>I imagine that any places of worship to the Red Moon would be destroyed, that much the rebels would insist on. I'd guess most of the shrines to the Seven Mothers would also disappear, but in places where that cult has become popular again there is the issue of 'if they behave themselves, do we need to spend the lives and magic it would take to force them out?' I suspect that most other specifically lunar cults would have had most of their shrines associated with either Red Goddess or Seven Mothers shrines, and would follow their fates (or they were mobile shrines associated with military units and the like, that will leave with the regiments). Which means that followers of non-red-goddess lunar cults may have few to no places of worship left.

"What? The Seven Mothers? No, of course we don't worship them. Filthy chaos Lunar scum." *spits*. "We worship the Seven Lightbringers - Orlanth Xaron, Chalana Deezola, Irripi Mhy, Etyries, Yanafal Humakt, Flesh Girl and Ginna-Who-Waits.

"Just ask Prince Argrath - he was very interested in the magical support we offered him to use in his next campaign, and Argrath wouldn't accept help from Lunars, would he?"

(For a parallel, look at all the Celtic gods and goddesses who got turned into Christian saints after the conversion of the country.)
