INORA, THE WHITE PRINCESS She is a winter spirit closely related to Himile, and is the goddess of frost -- the Snow Queen, if you will. In Prax, Inora is viewed as just another powerful spirit to be contacted for her benefits. In less arid country, she is regarded as a malign entity to be propitiated. I imagine that SOMEWHERE in Glorantha she has an organized cult, but she's pretty minor. She shows up in Yelmalio's Hill of Gold quest as an enemy to be endured just before the chaos monsters come. The spell she teaches at shrines (and to the Praxians) causes all the ground within range to be frozen, and the plants to be covered with frost. When the sun comes up, this rapidly melts and everyone enjoys the moisture. In Sartar, her spell causes the equivalent of an ice storm, and is quite aggravating.
