I thought Lodril still was the god of the men in the undifferentiated mob (many of the relevant holy days are his), but that most of these Dara Happans were lay members of his cult rather than initiates

> Most normal Dara Happans do not initiate to any deity but maintain an active religious life by attending the thirty imperial holy days, the holy days of their city or region, and whatever casual worship might benefit them in their day to day life.

This is really interesting. Sounds like the old understanding of "Lodril" being the patron of the undifferentiated urban mob has shifted? Do normal Dara Happans initiate at all?
