I don't think it was like that. The impression I get is a native
Malkioni population lead by a Bishop Cyril of Alexandira figure
who incites his flock into having a pagan Hypatia figure (with
artificial beard) skinned alive with clam shells. The Baader-Meinhof
recieved heavy support from East Germany.

Perhaps. I myself think these disturbances are riots between two ethnic
groups in Nochet. Historical parallels would be the Greeks versus the
jews in Alexandria, the Christians versus the Pagans in Alexandria,
the Monophysites versus Greek Orthodox in Alexandria... I can think of
a few modern Indian parallels but I think my point is made.

I've dealt with the Stygian Library elsewhere (I think it's at
the City of Black Glass). But I should point out that the God
Learners have opened a school that taught Auld Wyrmish in Nochet.
It is this school that becomes the centre of God Learner influence
in Nochet IMO and that the Great Lhankor Mhy Temple is a seperate
institution reflecting native beliefs.
