In fact, I'd even revise my idea of Vinga Joins the Thunder Brothers would be in the Gods World. I think now that participating in that event would be in the Hero Plane. Anything that has changed the fabric of the cosmos is in the Hero Plane.
The Otherworlds are places that are fixed. They are outside of the realms of time and space. Orlanth's Hall, to use a well know example, exists on the God Plane but as soon as your hero (or anyone for that matter) wishes to do something, it becomes localized as being the Hall in the God War, or Hall in Golden Age or whatever.
I realize this is a different way to present this data. The alien world modifiers then take on a different meaning in the heroquesting. They become nearly useless, except when moving into the Hero Planes.
