        Which would tend to beg the question of where those lumps of dead Genert that are discovered from time to time come from. I think you are drawing a long bow on the 'Genert is just a story' idea.

>Er... Lunars don't dislike Valind?

        I'm with you Martin. Lunars acknowledge Valinds existence, but that doesn't mean in general they like him. Suppression of the power of Valind via the Kallikos quest is a great Lunar project, after all, can't imagine anyone that tries to strengthen Valind being too popular.

        Actually, the Red Goddess cult probably are very much in agreement on matters of doctrine (due to the efforts of the Examiners to maintain the orthodoxy), and probably are just about everywhere. But they are such a tiny minority they don't make a whole lot of difference (and the non-Red Goddess Lunars probably don't understand what the Red Goddess ones are on about, with their blathering about Gerra and Natha and Veritherusa).
