Agree wholeheartedly.

Whilst I would never suggest what reciprocation a follower might

receive from his patron for loyal service of course your

point of it being a two way thing is totally correct.

The only point in differentiation I would make in my own circumstance

is that whilst I am eternally grateful for the support of my patron

through difficult periods over the years, I did not seek his

patronage for those reasons and would have acted in support of

as a natural thing to do.

Obviously there must be circumstances where certain divinities

do not provide the support a mortal might hope for and those

poor souls must reach their own solution over such circumstances.
