0011888: Priests aren't spawning in generated temples
Generated temples in adv mode are vacant w/ the exception of visitors. High priests are not present in the temples they're supposed to rule from. Regular priests and most high priests are also absent. They don't appear to spawn elsewhere such as shrines. Legends provide no indication that the priests are dead, missing or at another site.

Only affects religions w/ temples. Priests of templeless religions can be found in keeps or at random locations in gen fortresses.

Non-ruined temples apply.

Civs for region2 are:
The Insightful Kingdoms (Fortressjuggle)
The Doors of Deification (Kingdomflags)

More context for 1st note for The Communion of Mining ex: when starting at a site, you start w/ a list in the log menu (People tab) of all the known inhabitants. I used this list to find out who the current priests are for each site.

Forgot to put sign on 0011641

religion: The Tin Doctrines
temple: The Cathedral of Diamonds in Buffjested, town, of The Confederations of Cream
high priest: holy abyss Cana Tealblazes
priests: sacred walls Besmar Rimsummits & Dodók Crystalweavers

Worldgen fortress temples appear to lack ruling high priests altogether, so Cequova wasn't a one-off.
