What do you think about merging this article with Mystra (Midnight), and Mystra? I think, if done well, this could be a worthy Featured Article. Does this sound feasible? Or, do you think they should be kept as three separate articles? I volunteer to take the first pass at it either way (i.e., try to combine the articles or clean up each of the three separate ones), but I'd like to get a consensus before I start.—Moviesign (talk) 02:01, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Applying your skills to these pages would be excellent! But, I'd be completely opposed to a merger. To me, Mystryl, Mystra, and Mystra/Midnight are wholly separate characters: separate histories, alignments, and identities. Merging them would become way too long, confusing and unwieldy. It would always be unclear which Mystra a given paragraph is talking about. I'd rather see them remain separate pages. The church-related stuff, largely the same throughout, could be a separate page to avoid repetition across the three goddesses. Darkwynters and I discussed this sort of thing a bit at Talk:Church of Bane. — BadCatMan (talk) 02:28, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
So what standardized name should we give to the pages that describe the followers and worshipers of a deity? Church of Deity, Followers of Deity, or maybe Worshipers of Deity? I'm thinking Followers of... which could be a redirect if there is an official organization page, such as Church of Bane. (I just checked, we have five pages that begin with Church of... and three categories that start with Worshipers of..., but nothing that starts with Followers of...)—Moviesign (talk) 15:16, July 6, 2013 (UTC)
Unless there is an official overall name given in the source, my preference is for "church of X", as in church of Mystra, with the lower-case as it's not official. For some, "cult of X" could also work. This would depend on how the source material discusses them. "Church", "cult" or the like fully express the page is an organization. I don't know if any Realms gods have a "Mystranity" or "Tyrism" term.
"Followers" or "Worshipers" is perhaps a bit too general to me, seeming to cover regular folk who adopt them as a patron deity or just pray now and then. It's more a group of people than a proper organization (though some faiths are unorganised, they are still effectively an organisation). Alternatively, there's always the words used in the sources for their all followers, priests, and lay-worshipers: Mystrans, Banites, Tyrrans, etc., but I think that's much the same. — BadCatMan (talk) 01:44, July 7, 2013 (UTC)
I agree... because "most" of the sourcebooks have "Church" as one of the bold headings, such as page 49 of the Netheril: Empire of Magic: The Winds of Netheril... and page 24 of the Faiths & Avatars sourcebook states "Church" as well... my two cents :) - Darkwynters (talk) 06:06, July 7, 2013 (UTC)
Okay "church of Mystryl" it is.—Moviesign (talk) 13:01, July 7, 2013 (UTC)
