        Which would tend to beg the question of where those lumps of dead
Genert that are discovered from time to time come from. I think you are
drawing a long bow on the 'Genert is just a story' idea.

>Er... Lunars don't dislike Valind?

        I'm with you Martin. Lunars acknowledge Valinds existence, but that
doesn't mean in general they like him. Suppression of the power of Valind
via the Kallikos quest is a great Lunar project, after all, can't imagine
anyone that tries to strengthen Valind being too popular.

        Actually, the Red Goddess cult probably are very much in agreement
on matters of doctrine (due to the efforts of the Examiners to maintain the
orthodoxy), and probably are just about everywhere. But they are such a
tiny minority they don't make a whole lot of difference (and the non-Red

Goddess Lunars probably don't understand what the Red Goddess ones are on
about, with their blathering about Gerra and Natha and Veritherusa).

        Cheers
