What I really meant was 'are they Orlanth Rex because they are in charge or are they in charge because they are Orlanth Rex? This cult really does support your abilities if you're striving to be in a position of authority and if you're in such a position, joining the cult is expected. I just find it interesting...

The writeup I have is clan leader or king. I'd certainly let those on the Ring join (it seems like a good way to get the blesings you need to eventually lead. I'd say its not the Outer Ring unless there was an overriding reason for that person to be O.Rex -- some social position, perhaps.

Don't have a copy of Enclosure, sigh...
