I had understood (from talking to Greg) that the sometimes-lethal Orlanthi initiations of the First Age were a bygone memory at the end of the Third. This may no longer be goodthink, however.

My own preference would be to significantly lower the infant *and* child mortality rates, in the course of ditching the "50% children" figure we've been lumbered with.
