Yes, the Malkioni have a qualitatively different approach
to their religion. They believe that all theistic and shamanistic
religions are materialistic, stuck on a lower plane, while their own
contacts a higher existence. If they're right, then their religion
_is_, by their lights, the only true Gloranthan religion. No one
else gets to Solace in Glory.

Quite a bit, really. Think about it.
