Nick Brooke on Yanafali:

>(heroic individual scimitarsmen: "adventurers", for want of a better word).

I guess a lot of these are ersatz-Orlanth Adventurous worshippers who saw
the wisdom in the Lunar Way. Many converts in the Provinces ought to
gravitate towards Yanafal, IMO - projecting all their barbarian concepts of
honour to this cult. The officer cult does play a certain role in this
popularity, giving a splendid example of good and honourable conduct (at
least the majority tries to). And in Tarsh this might have worked the other
way around as well, explaining Fazzur's large following of crack officers.
(But then Tarsh has also spawned the Phargantites.)
