Could be. I can't recall reading anything more specific than "northern Ralios". Do you have a source that's more exact?

OK, that leaves that option open as well.

Well, it could have been Orlanthi visitors from other regions. If adoption of the cult was somewhat unplanned and patchwork, we have a good excuse for any fun local variations we might want to dream up...

How? Talor was a Malkioni, wasn't he? In the sense that he wasn't Arkat it was of course an improvement, but it still seems to me that Aringor would have had to do some pretty fast talking to drum up support for his LBQ. Many East Wilders would initially be very sceptical of it.

There's hints about some in Karia. But otherwise, not a whole lot. Which leads me to believe that Urox is a very minor cult there. Bovine associations to Bemuri roots notwithstanding. You don't worship a god whose magic is no use to you just out of nostalgia...
