Thansk for the responses so far.
Given these premises what kind of temples would be around for giving
magical support
(regaining of Rune spells, Orlanthi rites, initiations, Runelord rites) in
Sartar and
 Dragon Pass area.  Where would there be major and/or minor temples left.
Seems to me
that Orlanth and its runelords and initiates would be pretty much in ropes if
all the temples and holy sites are destroyed or inoperative at this stage
 just before the Hero Wars.  Surely there are hilltop temples here and
there, perhaps
moving every once in a while? The status of those temples would be minor
IMO. Would this
fit into your idea of Sartar under occupation.
