I don't think Issaries ever was part of Genert's Pantheon. He's a Orlanthi deity at the first association that he has with Genert is explicitly a post-dawn event.

Umm, Storm Bull married Eiritha before the Gods War.

By the time Pavis was around, Genert's Pantheon was long gone.

Depends if he's a sorcerous entity or what.

The Seolinthur.

The Elves claim Genert to have been one of the four corners of the land according to GoG and they did live in a huge forest that covered Prax.

But since one of the five people that fought with Genert was the white elves, Halamdrya would be more probable.

>A Hunter god

I doubt there's a hunter god if the Praxians remember Genert's time as a time when Rabbits came freely to the eating.

Wouldn't this be Genert the Gardener?

>A sun god

Somebody said Yamsur once. Probably Lord of the Sky Spears. However there's also Bright Treasure from Drastic Prax and the Yellow-bellied God from the Glorantha: Intro. Of course these last two could be titles or epithets.

>Ratslaf? Hyena?

Hyena, yes. Doubtful for the others (and I know you're thinking about the Castle of Boggles on the Plateau of Statutes).

>A corn king ?

Corn comes from Ignorance. If it's generic grain, then I don't think Genert would specialize in any one grain.

Other Gods:

Ragnaglar (described in Tales #14 p21 as the Defender of the Daughters of Eiritha).
Strorkbrion, Genert's successor.
Golden People God.
Copper Warrior God.
