In a way, the parallel is with heroes and followers. If a hero has lots of followers, they can lend lots of APs in a contest. Handy, but they don't permanently boost the hero, and the hero who depends on this advantage becomes vulnerable to an enemy who first of all gets rid of the followers. Much like the Lunar strategy in Sartar - kill, demoralise and convert Orlanthi, to leave the way open for an attack on Himself.

Definitely - Deshkorgos is MM, a servant of Lodril. He's not a nice chap but he is an accepted part of the Solar order. Ganesatarus is an outsider, enemy and all-round Bad Lad.
