No. I believe that Heortlings use the word "spirit." The entity may in fact be a daimone, according to the Hero Wars rules, but I'm not going to introduce such a term, especially since a significant number of our players aren't already Glorantha fans.

And since they are sacrificing to a daimone, it's not misapplied.

There are also nearly 300 years that pass, so some cultural differences can be explained this way.
