To some extent, this is true. But in the end, you meet the God and make your bargain. And the more one tries to control such a ritual through proxies, the less power it has. Conversely, something wild and crazy like Harmast's initiation resulted in him going very, very far astray and very, very deep into the God Plane.

Deep enough to have a personal experience with the Great Ones...
