Or maybe those are the myths they reenact in Orlanth temples during Sacred Time? Maybe all the local priests and worshipers of the Lightbringer cults get together to reenact these myths collectively to pool resources???

By the way: Any ideas as to how to "play" the reenactment in a interesting way other than reading the myth aloud to the players? (They are only initiates).

I see Krogar more like a cautious guy, as described in "Strangers in Prax".

What about Humakt?

More questions:
Could a Sartarite humakti initiate (who can't reach a theist temple of Humakt) worship his god during the High Holy Day in Tourney Altar together with the animistic "Iron Man" praxians?

And the other way round? E.g. is an animistic worshiper of the "Iron Man" totally out of place in a proper temple of Humakt?
