        Thanks for the explanations. The system is pretty straightforward and intuitive IMO.

        I hope there will be musician in SGU, too! Side question: will SGU be published before TR?

        I may also like your interpretation (even if it gives more importance to Illusion than Harmony IMO - of course my interpretation gave too much importance to Harmony over Illusion) but then may I suggest you to change or remove the myth from the website, before it deludes someone else? Because it presents a different Donandar than the one you are now describing.

        Anyway, like I said, I will settle for two Donandars: the Storm one, whose secret is Switch Places (and who exhibits many similarities with the Trickster, and whose worshippers are cautioned to not dwell too much in the realm of illusion lest they lose their connection with reality) and the Solar one (the one of my campaign, being set as it is in the LE) who gives preference to music (and hence to Harmony) over Illusion and whose secret is Harmonize.
