True. The other problem is that Elmal is a sort of 'cross borders' deity. Celestial turned Storm.
And I think that empahsizing the Storm aspects of the Heortlings first is probably wise, especially with the new blood we are getting.
Been running demos of the game -- folks, go out and do it! Its actually a lot of fun. If you can teach, its a blessing.

The downside of Dave's great game is that its' in the past... and Elmal's not quite the center of attention he used to be -- fortunately, Your Glorantha May Differ is the 4th law of Orlanth, I'm thinking.
