I agree with Roderick and disagree with Donald here. An initiation to a specific god or religion is not something you can fake - it creates a divine connection between you and the gods in question. When a Lhankor Mhy initiate uses his magic - he is Lhankor Mhy. Same thing with Irippi Ontor.

Giving yourself a divine connection to the Red Moon (through one of the Seven Mothers) will sever your connection to LM (and the rest of the Storm Tribe) - the Moon connection is just incompatible with the Storm Tribe.
