Isn't this cool?

I agree with the suggestion. Maybe there should be 7 heroes to represent the 7 winds (Broyan, Leika, Kallyr, ?, ?, ?, ?)?

I think it is unavoidable to everyone present that Orlanth is at Whitewall - he's there and manifest. The defenders summon the Thunderer.

The storm is more powerful than the Bat - but the heroes still need to get up on the Bat and get physical. I think these things work in tandem.

Oh yes. Definitely. Although I imagine that it also has a contributing effect to the troubles the Lunars had in the next year (1620) and explains in part why Tatius had such a slow buildup.
