And if what you're getting at is that characters still have things they can do well without their magic, I'm totally on board. I have no idea what a Pavis Devotee would likely be like outside of the devotion, but there's the whole subject of his occupation, which isn't neccessarily priest. Someone mentioned diplomat, which would make for a cool character concept in this case, IMO. Yes it means he's away from his beloved Pavis a lot, but perhaps because he intends to improve his God's lot by dealiing with outsiders with his mundane talents.

Yeah, magic is an important part of every character in Glorantha - it's just not the only thing. Again, some players will see that as a challenge, and others as something that makes the character something they don't want to play.
