Piggybacking on you role playing theme...
I don't think the time and effort was put into giving each tribe a varied and unique religious viewpoint was just for window dressing.
Depending on how lore-wise the ruler wishes to be may be a major factor in the views of mixed/minority religions in any given area.
The most obvious culture for conflict would be The Waerd, as they are essentially a theocracy, but Casp has hinted on a few occasions that the Hrothi take their role as "The Shields of The Faith" very seriously and that this belief may play a very significant role in the underlying world story.
I think it is there for us to take and do with it what we will.
I really do hope that some leaders are going to be proactive and really step into this issue fully, as it has proven to be a great "story driver" for our own planet, and has great promise to do the same for Elyria.
