Yeah, let's not make too much of a Kallyr storm association. As John has observed, she's Rigsdal and Vinga. The storm is the collective power of the Heortling defenders. Besides, I am sure that there are many Thunderer devotees amongst the 50 or 60 folk of the Orlanth Temple.

John - I'd like to suggest that the Defender Storm occurs before the Bat comes. In fact, I'd like to suggest that it is before the defenders prepare for their Summons of Evil. Kallyr and the vingans delay the Lunars enough for the rest of the Ring of Broyan to assemble - this could even occur in early Darkness Season. The defenders later perform the Summons of Evil and prepare for the coming attack.
