IIRC at Tentacles 2000 Greg said that omnilocation is a very standard divine power (talking about Orlanth rather than Tolat). Within their realm, that is.

One "day" of timeless Godtime may very well outweigh an entire year - Arkat was conceived and born during the Sunstop. I also note the varying lengths of pregnancy for Trowjangi mothers, which hint at some tampering with the normal flow of Time.

Tolat and Shargash still may have the same relationship as Elmal and Yelm - different deities sharing the same celestial body and drawing on the same transcendent thingamajic.
