I think they're syncretic, but not quite to _that_ extent: I reckon they
can worship at the Paps by essentially 'identifying' Uralda and Eiritha
(one may quibble about how explictly they do this, and by what name they
call her, etc, but I think the basic idea is sound); I don't think they
worship Waha, as such... At least not as their 'cultural hero': maybe
they have a more specialised butchery cult of Waha? (I know that's his
epithet anyway, but the Prxian cult is a good deal broader.)

Cheers,
Alex.
