That's Tatius' plan for building the temple. 1621 sees the Fall of Whitewall and the Windstop. However, Broyan does Tatius the discourtesy to reappear early in 1622 to organize resistance. The resulting Battle of Iceland should stop this side-effect of Tatius' temple-building, but not quite the temple-building itself.

I suppose that even in the original plans the release of Ernalda would have been necessary for the completion of the rite.

However, the Windstop will last less than four years unless in your campaign Broyan and companions lose their fight in a big way.

As far as I've heard Greg speak at Tentacles, there is supposed to be one Ice Summer in Dragon Pass, and thus one year of winds being swallowed by the Windstop, going nowhere, and from what we know, not returning.

Winds = storm daimons, btw... Possibly spirits from Prax as well.
