I'd imagine so too.

'Picking apart' myths, or combining seemingly different ones isn't _necessarily_ malicious or 'abusive', it must be said. It's rather what the capital-L Lunars ended up doing with the myths of the Goddess, from the fragments that were all that was left in different cults and regions of Peloria. So that's going to act as either legitimate precedent or plausible excuse to use similar techniques elsewhere.

Good point. That does sound similar -- not so much 'killing', as m*st*c*lly rationalising (the effects of) him away... And roughly consistent with the usual party line that Orlanth needs to be 'healed' rather than abolished as such.
