It depnds on the spirit or god in question. Check the rules on misaplied worship for details and ideas.

As I said, I think that there would be spirits becoming available. But in the case of some of the things avaible through these spirit cults, they may be minor godlings.

I'd rule on a case by case basis. Or let the fine folks strugglign with PraxPack come up with something....?
