I puzzled over this for a moment and then realized ...

I'd assume "Finovan Adventurous". Another subcult of the same aspect would get an improv penalty (probably -1), another aspect likewise (maybe -3) and so forth.

(I'd let him take "Initiate to Orlanth Adventurous" but give him improv penalties to all subcults, inculding Finovan, say at -1).

If he wanted to. It is probably not in his interest as he can improvise from a single higher ability.

(Improvision must be the way it works, because I can't see how else a small number of godi could initiate even the majority of Orlanthi).
