Yup, sometimes divinations are correct :-)

I've never run out of sheep in a game I've won. Yes, blessings are good, but you don't need to have every temple built to win the game.

They are various venerated objects. Could be actual items owned by the clan founder, magic items no one remembers how to use, things of historic value (the door-pillars from the first clan hall), etc. Or just items that bring a little luck (note that clan magic goes down when the regalia is lost).
