Hmmm. Yes, with Worship being such an easy skill to raise, I'd be concerned. However if you only allow the initiate to use shared or similar *AFFINITIES* then we could probably do this.

Remember, a magical affinity is a kind of magic you know how to do. If you don't know the affinity, then you don't have a lot of luck with that sort of magic.

At that point, a -15 penalty would work fine. Afterall, Affinities are VERY expensive to raise and a Worship Skill can be raised very, very readily.
