 To my mind occurs the viking reaction to homosexuality: the passive
 partner is not considered 'manly man' no more. This could well be
 the case in Sartar. Ulerian temples would very likely then have lots
 of male initiates. I think even then the two sexes would have different
 positions and statuses in temple hierarchy, just what they would be,
 I have no idea.

 I always had in my campaign the Ulerians sell anti-pregnangy roots
 and stuff like that. (I have no faintes idea what people used in
 RW medieval times.) Curiously the female PC's ended up being the
 sole purchasers! Well, we had some lucky fathers.

 Talking to the priestess from behind a curtain sounds familiar.
