I'd say "we don't".

KoS 138, on the cult of Sartar, says that "his magics worked for his heirs to the kingdom". Yes, "The spirit of Sartar continued to live on in the hearts and souls of his people", but the paragraph inclines me to understand that active, magic-granting worship of Sartar is only done by his family, and quite possibly the magic *only* works for the heir, not even his brothers/sisters/children until they ascend the throne on their own.

It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
