Let me clarify that even further -
When your hero goes to a community for support in a HQ, *that group* needs to have a guardian to carry *their* prayers/aid into the other world to help the Hero. The hero doesn't necessarily need a guardian of his own to be a "recieving station".
Oddi goes to his family, saying "Be the Bag of Dust to help me fight the three-handed demon". His family has a guardian (actually their Ancestors), so they can help.
Oddi goes to the Clan Warband and asks them to lend their Strength during the Collapsing Ceiling of Night episode. They have a warband wyter, so they can help.
Oddi goes to his buddies (two Bison riders, a Sun dome Templar, an Uroxi Duck and a Troll) for help in the Seduction of the Goddess part. They haven't yet gotten a guardian for their little band. Oops, unless they want to accompany Oddi to the Otherworld, he can't get help from them!
It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
