As the Sylilans are descended from Orlanthi, it's probable that their crafters would worship Orlanthi Gods. Thus we would have Gustbran the Redsmith and Minlister the Brewer from KoS, Pananala the Potter from an Ernalda myth that was up on

>So far I have:

Lodril is inappropriate for Sylila as the land is no good for Lodrili style farming. There are the Ten Sons and Servants of Lodril that can be used (Alfostios the Cooper, Ostevius the Carpenter, Venurtera the Potter and perhaps Morurder the Miller) but I would only expect to see these people in Jillaro.

>* Yestendos or Anaxial (for shipwrights)

The Sylilans would not worship these blokes and crafting isn't their worshippers day job.

Nothing more is known. You might be right about his Pelandan origins, but IMO he was a extraordinary crafter who lived then and was deified later.

Voriof. However Ernalda is the goddess who weaves AFAIK.
