Malkion's death was during the Great Darkness. It is the same event as the destruction of the Spike as can be seen in the Mostali version.

They don't. The book is in error for it is a copy of some early text that Greg failed to correct. (FWIW there's other errors such as the Duck with a Human Foot RM p70, the use of "Gods" instead of "Great Spirits" in the discussion of Pamaltelan Animism RM p29 and so forth).

>4) Theistic World set from "North" to "Center" (p.2)

There's a difference between what the Malkioni call Gods and the HW nomenclature. Those that created the Great Mountain (RM p4) included entities from all four directions.
