That hasn't changed.
So the hypothetical deseating of Baruk Kaah's throne in Atlanta would require that all three of the three stelae around it be replaced, otherwise the maelstrom bridge located there would remain in place.
Well, this is definitely going to help shape the dynamic between Baruk Kaah and Circe:
From Circe's point of view, Baruk Kaah expanded excessively into the south into her assigned invasion territory before her planned arrival time, so she feels justified in retaliating the way she is.
From Baruk Kaah's point of view, Ahzad-Tol wasn't in place yet, so why shouldn't he claim available territory? Besides, he's a successful Reality Raider with many victories under his belt, and Circe is overly cautious from his point of view... Right up until she knocks out his maelstrom bridge in the Georgia Zone and pushes her forces far enough north to cause a stalemate in the now mixed Ahzad-Tol/Living Land Cherokee & Kentucky Zones.
Basically, by that point, Circe wants Baruk Kaah stuffed and mounted in one of her trophy galleries as soon as anybody can make him permanently dead, and he in turn wants her skull on his belt.
Our stelae map for North America is going to end up looking a bit different than the official one in the Living Land supplement, given where we chose to place Ahzad-Tol's maelstrom bridges. I've been considering changing the placement of the one we put down in Peurto Padre because I happen to like the idea of the Caribbean becoming another hotbed of contention between the two High Lords. And I don't particularly want to get rid of Baruk Kaah's reason for bringing along the Bluespine clan.
