Corrupted is a misnomer methinks. The disasters would have happened
even if the God Learners had remained faithful to the original ideals
of the 'Return to Rightness' Crusade. Besides the big disasters also
affected other empires who were always ignorant of the Forbidden Secret
of the God Learners (the destruction of the Elf Empire of Errinoru and
the Two Year Winter that afflicted the EWF spring to mind).

I don't think this is quite right. The Gods of Pelanda did go away
after a while and it was only though the devotions of the Palmsters
of Hagu that Turos returned. *Then* he goes and defeats GanEstoro
and sets the world to right...
