    It's not really fair, I have an innate bias. That question to the Unveiled Azadiyah was mine. :D Very pleased that both N and Pilaf took my pov and even discredited the author.

    So, to me Tava is both Meridia and Kyne combined. Factor in Matt's Creation Myth:

    Did you catch what Tall Papa said to the spirits trapped on Mundus? "...and he told the spirits that they must learn new ways to follow the stars to the Far Shores now." It is possible that Ruptga was referring to the Magna-Ge, who escaped Mundus. Coincidentally the Yokudans happened to be exceptionally advanced in the field of astronomy, which is the study of celestial objects like stars. (Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition/HammerfellSo is it possible that the early Yokudans understood what the stars really were? Stars do play an important in the Yokudan myth, as they guided weaker spirits to the Far Shores. Not to mention the innumerable unknown gods that the Redguards once worshipped which correlates with the countless number of stars. This worshipping of Magna-Ge, as opposed to solely worshipping the gods within Mundus, would also explain why the Redguards have gods such as Leki and Onsi who don't appear in any other pantheon in any variation.

    And now the idea of these escaping Yoku's escaping Yokuda via a rocket ship, following the Magna Ge and helped by Meridia-who-is-Tava, also a Wayward Solar Daughter, well... it is compelling to me.

    Like I say, biased as hell.
