4) Accept that chieftains who don't come from Orlanth Allfather/Ernalda Allmother are at a certain disadvantage. They'll be missing some specialty magic which is very useful if you're running a clan or tribe. But that seems fair, since the people who *are* in Orlanth Allfather/Ernalda Allmother are getting some magic that's bloody useless *unless* you're running a clan or a tribe. It's the old specialization tradeoff again--give up flexibility and you get more power at the thing you specialize in.
