Daingean and I have been discussing this for a while. We're both of the opinion that an org's patron/matron should be chosen because of the God in question fits the RP of said organization. (which is why both of our guilds are Auresian, despite her inactivity)
This poses the small problem of said God going inactive and orgs suddenly not having reliable access to favours (which seriously effects our bashing and pvpers). I know a lot of orgs combat this by changing their Patron to an active God, but in certain cases that is...really crappy. Some guilds have a God that fits them so perfectly, they shouldn't ever even consider changing Patron. (Teradrim/Ivoln. Templar, Daru and Luminaries/Auresae. Sentinels, Shamans/Haern. I'd even go so far as to say Carnifex/Iosyne.)
This bring me to my actual point here. I'd like it if, somehow, orgs/orders of inactive Gods could petition said Divinity mechanically to bless them. Not being in an order with an active God, or being a member of a guild/city who's God goes inactive shouldn't make you weaker than other people because they're willing to switch orgs/patrons on a whim.
Input? Thoughts? No, bad Alistaire? Tell me what you think, guys.
