A while ago, certain mercenary groups made there services available to the cult for assistance.
Who they were is of no concern to you, but needless to say Benekander was not among the mercs used. I sure Culinanes contact in Thakria will probably be able to quote the Thakrian BB word for word to identify them, but that is neither here nor there.
If the gods feel someone has cheated, then I am sure they will punish that person. This has been evident already in the last few days and should be left for them to decide.
The accusations have been made, let the gods decide if they feel it is worth their involvment.
