I think that it can be considercd a second draft of Elmal, that is going to go through an editing/revisions process ...

I personally think that the Affinity ought to be Light/Fire.

One Fire power that Elmal certainly does have, even in this version, is his Blazing Spear.

Me too : but the Elmal/Yelmalio debate won't be completely over until the Fat Thunder Rebels sing ...

... and perhaps not even then ... :-(

Well I certainly haven't found that light is more noticeable than heat on high mountain tops, except when skiing. And even then, the heat sometimes gets pretty amazing.

The relative coolness of mountain tops as compared to valleys is in fact a product of wind and/or clouds (and altitude of course, which in Gloranthan terms might just be proximity to the Storm, to Kero Fin, Inora, and Valind) ; it's not a weakness of the Sun.

This is the same Sun that shines in the valleys. If Elmal is the mountain top Sun, who is the valley bottom Sun of native Orlanthi mythology ?

It's Elmal !

PS I can't remember who won the following bun fight :

            Did Elmal ever have any Sun Dome temples ?
