        I think that there aren't enough Humakti to form regiments. Most Heortling mercenaries belong to Orlanth Adventurous or Hedkoranth (sp?) but Humakt is much too demanding for most people. OTOH the idea of a mercenary warband such as the Silver Daggers of Katherine Kerr's Deverry series is enticing. An exiled, disgraced warrior looking for redemption is a perfect candidate for the cult, IMO. After all an outlaw in Heortling society is already more or less dead, no?
