Well, that's exactly what you DO have to do if the adventure doesn't fit with their cult obligations, that's the point of it. Of course, there are lots of ways round it, multiple characters are obvious, and my first choice as a player. two or three with differing obligations and skills, one the 'major' character, the others to fill in when he/she is unavailable.
Another is fitting the character's obligations into the adventure - devotees don't all have to sit around in a temple chanting mantras and contemplating their navels, Uroxi (when we get to see them) will spend a lot of their time out hunting chaos, whether they like it or not!
