Of course, the totemic daemon approach right next to the totemic spirits has been endemic, too.

The Malkioni at least didn't know any difference between Sacrifice and animistic rites, or they'd hardly have classified Genner among the False Gods and basically the origin of Worlath's ability to receive sacrifice. A bit funny, since they had first hand contact with the animist beast totem people (of Seshnela) as well as the theist ones (of Fronela).
