	I agree. I hadn't thought of Molanni as being a stasis deity (well, certainly a way to connect to Air without Movement, which is at least thoroughly compatible with Stasis), but it is a good call.
	I think the most positive connection with Stasis for Orlanthi is stone, which they mostly access via minor Earth deities. 
	The unchanging sky is definitely something that the Orlanthi might associate with Stasis, but rarely positively. Stalwart Rigsdal always at his post, perhaps.
