Runs with further information about Southern Gods:

Tell us what you know about the Southern pantheon.
They name a number of southern gods: Yama, Ratri, Vishnu, Brahma, Shiva, Kali, Ganesh. They are pretty sure either of Vishnu or Brahma are in charge, and that Kali wants to be, but they don’t know details. Dealing with Yama is in many ways more like dealing with a spirit or a demon rather than dealing like a mortal. We are sure that he is not using the ghosts against the Empire; for him to be doing that would require him to be false in this sort of bargain in a way that we do not believe is possible. We do not think he is working with Kali.
