    Hi Wolfsire,

    Thank you for your feedback. :-)

    I will take your and TZ's suggestion with my next foray into canon, at least as I see that at this point.
    Funny that you should mention "dimensional politics." ;-)

    I agree that there is a lot more that can be explored and you are right, I think, that it is one thing to look at a particular difficulty or open question for what it is and another to look to try to address that. WeeJas Resurrected starts that process but it is by no means complete.

    I find the conjunction of death and magic fascinating, as it is more than the mere sum of its parts. This is where I see a "waste" of making Wee Jas anything but a greater goddess.

    Then again, the more I think about Sargent demoting every Suel greater deity without explaination, the more I think there is a much larger issue here for both GH continuity and the understanding of the Suel.

    If Sargent's unilaterial and unexplained action stands, I believe, it must occasion a fundamental rethinking of the Suel as a lesser influence in GH and thus a rethinking of the GH setting to the degree it has featured Suel more prominently.

    How much easier and logical to go back to the greater Suel deities Gygax and Lakofka originally set out?

    How much worse to imagine a Greyhawk "Time of Troubles" like the Realms to explain mass godly demotions?

    How disingenuous to just "accept" Sargent's demotions with an uncritical eye?

    Fun stuff. ;-D
