Heh heh. Uz Know. Uz Know All.
Still, Wulf, I don't see why a culture can't have a Yelm or whoever as an important figure in their culture and myth without offering worship. It's not that pre-Elmali Orlanthi deny that Yelm exists - it's just that they consider him to be unworthy of their POW... He's still there, whether they worship him or not, cos Orlanth deigned to let him be there..
And there's no reason a religion shouldn't contain 'hypocrisy' is there?
