I have the impression the Pentans are as mixed as the Grazers were -- the Hero Wars writeup suggests to me that until the time of the FHQ, Grazers had begun sacrificial worship (spurred on by the example of their vendref). This was a major source of the religious struggles [King of Sartar p.113].

I'm not sure why pure animists have to integrate, but Grazers certainly do. You just have to be of the right age group (note that Jardan the Warrior teaches Spirit Combat so that you *can* integrate).

I don't think so, though 1) it's in Enclosure 1, which I think is still available; 2) it's much the same as Pendragon.
