Thanks, Greg and Jeff.

While this is not clarifying in the sense I've accustomed to understand "clarity", it's definitely Gloranthan, and very evocative.

Other than both Iberias are Greek names, given to the people/kingdoms thus described. But of course, giving a similar name doesn't connect the two in any way. Like the Pictae (Caledonian Picts) and Pictones (in Gallia) were not the same, other than both probably had tattoos to an extent that drew the Romans' attention. So, there was some sort of "real" connection, even if a weak one.

I can see a Lunar provincial who knows both Carmania and Heortland to draw connections between the City of Kitor and the Kitori of the Troll Woods. With the Lunar way of constructive heroquesting, they may actually find/form such a link for real. ;-)
