Indeed. Now how do we combine this with Jeff's request for Orlanth's responsibility?

Also, how do we match Orlanth's being responsible with the hills already there when Varanorlanth led the Discovery Band back to Motherland?

Not all hills need "Orlanth slew X" as their reason. This might for instance be a place where Varanorlanth prepared one of the Five Majestic Beasts as part of his fishing trip for the Devilfish (like the remains of one of them).

(Although I must say this is one of my least favourite myths from TR - Varanorlanth sets out to get a shag, and instead ends up going fishing?)
