceptance of the world being broken.
