Me>>Ersolia was an Orlanthi society but no longer. In place of the Orlanthi
>>Ring, the Esrolians have the Women's Ring which has different traditions
Last January, I would have said there are six places for the six
goddesses: Asrelia, Ty Kora Tek, Ernalda, Babeester Gor (first
'a' short or long as desired - Greg apparently prefers both),
Voria and Maran Gor. More details could be found in Wyrms
Footprints 'Goddesses of the Earth'.
Unfortunately since then Greg posted a myth which said that
Asrelia had three daughters: Ernalda, Marangor and Esrolia.
Marangor is our feared Maran Gor, but Esrola is the goddess
of the earth's bounty (food, kids, lust and blood) whereas
Ernalda now becomes the goddess of the spiritual earth "whose
power is not found in solid things, but in actions, rules,
ceremonies, music and familial care."
Now although it's not stated on the webpage concerned, Shannon
has said that it's a myth from Harmast's Saga. So this myth
could be a relic of earlier times before the God Learners (who
ruled Esrola for a while) dicked around.

Space 1999. Ye Gods, that's only next year!
