        Indeed. But, as I said, the Yelmic pantheon is rarely considered positively. And, of course, Orlanths Movement rune is part of why.

	That is Rigsdal accessed as a sub-cult of Elmal, and so can only be Fire or Truth, and so very much NOT the whole story on Rigsdals runes - his individual runes might be quite different. For comparison, Heler accessed as a sub-cult of Orlanth has the Air Rune, but contacted directly has the Water and Movement runes. 
	I'd be guessing at Truth and Stasis for Rigsdal myself. Yeah, he is part of the Fire tribe, and a star, but his constancy seems a bigger aspect of his power in Orlanthi legends than his Light connection. But it may well be a weaker connection than a full Rune affinity.
