Not to all the tribes, surely, but only to a small handful; while in turn, you are owed a roughly equal number. I found, for instance, that when I owed favors and paid them off in excess, my reputation increased, both with that group, and in general. Lacking the opportunity to owe, I would have no ability to show my generosity, an important trait of leaders.
