It turns out my wife [who has become a huge Critical Roll fan] has purchased the Tal'dorei Reborn Awakened Tier. It arrives tomorrow.

Spoiler:
Yes, I know that this is a good problem to have.

I was already hoping to run the Abomination Vaults, but now I have buy-in! I already have the Pathfinder 2e version.

But …

For those who may be more familiar with Exandria,
* - Can you suggest a good substitute for Absalom as the focus of Belcorra's rage?
* - Would you keep Nhimbaloth, or substitute one of the Betrayer Gods?

Pretty much any big important city would work really.

And for latter, probably not unless setting is very particular about "only these gods exist and nobody else" which is fairly rare even in 3rd party D&D settings. Nhimbaloth's dealio with eating ghosts is pretty specific

Nhimbaloth is an Elder Mythos homage creation straight from James Jacobs. I don't see why it would be necessary to substitute it. Other than the location maybe I don't see why you would have to substitute anything at all. I mean -- does she know where "the Everlight" came from?

You're right.

Beyond that, the great city of Emon would be a suitable target of Belcorra's rage.

Otari would be on the coast south of the city, near that river.

The only other changes needed are the deities of Otari
*- Cayden Cailean: Aspect of Avandra
*- Erastil: Replace with Pelor
*- Gozreh: Replace with Melora
*- Sarenrae: Use her Exandrian name of Raei

The Cosmic Caravan is a little more complex as the Exandrian Pantheon is not as large as Golarion's

Though Nhimbaloth can be used as is, I am tempted to change her to the unnamed Primordial of Air. This would hook in an Ashari character (of any of the four tribes).
