Good observation. Presumably this ritual is performed at the beginning of the serious defense of Whitewall (i.e. before the Summons of Evil), sanctifying the fortress as the divine camp of Orlanth/Umath. Presumably the defenders intend to end the ceremony following the BatBlat (because of course the Lunars will leave after the Bat is killed).

Except the Lunars don't leave. Does this mean that the lead defenders remain in their ceremonial roles for the next two years? Just a thought...

This is a brilliant idea Jane. I think we should roll with this.
