I know diddly-squat about Jorkandros. I think he should be of a different flavor with the Assiday lot - probably an old campaigning associate of Fazzur and the Provincial Army. Probably not really privy to the full details of the Kill Orlanth project. He handles the siege of Whitewall like Runegate (which was a well run operation, but not of major mythical signficance), runs into surprising resistance - which triggers Kill Orlanth. Tatius gets him removed and installs himself.

No - Shargash breaks Umath who then becomes bunches of storm gods. Different myth altogether IMO. Not what the Lunars want. They want to kill RT. Maybe this is a new, novel Lunar-DH myth?
