Concerning Great Weapons

Hi, everyone!

I've been a huge Vlad fan ever since I picked up Phoenix many years ago.  I 
really find that I'm enjoying this board, but there is one thing that's been 
really bugging me and I thought I'd throw it out for you guys to dwell on.

In Issola, Sethra tells Vlad that there are 17 Great Weapons.  That statement 
leaves a lot of unanswered questions:

1-When 4 Jenoine attempt to hi-jack a small lake of chaos, only 3 Great 
Weapons (Iceflame, Blackwand & Pathfinder) show up to do battle with them.  
Where are the others?

2-If Dragerea's been around for a couple hundred thousand years, isn't 
Morrolon a little young to have a Great Weapon?  Or are they handed down as 
family heirlooms?

3-Why did Sethra insist on calling Lady Teldra Godslayer?  It didn't slay a 
God, it slayed a Jenoine.  There is a big difference.  I find if rather 
abrupt and forced.
