Shargash was chained. Not much difference to a god of unbridled violence, as
Vadrus is commonly regarded to be...

"Izzat so? Report that to General Euglyptus, now, or better yesterday. The
General will tell you about namby-pamby while you carry his sedan chair
across Upland Marsh..."

And with Tatius the Bright in charge, things get worse because Tatius is
(sort of) magically competent (although militarily an absolute catastrophe -
imagine to spend the better part of 5000 Lunar souls to storm an abandoned
hill-fort...).

Like it or not, the Dara Happans sponsored Moirades' dearest wish to conquer
Sartar, and then they kept most of the spoils, too. Not even the classical
eel surfeit could change that...
