Could be, though I'm not convinced that she'd take the risk of getting her friends into that much trouble if she was found. Or maybe she really was travelling around the Quivin mountains all winter. Practising her skiing ready for Fimbulwinter?

I'm sorry, but I just don't believe the Lunars could be that incompetent at this stage. Didn't recognise her? She's got a crystal embedded in her skull. A little bit obvious? Captured and then escaped, maybe (she seems to make a habit of it), but that can't have introduced much a delay.

Only works if they realise what she's up to, but it's an interesting possibility.

Me too. And I'm sure in Glorantha there's a sliding scale between them, not fixed, rigid boundaries.

Same here, when writing stories at least.
