Whoa. That few? I'm guessing that many players, espially eq-RQers, will want to be disciples. Which means a group of them will be *big* news in the Dragon Pass area.

Most cults don't? Any ideas which do/don't?

Eg., what about Issaries and Lhankor My? Or is it a warrior cult thing (I hope not)?

Anybody ever venture a semi-offical opinion on how many RQ runelords there were? Just wondering how much of a change this is.
