In either setting, there would be no possibility for ruling provinces, except/unless a province had dropped in level due to plague or war, then rule province could be used to restore levels.
I really like this move for this game. The politics of province growth often dominate games, and also leads to weirdly quick population explosions. Taking province growth off the table makes a new kind of game (and, most importantly, encourages holding contesting as you can't rely on pop growth to expand.)

It is a part of the Gnollish followers of The Herald, god of the Bard.

Will we be able to see source holdings before we give our preferences?

Just at the level of rumours would make sense. Sources are still hidden, so non-source regents (and distant source regents) shouldn't know where they are unless they've been told.

Will the Gods be changing, based on the no growth mechanics balance, and the mechanics that dealt with shrines? Will the god builds be made public?

Yes, Gods will be made public. Might tweak them a little for balance, but Population Growth is still very important, especially in the cities - if they ever drop from plague or war, it will be extremely difficult to rule them back up without it.

They will be re-hidden after domain selection. It is for purposes of being able to see the domains, not for knowledge of contesting etc
