I'd say both. It would vary from city to city, depending upon the influence of each god in that particular city. You might even have an independent temple to Zodal that contains a shrine to Rao, since there's no other Rao-an temple in the city. _________________ ~basiliv

haha funny way to end a thread, still a good topic though.
I'd imagine there would be more than one case of sub-shrines within temples to deities sponsored by their superiors. Otherwise these lesser religions would be nearly forgotten. Mayaheine, being foreign to Oerth would've had to have found her start in Pelor's temple and so forth.
The Cathedral of the Aerdy Orthodox Church is dedicated to most of the pantheon of deities worshipped in South Province (the Draken Pantheon). The interior of the pantheistic cathedral is a central "courtyard" space with shrines set up all around it. The more dominant deities, Zilchus and Hextor, have the largest shrines, each taking up a wing of the cathedral. Other deities, like Pelor, have an individual shrine. Still other deities are "lumped together" and share shrine space. Fharlanghn and Celestian not only have a shrine split between them, but it also contains a small altar to Geshtai, the foreign goddess who's following traveled to this area (hence her inclusion in this travel-themed grouping).
