I was recapping "official rumours" from the HW and HW-rules list that they were separate entities and one was not misapplied worhsip of the other. I'm perfectly happy to be wrong.

There have been several suns in Glorantha. Elmal is also the Sun (for Orlanthi). I think there is one sun on the mundane plane (since time began). There were several suns before time began. I don't think there is a one-to-one mapping between mundane plane entities and entities outside time.
