True, but under the 'new' description of devotee practice (going about doing things your god did, not just sitting about being holy), a lot of time they will be combining follower duties with being devotees. A Vingan following a Vingan, for instance; if the hero is fulfilling cult duties (defending the stead, for instance), so is the follower. A Bevaran following a warrior is following her calling by healing him (and any others with him). A Donadari follower is, of course, composing new tales of heoism("Denis Moore, Denis Moore, ...").
