Evil Ghosts in Seshnela? I'm finding that hard to believe. I could accept independent invention in Dorastor or the Nargan, although I think any appearance of a cannibal cult in Dorastor is more likely to be brought there by visiting Praxians. But there's no real history of evil ghosts in Seshnela and thus I doubt the Pendali would have invented the cannibal cult by themselves.
And furthermore I don't believe that an independent invention will yield exactly the same cult - I expect them to be as different as Lodril, Solf and Balumbasta.
