Yes, that bit got me confused as well. I also wonder if we're tying the named characters too closely together. I know Orlanthi go in for complex relationships but there are several hundred people in WW and it seems a bit strange that the dozen we've mentioned so far are all related this closely.

The other thing I'd really like to include is the big scene where Rana walks in on the wedding party straight from fighting her way though the Lunars. Recently married doesn't quite have the same impact.

Good job of making sense of our ramblings though.
