To cross-topics somewhat, I`m actually slightly miffed that Anduiras`

inheritor, Haelyn, seems to have a lost a lot of the emphasis on "wind and

air". I suppose that amongst his greatest fans, the Anuireans, "primitive"

elemental-style worship must be out of vogue. In my conception of Rjurik and

Basarji beliefs Haelyn (Holn, Halaia) has a more "wind-oriented" areas of

concern. In Rjurik I see a lot of Holn`s intangible traits (honour, justice,

etc) as being associated with a "wind that clears things away". I see the (in

my opinion) warrior followers of Halaia in Khinasi as making strong use of

wind-analogies in their mystical teachings. I have even made use of such

symbols (with one of my own characters) in Anuire, when a cleric went to a

windy cliff to indulge in a bit of eremetic adoration of Haelyn.
