Hello again folks,

Now that I've been planning my campaign in Vogai a bit more, this kind of a question came to my mind. So I was wondering is there how much pagan worshipping in Seshnela and especially in Vogai.

Seshna worshipping seems to be quite popular in that area as there is the holy place for her, Pichauve. But how the religious authorities see the Seshna worshipping there? Do the authorities try to remove the cult among the common folk, or is it acceptable in any way?

Then the other paganic worshippings and traditions. Is it easy for some peasants to turn to worship a local spirit, or does the church watch the peasant caste so tightly that this kind of a spirit worshipping is very rare? But for example in a small village with a small church and probably with only one priest there it might be a tough task to guard the people this tight.

In my campaign I have added an old forest in Vogai, and inhabitants in this forrest are aldryami, who else? :). Then I added a small peasant village near that forest, so this made me really to think that the people of that village probably has something to do with that forest and maybe they secretly do sacrifices to the sprits of that forest.
